    We used 4x4s to frame the area on both sides of the gate. It created a bit of a raised 'sandbox'. It helps keep the stone dust in place. I wanted to dig out the soil first, hubby didn't. He won...

    Not removing the topsoil worked for me. It's been about 3 years. The area has taken a very small amount of material (a few shovelfuls) to re-level. It's in the middle of a runoff and the...

    Hand carts are much cheaper and wouldn't involve lifting the muck bucket. Roll up to the bucket, shove the lip under, bungee in place, and off you go. I'm all for ways to protect the back, I...

    That cart seems to have numerous ways to fail. If the muck bucket works now, get a hand cart to make it easier to move around.

    We boxed in the area on both sides of the gate and dumped stone dust down. We didn't scrape off the topsoil or add anything other than the stone dust. Surprisingly, it's stayed in place and...

    Pessoa Pony, all the way. Buy one used, you'll likely sell it for what you paid. I actually sold ours for more than I paid for it new.

    DIY for the 3 stalls we built. No where near the price you quoted, even adding in the cost of hardware, fasteners and stall doors. Check out Pinterest for ideas of something you'd feel comfortable...

    Lots of good advice and most based on experience, as is mine. So, boards on inside or boards on outside, both a viable option. Either way I'd run a few strands of electric to protect the fence. ...

    I'm with arapaloosa_lady. I use pellets for their absorption qualities. If I'm adding a lot of pellets I may mist very lightly with the hose. They break down quickly enough by being walked on and...

    I've used Sally's Hair One for a number of years. Hair is in great shape even with regular color/highlights and holds the color well.

    I put a 2x4 high up across the opening of my barn doors (12’ span). I use one of the cheap 5 arm tack hangers designed to slip over a 2x4 and hang blankets up on it. I can tuck them to one side so...

    I agree with the 14" size. I bought 18" Air Kings and find my guys sometimes stand outside of the airflow as if it's too much blowing on them. I have them on low and they still push a lot of air. ...

    Maximum makeup to the barn is acceptable, and anything in-between. It's all dependant on what's comfortable for you. If anyone cared to question my choice I'd question why they cared. Lol!

    I can definately recommend boots over shoes for some horses. I have a mare who's hoof made a complete turn-around when we switched from shoes to Cavallo Simple Boots. They're quite easy on/off. I...
