    Excellent film. It's a fine demonstration of what can be done with a good horse, a good rider, and good training.

    They dissolve nicely in soda pop. Several years ago we had to dose our stallion and knew that he would kill for orange flavored stuff. Orange slices were one thing he really loved. So we tried...

    East TN gets 45 inches of rain per year. Not only must a "solar farm" account for runoff they must also consider what rain produces: vegetation growth. I don't think CA has kudzu. We do. It can...

    Oh, you mean a "soddy?" They were used on the Great Plains for decades by pioneer families. I don't see any reason why they could not be "upgraded" for modern use.

    For my money the better alternative technology for places without lots of high intensity direct sunlight is geothermal.

    I understand the difference between "green" motivations (money vs. environmental impact). If a body wants to do this for profit it's likely they'll be disappointed in many areas of the U.S. If the...

    You can kind of get the "lay of the land" by noting which option the vendor is pushing. If they are pushing "purchase" that's where they will make the most money. Ditto for leasing. In neither...

    Over the years we've used corn, soy, canola, and plain vegetable oil. It's a great way to add calories without adding bulk. It also seems to improve coat quality. Very few horses refuse it.
