    Even the good metal fencing has it limitations. At my barn, there are a few runs of that 40' x 100' size. The fence is welded steel pipe, one top rail only, with V-mesh. The fences are around 5'...

    We eat most meals in the breakfast room, but we do use the dining room quite a bit because we entertain a lot. When we have larger groups, we use both tables plus the tables outside.

    I've noticed a pattern of getting irritated with each other on vacations and I think it has to do with the whole being together 24/7 thing, which is not the normal situation. Now, I make sure to add...

    I vote concrete aisle, too.

    Also, consider putting in a French drain in the ditch along the base of the hill underneath the gravel you are going to install. it will make things flow better. ...

    Sooo nice! I am very happy for you!

    Thanks for posting the photos; it's always fun to have vicarious new house thrills.

    If you could put the manure into a bin with good aeration, like maybe with a screened bottom and catch pan underneath, it would dry out and be much lighter to dispose of each week. So maybe you...

    I would do this (in addition to what beowulf said):

    - Give her a carrot when you catch her.

    Beautiful -- and what a lot of space! Your barn siding is very pretty.

    Thanks for the update; it's nice to see progress, and beautiful barn photos are always fun. Your location is great, too. ...

    It might be a little spendy on that big of an area, but don't forget my favorite, which is Blume Farm's solution in her shade structure/run-in: the treated 2x4s with stone screening tamped over. I...

    I rented a Ford Focus for two weeks and I loved it. It used fuel efficiently, it was zippy and responsive to drive, and I felt like it was designed ergonomically for me. The seats were comfortable...

    I was eight or nine the first time I fell off. I was riding bareback, galloping in a field, and had that same slow-motion sensation that you did, as I started to slide sideways and realized I...

    That article was funny. I don't think that even an insurance company would pay $16 million for the Green Monkey today. Horses don't appreciate unless their performance merits it, and I doubt that...

    The 1901 BS was won by Commando in 2:21.00, faster than Secretariat's time, so I don't think that race was 13f. According to Wikipedia, the race was a mile and five furlongs (13f) from 1867 to 1873...
