    I guess I would make it unpleasant for the deer so barn is not a nice place. I sure don't want to deal with the problems they carry moving to the horses. Deer do cross the fields here but don't...

    Buddyroo, are you still by Grand Rapids? I have a friend by Marne that might know some places. Or that might be too far away to work.

    I have a cheap one, Mr Coffee, which is kind of elderly and still working fine. No sure how much volume of food you want to put up, but I have done a pretty fair volume over the years using it. ...

    You might want to add snow rim pads to your shoeing package if he will be out in the snow. They help eject snow build up in his hooves, to go with his ice studs in the shoes for grip. Plain studs,...

    I space them wide enough so horses can't reach across to touch another horse. Helps if space is wide enough to drive the mower thru, to save time trimming things.

    Even with electric, I would NOT...

    I corrected my post on the name, you are right DSS, not the other letters I used.

    Demystifying and putting down myths is needed so the kids have good working knowledge of the truth of how humans work. So much rumor and false information floating around between kids, that truth...

    Not sure what you are feeding, but maybe wetter beet pulp would not have so much roughage for firm poops. Also Alfalfa pellets wetted, should be nourishing, yet not so rough thru the system. Any...

    I have a small fishpond in the back yard that we did ourselves. It has two basins, so there is a tiny waterfall to enjoy. I didn't want to deal with the sheets of plastic, leaks, digging and...

    Non-native? I would call to have them removed. Native insects have enough competition from other Natives, so getting invasive species stopped helps the Natives.

    Just as a note from our experience, the heavy, treated bales did not get any lighter in weight with storage. They stayed the same, as heavy bales to move around. We are used to more wimpy bales,...

    Nope, would not be riding there! Amazing what folks have to deal with in their daily life and jobs.

    Not my choice for a hat, but it covers his head, shades his face, so it is a good hat for the...

    We had the 'Princess' with sensitive skin. She had to wear a fly mask when she had a foal, so foal was getting sunshine and exercise in the day hours.

    You might want to just add some extra ground salt to their feed daily. I do this with one Tablespoon for each horse in summer, with two Tablespoons in winter. I have larger horses, 16-17H, 1200 to...

    We have used the hay sprayed with proprionic acid and the horses loved it. There was nothing left when they finished eating, no wasted hay at all. The hay did smell like vinegar, so barn had a bit...

    I use pelleted lime in my mix of fertilizer. The powdered or ground stuff is only found in bags locally, so I only use that in the garden and yard.

    Boy that is the truth!!

    Urine and manure corrode things, and it is corroded faster if left sitting in the spreader more than a short time, like an hour or two! I am amazed your chain lasted 8...

    Round Up doesn't work on Horsetail weeds, they seem immune to it. One of the few weeds it doesn't work on, though more are gaining immunity.
