    None for me over all kinds of trails with a variety of horses. They can get hot, slip, and get stuff caught under them causing rubs.

    Dollar store mug with a couple of lottery tickets. Just a point to avoid scented stuff unless you know the person - Scented candles, soaps etc. give me a pounding headache.

    Actually for Pre-Calc and Calc a calculator is not really needed if the students have some understanding of how a graph is related to a particular equation. They use so many exact numbers and...

    I teach remedial classes at a community college. The students do NEED to understand the basic facts and be able to do them without a calculator. I have students that have problems understanding...

    For riding I don't have show tack, but I for driving shows I do have working harness and show harness. It that case it makes a HUGE difference in the tack cleaning time.

    I have one that would be like that in the house. Instead he is a barn cat/over grown kitten. Much easier on everybody :lol:

    Agreed. Also an instructor (math) teaching at 2 colleges. I have already adjusted final exam time for a couple of students due to scheduling conflicts - they had 3 finals scheduled in 1 day, 2...

    I'm not entirely sure how it would work, but maybe you could arrange with a breeding farm to lease a mare for a custom foal and pay them to take care of everything.

    Trust me, we don't plan on pulling the pump - that is not a job I want to tackle.

    Would it be a problem if the check valve is buried? That is what will happen if we install one between the...

    It was mentioned earlier, but you can make a useable hockey rink with 2x4s and plastic sheeting. Just keep flooding it until you build up the ice. For maintenance, sweep and add more water.

    Also,...

    Everything is still open, so it will be easy to add one between the pump and the T to the hydrant if needed.

    Due to the layout of the well, hydrant, and pressure tank this would be an even bigger pain. The well is by the barn and the hydrant is at the far end of the barn from there. The pressure tank is...

    This seems to be the problem. Next step is to deal with the check valve, which due to its location will be a pain in the you know where.

    I had rat issues at one barn until a weasel moved in and cleaned them out. No chickens to protect so I was happy to have it.

    Also, check local zoning. Here in western NY most towns require 10 acres to keep that many horses. Another thing is location for getting off the property if you want to trail ride - make sure you...

    We haven't had time to deal with it yet, but hopefully we will Friday or Saturday. After talking with somebody locally, I think a check valve by the pressure tank might be the problem. I will update...

    If the barn cats had their way I would have at least 2 more indoor cats, but the indoor cats would be PISSED, and with one indoor cat almost 20 that won't work so the barn cats stay outside.

    Is there any chance there is another neighbor with lights on and the note writer has the wrong house. Given the edits it's unlikely, but that might explain the issue.

    Looks nice, but I would hang the bridles on the side walls of the sections and put 2 saddle racks on each side.

    The plumbing is what it is. Due to the locations of the well/barn/ and house, plumbing to the house would have been much more complicated - the well is right next to the barn (though the hydrant is...

    We haven't checked this yet.

    The line is partially buried, but the ends are still open, just mostly under water. I will probably have the trench reopened along with the temporary diversion ditch...

    I fully understand. currently trying to install a frost free hydrant that is getting much more complicated and expensive than should be (dealt with in another thread), I still need to get my heating...

    Tom, thank you. I thought the set up was fine, but nice to have it confirmed. Is there any chance the drop from a 1" line to a 3/4" line could be the problem?
  24. It is not a leak - that would affect the pressure...

    It is not a leak - that would affect the pressure in the entire system. Something in the line is possible, though unlikely. It was a brand new line. The line from the well is 1 inch, the line to the...
  25. frost free hydrant installation question/ problem

    Trying to install a frost free hydrant. Dug the trench, laid the water line, T-ed into the existing line to the house just outside the well. Pump is in the well, pressure tank is under the house, Tee...
