    I'm so in shock over this. I guess when you move away you expect things to always be the same in the place you left. I knew that I could post a message here or email Evalee and she would know the...

    Unfortunately (fortunately), animals that show up here end up staying here. I'd keep the dog. Kind of wishing that a cool dog would show up here soon. We have 2 cats that were obviously drop-offs....

    I feel like I've lost a neighbor when I read of County's passing. His practical advice on horsekeeping in the frozen northland was so helpful for me when I moved to MN. Godspeed Glen, you will be...

    We got lucky and found a fabulous realtor. Since we were moving from MD to MN, we had to rely on a relator. We did some Internet browsing, but she was so good. She also has horses and knew what...

    We live about 22 miles from town. That's about 25 min on a good day. Bad days (in the winter) it's about 40 min. The worst was in a blizzard; that one took over an hour and a half.

    I'm assuming that you are not riding with the speakers and Ipod, right? If that's the case, any computer speakers with a standard jack should work. Just unplug where the headphones go, plug in the...

    Are you somewhere that it snows? If so, get a sled for taking hay out to pastures. Ours is from Fleet Farm and it's for dragging deer out of the woods. We stacked 5 bales of hay on it Saturday. ...

    Even though it's still freaking cold here (15* now), it's staying light until almost 6pm. And that's 15* ABOVE zero. Definite progress. Folks, I think we might make it.

    What tool are you using? The right tool can make a huge difference. I use very small shavings/sawdust with a little shredded paper. My sifting fork with sides is the best thing for this set-up. I...

    Thanks for the ideas. He isn't having problems urinating, oddly enough. The sheath, although swollen, isn't hot to the touch. It looks about the same as yesterday and this morning. I realize that...

    Swollen Sheath

    Last night I noticed that Bailey's sheath was very swollen. Really, it looked like he needed to be gelded again. I got the supplies and set about cleaning it out, but really didn't find too much...

    I'm not sure how you guys deal with multiple dogs. We have one extremely brainless yellow lab. I'm so afraid that if we got another, it would be chaos. Either double the brainlessness or they...

    Mine are in today but it's -25* here in MN with -50* windchills. That's just too cold, IMO. If they don't have shelter, even 20* (above) is pretty cold. When we were in MD, our barn didn't have...
