Saddle for Sale and Info Wanted!

I have a 19″ Borelli cutback saddle for sale. Surprisingly nice leather, brand new and show quality. If you would like pictures, email me at bethany.towne@yahoo.com. Asking $500 – make an offer! Also- does anyone have information on the stallion Black Tuxedo By Armani? I have a filly sired by him, and she was originally bought…

Blankets

I have a couple of Weatherbeeta winter blankets for my horse and I like them. So I bought him a Weatherbeeta turnout sheet, but it fits awkwardly around the neck. It looks like it’s putting pressure on his withers, but if I loosen the chest buckles, it just seems to be too loose around the…

Tim O’Gorman

I’ve just been informed that Tim O’Gorman passed away peacefully last night in his sleep.  This is all I know at this time. I can understand if his loved ones would prefer to go through this quietly, but if anyone has information on where to send cards, flowers, etc, I’m sure there are many folks…

Cochran Auction

Isn’t it rather quiet on here lately?  Doesn’t anyone have anything to say about Nationals?  Did you have fun?  Was it what you expected, hoped for, dreamed of?

Long winded post about me :)

After 11  years of not owning my own horse, I am finally gearing up to take the plunge and buy a horse. I am hoping to make this purchase in early spring/late winter of 2010, but in the meantime am searching my heart out. I am on a huge budget as far as purchase price. I…

Cochran’s

Is anyone out there going to be at Cochran’s?  I’m planning on going as “reporter in the field” for Above Level, haha.  So, I’m not bringing my checkbook, but I’d love to catch up with anyone else who will be there. -Erin
