    No but I should. Doing stalls doesn't bother me as long as the barn is open. I'm horribly allergic to horses and hay (along with basically everything else) but it's dust that will send me into an...

    Love the MDC Ultimates! They flex just enough to ease my knee pain (from shredded ACL and meniscus) but never feel unstable/loose. MDC does allow you to test their stirrups - contact them as they are...

    Agree with the above. I bought patio bricks (12"x12") from Lowes/Home Depot (or the like). I place 3-4 down per tire - more makes it easier to get the spacing correct. Then I drive right on them and...

    I love Weatherbeetas - I only buy those (and Rambos). I have a bunch of them - some still going strong after 10+ years. I've never had issues with durability but thankfully my OTTB mare is easy on...

    Can someone explain the whole cooking meatballs in jelly :confused:. A coworker does it every year for our potluck lunch thing we do at work right before Christmas.

    I just don't get it... :lol:.

    I've always done 100% rough board - I will never do full-board. I grew up with my own barn so my sisters and I learned at a very early age how to take care of our own. I will never do a co-op...

    I too soak all grain and never feed bran (ever!). My mare loves her hot soup in winter (& cold soup during summer). I add very little grain to her timothy cubes and pellets - it makes a great mash.

    Maybe one bag a week for my OTTB mare. I typically go about 6-7 days before I add another bag unless it's rainy/snowy out (tends to blow into the stall - not a fancy barn at all but it works). My...

    Why do you want them warm? To me it's not worth the risk (I'm not a fan of polos at all :no:).

    ^ This. Always on my Weatherbeetas. Thankfully just the one strap on my Rambos so it's a non-issue.

    My vets all use a catheter for euthanasia - one of them has been a vet close to 30 years and another one more than 20 years (the other 5-6 vets at the clinic all have less than 10 yrs experience)....

    My current horse isn't going anywhere without me - she was barely 4 when I bought her straight from the track - she's almost 16 now. My old TB I had to put down two years ago at age 31 :cry: -...

    For me? NEVER. If people don't like the way I look then that's their problem not mine. I've always taken care of my face and everyone thinks I'm ten years younger than I really am (I've heard this...

    How about using upside-down bell boots? That method worked for my old TB - he'd stock up too (mainly hind legs though). Ive heard of other people having success too with upside-down bell boots. I...

    No 40 degrees on a DRY day generally isn't considered cold for a horse. But it all depends on the horse - my old TB would shiver once it hit 50 degrees. In this cold heavy rain he would stand outside...

    This :yes:.

    One thing that bothers me about The Horse is the studies they print - the sample size is typically in the low double digits so I never take much stock in them :no:.

    Are they paid off? Personally I'd keep them. I hate the idea of relying on other people especially when it comes to towing. And what happens if you have an emergency and you need to get your horse to...
