    While I was away at an event, my boyfriend and his dad built a feeder. We still need to panel the sides, but otherwise it's almost ready.

    The side that opens hinges down so it doubles as a ramp...

    Thanks! I am leaving it for a day or two just to be safe. I'm not familiar with all the weeds, and there's no harm in waiting. The previous owners had twice as many horses as me on it with no...
  3. Affordable or DIY feeder for small round bales (4' x3')

    I'm looming at feeding 4' x 3' round bales this winter. Have found a net to suit but my horses are both shod, this I need something solid around the bale as well. Looking to be cost effective. ...

    Pasture mowing

    I've just mowed the first of my overgrazed under-maintained fields (just bought the place, not my doing!). Grass was minimal besides in the patches where they poop and pee so they won't eat it, and...

    I figured I should update. We're nine days in at the new place and as expected, they now get along. Spent one or two nights in separate paddocks and then I tried them together during the day. ...

    Not sure about passports required at training down there -- I believe so though as a barn mate had hers.

    Horse membership $25 (lifetime I believe)

    I have a circle j aluminum over steel 2h GN. FWIW, I don't mind the rubber stoppers, they do the job and you can pull the door shut easily once they're loaded and it'll give if someone smacks it...

    They already shared a 5 hour trailer ride, and will again on the way to new place. Ten days till we move and I can start the introduction!

    If you trust where they are, you could leave them behind, or leave two behind.

    Or, you can put one in each stall and each pasture, and rotate morning and night. Your stalls and pastures will be...

    There are cutlets that are more like cups, stick on, and snap together in the front with no back. Not sure what they're called, but had a very well endowed friend wear them quite often, I had no...

    My set up doesn't have a barn, just 4 or 5 small fields that run in an L... actually more of a U, around the back perimeter of the property. Each only shares on fence line with the next. The ring...

    They won't be sharing a fenceline while at the boarding facility -- not worth the tension and not fair to the BO to destroy her fences! I'd wondered if once they were at the new place and alone they...

    Ever? Should they never share a fenceline? My new property has 4 good sized paddocks/pastures set up currently, kind of in an L shape around the edge of the property.

    They were separated so they didn't share a fenceline after that was witnessed. I'm debating how to handle it going forward, particularly when we move to our new property. Any introduction now would...

    They aren't fed near the shared fenceline and would both be way too focused on eating to leave the food to fight. I'm guessing just later in the evening both standing near the fencelines or gates. ...

    I use a garmin heart rate monitor that also does intervals and different alerts.

    I set it to beep at me every minute. I wheel my minute markers and know what optimum time is and know based on...

    Yes, I was trying to say that I will be feeding less hay in the summer than in winter. I've had some folks suggest 300 bales for winter would be more than enough, but I'm tempted to get 400 to be on...

    How much hay?

    Moving my two horses to my own property for the first time ever, and wondering how much hay I'll need to buy.

    I have 2-3 acres in paddocks, about half of that is currently in grass. The scrubby...
