    I use brown HG. The brown is a good visual barrier, while fitting nicely into our neighborhood. With the brown, you have to use The coordinating HG insulators to have it coordinate. They do last a...

    You are making a loving, responsible choice. I wish we could be there in person to support you. The peer judgement and guilt, no matter how unnecessary, is really hard. Please give yourself a hug...

    With the donkeys, it seems like you would have a good chance of success. The older horse wouldn't be completely alone when you were riding.

    I have two, and they both will run a bit and whinny...

    My agent (whose wife is a riding instructor) said I could keep a horse "at cost" and it would not change my policy. This means I don't charge board-rather it's the cost of hay and feed. This works...

    Networking through horse professionals is a good idea. I board one horse so that mine has a buddy. My insurance agent said it was ok as long as she just paid for "costs", and I wasn't profiting.
