    I might take a weanling if it were free or if it moved like a freak of nature in a good way, but since it would be ~10K (conservative estimate-I have my own farm in a low cost area) just to get the...

    Right now we have 2 vehicles. The F350 diesel dually (~18 mpg) is DH's daily driver. But, he only drives 11 miles each way to work. I drove it a few days last week while my car was in the shop. It...

    I voted rarely, but only because I don't trail ride. Usually when I'm riding, it's a show horse, and I like to have a set of eyes on the ground to tell me what to tweak. If I'm riding a young/green...

    That's a lot of feed to put in a car. I've been known to do some stupid crap with vehicles full well knowing it was stupid- the 10' long load of green oak in the back of my Isuzu P'up that left me...

    How old is your spreader? Mine is probably a '70's model and the chain looks like the stuff Tom King posted. We've got a bunch of it- DH bought a forage wagon at auction for the running gear and used...

    Where are you? I'm on the Grayson/Hardin Co line. Got about 11 inches. DH plowed the driveway with the tractor yesterday. I hope they plow my road (wishful thinking!) before I have to go to work...

    Ice sucks. Dealt with it a few years back- 10 days without power, some people were without power for nearly a month.

    When I realized it was going to be really, really bad, I went for kerosene...

    I wonder how much electricity has been conserved by the invention of the microwave oven.

    And I also wonder what the heck people are thinking when they nuke a single slice of pizza for a minute or...

    So the BMI is flawed. Big deal. I'm glad schools are sending home letters to parents because a good percentage of kids ARE fat. People are getting so used to fat it's the new normal. I could easily...

    I'm not 5, nor Amish, but I apparently I don't get out much. I have never before seen Whistlejacket. <cue Geico caveman under a rock line!>

    At a boarding or training barn, I'd expect feeding twice a day, and within an hour either side of usual. So if they're normally fed at 7 am, then I'd expect somewhere between 6-8...mainly so...

    I've used both. Straw mainly for mares about to foal and until the babies are a week or two old. I find it to be a major PITA. It is pretty, though. Here it's much more expensive than sawdust or...

    When I went looking for property, I figured out what I wanted to pay and went backwards from there. The bank probably would have lent me much more, but I picked a figure I knew I wouldn't have any...

    I don't know how you've put up with it for 18 months!

    We had friends of ours move down here and stay with us- they came on a bus with just a couple of suitcases. While they didn't help with...

    At the Aldi's I shop at, I see more apparently well-to-do shoppers than po' folk.

    Produce is almost always cheaper at Aldi's, as are milk and eggs. It's my go-to place for junk food like chips...

    I think they should go with attempted murder, and I'm sure they can come up with several more charges. Dude needs his driver's license taken away for life, and he needs to be locked up for a good...

    As a rule, no.

    However- Silk Drops hair serum works just as well as Cowboy Magic detangler for a whole lot less- the ingredient list is nearly identical. I dilute store bought Vetrolin and the...

    Those look interesting, and not much more than regular t-posts.

    Elitist much?

    I first went to a SUNY Ag & Tech, then Cornell (an Ivy in case you didn't know), and nearly everything transferred. I hated Cornell and dropped out. Anyway, when I went back to...

    I like the Dollar Tree for "The Works" toilet and shower cleaners and a few other cleaning supplies. They also have bags of peppermints and fairly often they have horehound candy in the little paper...

    Ehh, you don't need no stinkin' lessons. I didn't have a clue, but learned quickly- by my lonesome- when I traded vehicles for the weekend with my housemate. BTW, Ithaca, NY (read:long steep-ass...
