So, two similar facilities, both 50 stalls. One is family owned, paid for and just enjoys making a small profit off of boarding. The other has a 3 million dollar mortgage.
This is where the...
There is also a yahoo group on Pemphigus. It has a very large number of cases and histories.
Second vote for Transfer Factor, and Biostar EQ.
We had good luck with several different detoxes.
Mats over stone, no bedding.
Never add energy when the horse is going the wrong way, it only makes them go the wrong way faster.
Because boarders will leave over $10. One empty stall eats the margin of several full ones.
And be prepared to put a ton down as farms are appraising at about 40 cents on the dollar these days.
What is access to a 500K or more building worth? Any decent facility around here is going to be way over 1M if not closer to 2M with land. That's a big number to come up with every month whether...
Before mortgage, taxes, insurance, and utilities.
The problem is, there is always somebody willing to do it for less. A purpose built facility constructed to code, with all the amenities, paying a mortgage, taxes, and commercial insurance will...
I did the mirrored doors off CL. Removed the glass and mounted to a frame.
Pros - cheap and has safety backing.
Cons - glass is very thin and breaks easily, reflections are distorted due to...
The exact point I made in an earlier post.
For 1 x 17 hand horse per day.
1/3 bale of Hay = $2.32 (out on pasture 12 hrs) - Plus the cost of stacking and storing
Daily feed - $2.75 (TC Senior) Plus the cost and time of getting or...
Take in dollar one, homeowners drops you that day. Have a website, homeowners drops you that day. Have a sign out front, homeowners drops you that day. We have experienced every one. There is no...
For less than $7 per day, I can think of better ways to spend my time than caring for a horse.
We don't even board and our insurance is 6K per year just to host clinics.
And how many places are still "getting by" without commercial insurance.
What does it cost per day to board a dog? Our most basic is $25 to $30 per night in our area.
How anyone thinks 1K per month for boarding is unreasonable is beyond me. A decent facility with...
Unless it is filled with helium, 6,000lbs is pretty light. It will be much closer to 10K with horses in it.
Have you seen the price of that stuff?
This will be the next fight to occur. There is big tax money in switching us from ag to commercial, also huge implications on the facilities moving to commercial building standards. The politicians...
If $$$ is being exchanged, you are commercial.
Make sure the covenants were actually recorded, and did you acknowledge their existence when you purchased.
Then get some of these to install it. I always put screws close to the corners just to be sure they don't get pulled up and expose a sharp edge.
Menards, in with the metal studs. 1 1/2 galvanized angle 10' long.
Pass the rope through the ring in the horses stall, tie off on the ring in the next stall. That way you never have to be in the stall with the horse and can close the divider before tying off.
$20 vs a few bucks and some self drilling screws.
