    Do a quick and dirty search on individual horses on Dreamhorse, WarmbloodsforSale, etc. Is horse being bought "as is" or will there be a PPE? If I were leasing the horse, then I assume that it has...

    Grew up with septic and have a farm with a septic. Of course you can flush TP! You do not flush anything else. It's pretty darn simple. I would insist the septic is pumped out and inspected...

    If the jobs were closer in compensation, I would take job #2. However, a big differential would make me take job #1 and find a way to really like it.

    As a seller, I agree that it is important to be upfront if you can't afford the full asking price on a horse. I take consignments, so I know how much wiggle room the owner has. I know the market for...

    Separate the house rental from the horse work. Get a lease for the house that is not contingent on anything related to the horses. Write up your horse deal as a separate agreement. Do get...

    To my knowledge, Winding Down does not take consignments. She uses Kurt Martin and Sharon White to sell her horses IIRC.

    The only person who can change her situation is your sister. I know horse professionals and they manage to work hard and have a life.

    I would check with a lawyer asap. If you are going to allege negligence or fraud, there is going to be a statute of limitations. Typically it starts running from the moment you discover the...

    ^This.

    The issues really are not about horses; any job that requires 16 hours of work a day would be a problem.

    Lots of work, but rewarding if you love it. Mr. IF and I have been at is since 1998 and while there are times we questions our sanity, we love the property. We look forward to retiring from our day...

    I guess I wouldn't be too concerned about the amount of money I could make flipping horses. Sales aren't that good that I have a tax problem with my sales. In fact, I would love to have a problem...

    I never understood why Manfred Mann changed Springsteen's lyrics. It was "cut loose like a deuce" which had internal rhyme and made sense. I have no idea where the wrapping up came from. May...

    I am surprised that the OP believes that the check is in the mail. That has to be one of the oldest lines in the book.

    He wasn't kidding and you do have a plow horse. So do I! My plow horse is a light draft who has won divisions of USEA HTs, won dressage competitions, won driving competitions and won log pulls. So...

    I am not a fan of self-care for the reasons in the OP's post, but it can work. I completely agree with raising fees considerably for folks who can't get with the program. $1 is too little. I would...

    I am so disappointed that this is all she does! I really think she is on to something here if she would just let dressage inform her. A passage would be really nice and may be she would wave her...

    This is an excellent way to buy a horse. It's so simple! I wish more of my buyers would just text and pay.

    Wow, I didn't know about prancercise! I may have to add this to my riding lessons; the kids can ride, then the moms and dads can prancercise! My only question is: does she do anything else other...

    I have used them for the last 14 years for coast to coast transport. In fact, a buyer will likely be using them for a horse going to the west coast based on my recommendation. I consider all horse...

    Buried tanks are indeed a different kettle of fish. This spring we had to remove our in-ground oil tank......$2500 because it is hazmat and we could only use a licensed specialist to do it.

    Whatever you do, check with your insurance company first. We found that we could not get fire insurance coverage with a wood burning stove given our location (distant from a fire station). I'm fine...

    The IRS says that an intern should be gaining more from the internship than the employer offering it. An intern is not a substitute for paid labor. It seems to me that the OP is gaining something...
