    It can depend on the Gooseneck and or when it was made. The “post” in most newer Goosenecks especially smaller ones is mounted closers to the “nose”. Manufacturers starting changing the post position...

    That’s not the “standard” for the industry. Generally it is written; Age, then number of starts, and placing for that year. So it usually reads for example, age 3, 9 starts, 0 wins, 0 2nd, 1- 3rd.....

    Thanks for posting. Makes for interesting and educational reading. What’s nice about this one is it is easy to read and understand. It’s not written using a bunch of “legal mumbo jumbo”. Having been...

    Fixed cost, i.e. feed, hay, bedding, labor, insurance and utilities are pretty much the same in most parts of the country. Hay prices can vary greatly depending on location. The size and scope of the...

    I have not used these, but booked marked the page, thanks. Obviously the “wide” head adds significant holding power. But IME I have not found a reason to use a 3 ½” screw on a 1” (4 quarter) board...

    Type of and availability of material cost can vary depending on geographic location. Here in SE PA, PA in general Oak is plentiful. The mid-Atlantic area also has lots of horse farms. So there is...

    I find these sort of threads interesting. But IMO it would more interesting and educational if people would include what they paid for board. Self-care, field, full board “soup to nuts”. And the...

    I don’t get into, argue, dispute, debate, advise and rarely comment on feeding. IMO it is way too subjective. IMO a lot of comments, not necessarily in this thread but in general, and or advice seems...

    I only use cement on gate posts and posts that can’t be set at least 2 feet deep due to rocks. A 5 acre paddock requires around 250 posts spaced at 8’. That’s a lot of cement and extra work.

    The problem with round posts is the board has no “surface area” to be held “fast” to. Just where it is nailed/screwed. So there is there is little to no “contact” surface area which allows the boards...

    Looks like a nice place. Nothing beats a water view. Thought about upgrading to post pictures easily. But they are not much bigger then "thumb nails". Hard to see any detail.

    I’m a fencing snob also. I don’t care if I have to do some R&M from time to time. “Low and or maintenance free” used with farm is an oxymoron IMO. To me using plastic on a farm is the same as using...

    No, meaning no regrets what so ever. But this comes with a caveat meaning it all depends on available materials and the quality of installation. If you can’t get ANYTHING but oak for the boards don’t...

    Most of what you have written is true or close enough as is mine. As I said “some people refer”. “Pee burn” is completely different then what I was talking about and that should have been obvious....

    I assuming we are talking about straw muck out? Shaving does not make for very good compost, its wood. Wood needs nitrogen which is a major part of its decomposition process. Which is why it is not...

    You can believe what you want to believe but there is no bases in fact that people who smoke are more irresponsible for their actions then those that don’t.

    I can think of a lot better things to "shoot" people for. A pretty redneck statement IMO

    Wow, some of the comments IMO show just what’s wrong with so many people’s attitude toward others these days. There is a saying that has been around for many years, “you can’t tell a book by its...

    Have had several wells drilled on several different properties in a couple of different states. All rural and or mountain properties. The last one being on this farm. The various health departments...

    OP if I read your post carefully to begin with instead of thinking your system was set up like Tom Kings I would have advised you exactly what is wrong. Saved myself a lot of typing and thinking. ...

    I believe that is what I said in my post 37. But it would be far easier to install on the pump line side of the hydrant then to pull the pump line off the coupling which requires a T handle long...

    As explained to me by a Master plumber, well systems that are set up with only one check valve at the pump can and will cause premature pump failure. Especially on systems where the pressure switch...

    Payload generally means the weight that can be carried in the vehicle, what the suspension is designed for. Towing capacity is a different number. A properly designed/balanced trailer is going to put...

    I would go with this, plenty light enough for the average person. About the same as a small sq hay bale. Install a threaded PVC gate valve (around $5) in the outlet. Install a treaded coupling on...

    This is what I am thinking. But there should be pretty good “back pressure” still on the line between the pump, which my case has its own check valve also and the check valve on the inlet side of the...
