Hello All,
I've been trying to track down Alf Caldwell at the rubberman and haven't gotten a response. Does anyone know where one can obtain stall mats? I've done a search, and someone indicated you can get them at Tractor Supply stores. Is that accurate? I live in Charleston WV and I'm not aware of any equine places in the surrounding areas. Just thought I'd ask.

All the best,
Arden

Arden- If they have them here, you will find them in Charleston. Any Tractor Supply has them.

yup, tractor supply outlet. A word of advice, the mats are pretty awkward to move around. Take a couple of pairs of vice grips with you to use as handles. Much easier to work with

This is true, but there's something to be said about the public viewing of a someone trying to dry hump a stall mat into the back of a jeep :rm_shifty:

Appologies.

I'm sure the Ax-man, being a lumberjack and all, looks way more at home in the tractor supply store than my city boy son and I did. Still, I wouldn't wish that on anybody.

Maybe if we weren't loading them into the back of a Honda Element...

you guys are cracking me up......I understand the darn things weigh about 100 pounds a piece. I'm going to need about six or eight of them. Thank gawd I have a full sized pick up.

Hey, you guys will appreciate this. I was out getting training wood last weekend. I swear, I've got to get a group of you guys together for one of my wood runs. It breaths crossfit silliness. Anyway, so I cut this 24" on the stump rock up into 11 26" blocks. Short fat tree, I know. I rolled them down to my truck and then proceeded to lift the big fat blocks into my truck as though I was lifting atlas stones. I would pick the block up with one corner on the ground. Lift it off the ground, and set it on my knees. Then reposition my grip and hip it into the back of my truck. I kid you not that last log must have weighed 400 pounds. It nearly killed me. Needless to say, after I did that......I was done. The blocks were so freakin big, I had to make three trips. I could only get four in the back of my full sized pick up. I love the silliness. I was bruised to all heck though. My biceps and legs took the brunt of it. But it was fun.

Thanks for everything!!!

All the best,
Arden
