    Look at 18-20 foot stock trailers and see about having a few modifications made. I have a 1989 20' featherlight that was built with a 5' side ramp in the front with an escape door on the other side,...

    Very nice, but the cart looks a little small. If you look at the balance picture, the seat looks tipped back and this will only get worse when you move him further back. The shafts should be lower,...

    I am not even looking at the regular listings, I just get the teasers through facebook that are tempting enough. Maybe in a year or two I will be in a position for another, but right now I don't even...

    Just remember - all horse people are a little crazy, the only difference is the flavor :)

    So cute and your doing a great job.

    For the bolded part, make sure you teach her a specific command to move off such as "walk on" or "step up" (useful to end a reinback) maybe combined with a...

    Bold part is an important point. If they are sensible types I would just get on and ride. Being out in a hilly pasture with a friend means they are already somewhat fit. If they had been standing...

    Have you looked at TBs or Standardbreds, especially STBs would probably work well for you.

    Good point. I already take iron, but was thinking this morning some extra calcium would be a good idea. I have that and Vit D here so will plan to start taking them.

    For a litter box, get a Rubbermaid type storage container and cut access holes where you want them. This keeps litter mostly confined and prevents overspray.

    I would find a way to separate them when you aren't around. The cats either won't care or be relieved they aren't being attacked. IME cats mostly sleep all day anyway so as long as everybody has...

    I KNOW about non-unions. My collarbone was in 2 pieces for 6 months before I had surgery. That was over 2 years ago and it is doing great. This is why when the surgeon recommended surgery on the arm...
