    I use human bath poofs- the ones that cost $1. They hold a decent amount of

    I have a mare that does this so I use a smaller water trough (50 gallons) and flip it over to use as a platform then put the 100 gallon on top. It's high enough that she doesn't try. Not sure how...

    Not much to add but Middleton Place Horse Trials was one of my favorite horse trials. I loved it when they had the show jumping on the front lawn of the house. :)

    It can wreak havoc on their feet if they spend time in it drinking or splashing/playing. Being wet constantly can make their feet shelly and the mud can lead to pulled shoes.

    I've learned that all it takes is one bad boarder, or one high maintenance boarder, or one injury prone horse to make my life hell. Screen them carefully and if you have ANY doubts don't take them on...

    I panicked when I first saw that yesterday bc we had a mare there for sinus surgery and we picked her up Jan 30. Scary to think that EHV-1 has popped up in Georgia.

    I teach them to drink grain tea. I put a quart of senior or other pelleted feed in 4-5 gallons of warm water so that it dissolves and all 15 horses at the barn will drink several gallons at a time. ...
