    First, my sympathies about the cellulitis. Pony and I are on that same wretched roller coaster right now too.

    You are right. They are not potatoes. It does look like soybean plants, although it is odd that there don't seem to be bean pods. Depending what kind of weather you've had: too cool spring, wet and...

    Aw, heck, just tell them you're a new neighbor and a city slicker. You've never seen such amazing harvest equipment and were curious what it was and did/what crops it was harvesting.

    Started using this earlier this summer, since I'm leasing a horse that has sweet itch. So far he is doing very well, still has a mane and tail (which I'm told was almost gone by this time of the...

    I was going to suggest this one too. I have (and still do) use this for my 3 horses. It's stretchy lycra type material and does not rub at all. Very soft. The mesh is bubbled away from the eyes and...

    Any US source? It's so frustrating to have to squeeze into 36s. Slightly larger is sooo much more comfy and flattering. I'd prefer, traditional not full seat breeches. TIA

    Yes, this is true. If people would read the fly spray labels and understand the chemistry, they'd realize that the vast majority of the horse fly sprays all contain an ingredient from the pyrethroid...

    I really like the zebra sheet that came with my new pony. It's sturdy, yet soft and flexible and has a belly band. So far he has not seemed too hot on the warmest days and it is protecting him well....

    Runny eyes makes me think seasonal allergies. May be itchy without showing hives or the like, but just feels like jumping out his skin. Have you run an allergy test panel? Expensive, but may be worth...

    This is what I have in my 7 stall barn. I've both taken in boarded horses and just had my own here. I love this arrangement. The horses have all seemed very happy no matter what arrangement I've had:...
