    We skip the trailer and haul our horses (large minis/small ponies) in our extended Chevy Xpress cargo van. For planned trips, we fasten straw bales to the bulkhead for extra protection and our floor...

    We have a monstrous, heavy-duty Ryobi with a metal blade -- after more than 12 years and four acres of clearing blackberry canes, thistles and assorted weeds and brush, it is still going strong. No...
  3. soil cement (dirtcrete) as footing base for run-in?

    We're putting in a metal carport and adding wood walls as a run-in primary shelter for our horses (small ponies/minis).

    It will be placed at the highest point in their field, with a french drain...

    I totally understand where you're coming from. You will find the reverse snobbism here (I'm viewed as an artsy-fartsy, liberal Portlander, although we've lived here 12 years), but there are also many...

    Where in western Oregon are you, MVP?

    While it's decidedly unstylish, horse property in Columbia County (Scappoose, St. Helens, Rainier, etc) is still affordable. It's close enough to Portland,...

    We have no-climb with hot wire top and bottom. You can run the hot wire on the opposite side to keep the cows off -- you can get offset extenders designed to attach to the back sides of t-posts or do...

    Are you Harry Potter? Is that a drone or The Golden Snitch? Who will win this game of Quidditch?

    I'm sorry -- I know this is not a joke. In addition to the possibility of a Peeping Tom, I'd be...

    By comparison, a metal carport, 12 ft x 21 ft, is $895 installed. They have six 30" anchors, which sound not quite as good as the cemented-in legs of the Eq-Wine shelter, and there are no channels --...

    The port of Astoria, Oregon, used these things successfully to scare away the droves of sea lions that were devouring salmon when other nonlethal means failed. Should work with poop tossers.

    Most landlords would want the riding arena removed when the tenant leaves -- unless they rent to another horse owner, they'd just have to tear it out. Add to your written agreement that you will...

    If you or your MIL are opposed to the hotwire, I agree with crosscreeksh's suggestion of welded wire, but I would make certain it is tight and clear to the ground -- you could even bury the bottom so...

    We installed hot wire top and bottom of our perimeter fence to keep our Great Pyrenees at home (the breed invariably thinks the surrounding 10,000 acres is their territory). We already had it inside...

    This sounds like conveyor belting to me.

    Two things I've heard:
    1. Slippery when wet

    My sister has one of these and I've borrowed it to clean up young blackberries and other weeds. I used only the extra heavy duty line (looks like licorice). For the right situations, it works well.
