I've had quite a few TBs (currently have 5!) and the best thing I've found for putting on weight is a forage based diet. As much good quality hay as they'll eat, sugar beet, and oil. (I use up to a...
I stumbled across a video of PRB Bull Riding on Youtube and I'm kinda hooked on them.
I have a few questions though-
I see they have horses in the ring but don't use them very much. Why is...
I did think about that but I have the shorter gates already (they used to be on my drive) so can just switch them over. The long gate is going across the drive (with a wheel) so I'm basically just...
I have in-floor heating in my bathroom and love it. Very cosy, doesn't seem to cost the earth to run (I've never actually broken down how much it is, but my bill hasn't gone up!).
I have a few things planned- I want to plant some trees to make a windbreak/take up some water. Planning on about 1/2 acre at the moment, but that might change.
I'm also planning to improve my...
I don't use alfalfa but do use sugar beet pulp. I set it up to soak when I do a late check, normally about 11pm. I use a big rubber trug and cold water. It gets fed with every meal, so lasts fine...
Mine have bolts on them, but I use a chain wrap for back up.
First aid stuff, buckets, tack repair stuff, maybe a small selection of feed/hay. Basic strap goods- headcollars, lead ropes.
I read somewhere that insurance rates are going up (in the UK) because of house fires caused by wood burners. They're not something I'd want in my tack room. I've used an oil filled radiator in the...
Mine are all concrete with mats over. I really like them- easy to keep clean, no smell, and because the mats are one piece/sealed, nothing moves. I use a fair amount of bedding but deep litter...
We were talking about this at work the other day. It's lovely to see some of the old ways still being used- so much better for the environment! Less noisy, too!
I put mine in the washing machine on a cold wash. They come out like new. :)
I dunno. Mine was blocked because I was using my middle name/last name rather than first name/last name. I had to prove to them who I was before they'd undo it.
I always thought it was a rip stop measure- if stepped on, the tear will hit one of the ribs and stop.
Just a head's up about Facebook- they've been pretty quick to block/close pages that are made under false names.
Yes, I have a mare with the same kind of mouth and she wears a thin bit that sits low in her mouth. Works for us. :)
A terry washcloth is great for getting sweaty gunk out of sensitive areas. The scrubby texture lifts dried sweat without being too rough.
I don't think you can truly tell what any horse will do under saddle until they're under saddle, regardless of what they're bred to do. The massive free jumper might not replicate that from with a...
You also don't have to hose. A couple of big buckets of cold water (ice optional) and a big sponge can really cool them down too. I wet, scrape, wet, scrape.
I agree with you. The money they've spent to save one dog could have been used to save many. I also fail to see how that poor dog can live anything like a normal life.
What happened to the other horses?
It's so much easier to win a battle of strength with them when they're teeny. :lol:
The horse quickly gave in. Not how I'd want my horses shoeing.
