    I have some steep slopes that I bushhog with a smallish tractor. I had a dozer guy make some cuts across the face of the slope, I go up the cuts (like almost flat, narrow roadways) and turn and go...

    It's not one of the Herriot books. I've read those so many times I'm sure I'd recognize at least one of those stories if it were in them, and I don't recognize any of those.

    Oh, horrors. The AECs, on what will essentially be a virgin course, designed by Phillips? I am SO glad I'm too old for this!

    input on 5-point breastplates

    I've got a rather ectomorphic appendix-type (but probably grade) gelding on whom his custom-fit saddle tends to slip toward the back. He's in good flesh, just isn't a fatty and his muscles are not at...

    Thoughts on a lameness??

    I have an older, stock-breed gelding of indeterminate background; probably late teens-early 20s. Not particularly troublesome conformation, shorter pasterns, somewhat upright, but not glaring. Not a...

    LOL, I've soaked them for 8 hours and still have the top ones hard and dry on the inside! That's starting with a mono-layer and covering almost twice as deep with water. Warm water does help. I'm not...
