    On a chicken forum I am on, they recommend (for the squeamish) gassing chicks that need to be culled. I assume it would work for mice(?)

    My gelding does this. We spent a season at a barn that had vertical bars between stalls and they *loved* him. Park a wheelbarrow outside his stall and he'd poop into it. :lol:

    Decals are a good thing! Trailers with decals are much less likely to get stolen. All else being equal, thieves will always take a non-descript trailer over a distinctive one. I got custom logos for...
