    Buyers are stupid. Shoppers are even more so. Shoppers treat you like the shrewd business owner making big money and it's your privilege to even have their attention. The majority of people...

    Everyone has different things to "do" that requires equipment. Every facility has different equipment already provided. Offhand, we bought:
    - one large wheelbarrow for mucking $300
    - four 100'...

    Biting flies are untouched by fly predators because the biters breed in a different environment.

    We get a few green heads and the odd black "cruise missile" horsefly. We tried a horse pal trap...

    We're running the County Line from TSC.

    TBH, Grainger has what you need but their prices have padding, as it were.

    Any "Ag duty" fan with a sealed motor is a good choice. You might look at...

    Modern home construction is fully advancing toward more structure for less money.

    Things like serviceability and ease of future expansion do not fit into the modern home construction budget.

    The reason sk_pacer's method worked is because ice cream needs to be colder than plain ice. The paper insulates and lets the ice cream stay as cold as possible.

    Anything done to keep ice cream...

    Congratulations! It's a nice place for sure.

    Having land with horses at home comes at a price that doesn't just hit the wallet, so if you have a good boarding situation, a nice home and a nice...

    If you and your friend are hiking, you don't have to be faster than a bear to be safe. You just have to be faster than your friend.

    It's true with homes. Especially if you take a moment to...

    On the up side, as I pay higher insurance because there are still people who take no precautions whatsoever, I take solace knowing that the burglary of their stuff helps avoid robberies and the theft...

    Yes, always.

    I have little sympathy for people who are burglarized and don't lock anything.

    There's someone in my area selling these for $75 each. Used once and clean. I would not pay $500 for one just to water horses.

    My intention is to use it along with the tractor with pallet fork...

    The external antenna on the Trailereyes is much less of an issue than I thought it would be. The battery power for the camera is pitiful so IMHO it must be hardwired to the trailer power. The real...

    Personally, I'm always most concerned about the spare tire. That one is almost always neglected. But I digress.

    The five year rule is popular because it's simple, it's a round number and the...

    First, I think an x-ray is not a big investment and minimal health risk. So compared to "should I get an MRI" or "should I get a CT scan" the overkill factor is not an issue. So I'd have gotten it...

    1) A golf course can change water consumption, but cannot stop it. Unfortunately, a certain amount of water and fertilization is a necessary evil. To stop watering at a golf course is essentially...

    And...

    Not really. This is our entrance lane, and I'm pretty sure I can't / won't stand for a dumpster next to my mailbox.

    Asphalt driveway damage / repair

    I've been at my farm for two years now. One of the features I was most pleased with when we bought it was the 1000 ft asphalt driveway.

    Since then I've noticed significant alligator cracking down...

    I think one other general comment is to feel free to contribute something thoughtful, but remain completely open-minded. What is helpful to that person is really hard to anticipate - unless of...

    As well you should. There are people who have achieved more in running a 5 miler than I did racing in college.

    It's a little tricky but really I find people want to be down-to-earth, not pretend, and speak about their experience. The challenge is finding meaningful ways to relate - which most people simply...

    We're on a schedule similar to Kimchi. We don't get them out every day but we're on this pace.

    This is also the best growing season for the pastures - we're moving them weekly and the grass is...
