    We have a baby swing for our grandaughter in the barn. Works like a charm. Baby can see us from a safe spot and snooze when she's tired. She's high enough off the ground that the dogs and cats leave...

    Our guy was 37 when we put him down. He slipped in the mud and couldn't get traction to get back up. We had freezing rain coming overnight and could leave him to suffer in the rain. He had no teeth...

    If it's not broke, don't fix it. If your horse looks good on it, don't change anything due to popularity of the product.

    I think I would try one and if you liked it add a few more. We use a Headlamp for a few outdoor chores after dark but I don't like them when DH turns and looks at me and I'm blinded by it. I can't...

    It's likely the mare gave warning signs that all was not well. I feel it is my responsibility to my horse to keep a safe distance from another horses heels. Sometimes you need to tie your horse and...

    Ours are Ritchie brand. I think they used to make them to last instead of cheap throw away made things today.

    Sorry your saddle got stolen, your truck too. We leave the keys in our Ford hoping it will be gone in the morning. No such luck..... There probably isn't a thief that can get ours started. I really...

    Oh no, leave them in. Ours are only a problem when it's 10 below and with gale force west winds. Ours newest one is probably 40 years old. It's really only a problem a few times some years, some...

    Our 15 year old dog passed away peacefully last January and burying him on the farm was not an option at the time (Remember polar vortex's?). We wrapped him in a tarp and buried him in a snow drift...

    Yes. Pour the hot water over the supply pipes under the waterer. The spilled water will go down in the hole that the pipes come up or on the ground underneath. Be careful of any electrical wires...

    There is a chance that the water lines are froze above the ground but under the trough. We use gallons of hot water to pour on the pipe underneath. Ours has a favorite bend in the pipe where it...

    I'm not sure if that is the kind of heat I would want for stall use. My experience with it is that it warms up an object, and then when it shuts off, it's cold. Warm, cold, warm, cold might not be...

    He was there 15 minutes and claimed he was already late for his next appointment. He didn't have any intentions of staying for the time required to make good recommendations. Consider yourself lucky...

    I would give her a week to have a vet out. If the behavior can't be fixed by the vet then the horse needs to go before you lose your other borders. I wouldn't board anywhere that I was at risk by...

    Around here it doesn't seem like there is a "sale" season. My husband will buy a new tractor any time. Keep an eye on Tractorhouse .com for possible deals.

    Some power companies but the extra power from you. Some run the meter "backwards" and others, like our power company, charge the same as usual (.12 a kw) and would credit us a wholesale amount (.04 a...

    If they take good care of your horses when you are not home you may want to overlook the poop issues. I'm sure it's annoying but to have someone right next door to take care of your horses when you...
