    Wheelbarrow handles are made of "hardened wood". OP will be too old to care by the time she "rasps" the handles down to size!!! Electric grinder will be much faster!!

    I wrapped the handles of all my wheelbarrows, pitch forks, rakes. and assorted tools with a layer of heavy weight duct tape...Don't try to make it smooth...the wrinkles are what makes them grippy!! ...

    My dogs are with me when I'm doing farm work, chores, feeding...but NEVER when I am working/riding/lunging a horse. I like my dogs and my horses too well to get either hurt!!

    Oklahoma is pretty reasonable with hay prices. My neighbor..a hay grower/dealer sells some very nice round bales (1200 lb. net wrapped) for as little as $20 in the season...$40 in the winter. When...

    Some horses like different brands. One of my old horses liked one brand...refused another. Because cubes are "hay based" I'm sure there is a difference in flavor.

    THAT is a rather uncalled for, unsolicited, snarky comment. As a matter of fact, we have been breeding sport horses and painted TB's for 20 to 30 years. Our foundation stallion was Puchi's Rambo,...

    So sorry for the tragic loss of your llama. My observation of GP's after owning one for almost 10 years....They "see" things/animals differently than some other dogs. It could have been a odd move...

    Bringing a new puppy into the home/pack is SO MUCH easier if you have a good role model!! If the old dog is still healthy and happy it should go well. If the old dog is getting "over the hill" and...

    I think a draft stallion on a WB mare, just to improve her disposition is going too far afield!! They say breed "like to like" /"type to type". I don't think the draft will offer any improvement on...
