    We had already blocked areas the vet thought might be of concern below separately on a different date, and the vet specifically used a blocking agent in a way to try to minimize that.

    Normandy Shores was the show name of a lovely horse in a barn I worked at. I never rode him, but thoroughly enjoyed caring for him. Not sure why I picked it beyond that..

    Horse is now 90-95% sound, but still slightly off behind. Ultrasound showed what appears to be arthritis in the hip. When we blocked the hip, there was huge improvement. Vet also added steroids to...

    That's not "shifting".

    I had one, she's still with my mom 15 years in (birthday today actually).

    Very aloof. Less friendly than my cats, so saying "cat-like" isn't fair or nice to my cats.

    She likes to run. She's...

    Got it home tonight and used it on some overgrown weedy lawn. Did alright. Did one trip through a brushy field and laughed with glee as it ate everything in it's sight!

    Ok I lied, a used swisher 44" rough cut trail cutter just came up. Looking at it and hopefully bringing it home Friday!

    It's the 12.5 HP model.

    I've been an insomniac my whole life, even laying in bed awake for hours when I'm exhausted.

    Melatonin has changed my life. I know it doesn't work for everyone but even half a pill can shut off...

    I have a small horse place on the corner in an otherwise mostly single family sub division.

    Yup.

    It's also a little rural town.

    After catching a few people feeding the horses (and sometimes...

    I have two auto troughs that are heated. Installed before we purchased the property so no idea what they are.

    Hydro screwed up and forgot to add that meter to our bill, so our shop, well for...

    We've just discovered we can rent a brush hog rather affordably for a few days to work on our scrubby fields. Will likely be looming at a regular tow behind mower or ride on.

    Thanks :)

    Trust me, if you have 5 acres and your ride on dies, do not cheap out and think "a gas push mower will be fine, how much do we really now anyways?"

    We have some pretty brushy fields that would...

    You could try adding electrolytes to one of the buckets of water, since he doesn't like it in loose form.

    Also no sympathy here. You're not doing him any favours by leaving him things you think are worth money simply because you don't want/can't move them.

    You're a self admitted slob, left behind a...

    I have signs along my perimeter fenceline that indicate it is an electric fence and to please not feed or pet horses as they may bite. Not the same as the liabikity waiver type signs but I figure it...

    I think so many people just aren't realistic about the type of horse they need or are capable of riding/handling. If you are a nervous rider, 5' tall, and showing w/t, you do not need a 17h horse...

    Sounds like it'll be rideable for the time being, and over time you can decide if you want to change it.

    My ring is 100 x 180 (roughly 30 x 55m) and it's a nice size for personal use. It's wide enough to have room to canter sweeping turns and set jumps away from the track. I don't jump big or have...
