    Unless you have a lot of other vets to choose from....don't complain. Most vets I have come across do not handle that well. My guess is that if you complained over something like that, they likely...

    what is good quality for dairy cows, is not necessarily good quality for horses.

    Hay in small squares is a scarce commodity these days, so you pay a premium. It's labour intensive, and on...

    I breed and sell a fair number of horses. I do not allow trials at all. You can possibly try the horse off property under our supervision, and try it several times at our place, but the horse...

    It's been 2-3 weeks since it's been seeded, and Orchardgrass takes 3 weeks to germinate! Weeds are getting a head start.

    Good pasture takes a couple years to get established. Grazing on the...

    My old stock trailer (SnH) has a very low step up. I'd say 12 inches or less...but I'd have to measure to be sure. Horse load great on it, and I always turn the horses around and make them walk...

    You need to work on your relationship:) or get rid of the horse as Ironwood said and get another. The horse has to see you as a friend that he wants to spend time with or he'll always be hard to...

    Hot tape works very well for temporary fencing and it's very safe. DO NOT use the rope in a temporary set up. That stuff is dangerous. The tape will break if a horse gets into it....which is a very...

    If I can give you advice is have a professional set your posts. It's not that easy to set a nice straight line of posts. If you go with high tensile plastic coated wire with electric you'll have a...

    O.K..that makes sense that it is still illegal. As a seller however I would have less trouble with it. As a buyer in that case I'd have a big issue.

    Very much illegal.
    Very much unethical.
    You are aware of it and therefore involved.

    Unfortunately this type of thing is very common, as are massive undeclared commissions.

    I have NO problem...

    Not surprised by that. I saw the stallion at the home farm years ago, and had to do a double take. He was definitely a medium sized leggy, smaller bodied elegant stallion. He probably throws back...

    The 2 inch whole nets are a nice option for what you need. They reduce waste and slow down consumption rate a bit, but as long as there are enough nets out there, it will not limit their hay...

    In your case I would recommend the coated wire. I live in your area, and have both coated wire, and some 3 bands of 1 1/2 inch tape. For me the tape fence is a temporary option. I've had horses go...

    3000 volts off the unit on it's own in my opinion is not enough. It would indicate to me there is a problem. I like to have 5000-7000 V on the fenceline so you need at least that from the unit.

    My interpretation of this is that we MUST breed the best, not what is left over and can't sell. As breeders we have to be committed to our breeding goals and hold on to these really good fillies....
