    Yes, you could put a halter plate on it without a problem. From a short distance, you wouldn't know it's not leather. Comes feeling like butter soft, well oiled leather and doesn't get stiff in...

    I'm admittedly a noise maker.... Not a constant one but I catch myself doing it impulsively. I don't know why it happens. There is no thought or obvious trigger other than having a boring or...

    I would take this rooster and any extra zucchini anyone has laying around. I'd eat them both. Possibly in the same dish.

    I was going to say no more than $7,500-8,000 without knowing more. A few years ago a 19 year old schoolmaster gelding sold near me for $7,500. He too was a fancy imported warmblood who needed an...

    Well, I did make some progress last night. I asked how much they were paying to the outgoing barn manager for bedding (she did the ordering and billed them for it). They told me $30. I told them...

    Honestly, I'd feed her out of my own grain stores and say nothing - growing more resentful and bitter for each day my finances are being impacted by their stupidity.

    Woah, woah, woah...

    They type of boarding this barn offers is basically dry stall + labor. The owners provide hay, grain, bedding and any supplements and care is dictated by them. It's not my...

    Nope. The mats are treated to let liquids though but not back up. We actually "flooded" one stall for a horse that had laminitis. It was like she was walking on a waterbed and having a cool floor...

    I recommend stall skins over the gravel. Pee goes right through and can't come back up. I've used stall skins for more than 10 years and love them!

    I know!!! She had it listed for $3,300 but I told her I had $2,500 cash on hand and she agreed to take it. She had moved to South Carolina and gotten out of horses. Her son had used the trailer to...

    The problem with older trailers is that many of them are steel and HEAVY. Many of the older ones aren't very tall or long and larger horses have a hard time being comfortable in them. For safety...

    I once had a barn owner tell me that she could put a lien on my horse at any time for any reason and refuse me access to it at any time per the boarding contract I signed.

    Yeah, I've seen that dappled buckskin in Welsh breedings and was thinking of Rosmels when I saw her. I think the chances that you have a rare/endangered breed such as the Marsh Tacky are pretty slim...
