    Why then would commercial dumpster deodorizers not work if they are similarly antibacterial / anti-microbial?

    I get that Stall Fresh wouldn't do that (it more neutralizes ammonia), but why not...

    It's emptied weekly (every week, same day, year round). No, it can't be painted because we don't own it. The company we use for service owns it, and all of their dumpsters are painted uniform...
  3. Dumpster deodorizers? Would Stable Fresh work?

    We are on a smaller acreage (jut over one acre per horse) and we use a dumpster for all of our manure and stall pickings. I am curious if the dumpster deodorizers that I have seen advertised would...

    I decided to stick with the Pyranha Spray Master system, since we loved it so much after installing it at our last farm. In doing my research, I really haven't come across anything significantly...

    An adult horse only sleeps for about three hours every 24 hours, and they don't necessarily sleep for 3 hours straight. They rest and sleep in short spurts throughout the day.

    My horses will...

    Fly spray systems

    We recently moved and are renovating our new barn. At our last barn, we installed a Pyranha misting system, and I loved it. We're getting ready to install a fly misting system in our new barn, and...

    Not really. The posts are trilled with holes, not slats that would keep the tape flat. I've seen tape stuffed into them, but it does not look nice. I don't think it could be tensioned either.

    Mule corner post question

    How do you attach the fencing (in our case Electrobraid) to the Mule corner post? I have seen ads say you do not need insulators. Are there holes drilled in it?

    Additionally, does anyone know if...

    Thanks for all the responses, evereyone! I do know I can convert them all to tail straps, but IME, some brands just aren't cut to stay in place that way, no matter how well they fit the horse.

    Blankets without leg straps

    Other than Amigo and Rambo, are there any other brands of horse blankets that come with tail straps instead of leg straps?

    I was going to suggest insulated buckets, too. They are way more durable and more effective at much lower temps than the cozies. Mine are only 6 or so years old and have already survived one move. ...

    I would cap them. I definitely would assume they could have the same danger as a regular t-post, though I wonder if the flexibility maybe lowers the chance of injury slightly. I still wouldn't...

    I don't think that would be all that difficult, though I certainly haven't used these. If the ground isn't relatively level, the fence really shouldn't be level either, though. When we installed our...

    The relationship between tax assessed value and fair market value varies by location - not just state, but often by region or town. Sometimes there is a relationship, and sometimes there is...

    I'm also wondering how you would remove them. We use a t-post jack to remove them here, and I don't see how that would work with these.

    The very end of this video claims you can just pull them...

    Thank you so much! This is really helpful. I'm wondering if we might just do Electrobraid in the front. We did it on our current farm (5' tall fence, 4 strands, white vinyl t-post covers with wood...
  18. UPDATED! Anyone used the "Timeless T-Posts" for horse fencing? UPDATE - Bought them!

    UPDATE: I decided to take a chance and just order the timeless t-posts. What a great decision - I absolutely love them! My experience ordering and having them delivered was quite pleasant. We...

    I would consider board fencing, but I prefer Centaur over that because IME it is a lot less maintenance. That's why I ruled it out... more maintenance than cost, especially if you want a white or...
