    Complaining about judging on FB or any public board shows a serious lack of class.

    Some judges really and truly suck though!

    I prefer square corners so I can make them "go deep" into the corners if that makes any sense. I've also ridden an idiot or two that I've had to use to corners to stop or to mount up- but as a rule I...

    We've done the same thing at least twice. Mama was definitely glad to see her babies back.

    But really, what are you going to do if there is a nest and you have to take the trailer? Can't wait...

    My current barn cat was a freebie from the shelter. I stopped by just to see what ferals they had and the ladies practically loaded this cat in my car. I hadn't brought a carrier- no problem we'll...

    I had this pile of farm junk- the remnants of a silage wagon (we made a hay wagon out of the running gear), broken gates, leftover barn metal and metal scraps from DH's shop and assorted other junk....

    You're supposed to pin it down? I just laid it down on my driveway and the dump truck driver spread gravel over it. It's been about 11 yrs and no problems.

    I love my pond. It came with the farm. Generally I don't allow horse access to it, but every now then (I need to do it now) I'll put up temp electric on the side that isn't fenced and let a couple...

    We elevate our 100 gallon tanks about 16-18". DH builds a platform out of whatever scrap lumber we have kicking around- they last a few years before needing to be replaced. I have noticed that where...

    Funny thing about this- when I was still a teenager I had a Morgan I trained myself, a 3 or 4 year old, bred to be hot, little gelding that could be goofy at times. We were in the grooming stall at...

    Obviously there's a line. One would hope that boarder would have some sense and wouldn't attempt to sue for ADA compliance. I'd be willing to bet that most facilities would just stop offering...

    I think it's ridiculous to expect every ag facility to become ADA compliant. A barn is not a supermarket with flat floors and a paved parking lot. Horses are unpredictable and move faster than...

    Definitely consider more hay storage. We haul about 2 weeks's worth of hay at a time. In bad weather, it's a PITA to get hay to the horse barn from my very own hay barn about 400 feet away.
