Last time I checked, carrot sticks were $32. At least, the ones direct from the Parellis. Is yours generic?
The only real reason why I made that bet, believe me, had I not seen that price tag a while back I'd have never dreamed they'd charge that for the sticks.
Regardless...I still think it's a glorified whip. ;) ALTHOUGH, I do wish dressage whips came in bright colors like that. I'd love it for schooling at home. Me and the pony have a "bright color" theme, and almost all I wear to ride is tie dye shirts. Rainbow colored dressage.
