    Not sure where you are in SE PA, but I second the Tack Shops, Feed Stores, etc. idea. You're more likely to find a horse person that way too. If you're within about 10-15 miles of New Bolton Center,...

    I love the pelleted bedding. At the first barn, we dumped a bag into wheelbarrow and sprayed with a hose. Arctic winter put the kabosh on hose, so went with Guardian brand directions. Lay bag flat...

    I supplement with it. My Tractor Supply has Standlee Alfalfa, Alfalfa/ Orchard Grass and Timothy. I feed the Alfalfa in the winter by putting some in a bucket, adding hot water and making a hay...

    Amiego (Medallist at PanAm Games in Eventing) was Abdullah's (Team Gold, Individual Silver at LA Olympics). And their mother, Abiza, was considered a living treasure. I don't know them personally,...
  5. Thank you!

    Very much appreciate the advice! Usually it's more a spring issue, but this year it snows, gets warm and snows again. I'll try earplugs and see if they help. If it were my indoor, I'd have used...
  6. How to deal with snow sliding off indoor

    We're lucky to have an indoor this winter, but how best to desensitize my should know better horse to the sporadic blasts from the roof? The last blast left a warmblood leaping into me for safety....
  7. I have a more traditional pair

    I love my Composti stirrups! Mine are the traditional fillis style with black pads. I was pleasantly surprised that they have plenty of grip. Currently I'm using them with Thinline overwrap to keep...

    Check the fence carefully before it's yours! Vinyl fencing was my ideal until laying over at a farm with it. There are different grades of vinyl and some of the earlier ones weren't UV stabilized (so...

    Not sure where the OP is, but if you're near to Cochranville, PA. Justaplain farm has nursemares and raises bucket babies and has oodles of experience with orphans. So sorry for your loss and hope...

    Thank you for your insight!! The friends' barn has plentiful dog/cat food and usually has a plate of cookies/tray of brownies in the aisle. Friendly group, they always offer to share when I pick up a...
  11. Are rats part of the normal fauna at the barn?

    Some of my friends and I were having this discussion after one of them was lamenting a rat population that's chewing through tupperware and not content to lurk in the shadows.

    I have never, ever...

    I've had great success using the gel-based crazy glue to put the cracks back together. I use only natural, moisturizing soaps (no SLS or other sulfates as they pull whatever moisture is in my hands)...

    Too bad there's not power. Here's a good use for a few well-placed Orwellian surveillance cameras, pictures posted to Sandy Looters.com and $5K cash to people who identified the culprits. That might...

    Good question!! And, I'm perplexed too!

    LinkedIn just had a similar question and it seemed one page resumes were recommended right out of school. Also some people report HR folks scanning just...

    I haven't seen as much of the coverage as I wanted (clueless cable company who insisted they didn't have NBC sports channel). However, this is the team I would picked, if it had been mine to choose....

    Our mares should talk! Mine has the Rambo Bugsoff sheet w/ belly and neck wrap when she's turned out. But the belly wrap doesn't go back as far as her teats. I've been hosing her teats to get any...

    I spent a summer on a mini breeding farm and quite a number had malformed nasal turbinates and skulls. Needless to say these individuals had breathing problems. Hopefully your mini has something...

    Wow, I'm impressed!! Amazing what a decade of riding a horse can achieve. And Reed is spectacular!! Hope everyone jogs up sound and has jumps left for London. I like Kent and Uceko too.

    Anyone know if Robert Whitaker's horse Catwalk is the same horse who did that amazing jumping at WEF a few years ago when the bridle broke? That mare was ridden by a Canadian then.

    Agreed. That is a big, very tough course. The clears made it look easy, but lots of very experienced riders are felling trees.

    When jackets are waived, I see the most of the riders in short sleeved pastel shirts with stock ties; though the rule talks about waiving neckwear (a boon on a hot day). Agreed about wearing the coat...

    Didn't get to see all of the class online - tucking my barn in for the night. What a great, smooth jumpoff ride for McClain and Antares F!! We might have a grey team this year! Also glad to see video...

    Thank you for all of your help and advice!! Glad to know we won't stick out like sore thumbs. My first hunter show was in a plaid jacket on an appy pony (when either of those were surprising)....
