    Horses' digestion was developed to work with continual grazing. So it is possible for stomach acid to start eating away after 4 hours or so (did a lot of research years ago, someone correct me if...

    I would absolutely recommend Ulcergard/Gastrogard for the actual treatment. Yes, it costs more, but it's also FDA approved to treat ulcers. Just my two cents.

    Treat for pinworms. Won't hurt...

    If this were my horse I would do 24x7 turnout and a course of Gastrogard (I'd treat for at least a week to see if there is a change instead of scoping, but only because that means a 10 hour drive for...

    I got to use a friend's horse one evening to do some team penning. It was SO MUCH FUN.

    My (WB) mare saw a Holstein calf for the first time at the trainer's and tried to commit suicide by...

    I can rent the Dingo for five weekends for the cost of paying for those 50 holes (40 line, 9 brace posts left and 1 gate post). Not that I have five weekends to do this. If I remember correctly they...

    Toro Dingo for fencing?

    Wow. :( We rented a ground hog auger (hydraulic step up from a two man) http://www.ajrentalinc.com/cgi-bin/catalog.cgi?id=120-0605 and had the WORST time this weekend. Only 6 posts got installed...
  9. Who has wooden gates on their horse fence?

    I'd like to construct some of my gates out of wood. I remember Tom King mentioned his are homemade. Looking for design ideas, dimensions, lumber thoughts, any issues (weight, reinforcement, etc.),...

    No that's helpful, thanks!

    So if you do a box over the charger, are people having the plug in there or somewhere exposed outside? I'm a little confused on that one. I assume it is better if it...

    What size post did you go with? Did you cement? That is fabulous! Thank you for the pictures!!

    So I'm not having trouble picturing the buckets upside down, but I am having mental image trouble with the tackle box, and rubbermade stuff. I think it sounds good, hence the additional questions. ...
  13. Building a shelter for your AC fence charger...anyone have one outside?

    Just looking for any "do's" or "don'ts" on this. I don't have a building nearby and will need to build a shelter over my AC fence charger. I was picturing just a simple slant roof, boxed in...

    It's hard to get mad at a neighbor who lets their chickens free range, when you do too. I feel your pain, don't get me wrong, but are you 100% certain your chickens have never crossed the road?

    $50 a day plus food in the fridge to eat.

    I should add that I have two dogs and two cats. Only one of the dogs really needs any level of exercise though.

    Oh and I have three hens too. They...

    I get frustrated riding once or twice a week because I feel like I am having the same lesson over and over again. I get really frustrated when I want to be jumping, because (my personal opinion) is...
  22. Some specific broodmare lease questions

    My questions are probably more prevalent if the lease is off-site:

    1) What happens if the mare doesn't get pregnant--is the person leasing her still on the hook for her care and for how long? Do...
