    Glow-in-the-Dark tack

    Okay, so my ponykins has switched to treeless and we are now in need of all of the fun gadgets to go with it, namely a breastplate and crupper to keep the little sucker from just slipping around on hilly rides. While looking around, I caught rumor of Glow-in-the-Dark materials made by Biothane and Zilco, but at present, it doesn't appear that either company carries them. Does anyone know if there were problems with it? Or was it just too expensive and not common enough to continue production? I read somewhere that at least the Biothane one was weaker and could therefore only be used as a overlay, rather than any structural part. A couple of places appear to still carry it, with one small shop still selling some older Zilco padded breastplates made completely of gloBelt with the waffle lining. Anyone have experience with the glow materials. Would it be unsafe for a breastplate to be made of the GloBelt (so it is bearing the weight)? How well does it really glow?

    Anyone with them have pictures both in regular light and at night? I plan to get him just a plain black crupper, but a glowing breastplate would be fun and go so well with his glow-in-the-dark rope halter.

    I have no answers for your questions but could you imagine the ghost horse/headless horseman news articles and reports by people?

    That would be slightly comical.

    We that with the glow in the dark ball that my dogs plays with. You see it go up, then you say, "Drop the Ball!" to Pyg, she drops it, then picks it up--looks like a moving ghost.
