    I'd suggest largish dimension PT lumber, phone poles or railroad ties for the sides.... Untreated logs won't last long.....

    New arena, bank jump

    So we added a 250 x 150 Jump Arena with lights. It is at the back of our back pasture. I have a large quantity of dirt that I have recently acquired, so I'm thinking of building a bank jump. ...

    Re: 2, bullet 2, most mares will 'stand' for a few days before ovulating, so covering one time as early as possible is a terrible plan IMHO..... Sperm probably dead before egg is available. Best to...

    I would expect a nice lower level horse, good mover with a great disposition, probably not enough blood to go past Prelim with a lot of success but every horse is an individual.

    In the pic she appears straight and high behind, calf kneed especially on the RF, and a bit spindly in the cannons.

    Pedigree is not bad but not rare by any means.

    Is she an awesome mover? Why...

    FRom a strictly financial standpoint, ARIA certification is a good idea because you save enough on your first year insurance to pay for the certification.

    We put up a lot of fencing, on our farm and others. Absolutely use concrete on gate posts. Nothing worse than saggy gates.

    Had to disassemble a panel pen with a horse dangling by its back leg from the top gap. Not fun. Adding wire seems, hmm, like more things that can break into pointy edges.

    Horse #1, by breeding and sales timeline, would be best aimed at BN/N eventing where breeding is largely irrelevant if it can plotz around safely with a kid or ammie on board. Which it can probably...

    I have a mare that has to be managed 'just so' but if you do it right she produces the best foals. Was a matter of determining the best protocol (went through a couple vets) but now I think we have...

    How about a well-kept, bigger, but not 'new' truck? My 24-year-old Cummins Dodge dually tows circles around my husband's newer F350. And gets about 18mpg.

    Equidone should have been given if fescue was at all suspected. Fescue suppresses milk production, milk production is a foaling trigger, foals can go 20-40 past due as a result and they keep GROWING...

    Anglo European studbook?

    Never heard of this one until today. Looks like it takes about anything? Do any other WB registries accept AES stock for breeding or is it more like ISR?

    I wouldn't think that a sporthorse type mare would get shipped back to the USA 3 years after exporting to AUS (since LMC was born in 06 I think?) and then go back to producing race stock in '08... I...
