    I use the Dover circuit girths, and order in the same size. I think the elastic stays strong, and prefer that it's dark brown/looks cleaner.

    It is your money, so I like the design of the first one. Very basic and sleek, with so many useful pockets. Diaper bags, or that last one even, can look a little fussy to me. I have to say though,...

    On hikes, I take a Ruffwear flat-out leash. Basically just an adjustable leash, but nice that it has a traffic handle. In that situation, if I had to have more line, I might carry an attachment...

    I had two pygmy goats, and I was immediately in love. Even if I did find them on cars. They followed me everywhere, and would curl up next to the door when I stepped inside. So entertaining and...

    We bring in more than a thousand square bales to three different farms. Comparatively, moving only 150 bales in a horse or stock trailer seems feasible and safest.

    I've passed by accidents caused by falling hay bales, involving multiple vehicles. At the best, that turned into an even more expensive load of hay, and at the worst... Your idea of using an...

    I start with hot water+epsom salts, sometimes with betadine, in a plastic ziplock baggie. I soak a limited number of times depending how hard the hoof is, then switch to epsom salt poultice.

    I have multiple horses, and split vet procedures like dentals and farrier appointments into half for the visit. I've never asked for a discount, but the farrier does seem to appreciate having more...

    For actual Leave It, whatever they want more treats/toys, I line up a few items. This is free leash, not at heel. Say Leave It for the first two, and keep them away after they explore. Don't...

    I wouldn't use "leave it," it'd be a "no" command. Anything that I never want to see again is a No behavior and that'd be cat chasing. For that, it'd be No, clapping my hands to get more attention...

    Sublimeequine, no there is not. I am fully aware of worst cases and risks. I am aware of regret in life, and this is not one of them.

    It is not much trouble to offer water. I just never got into the habit of doing it before a ride, but always offer after the ride. Even if I end up dumping it, it's useful for a bit of information....

    I used to show our horses in a running braid, and they are TBs. The mane had to be slightly longer than a pulled mane, but it stayed in for the day, especially with braid-aid. It was done tightly,...

    We had to redo septic as part of the sale. It was around 10K ten years ago. It has a pump (and an alarm) because the drain field is slighter higher. Some properties we looked at had a sand filter....

    Finding Rambo replacement surcingles?

    It looks like I can't find a surcingle that went missing in a large pasture. I'm hoping someone knows where I can order these? Only the elastic surcingles are coming up in searches.
