    Project done! installed a couple pulleys and a boat winch today, and that @#$$%& harrow is now very politely hanging tidy against the shed wall. I can pull it with the ATV far enough into the...

    Picking up on the earlier comment that it's surprising that a "white collar type" would do this, and that her FB defense is compelling because it's well-written and sounds classy: there is no causal...

    Good points, all.

    Simkie, we're in east central IA. Do PM me your contact-- we will likely shop outside our immediate area (which has lots of upscale hobby farms, so I'm guessing pricing will...

    thanks for the nudge to watch the video-- priceless. The whole time I watched it I thought: "It's Wilhelm !!"

    I actually don't think it looks simple to make-- if you don't get the shape just...

    Thanks, all. Great tip on USEF-- hubby wants a deere. I'm more willing to look into off-brand tractors like LS, but we'll see. We're on a "within the next year" horizon, but honestly I...
  6. are there certain times of year when it's best to buy tractors?

    Title pretty much says it all. Since tractor dealers don't really advertise, I don't have a sense of the sales "rhythm". What times of year are they most motivated to sell and negotiate?

    Pass. Head-bobbing lame, after such a long pasture rest, would be a hard stop for me. Hock injections would be good if she were just stiff or short-strided. I don't think they can reliably bring a...

    We don't ride on roads much but I had to get from point A to point B with her one day and don't have a trailer. The roads are rural and largely untraveled, so it was do-able and we rode in the ditch...

    Drenching rain or mist? If just misty, I wouldn't lose sleep over not sheeting him. But more than likely I'd put the sheet on, and just get up a bit earlier than usual to strip off. I don't think...

    Your link does not appear to work. It takes me to a Polidaddy page but I don't see anything about your program.

    I am not normally a member of the grammar & spelling squad, but since you insist your new website was built by a professional who knows how to spell: Tell your professional that the heading on the...

    What is the problem with humidity? Solar works just fine in the southeast US. Note that Georgia Power just purchased 600 megawatts worth of of solar PV plants (=600 million watts).

    BTW I completely agree it's a fair question, to ask for total environmental impact as a measure of the "desirability" of any given fuel source. Here's what my company's doing. Among other...

    My first thought was to cover part of the outdoor as well.

    What about just a partial cover around the perimeter of the existing arena, where the track is protected but the interior is open? A...

    Thanks all for taking the time to advise. Decided to go with the 3/4" with fines which they call Road base around here. Like you guys have wisely said, the smaller stone will just get eaten by the...

    I think using gates to open up both sides of the cross-fencing is a great idea. I sometimes have to lead my horse pretty far to open or close certain field gates before I mount up, and it's a good...

    I can see how you feel. I honestly wouldn't like it either. So, you probably have to deal with it for awhile, but start saving up to find a new place. This is the eternal problem of...

    you could also give them a sacrifice rubber tub for them to splash in, if they love it so much. :)

    I guess it depends on the personalities behind the camera. If you have a good relationship and don't get a creep-factor from them now, I doubt they're the type who will sit in front of the PC and...

    Everyone pays for every industry's tax incentives, including the many incentives designed for the fossil fuel industries since their inception, and no sign of repeal despite the robust profitability...

    not to be pessimistic, but that may not be the case. Component costs have plummeted over the last five years but two factors are pushing them back up. US govt has just slapped (bulls***) punitive...

    re: the AC/DC question, the systems include an inverter so the output is AC.

    To evaluate the feasibility/economics of a project you own (vs lease), a good starting point is NREL's PVWatts: http://pvwatts.nrel.gov/. Input your home address, it will suggest the closest...

    I know, I know. But since I don't need a full load for any of them, I'm thinking I compromise and do one. In order of what-makes-me-happiest (which is how every farm project should be ranked,...
