    Another heavy rain yesterday evening, so no wakeup.

    But while I was mucking the barn last evening, I heard some bird squabble. Looked up into the neighbor's yard and saw a cat scrambling across...

    I prefer to put the KY generic in, go for a ride or turn them out for a while, then go in and loosen and follow up with the hose. Much less of an ordeal to let body heat and motion work things loose.

    I started towing 2-h BP trailers in about 1969, and have done it consistently since then. I've towed with the big Chevy wagon we had back then, 1/2 ton trucks, and my previous vehicle, for 17 years,...

    We had a good rain yesterday evening, so no wakeup last night.

    Yes, we ARE fortunate to live where things like this can happen!

    I recently watched an obedience training video in which one of the dogs being schooled was a hind-leg tripod. Did not slow him down one iota, and he was doing some pretty quick stuff.

    Not sure if...

    No, that's the thing--it's the middle of the night. They start about 3 am and it doesn't start getting light here till about 5:30.


    My Girldog used to do this (she doesn't hear well enough any...

    Yup, had a coyote the other night, as well, but those concerts are relatively short, lol. I sat there for quite a while last night trying to decide if it was something other than a bird. It may be...

    Birds at night

    Totally off-the-wall:

    What the heck kind of bird stays up all night chirping? I have a maple tree outside my bedroom window and one or more birds have moved in. They wake up about 3 am and start...

    We expect horses to be 100% sound when we ask them to work. Few will go their whole life able to maintain that. An occasional ache or pain is to be expected, but if she's happy, and you are able to...

    So very sorry. Always a nightmare to go through this; alas, it is part of having them in our lives. I hope that time gives you peace, at least, but there are no shortcuts. Hang in there.

    I can vouch for this. My old barn came with a concrete lip on the stalls. Now, 20 years later, one of the lips has a chunk out of it right in the middle. Get bedding leaking out of that one all the...

    BOSS = black oil sunflower seeds

    You could consider sinking a 4x4 or 4x6 or a RR tie, and bolting the mats to that. I've done that in my barn aisle and it's held for years. Just dig a bit of...

    Interesting to follow, thanks. Part of the reason you didn't get a lot of response at first is because you did a very complete and detailed job of describing the situation and what you did about it....

    I've seen a tendency to over-tighten as a result of this (not necessarily from the horse's back), so just be careful of that.

    I thought I was the only person who tightened my cinch without getting...

    If you were in pretty bad shape before the THR, then not only do you have to recover from the surgery, but all of the support ligaments & tendons around the old hip joint need to get stretched back...

    You have to realize that the tongue weight goes against the carrying payload of your truck. So even if your hitch receiver can pull 12.5K, that doesn't mean you want to put 1.25K of tongue weight on...

    I have a 2h BP DR Hawk trailer, empty weight about 3300 lbs. I had an F250, 7.3L diesel with a 4.10 rear axle. That truck never worked a day in it's life towing that trailer, even with two horses....
