    Thanks for the feedback. Right now this is just a hypothetical idea for the future- we don't even have a kid yet ;) Will take all feedback into consideration. By riding I meant mostly lead line at...

    Saddle breaking a mini donkey?

    Can mini donks be saddle broke for small children? How does one go about training a mini donk (or mini horse) under saddle?? Obviously I would assume that many of the early steps are similar to a...

    Am I the only one thinking that if my neighbors put a large spot light next to my barn and riding ring that would be on every evening, I would be so happy that I would probably bake them cookies or...

    DH and I bought a small farm a couple years ago so I could bring my horse home. We have him, board another, and have a mini donk (DH's). This story should answer your question-

    I was considering...

    Mustang for (low level) eventing?

    I'm not horse shopping, this is more just a hypothetical/theoretical question. Does anyone have any experience with eventing mustangs? I realize tb's are much more common, particularly for the upper...

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! Good to know so many people make it work. If we were to get a dog we would probably adopt an adult dog rather than a puppy. There is a section of our yard that would...

    Dogs and working full time

    DH and I bought a farm a couple years ago and have 2 horses, a mini donkey, and 2 cats. I really want a dog, but DH says no for 2 primary reasons- one because we already spend enough $ on animals and...

    Vacations for DH and I. We've been together for over 8 years and have never gone on a "real" vacation. We even nixed the honeymoon to buy my (first and so far only) horse instead. As our income...

    You can build a custom large cage fairly cheaply and easily. This website, while for guinea pigs, has a lot of great resources and instructions for building your own cage (or you can buy them from...

    I have 2 (1 mine, 1 boarded). My guy adapted quickly and well to being left alone when the other horse leaves the property. He'll call out a few times, maybe run for a minute, and then he remembers...

    Thanks to everyone for the feedback! I think we're going to contact a local breeder and try to go visit them this weekend to see them in person, talk to someone who knows them well, and get some more...

  14. Hubby wants a mini donkey. Considerations?

    So my mostly non-horsey DH and I have a small farm where we have our 1 horse and board 1 other. DH is non-horsey in the sense that he did not grow up with horses, does not ride, but likes them as...
  15. Tank de-icer stopped working- why???

    I've had a de-icer for my 100 gallon tub that until yesterday or today was working perfectly fine, no matter how frigid the temperature. This morning I checked the water when I put my horse out and...

    Well I just got back from the hay dealer and spoke with the owner- he was very nice, and said he's a hay guy and a horse guy and even he wasn't overly satisfied with the load I just got and said it...

    The new load are yellow/gold throughout, only a few wisps of green here and there and it is mostly stem, little leaf. One of the horses is eating it, the other (pickier eater) is mostly turning his...

    Thank you all for your feedback!! Glad (??) to know I'm not alone lol. I will have a calm discussion with my supplier tomorrow to get a better understanding of what I can expect from them and what my...

    Thanks for the feedback. The most recent supplier is fairly close by and just a distributor, they do not farm/grow their own hay. I will go talk to them this weekend and maybe you're right, either I...
  20. Buying hay: bad luck, unreasonable expectations, or???

    Sorry, this is a bit of a long vent but I'm interested in others' opinions on this, particularly if you are a hay farmer/supplier.

    I have a small farm with 2 horses and get small-medium loads of...

    I had a somewhat similar situation recently. I'm not a trainer and don't have a lesson barn, but I have a private farm at home and have an extra stall for a boarder. I was recently looking for a...

    Do you know what brand/model of pellet stove this is? Not sure if it matters or not, but we have one in our home so just curious if it is the same! Glad everything was OK for your friend- lucky!

    I haven't read the other responses but check into lumber liquidators. DH and I bought an old house last year that had old dirty (no matter how much you scrubbed it) tile. The floor is uneven and...

    Thanks for the ideas. Wood stove ashes are not really an option for me- we have a pellet stove, and since they burn so efficiently the ashes are quite minimal- a week's worth would only cover a few...

    Icy paddock- suggestions??

    This winter is already miserable and it's not even January- ugh! What do you all do when your (only) paddock is better suited for ice skating than turnout?? We've gotten more snow than usual so far...
