1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    THIS IS WAY OFF TOPIC>>>>

    For any of you sheep herders or ranchers....

    I'm trying to find a sheep skin to use for a motorcycle seat cover. Must be 20" by 30" or so.

    Thanks.

    The eBay rug looks pretty much like Amazon's. I think it's real.

    Hi
    If you get really stuck I have a specialised sheepskin shop nearby me in Australia. I will buy you one if you want and post. Kemen053 gave you good info too. You need to state the fleece length you want eg 1" or whatever. Also it needs to be soft tanned. PM me if you need help. Barry

    Find one of the reenactor shows in your area. They will have sheep skins, buffalo robes, about anything you might want.

    It is 11 p.m. Sat night and just checking the info you nice folks have sent.

    I'll try to get back with more info tomorrow afternoon. (Got to take the wife to the airport for a visit to her mothers in Wisconsin) In the early a.m.

    Thank you all for the answers to my quest.

    I will see just what I can now extract from all these great places, info wise.

    I know this sounds weird but try Ikea home furnishings dept they have a large selection of sheep skins (for rugs I guess). Only have white that I have seen.

    Ebay above has one under 20. But it goes off soon.

    Problem has been solved.

    Thank you all for your input. A gentleman has contacted me via xmail and has a pelt that will work for me.

    Again, thanks to everyone.
