    I have an old International Harvester from the mid-50s. It is very heavy duty and does a terrific job. It has been going nonstop for 5 years with no issues, and I only empty it when it is full,...

    I totally understand. I know I am supposed to love them but I hate the poop!!!!! I tolerate it, though, and just scrub buckets like crazy all summer.

    I also use old trees that fall on the farm as super heavy duty cavaletti. They are great. Here is a pic of my baby KWPN jumping one today. You can also see some of those barrels cut in half.. Those...

    Vxf111, the situation screams that AC was thinking "go be someone else's problem!" Not an evaluation of the fact the case had any merit. But that's just my practical, off the cuff reckoning. (I.e....

    Buy it from Amazon, way cheaper. I have one I use for farm stuff that measures in feet, it is a Rolatape, very accurate and paid half the BOB price (on sale). They are $30 cheaper now and come in...

    Let's be clear. You were not robbed. You sold something and when it came time to buy it back, you did not want to pay the price the seller was asking so you declined to repurchase it. That is not...

    My favorite is the maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal packets. Mix them and the med with a little concentrate and horses seem to love it.

    We moved my older JRT from my family farm, where he'd lived for 11 years (he stayed when I went to law school), to my farm when my parents divorced. He did great. Of course he was still on a farm...

    I love them!!!! Especially because I have really long fingers and they sell gloves in size 10. Most tack stores seem to think riders couldn't possibly have fingers any longer than an 8. Not to...

    I found out a few years ago that instead of a horrible hole punch, I could use my power drill to make holes in things. It is sort of amazing how easy it is. No more trying to wrestle those da%#...

    Use a long acting weed killer, not just Roundup which will kill what is there now but not prevent new growth.

    Disagree about mowing, with weed killer you often want leaf to remain because most of...

    It should just mean that the charge stops at the gate and anything past it when you unhook it, not that it ruins everything. And then it should light back up when you rehook it. Electric fences are...

    When I was a groom, if it took me 45 minutes to prepare a single horse, I would have been fired!

    I have a chomper who came off the track looking like a shark. He is still mouthy but much improved on the flat in a Novocontact eggbutt and a plain caveson. I tried a Micklem but it didn't help. ...

    Look for someone who grows a really nice pure orchard instead of Timothy if you want horse-appeal in your hay. You can't always tell by looking at it, though. Buy a couple trial bales before...

    Those are also terrible pics to try to judge a horse by. I don't dislike the horse off the cuff. But I think you need much better pics and video before anyone can give you a decent eval.

    That...

    I think many of these posts miss the mark about top horses. IME, as a GP horse groom and having some "pro" horses myself, they are not quirky because they are untrained, and trainers don't dislike...
