    I love ours. We have almost no flies or bugs in the barn. I love seeing them fly in and out.

    The only issue I have is when the babies fall out of the nest and die. That makes me sad!

    The last time I had a gooseneck hitch install was 2001, and back then it was at least $500, so yes, it seems like it is worth it.

    Horses that are actively selling for $5000 do not usually hit the slaughter pipeline. Sounds like an overreaction on the part of the OP.

    Not sure where you are located, but two examples come to mind.

    Sadly, I don't think his persona is new. He has always been like this and now for some reason has decided not to hide it. Maybe he is realizing there is a limit to his market and he will soon reach...

    I would definitely go horse shopping in France. But, I am a dedicated quarter horse person, so I might have to travel all of France to find some. That would be such a hardship! ;)
