    How is that different than living alone on a farm?

    I've had to open restaurant/bars alone before others get there--would that be illegal there? This is fascinating! What if you are the morning...

    I get why you are uncomfortable, it's new and intrusive on some level, but as a property owner I think it is a great idea. Especially since the BO doesn't live there! As long as it is limited to...

    Thinking about you this morning Simkie as I walked through the 41 degree rain to the paddock. What a cesspool (my whole farm, not necessarily just the horse area). 2 days of rain again on top of...

    So canola oil is better than vegetable oil? This is interesting as I am about out. I just buy it by the gallon at Walmart.

    I never bothered when I boarded, but have been doing a glug on top of...

    The issue is when they are late with providing it. Do you let the horse go hungry? It's one thing to skip a grain meal, but another if they run out of hay. Also, how do you store everyone's hay...

    Ignore the baby! Cute baby!

    Do you anticipate having to do a retaining wall on the side you are building up?

    That could get you in trouble! ;) For example, I have 4 views of just one of my horse's ankles. And of course you only see the big bone chip in the last one. Flexes 100% sound. :) But you can see...

    I am fascinated by this topic. Post away. Everyone should post pictures. I have a high area I really want to get going on next year, but I'm afraid it drops off too much and even though it "seems"...

    ayrabz, Mine still eat dormant grasses when the ground is frozen hard... So I am only giving them full turnout every few days in the afternoon as a treat. They will eat it to the dirt, even with...

    Emily,

    I think I get your situation better now. Most people around here can't afford to do anything else either. They do a compacted clay (natural) base and then sand on top. Some drag a bit of...

    Simkie raises a good point. I LOVE how easy my set-up is for horsekeeping. Chores take only a few minutes during the week. I'm usually shielded completely from the wind (unless it is from the...

    Re: the landfill location

    1) Will your place reek when the wind changes direction?
    2) Will you have heavy truck traffic going by all the time?
    3) Will garbage be blown towards your place? There...

    If the rubber isn't integrated doesn't it just float away when it rains? I thought you HAD to mix in whatever additives you do with sand...

    Won't it get super deep if you add another top layer?

    All of my other exterior fencing is 5 foot tall, but it is a combination of 3 strands coated wire and 2 tape. My interior fencing is three strands of Horseguard on 4" round wood posts. I wonder if...

    That's a good plan. You could just do geotextile/gravel by the gate and the water/feed area. Preferably this (gate area) is at the best drainage location anyway. Why I'm posting is it made me...

    Because if you have a budget, changing grade, removing the top soil, putting down geotextile and then gravel is expensive? It's basically like building an arena without the sand...I just assumed...

    Sunny = cold

    warm almost always means cloudy (clouds trap the heat).

    Last winter was bitterly, bitterly, bitterly, bitterly, bitterly, horribly (I could go on) cold--but sunny. I'll take 55...
