    Yes- I think it very much depends on what area I settle in. It will have to be close to urban areas- preferably in between two larger cities. I will of course be doing more research, especially...

    Yep, I am looking at resources from the SBA. Thanks everyone for so much input! I am currently taking some online business classes, next year I plan on doing property searching. I also am doing...

    Thanks for the responses! County agent was a "Duh, should have thought of that" as I was in 4-H! I will look into what they provide.
    I think there's definitely an interest in people moving out...

    Awesome! I am doing some informal "market research" for a business I hope to start up in the next five years. I am envisioning a place for hosting such a clinic, as well as barefoot trimming clinics...
  6. Saddle fitting- how do you get your saddle fitted? Trailer in? Clinics?

    Does a saddle fitter come to your barn and see multiple clients? Trailer-ins? Do you have "clinics" with demonstrations and saddle sale/swap? Would you be interested in such a thing?
  7. Education for those with small farms, gardens, and livestock...

    If you have vegetable gardens and livestock at home, where did you learn how to care for them? Family? Classes? Books?
    In the next few years I hope to open a health retreat center that focuses on...

    I am also an alum. I am devastated by the news, and ANGRY as well. There is the beginnings of an organized effort to save the school. There are so many distinguished, accomplished, well-heeled...

    Thanks for the input!
    Another question- if listing your truck as the primary vehicle, and not a tiny car or SUV, is there a noticeable difference in car insurance? Obviously that depends on who's...

    Dumb question: Is transmission fluid more important in towing vehicle? I was told it didn't really need to be done in my SUV- and that "most" places will only take out the fluid in the reservoir and...

    Thanks for the responses!
    The Toyota Tundra is definitely appealing to me. It sounds like it has better gas mileage and is perfectly capable of hauling an older heavier two horse. The new Dodge...
  12. Yet another hauling thread-- who uses a truck as their primary driving vehicle?

    I am at the beginning of my research, I've searched on here and read some threads but would love to hear from those who have only one vehicle- a truck- and their experience with it. What are you...

    I work in corporate retail management at the store level, so this caught my eye. It seems SP'S advertising department is not communicating with their POS department. They can stack the discounts any...

    And this is why I hardly ever get on here anymore. The vindictive and angry posters surely have nothing better to do than sit in judgement.
    I asked an honest question because I actually DON'T want...

    Both horses have already drank out of it, I set it up this morning and I'm going to plug it in tonight before it gets down to 10 degrees. Sent an email to landlord about what hr wants to.charge, and...

    I have it set up against a post...cord wrapped around the post behind it and out. So cord is not actually in the field at all.

    WOW by no means did I intend for this to turn into a discussion about the price of boarding. My original post was stating the facts. What I was absolutely unclear about was who's responsibility it...

    Ok, thanks for the ideas. I will make sure the extension cord is suitable, and some insulation under the muckk tub might not be a bad idea. Its one with the heating element completely enclosed.
    I...
  20. Thank you for the responses. I am not...

    Thank you for the responses. I am not complaining about board.. around here, that is cheap, but again, that does not include daily feeding, blanketing, fly masks, etc. I do all that myself, and I...
  21. heated muck tubs and what is reasonable to expect from stable owner

    I pasture board on the same property as my apartment. The barn owner provides a concrete water trough out in the middle of the field, and a heated auto waterer in the run in sheds. From previous...
