    I am looking for a pair of brown ladies spurs with rowels for my cow horse.
    I am also looking for some split reins that have a little weight to them.
    I am also looking for some back on track knee boots, 76 blanket, neck cover, 12″ quick wraps
    All for trade or cheap.

    I have a few pairs of split reins that are light weight. Are you looking or show quality or just for practice and schooling?

    Can you send a picture and no bling on them. Just for riding at home. How much?

    Are you looking for a turn-out blanket or a stall blanket?

    Euro cut fly sheet with two belly straps

    Euro Cut blankets, etc. almost always come in 3″ increment sizing, such as 69-72-75-78-81-84-87.

    76″ blankets, etc. are normally part of 2″ increment American sizing system, such as 68-70-72-74-76-78-80-82-84-86-88.

    I suspect you will have some trouble trying to find a Euro Cut 76″ flysheet, or anything else.

    How did you measure your horse? Euro Cut blankets are measured from the center of the chest to the outside edge of one back leg, with the horse standing square. The 2″ increment sized blankets are measured from the center of the chest to the butt crack. Because they are measured differently, the 3 sizes that occur in both systems (70-78-84) will not be the same size blanket in both systems, with the Euro Cut blankets typically being bigger than the 2″ increment sized blankets, particularly with reference to the 3 sizes that exist in both systems. Many 75″ Euro Cut blankets will be approximately the same size as a 76″ 2″ increment sized blanket. However, typically the chest is larger on the Euro Cut blankets, so while a 75″ Euro Cut blanket might fit a chunkier horse that usually wears a 76″, such as a warm blood or AQHA, the chest may be too big on a narrower horse, such as an Arabian or a TB. Which breed is your horse and is he/she typical for that breed?

    I will check what I have in stock and see if I have anything that might fit your horse.

    Send pictures and a 75″ would work too

    Stateline Tack (Statelinetack.com) has a “mesh” flysheet on sale for $42.70, and I think this material is some version of Textilene. Textilene and the white jersey material from Schneiders & State Line are the only 2 materials I have found that will hold up for more than one summer. It is from Tough-1, not usually one of my favorit blanket makers, but their T/O flysheets might be sturdier than their winter T/O’s, or perhaps I just tend to see the 600D winter T/O’s from them, which do not hold up.

    I do have one 76″ Textilene T/O flysheet, but I will need to wait until the weather improves enough to take photos outdoors. This T/O flysheet has never been used, asking price $70 + shipping, but it is Textilene.

    If you are interested, let me know, as otherwise I will take it to a tack sale on 16 April.
