    Yes, I do love my Rubinus filly. I am kicking myself that she's in foal right now because I would like to be riding her, but the foal she had last year was so nice I had to breed her once more. As...

    I think you might be pleasantly surprised. He was just sold to Red Wagon farm to go back to work as a dressage horse after his bout in the hunters. If you find some videos of his offspring you will...

    I like the look of Sir Gregory and he's very popular but his hind leg doesn't wow me. His foals are very attractive.
    I would look at Rubinus. He is often overlooked, he doesn't photograph well but...

    When I said no involvement with the children, I meant the 'new' partner, not the parent. I have no problem with parents dating as long as they don't introduce the dates to their children or allow it...

    I've been let down by so many Booker winners I have been hesitant to read the Narrow Road. I went on a Booker binge a few years ago and tried to read as many past winners as possible and found a...

    Interesting, I had a zeus grandson (Beach Boy) who did this exact thing. The stop and shoulder drop that dumped ammies and pros alike. It was impossible to predict or ride. Front legs up to jump,...

    This is very interesting!! My older mare's last two foals delivered in her 20's both were mildly contracted (resolved with tetracycline).

    Timely thread. I have an exceptional young horse and am considering rebreeding the mother for a full sibling. The reason I did not, initially, was because of the reasons stated above: I could not...

    I make green 'pucks' that I add to every smoothie.
    Basically I stuff as much kale, spinach and whatever other greens I have into the blender with coconut water until it blends. I also add hemp...

    I've been reading quite a bit lately and have had some good ones:

    All the Light we Cannot See - This was a good book but it felt incomplete to me. I hated the short chapter format and I think I...

    I would never, ever date someone with children unless they were grown and moved away. I think it's tacky and unethical. If people chose to have children, those children should come first until they...

    I definitely think that Adnan killed her, but that there was too much reasonable doubt for conviction.
    I think it was an accident, he lost his temper and killed her, and that it happened much later...

    In my experience the boarders who complain the most about the care are the ones that are the hardest to get rid of. It's the strangest thing, you'd think they'd be dying to go since your place is so...

    I bought some sort of fancy acrylic type cooler and won't use it for this very reason, I hate that shavings stick to it. I would rather use my wool cooler; the shavings just brush off.

    Do not underestimate the cost of ground work. Your budget will be tight, in my experience but I live in a very expensive area. Spend a LOT of time looking at your property layout and deciding...

    The EVA mats that I posted are nothing like the hard rubber mats, they have a lot of cushion, but are not lumpy like the mattresses. They do not curl, bunch or ever allow anything underneath. Some...

    After being in multiple barns with the matress systems I decided against them for my barn. I really didn't think the uneven, lumpy surface was helping the horses at all. I also didn't like that the...

    This may be of interest to some of you. I think this is a very good design since I could put the bale right into the feeder with the tractor.

    I really don't see the benefit of the net. If you have the sized round bales we get out here (12-1300lbs) getting the net on the bale takes a solid 15 minutes of swearing and pulling and tugging with...
