    You can't judge construction job by the cost of one component. The flu for wood stoves is very expensive, and I'm guessing he's building some kind of stone hearth underneath it. And yes, you're...

    Like above poster says, it seems like you're getting ahead of yourself. You need a thorough business plan, and be very specific and conservative with your numbers. How many horses at a time and per...

    Wasn't commenting at all on whether strangers can knock on doors--happens here frequently and I open the door with a smile to see what I can help them with (for the most part). But, I'm not going to...

    Here in IA, if you see unused land that looks useful but is not being hayed, grazed, or cropped, it's probably enrolled in CRP. Don't know if that's the case in TX.
    I think you are better off...

    PS A lone round post set out in the open may quickly become a butt-scratching post, so make it a beefy one that's set deep. :) (Be forewarned that the fence around the utlity pole may also.) ...

    Holy cow, I kinda can't believe you're even asking this. You are allowing yourself to be taken advantage of, and she is NOT treating you well. But the behavior you allow is the behavior you promote,...

    Snail mail saves them a step, since they don't have to print it in order to post in the barn.
    I think the 13th is too soon. People need time to clean their tack, decide what to get rid of, etc. ...

    Why not invite them too? They may have older inventory and welcome the chance to take advantage of the foot traffic.
  9. You're likely to get more inventory if consignors...

    You're likely to get more inventory if consignors don't have to be there all day to handle sales, but I would take a cut of the sale price. A flat fee is not in your favor, because one person may...

    I was "gifted" two ducks and soooo regretted it. Aside from the copious guano, they make every water dish disgusting immediately upon refilling. As entertaining as they were, just say no.

    It's clear I'm not alone in my Red Envy. :lol:

    I'm sure Mr. Toad wasn't up all the way in the track. In addition to the track issues, the door was getting hung up on a rise of dirt, so when it...

    The captions are indeed goofy--any inadvertent horse posture/behavior is given a positive significance. But I dunno, these horses seem really kind and happy and I bet many participants in the program...

    I think that a horse with indeterminate breeding is an embarrassment to your stable, and you should send her to me immediately. I will make the sacrifice of hiding her at my farm, to spare you that...

    Just like we humans ovulate whether or not we've been canoeing, hens do too. No roo needed.

    Dressage Fancy, that's an interesting idea about fencing horizontal vs vertical. How do you accomplish...

    Frosty, that is a great response. When someone asks one of those "questions" that are really statements, I don't address their question directly. I try to answer in a way that makes them defend why...

    In my mid 30s, I developed a 2" solid gray streak in front, and 20-30% gray elsewhere. I rocked the streak at first, thinking it looked dramatic and proud that I was "owning it". But I have a pale,...

    Is there volunteer work that you could do from home? Such as data entry (remote access is usually pretty easy to set up), or telephone work?

    Goodhors, to get the max speed effect, I'll have to change out the speedlimit signs from 35 to 55. :lol:

    LOL. It's so true. Road dust is a great camouflage. And now that a couple hours have passed, it does look darker.

    This is a GREAT idea. Sell him outright for $900 or 1000 vs the 1400 owed, and then you both are done with each other. To me, it would be worth it to avoid another 7 months of hassling her for...

    Aack Red paints don't match

    Have a guy out there right now painting our big shop/garage outbuilding. It's right next to the old barn, which we painted last year. Because the barn is wood and the shop is metal, the reds look...

    This was fun to read and your enthusiasm made me smile. Glad you had such a great experience.

    Letters and emails are never, ever as effective in persuading people to change their behavior vs talking to them in person or on the phone. Especially for Ms Oiler-- you've already done the written...

    Adding "Mr." or "Sir" to the front of the name might give it more charm than just the one-word version. Sir Stormy or Mr, Flint is kinda cute.

    Or, use initials?
    Gee (for Gray). Or BG (Big...
