    Same here. My hay guy actually doesn't charge me anything extra, but I usually leave him a "tip" of $0.50/bale. I order 150 bales at a time, and he delivers from about 30-45 minutes away. Bales are...

    I'm on the Gulf Coast and get thunderstorms almost daily, a lot with spectacular lightning. I do not have a rod on either barn or house, and to be honest, I'm not sure about the local/state...

    Thanks all; didn't think about the gas (or acetone). I feel much safer quickly pouring liquid rather than getting close enough to puff dust into the holes.

    Does the after-dark thing still work in...

    killing yellow jacket nest

    I have a yellow jacket nest in my front yard. It's underground, and confirmed yellow jackets. Now I'm usually a "live and let live" kind of homeowner, but these monsters attacked my 6 month old puppy...

    The bolded part I disagree with. Time = money, and by boarding, you will save yourself ample amount of time. Taking my current hourly rate at work, I spend the same amount in one week fixing...

    Nope. Wouldn't do it again.
    The only reason I bought my farmette (7 acres, 3-stall barn, small pond) is because I moved to a new state, 1000 miles away from where I had been. I have 2 old Morgans...

    Giant red flag. I'd be outta there long before the meltdown actually happened. You can warn others if you feel the need to, but I don't think it's required of you.

  10. replacing diesel truck… with another (new) diesel?

    I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel whose sole job is to haul my 2 horse BP trailer (steel). I purchased it probably close to 10 years ago, used with ~85k miles, it maybe has 150k miles on it now,...

    Agree with everyone that it's the stopping power you need to be aware of.

    However, I blew out 2 cylinders on my F150 pulling a 2 horse BP (albeit steel, not aluminum), with just one horse in it,...

    I always load up and go at the first sign of trouble. Even in populated areas, I usually have ~1hr wait for a vet on an emergency call, if not more. Sometimes they have to drive from their home to...
  13. UPDATE

    Just an update.

    I recently hit the point where I can't hide it anymore and DH & I had gotten the "all looks good" from the doc, so we felt ok with revealing the info. I "unleashed" the secret and...

    As someone who has gotten stung by two paper wasps in the last 6 months, I disagree. First one stung my behind while I was emptying the water tank (nest was far above me in the eave of the barn), the...

    I've never oiled once. Sometimes I'll think to give electrolytes the night before to encourage them to drink a bit before the trip. They're offered water during the trip, but 95% of the time they...

    OP, if it makes you feel better, take the rig in for a full check-up before you go. I've done numerous ~1000-mile trips with my steel BP rig and try to take it in for maintenance before heading out....
  17. barn misters in summer: mold problems?

    I live in south-central Louisiana. It is miserably hot, and miserably humid. My horses have fans (sealed motor, rated to be used with barn sprinkler systems) that run 24/7, but that's it.

    My...

    After teaching MD & DVM students for several years, IME relationships don't last.

    That being said, I'm normally telling that to the MD/DVM student with a needy SO. Since you obviously care about...
