    I see a seller who is not purposely deceitful but has a different definition of "training" and "good with kids" than most.

    I see a buyer who did not exercise due diligence when purchasing to make...

    You'll likely get a ton of opinions, as everyone has their own proceedure for scratches.

    I have, in the past, clipped legs I'm actively treating for ease of cleaning.

    I do think Lady E's numbers are phenominal. And I think it's important to a discussion to bring in another side. I think most will find their middle ground.

    I started FECs last year, and plan to...

    Extremely short-term (36-hour) review :)

    I have been amazed at what getting rid of the vast amounts of bedding has done. I don't know if this is really what was happening, but I think I had...

    I like this "out-of the box" thinking, literally :D

    It's merely his "dining room" for 1 hour 2x per day and also his shelter in inclement weather. He's bottom of the pecking order, so while he wears a Wug to conserve calorie loss, I want it to be an...

    I'm open to that. I'm not sure how to change his routine, which is why on good days I was trying to get him to find an alternative spot (even using one of the other stalls!) by keeping his stall...

    Thanks Gloria!

    Oddly enough, the stall does not stink. This summer it did a little, but once I got him on a maintenance diet (see post 13) his manure went from solid cow-pie to normal horse poop...

    I have not, Tinah. I always used PDZ when I used straw bedding, decades ago, and assumed it was just for odor control. I didn't think about it helping with absorbtion! It's worth a try!

    Except I did. For the past 8 months. And the deeper the bedding, the deeper the muck. Which is why I'm trying to re-evaluate that type of thinking. It's not working.

    Thanks Appsolute.

    I'm fairly confident he will not ingest any of this sand. He does not get hay in his stall (he gets very little hay anyway, as he can't chew it) and the rest of his feed is out...

    He is under the care of a vet :)

    I'm not doing mats half-heartedly, and enough of the base has been degraded that I would need to get materials in to relevel the stall. That would take a tractor,...

    Wet stall

    I have an old guy who I lock in his stall twice a day, 1 hour per time, to eat his Sr. feed. Other than that, he has access to his stall (and other stalls) and a dry lot paddock with two other...
