    I've used the BOT polos while driving, but I switched to the Draper Saratogas. I felt they were a bit more secure as a polo coming loose while driving can be a bit more complicated than riding.

    Thank you! Yes, additional livestock isn't in the picture, and partitioning it down and forcing them isn't really what I had in mind.

    Yep, agreed with the advice that your lines may be too high, when the lines are at their sides they are much less likely to turn and face you.

    I'm starting to think its the brand of peat frankly, dust reports here are either one way or the other.

    My horses being actively in and out dozens of times during a day certainly is a big factor...

    Had an interesting test with the peat this past weekend. I traveled for three days, so just had the BO stop by to drop feed and check water. Normally, I tend to the shed daily - round up all the...

    Its your saddle now, you may do anything you wish with it. Full stop.

    Do know however, turning around and relisting immediately means that the sale history will be current in ebay's history...

    Interesting about the flies. With the season winding down, the stable flies have one last hurrah it seems. While they have been aggressive outside, none are found in the shed in the last few days.

    Touching wood, my Shelter Logic has been my hay and carriage barn for several years now, standing up to Irene and a direct hit from Sandy. Recently a 40' oak tree gave me a few new skylights, but...

    Perhaps true of certain types of peat moss, but I have a hard time believing the peat moss I'm purchasing took 3000 years to establish. Seriously, if it was that precious and took that long to renew,...

    So, three days into my experiment and I can't say I'm unhappy. Still odd seeing brown dirt-like bedding, but so far thats the only real downside.

    In terms of cost, its the same as sawdust bedding...
  17. I'm trying peat bedding, and chronicaling my adventure... for your reading pleasure

    Periodically I have to throw out my unsoiled sawdust from the run-in shed. The horses come and go 24/7. With the wet/dry weather we've been having, they track in mud which eventually dries and...

    Looking at the vehicle, it looks cheaply made. Style-wise, thats really a non-issue for a first vehicle, but safety-wise it may be another matter.

    Often times knock-off vehicles look ok from a...

    I rode this way for quite some time a while back. I just had an 11' lead rope that had a loop one one end and a popper on the other. I dislike snaps generally, and especially on set ups like this as...
