    Thanks for that, will go and check out some of the more local ones, don't really think sending to a big one & them flogging them off cheap would be a good thing for her to do Just wanted to know if they would take rugs as a donation .

    Giving rugs to charity ?

    I think she would quite happily wash / re proof them. Its a hassle to sell on e bay so think she wants just to give to some one less fortunate than herself/charity . Said I would ask on here for her. They are 5ft 3 ( i think )

    Does anyone have these? (Woof boots - for rider!)

    I have them for winter too ! Great for general yard work and keeping feet toasty, have to agree about puddles though ! I had mine last Oct and wore them every day in the winter ( I do 5 horses a day ) They are still going strong, I bunged them in the washing machine and they came up lovely.
