    I've tried so many and they all seem to be about the same though as mentioned above the Petzls are nice - they have various models to fit your needs but can get expensive. Mine is so old that I...

    I've used both Horsemans Lab and Parascreen. Horsemans Lab was great to deal with and super fast with the results - just seemed more personalized. Unfortunately I don't recall how exact their counts...

    People tend to forget that 1/2-tons are not built on the same frame as a 3/4-ton. I'd never pull a GN with a 1/2-ton...never. The frame isn't designed for it while a 3/4-ton is. I've pulled the same...

    Same here. I bought a few pairs quite a few years ago and they have lasted ridiculously well. Super cheap (around $12 if I remember correctly) so I don't care if they get ruined...but I couldn't ruin...

    TC Lite is an excellent feed for horses who are easy-keepers or who have metabolic issues. You don't feed much (follow what is recommended on the bag) which is nice. My mare has been on it for quite...
