    My hay guy delivers 40 bales (50lbs) on a long bed pickup. I moved hay recently and had no problem doing 25 bales, only a few above the edge of the bed. Just strap them down.

    We have started some cedar hedging but It takes years to grow big enough. The "front yard" (front corner) is very shielded by mature 70ft spruce trees, but that's the only part of the property that...

    Wouldn't you know, our neighbour walked by this morning and in conversation mentioned we bought our place just in the Nick of time. Apparently there's a few folks who were quite interested.

    Kathy, I think you mean "voila", not "wala" ;)

    Thanks Sharon. That actually makes me feel a bit better. It's driving me insane that the BF refuses to acknowledge we had any other option or my perceived flaws. Apparently, even though we have...

    RCMP Constable David Wynn was laid to rest this week after being shot in the head. The auxiliary (volunteer) member with him was also shot, but not critically injured.

    You are absolutely right. And I know it's fine, and I am glad we had a move in ready place to take the horses. I know how I feel is kind of silly, it's a case of having lots of blessings and just...

    Our area isn't exactly a hot market. Our tax assessment jumped, but the appraised value wouldn't have. So essentially more taxes paid on the same place. When we bought the place, it had been on...

    It would still cost us THOUSANDS in realtor fees, which we do not pay when we are relocated. I live in a town of 2000-2500 people, only a few realtors here and when we moved, we used someone from a...

    Our house is significantly larger, actually, but our property is half the size. Ours is likely more set up for horse stuff, but far less private.

    Unfortunately, we don't have the liquid cash to...

    If everything else is right and it's just a matter of how it looks, I'd say yes. Paint and landscaping can do wonders. You can always add shutters or add visual interest with a dormer roofline...
  14. What could have been (bought farm, something else came up)

    You know how you have this idealistic "dream" image of the place you want?

    When we got relocated to our little town, that dream included privacy and quiet. Unfortunately, BFs job requires him to...

    He came from a litter that was in the Yukon. I think husky litters and strays are common up there. Some of his litter mates were red and whites and fluffier. Still didn't look husky, but a few had...

    Thanks. I couldn't find anything recent myself but I don't exactly have my finger on the pulse of the dog food industry ;)

    Update:

    I ended up getting a 3 month puppy, despite deciding we would not get a puppy. Oops.

    A little VERY timid boy, just shy of 3 months. Listed at the spca as husky/border but his body and...
  18. Kirkland/costco "Natures Domain" dog food

    I know a few years ago they had a salmonella problem, but I'm seeing stuff make the rounds on FB. Is this a new problem or old stuff circulating?

    I found up here people pay by the stall often, but that doesn't help when it's turn in and turn out too.

    Years ago (circa 2001) I did the weekends at a 10 stall barn. 3-4 hours in the am and...

    Thanks - not a lick of white on her! Four white socks and a face marking would be pretty flashy, but after my pinto Im pretty stoked about easy to clean!

    She's got a massive tail and mane. I love...

    Here in BC, Sabrina Glaser's TB Aid and Abet went * and Intermediate in 2014. She started with him in 2012 at the low levels, he would have been 8 then. The details are fuzzy so I double checked her...

    OP -- I've evented two seasons up to 2'9 with my horse wearing Woof's front and back. I'd love to get some spendy fancy boots, but at $40 a pair and as easy as these are, it's hard to spend more...

    I would put money on them having another dog within the month. She was already debating just in the last few months whether to get another puppy or get pregnant again. After of course lamenting her...
