I had board fence at my former farm, stained black. It is 10 years old and held up well, though I thought the next time I would do Ramm or Centaur to avoid having to paint, etc. We recently moved...

I pinned several hundred barn photos here on Pinterest:
I had Nelsons for 9 years at my prior farm and just installed them at my new farm. I literally have not had one problem with them, ever. They also are very easy to clean (with removable bowls; I...
I have used spar marine varnish (Man o War brand, from Home Depot) in my barn, and Waterlox inside my home. I think either would work well in a barn.
It is labor intensive and the marine varnish...
I have only had very bad experiences with Craigslist (as owner advertising property) but others think it is great.
There are a number of shed row photos on pinterest
I would not let any horse leave my farm like that. What was the buyer thinking and why on earth the rush to transport a weanling?

I would get quotes from at least 3 companies. Prices can range a lot for comparable work.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good realtor for a turnkey horse property near Leesburg VA? I am looking for someone who is knowledgeable about horse properties with a good network of...
I would be careful about renting or some of the alternative uses suggested if you want to be able to sell the farm. Tenants / boarders etc may make it much harder to maintain the property in a...
I have seen a number of his offspring here and in Germany. I have been to his breeder's farm near Verden and also have seen his dam and siblings. The offspring I have seen strongly resemble...
Have you thought about uses for the wood from the collapsed barn? There are companies that buy old wood to use for reclaimed floors, etc. Or you might be able to re- use some of it yourself.

I need to ship a youngster and an older gelding from Jacksonville, Florida to San Francisco, preferably this month. Does anyone have any recommendations for good, reliable shippers that do this...
