    I think you made the wise choice.

    Another angle to consider is leaving the wildlife to be wild. Deer feeding stations have been studied and found to be extremely disruptive to the deer...

    Anyone with business experience knows that you need to know your competition as much as your own balance sheet.

    My wife and I boarded for several years at several barns. Now we have our own farm with a few boarders.

    I've considered the numbers in my head many times for ourselves and the other boarding...

    I would consider putting a 50' circle of tape fencing around it with a solar charger, as long as it's not in a high traffic area (anywhere they tend to run when they get excited).

    Or simply do not...

    Yellowjackets love to make ground nests.

    That doesn't mean they made the hole, but they own it now.

    I'm quite sure of the ID of these.

    After reading that these are not entirely dormant at night and also post sentries to guard the nest entrance, I knew I was going to call a pro.

    Not all...

    European Hornet removal?

    While mowing, I found a nest of these formed in the base of an oak tree.

    They are not in an area likely to cause trouble for us, but they are a non-native species. On that basis of being...

    This is tough, unless we assume we're all participants in a survey.

    Turnout: I do believe all horses should get out once per day for free time. In bad weather a couple of hours will do, but we...

    Literally true. You might be a retired Marine or a Marine. There are no other honorable options.

    If the lease has nothing about pest control being your responsibility, it's the landlord's responsibility.

    There may be prevailing laws that apply, but Pest Control, Maintenance, and Repairs are...

    IMHO:
    The mechanic should have his inspection privileges revoked. The mechanic should be held liable on some level, but manslaughter - I dunno.

    I think some people are incredibly stupid in their...

    How are your family and neighbors with this idea?

    They don't make noise often, but when they do, you'll hear it.

    "Spreading" manure to me means pulls a manure spreader.

    Breaking up the piles is fairly easy work as long as your drag is not very aggressive and you keep your pasture grass at least roughly...

    I'm a fan of keeping it simple, and these cars are much simpler than a hybrid. Hybrid is not the only way to be economical and environmentally smart. (Hybrids are highly reliable but still they...

    One advantage to boarding two or three is they may become their own turnout group. Some boarding facilities have a number of small pastures, others of course have two big ones. That's part of the...

    Our float valve works well, but I test it each time before I walk away. Still, if the tub is not dead level, it can fill and overflow without tripping the valve. Or it could fall off the trough -...

    Judging ROI vs. the stock market is an unfair comparison for almost any investment. Entirely different risk profile.

    Another reason to buy real estate is taxes. Paying less taxes certainly helps.

    We use the one with the float that cuts off flow. Works well but I wouldn't leave for vacation with that stopping things.

    You might make the person clip their car keys or cell phone to the valve....

    I would not compromise (much) on the durability and safety of your fencing. It would be better IMHO to have 10 acres fenced in great fencing than 20 acres of second-rate stuff.

    gravel

    Also remember that post holes are on even intervals. Make darn sure that each one has been filled either by you or the contractor. If you think one should be there and isn't, get out your...
