Ah, there's the catch right there! Apparently it's not $47, it's $62. The $47 is some special saver club. Good grief that is inflated as all get out.

I so owe you one for directing me to those. I am so getting one.

What about a blind turner? You know, the little sticks you twist to open or close the blinds?

Although I'm not sure my fiance would appreciate not being able to open or close the blinds anymore than husbands and fathers would appreciate stolen (and expensive) golf clubs! LOL
Ha-ha! I remember going with just the tree stick when I was a kid. Worked wonder. However these days I can only go with those good handlers (like real whips/sticks offer) or I pull the skin off the fingers.

I try to limit my visits to Dover. Too many things I want to buy (and too little money). Lol! I ALWAYS look at pads there and sit in couple higher end saddles.

Foal
I just paid $1.50 for a fiberglass fence pole at Fleet Farm.. ha ha "Ripped off" two of the black caps that covered their ends and super-glued them to both ends after drilling a hole through one so I could get a string through there. Then I wrapped some electrical tape around the bottom of the cap things so it had a little more bulk for a handle. Then I whipped up my own leather popper from scrap leather laying around. Works a charm and it didn't even cost me $7. And it only took all of 10 minutes to do. The sting was some rope I had lying around and the leather was left over from making chinks, and the electrical tape I ripped off from my grandpa.

I love it and it doesn't even look half bad actually and its lasted for years.

Smrobs, are you talking about those beef show sticks with the little hookers on them? Beef - Show Sticks I've seen my grandpa use those on the occasional "difficult-to-cinch" horse.

I guarantee your horse is not longer than mine. When I want him to move his hind end I step towards the back and say my cue and snap my fingers. If I need to poke him to get a little more movement I will do that. I have used the long whip as well. But I'm not buying a carrot stick or any other sort of what I consider is ridiculous equipment that you can buy cheaper or make yourself.

Cost of branch? 0.00 dollars
Getting the same results as a $60.00 carrot stick: PRICELESS

Hmmm...my dressage whip is rather rigid...what is a carrot stick like? Is it whip like or stick like?

I usually hold the whip by the popper and push with the handle. Works great for sideways movements.

OK everyone, time for the bed (as I have to get up at 5 am). So good night to everyone! Wish you all to see bright yellow carrot sticks in your dreams (or nightmares?) tonight!

Stick like. I have couple dressage whips, they are not nearly as rigid. And that's what I like about it (besides the color of course, which was #1 reason to buy it)!

Still cheaper than a carrot stick.
