    Depends on your bale weight or size, really. 60lb bales, sure you can fit them all in. 120lb bales? that would be a stretch in a regular bed. I've put 24 on my F350 of that size.

    I love my Hawk--best trailer I've ever owned or used. Mine is a straight load, but if the Hawk is spacious, I'd go with a slant. Are the mangers fixed in place in the Featherlight? Too many...

    Sorry, I did use DNR as a "catch all phrase" as most people think it contains all your end of life choices. Yes, the paper in hand is the only thing that matters--all the bracelets, tats, or words...

    Oh, yes..sorry, I meant to type ON not IN!! Yes, post it on the fridge or in an obvious place. One firefighter said that one person on the crew will always ask or look for a DNR or POLST. They...

    Our local firefighters/paramedics said that a tattooed DNR is no good. They recommend and are trained to look in the kitchen/fridge for a DNR paper...great place to put it!

    Frankly, working out at the gym is no replacement for saddle time, lots of quality flat work to build your "horse muscles" before you jump. What are your lessons like? How often do you ride? Are...

    Mom and I had a long discussion when preparing her POLST orders. That is part of a DNR--it lists all the other do/do nots of end of life care.

    Mom chose no feeding tube, as she had a clear...

    I have two stalls that open onto the overhang and a sacrifice paddock, just one. I do wish I could separate the horses at times, so two or more connected paddocks might be ideal.

    Old stuff circulating from iffy sources. We've been feeding it for two years, no issues at all. There was a thread here very recently about it.

    I've had Pemco for years....no weirdness, no increases. I love them. I've tried to beat their rates, but no company has come close to them or their service. I'm happy.

    Mr. CC and I keep separate banking accounts, nothing joint. We came into our relationship (then marriage) much older than many others. We worked out a budget and bill paying division that works...
