    I'm wearing a pair of the middleburgs right now. Love them. For the price they are not bad. NO break in time at all. Run super small though. I ordered a whole size down.

    I'm sorry to hear about your pigs ear problem. I have several pet pigs here on my horse farm. My closest vet is 3 hours away (that does not recommend cooking the pig to solve every health issue) so I...

    The short answer is YES adding stalls ads value and...

    I would personally pay more to have my horses NOT on concrete. If you were building a barn any barn builder (worth his weight) would tell you why it's bad for horses to stand on it.

    The leather on the voltaire felt thing and flimsy even compared to my Antares Calf Skin Saddle.

    I felt like I wouldn't get more than a year out of it. I guess it depends on how much you ride.

    I agree. I don't know any "good horses" that could even be kept alive, let alone in a training program, to be ready for lessons for you for the prices the OP is seeking.

    Thank you! I have been saying this for years and it's true a 50 acre horse farm will cost the town and county less than 50 houses with 2.5 kids going to school at $13,000 drain to tax payer per...

    Agreed

    I agree with this. With the cost of hay, shavings and property taxes a place with a nice indoor starts close to $1,000.

    I charge $950 at my barn for year round boarders and $1,250 for winter only...

    Remember 36' Wide barns will not give you true 12 X 12 Stalls. Most of them end up (if you're lucky) being 11'5" X 11'5" and a 11'8" aisle.

    It's a pet peeve of mine that you may not mind but that...

    I think this is part of the problem. If I were you, I would be asking yourself "Why is your trainer having you jump a 3'6" course if you haven't mastered your hands yet?"

    No problem. I used a big roller for the boards and a brush and smaller rollers for all the in betweens and the posts.

    I will probably do the same when we stain the run-in sheds this spring.

    Thank Goodness most of the fencing was painted before I purchased this farm. The new fencing we have put up we used Cabot stain but since found cheaper alternatives.

    My husband and I were able to build beautiful run in sheds ourselves for less than $1500 a piece. These sheds would have cost us over $5,000 each if we had pre-fab sheds brought in.
