When will I receive my livewire?

You will receive an email within 48 hours of ordering letting you know when we expect to ship your Livewire(s). Sometimes we can ship within in a few days but more often it will take about two weeks for you to receive your package. During the holidays we are especially busy and appreciate orders as early as possible so that we can insure that they arrive well before gift-giving time. Sale Barn and Etsy shop Livewires generally ship within 1-2 days as they are ready to go to great new homes!

How will my Livewire ship?

Livewires are quite light and unless you order a sculpture or have requested overnight shipping, your Livewires will arrive via good old-fashioned US post! We will email you notification when your Livewire(s) ship and then get ready to check the mailbox or doorstep. Fedex is used for heavier sculptures and expedited shipping. Livewires ship from Colorado unless the wire trainer is on the road.

Can I order a livewire necklace?

Sure, as long as you promise not to hug anyone too closely while wearing your Livewire. Please contact Makendra to order a custom necklace. 

Can I order a Livewire that is not a horse?

You can! Makendra will consider requests for other animals on a case by case basis. Past non-horse Livewires include donkeys and mules, llamas, dogs, and even an eagle. Horses really do turn out best though, so Makendra prefers to make equine livewires only.

Can my local tackshop sell Livewires?

Just ask the staff to contact Makendra if they are interested in selling Livewires. You can also contact Livewires to recommend a shop or gallery.
