First, love the thread!

Second, for the poster who wanted a colorful dressage whip, I bought mine on eBay. WAYY cheaper than Dover. They come in different sizes and are all good quality. I had a yellow one before the horses ate it [they broke into the barn and ate my whip, sad day...] and I have a pink one now. I think I spent... $7 total?

Third, PP is certainly a fruitcake. Very accurate description. =D

No, no, sweet pie is more appropriate here! Or at least for his half.

Riccil0ve, thanks! I didn't think about eBay. The thing I really like about Dover - you can return it if you don't like (even if used although I never returned the used item). I believe I even switched whips couple times before stopped on that blue + silver.

Oh, I don't mean to dis on Dover. I LOVE Dover. I buy all my halters there. And everything else, haha. If you can find the things you want at the right time, the sales are amazing, the shipping is great [I'm on the other side of the states], and the product is always outstanding quality. The few times they've sent me the wrong item or were late for shipping, they've accommodated me nicely. Dover ftw!

However, I also love my $3 whips and $20 bridle [that was with shipping!] that I found on eBay. Four years later, my bridle is going strong, and if the girls didn't eat my first whip, I'd still have my own banana stick. =]

Funny thing, though. My friend has the worst luck with Dover. The few times she's gotten anything there, it was either back-ordered several months, or all of a sudden out of stock. She bought me breeches from them over a year ago, they should have been here in November, then April, and here we are in September and still no breeches, haha.

TOTALLY off topic, but riccil0ve, the horse in your avatar is wearing the same halter I have for Jack. Same color and everything. The irony!

I didn't even think about ebay, but it's definitely worth a look around! They do have good stuff!

Too funny! I got two identical halters for the price of one. For the most part, not many people put their horses in yellow, but it's one if my favorite colors. Her saddle pad and polo wraps are also yellow. =]

Yellow looks good on your horse. I bet it would look good on Gracie but do not think it would look good on Cassie. Have to have the right color on the right horse.
