    I use jugs all the time but don't bother cutting holes. Just leave the cap off and use that to fill with pellets or treats and throw it in to them that way. Or hang from a rope. I also have used...

    In this area, winter usually means limited turnout and more stall time, so I voted no to concrete. Plus, I have yet to be at a boarding barn where they used more than enough bedding to barley cover...

    I also have the MH Active Winter Rider tall boots and find that I wear them not just riding but around the barn as they are comfortable and warm. But they might present the same problem to the OP...

    On the website, Equus Now says they will also take phone orders on Friday, so you might see if that is one of the discounted items. The sale flyer says they will have exclusions, but doesn't specify...

    I wouldn't be thinking it was to avoid IRS so much as to avoid worker's comp. Or both!

    I have two of the Premier Equestrian ones and they are light. I lucked out and got mine used on craigslist (with a bunch of other stuff) -- paid about what one new wall costs for a whole set of...

    Yes, smallest box possible so it has less room to move around, plus you avoid the extra charges for big boxes (dimensional weight, as they call it, can increase the shipping cost a crazy amount). I...

    Last year Equus Now did 20% off, so I'm watching to see if they repeat this year. Cheshire Horse was 15% off on Cyber Monday, so watching them too as I order a supplement from them and like to stock...

    Long as it is disclosed upfront, I don't see the problem. I've looked at barns with similar setups, and it sure didn't bother me. Usually they were barns with limited spots, so they wanted to bring...

    Not crazy about it either. With the full width displayed, it is too small to comfortably read. Then if I enlarge it to read, I have to scroll left to right to see everything, and that's annoying.

    I've seen a trainer in a clinic tell someone they should buy a tennis racket. They were not kidding. Tactless, but it was also true!

    Interesting. We have an umbrella policy through State Farm and they are well aware of my having and transporting horses (including insuring the trailer). But I don't show, so that's one difference,...

    I have often ordered up one size in wug. Depends on the horse. If large shoulders, broad chest - definitely order up. For me, it isn't that the reg vs. wug are different lengths, but how they fit at...

    For the rail products like I have, Centaur recommends 9-11" between rails, so I'm betting the recommendation is similar for the single strand stuff (White Lightning) -- I did a quick look at the...

    Just looked up some of my past test results, and I've had iron come in as low as 303 ppm and high as 657 ppm for teff (6 different batches, all from Central or Eastern OR/WA). I also had one that...

    I am not an expert by any means, but I can't imagine the species of grass will affect the iron levels as much as other factors (fertilizer or water applied). So again, tests of the specific hay are...

    Honestly, you'd be better off just pulling samples and testing yourself. I've tested teff hay several times as I test all my hay, and I could share results with you, but it really won't tell you...

    If the worker has been there that long, you aren't going to change a habit like that. And I can't imagine the BO isn't aware it happens, unless every person who has ever boarded there is an idiot...

    We don't get snow often enough to do pads, so I've used cooking spray with mixed results in the past. Ski wax...I'm going to try that. Maybe if I buy some and put it in the tack room, that will...

    I'd only go with a neck cradle if it was something that has to stay on, like a wrap over an injured leg or similar. What kind of bib is it? I've had better luck with the hard plastic one than the...

    I actually feel the Amigos fit similar to the Rambo, just a little less roomy in the drop (side to side). The only Amigos I have are the 600d sheet for warm/showery days and fly sheets. Otherwise my...
