  1. prices for training; ground work vs. riding vs. more advanced training?

    Do you expect different prices (from same trainer) for 30-days' worth of training depending on what is being done with the horse?

    I'm planning to send my horse for training for several months and...

    If you're looking for monitoring systems, I echo those who said contact a company. However, I don't have a monitoring system in my barn. It wouldn't do me any good if I & DH are at work when a fire...

    If it's the same sale they had last year, the "coupons" are literally on the bags. And, if you get a particularly unobservant TSC employee checking you out, you can get buy 1, get 4 free. :)

    definition of "private" farm/stable?

    What is the going definition for a "private farm/barn/stable"? I thought it was a place that did not accept outside boarders or clients, meaning it was just a family & close friends.

    But as I'm...

    Thanks; Lake Charles is definitely too far. I'm willing to send the horse to Lafayette, which is about halfway between BTR & Lake Charles, but not much further west. I'd like to be able to go visit...

    I only use betadine in a surgical setting.
    For everything else, diluted chlorohexadine is the way to go. Way less aggravating.

    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...

    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.
