    I don't see how anything light enough to hang up by hand can be very useful. Maybe you should look into building a fenced alcove to store the current one in?

    I hang the chain harrow on a fence...

    How much is the whole thing going to weigh loaded?

    If it is significantly less than 13000 lbs (with about 3000 on the pin and 5000 on each axle) the main thing you'll get from heavier axles is a...

    Only problem is nobody under 20 knows what the word "taped" means. ;)

    Is she tied to the post, damsel in distress style, or does Hermes think it has been long enough and wants to bring Punky Brewster's bandana at the knee look back?

    I don't think there is such a thing. A vehicle can fall off any jack, especially on an unreliable surface like you might find on a shoulder, and especially if there are horses or people jiggling it...

    I wonder who is making $4.95 off it the other days. It's been in the public domain for decades.

    If there are not many interconnection points you could get specific connectors to join them. Or you could run a second energizer. The one you have now may well have been sized for the current...

    I'm not sure I'd have chosen the blue roof but I'm sure I could get used to it.

    The inside would need a coat of paint (or 3). My current bedroom was the electric blue color of the inside of that...

    How many pounds of hay do you put out a day now? ...

    How many pounds of hay do you put out a day now? Normally I'd say expect more waste with round bales, but small bales run through a spreader sounds pretty wasteful already.

    For 20 horses I'd...

    Clearly you need a faster golf cart, with a dash cam so we can all experience the excitement of neighborhood drama culminating in a high speed golf cart chase.

    Either that or keep a horse...

    You are saying that a salesman paid on commission would tell lies to somebody he thinks looks like a sucker to move a more expensive item? What is the world coming to?

    I'd get rid of it.

    Wasps in the cupola will probably not bother you this year, but next year their some of their descendants will move out of home and pick nest locations. Pretty soon you'll be...

    I missread a version of that sign when I first saw it as "Farmers make funny noises, smell bad and have sex outdoors".

    It took me a few seconds to realise it really said "farm animals" not...

    Material pricing varies by region but split rail fencing will usually be more expensive than regular board fencing. I think it's also less sturdy, but maybe that's not true when new and less...

    If you are changing size you should seriously consider a new spare. You are getting tires that are more than an inch taller than the old ones. If you only do local trips it won't matter much but...

    I love the foxhunting obituaries that tell of a 98 year old who died after falling from their favorite horse out hunting after leading an interesting life.

    We should all be so lucky.

    Make a square forecourt area in front of the barn so you have a T shaped path. Once you get used to it, it's not at all inconvenient to have to drive forwards down your driveway, back a trailer into...

    I said that?

    I don't think anybody thinks horses can carry infinite weight. Of course more weight is more work for them. Horses will obviously go further, faster or whatever with less load.

    The majority of cavalry horses across all times and regions were drafts and draft crosses? I think you've pulled that factoid from the same orifice you pulled the "studies" that say a horse can only...

    Somebody always claims that. Who is "they" where are these "studies"?

    I'm calling bullshit on it.

    Put it this way, once upon a time a lot of horses earned their living as cavalry mounts. ...

    Given the choice I'd have some sort of large sheets of white plastic with few joins. I don't know that you need the 1/2" thick stuff but it depends on whether you are relining exisitng kickproof...

    Ignoring the why would you care argument, I'm curious if you are just trying to pay extra for "certified gmo free hay" that is exactly the same as all the other hay.

    There is GMO alfalfa, but...

    Last update I saw was the one you commented on from June 11.

    Lots of big barns have staff that drive a barn owned trailer to shows and maybe do other groom-like activities once there. There's no reason you couldn't have a backyard barn and hire somebody just...
