    ?? Not sure what you mean -- by "120-mph wind rated", it means it won't blow away OR apart. Both structures (shelter and hay 'shed') are anchored with the big auger-ended mobile home anchors. That...

    Forgot one: "I volunteer at events so they are possible to ride in."

    Mine itched his face a LOT, was just fussy in the bridle, did not readily seek contact -- but it was a subtle thing that you see when you have a relationship with a horse. The change was subtle too,...

    I do agree with DC and JER, I also agree with this statement -- but as I'm sure you well know, there ARE riders/trainers who fit this very description. No, I am not thinking of anyone in particular,...

    If your garage doors are usually closed and there is good airflow, could they be garage kitties? If not, you might be surprised by them enjoying the house, particularly as they get older. They...

    Ahhhh, that's why a recent Craigslist ad I found for a donkey just said, "donkey for sale. good personality, good with horses, just don't like goats." I confess I LOL'd, but I guess it makes sense...

    Agree on either angry donkey or keep them up at night. Just had a deer (ours are small and it was in deep mud, probably slow, young, stupid, or hurt) devoured (only its tail is left!) in one of my...

    BWHAHAHAHA! Truer words were never spoken! I consider it a weird sort of blessing that after we own horses for a while, we are trained to just write checks and hand them over with a sigh.

    Oh, here, I can make it easier -- this is a screen cap of my shed comparison shopping once I narrowed down the types I wanted. I'm a visual person, ROFL.

    Nah, it's no different from being in a barn, they don't care if they want to be dry or in the shade. If you have something so crazy-flighty about that for some reason, well, perfect chance for...

    Poltroon commented on some of the most important stuff. If you have the money, it can be very exciting to design and build things -- but I have 10 beautiful acres of awesome pasture and only two...

    Hyena! LOL. No, I have folks tell me they see all kinds of crazy things, but 99.9% = dog. The Carolina Ditch Dog comes in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and colours.

    Definitely should REDUCE poll pressure, don't crank that nose strap down like a improper flash. It's a bit stabilizer, not a nose prison.

    And I 100% agree, it's like every other tool -- I think...

    Don't feel bad, I AM on FB and can't comment either. There was one brief 2-day period when it worked and I emailed Jenni back and forth about it a bit, but as an occasional reader, I just gave up. ...

    It's all relative. Life has taught me many lessons as I creep up towards 40 (omg).

    I would have ripped off both my arms to even HAVE a horse as a kid. I didn't. However, as a result, I...

    I did a massive spreadsheet when building my run-in of every option. Massive, LOL. Everything from build it myself to order a kit to fill in with wood to all built on site. I also talked to my...

    Well played, PM, well played!



    And yes, I totally agree, riderboy, sorry if it came out otherwise at the end of the day. I'm not too proud to admit that I do get worn down by it all sometimes,...
