  1. Love the graphic! Was using this as my FB profile pic until recently. Just cracks me up! The cat looks like he is wishing a bad outcome on the joker who put this thing on his head…

  2. Great idea! Now that we have our own place and will have one or two packers who just about anyone can ride at our house I want to buy a backup helmet to have in case I do have a fall, as well as in case anyone comes by to ride. I was actually thinking of going with a small, medium and large to have on hand plus maybe a kid-sized helmet… I won’t let anyone ride a horse w/out a helmet when it comes to my horses. Period!
