Fire Destroys Manufacturing Facility for Classic Ropes, Rattler Ropes and Strings, Classic Equine Saddle Pads

stacey |

Sad news out of Granbury this morning. The manufacturing facility for Classic Ropes, Rattler Ropes, Rattler Racer strings, and Classic Equine Saddle Pads has burned down and is considered a total loss. This facility is located on the Weatherford Highway (Highway 51) out of Granbury in the 1300 block. Units from several local fire stations battled the blaze together. Hood County News reports that patrolling officers spotted the flames before the first of Equibrand's two 8 hour shifts reported for work this morning. **Update 11/30/15 12:30pm** Due to the number of calls we are receiving, I wanted to take a moment and let you all know that we are NOT raising the prices on our Classic and Rattler ropes. Yes, most of the ropes will be gone by the end of the day. Most of them are already gone now before lunch, but we are not going to try to make a few extra bucks off a tragic event. Once we sell through our current (rapidly dwindling) supply of ropes and strings there will not be any more for several months. Classic Equine Saddle pads will also be affected. While we do expect one more shipment of pads, many of them will be sold out very soon.
