    Just as an aside, ducks are cuter and more entertaining than chickens and they don't scratch everything up. They also will lay eggs, and no, they don't need a pond. They aren't quite as voracious at...

    A small flock of hens is very easy to keep :) No rooster needed, and I wouldn't recommend one, the noise might aggravate you or your neighbors. Chickens are wonderful little garbage disposals--they...

    I think it is a lovely jacket and would be fine in the hunters. I do feel that it would clash with yellow bunnies on a gray horse, though :)

    I would venture to guess that if the daughter isn't riding that either means that she is losing interest or isn't able to take advantage of your generosity for other reasons. Sometimes riding is fun...

    I jump smaller stuff about every other day with horses that have an issue that I'm working on. I keep the jump sizes small--often even just poles or cross rails or cavaletti sized verticals--and I...

    Ariat and TS are my favorites for show breeches.

    For show coats, you need to find what fits you and looks good on YOU. There are tons of great brands to choose from, you just need to try on a...

    It sounds like the problem for the OP is more the quality of braids rather than the color. For myself I prefer traditional colored yarn (black or chestnut brown), but beautifully done braids with a...

    Last year I started to get back into hunting after a long hiatus and for my partner I took my husband's QH mare. She caught on pretty quick and was a willing, low drama, surefooted hunt mount. I only...

    I use sheep for pasture rotation. When they are done with a field it looks like a golf course. They delight in eating brushy plants and a lot of weeds/plants the horses aren't interested in. They get...

    We do get storms here and every so often high winds that knock down trees. On the whole, though, my parents who live in Maryland have suffered worse storm/tree damage at their property there. We have...

    I guess I'll play devil's advocate here and say that I think you should consider selling. It sounds to me like you have the expertise to bring him along--but don't have the time and energy. No, it...

    Originally I had planned on carrying on pretty much as usual. Then I found out I was pregnant with twins and ended up on bed rest and then had another baby 18 months later. I wish I had prepared...

    jewll27, I was told the same thing, but perhaps that is only true for the higher end versions, not the matte version? My two shells are different sizes and have different sized liners.
