    And yes, a lot of people, without being rich, do have $5k lying around, maybe not in cash but at least in a fairly investment. It's called a nest egg / emergency fund, and you should include it in...

    Since you don't have it, it's probably hard to imagine, but know that there is incredible peace and happiness that comes with feeling financially secure and living within your means. Around your...

    Try an ice crusher?

    cheap but small (i haven't fed hay cubes before, wasn't sure what kind of volume per feeding you need? There are even smaller/cheaper ones you could buy just to test the...

    They are not starving, any more than I "needed" those Doritos that I snacked on earlier today (because they were there, and well, they taste good). If you put a bucket of grain in your paddock, and...

    thanks. Local feed/seed co-op has taken soil samples, we expect results in a week or so.
    Come to think of it, a varmint blaster may pay for itself-- I could charge admission from all the...

    sewing machine treadle, or side bracket for an old school desk, are the leading theories at other sources. Neat find, no matter what.
    (Sorry for the link hassles!)
  8. Calling all Antique Farm Implement Detectives

    OK, we have a mystery object that erupted from the ground in our barnyard. Found it while digging for a fencing project.
    Any detectives out there who recognize what this might be from?

    How awful for your friend. Seriously, start furiously networking to find emergency boarding. Vet, farrier, tack store, feed store, church, the local Eagles lodge, ANYwhere that rural people...

    Disposition seems very sweet and willing, but I feel like he looks uncomfortable. RF motion is not fluid. Could be sound enough for your intended use, but I'd really really check those legs...

    They probably don't know that occasional dings and scrapes are normal part of owning herd animals, and that warning kicks and bites are common. Help them see that as long as the horse is not being...

    No, no, no, no, no. This is quite possibly the MOST risky and at least very stressful option. You should assume that any rescue horse is going to have significant training and/or health issues, and I...

    the raccoons will most certainly not starve without you. It is the height of berry season, insects and other animal prey are plentiful. I guarantee you they have ample food sources all around, you...

    I'm not sure you should worry about any fine lines or losing the respesct of these people-- I'd call them every day asking for their decision and timing to euthanize. The horse is suffering.

    Pay close attention to the surrounding land-use-- even if zoning permits horses, are the surrounding properties going to be friendly to farm animals and their smells and noise? Using every inch of...

    I'd clarify/distinguish what you need for tax purposes and business management purposes, because those aren't the same thing. If you keep a spreadsheet or database, you can use two classification...

    Use an iron with thin towel between the iron and sheet. Will be trial and error to find the right balance of enough heat to relax the crease vs too much heat that will melt the synthetic fibers.

    ok, I get being squeamish about it, but seriously. Put a newspaper over them and make it quick with a hammer. A vet's needle would hurt more.

    Yes, I'm already getting the local expertise by working with the feed/seed company, and with my neighbor who farms hay and will be doing the labor for me. Just thought I'd triangulate and also ask...
  20. OK, so it's time to renovate the hay fields. Now what??

    We've got ~15 ac on our property that we hay. I'm a little embarrassed to say that we haven't done anything to improve the fields, aside from regular mowing (and spreading manure--but with just a...
  21. a new category of manure spreader: Self-propelled (??!)

    Pretty sure these folks mean "ground driven" :lol:

    And, after having been given the formal 30d notice, the boarder already tried to get the extension beyond the 7th, and was told no. Which she promptly ignored and left for vacation anyway.

    yes, definitely look into the wetlands status of the pond before taking action.

    the vacation/trainer comment was unnecessary, but I don't think rises to the level of awfulness that some here perceive. But OP, be aware that it reduced your power over her, which is exactly what...
