    I would suggest a light color over dark colors, they actually don't show the dirt as badly as the dark will. Think black cars, you can TELL when they have been washed and when they need to be...

    Just know that if you go the composting route, that ground drive spreader won't work for putting fresh manure into a pile. That is a PTO spreader job.

    I do not compost because my fields need the...

    I guess I would have a blanket that fits her on hand, but not use it unless she is shivering or acting "off" in the cold. We have brought horses "up North here" from warm places and they did just...

    Our old girl was quite happy with her Mio Rainsheet last winter as a wind stopper. She had plenty of hair, but is a bit light in the fat department, so this waterproof covering did a great job of...

    If you want ground drive, get it. If you don't like it later, you can get a spreader with a PTO and sell the other one. You are NOT married to the spreader!

    I have good luck with turning the...

    It can be hard enough to match equines with gait and similar sizes, so getting the color perfect is your LAST worry! Judges wouldn't penalize you for not having color matching in CDE. Pleasure...

    Much will depend on your physical location in the USA. What works for some places is useless for others. I am in MI, which has so many (normally) cloudy days, that solar power is pretty ineffective...

    Ground driven spreader has a lever to throw, to engage the gearing for spreading. You can turn them off, to reach the location you want to spread on, then engage the gears to make the chain dump as...

    Having owned both types, I would choose the PTO over ground driven anytime.

    With the PTO you can unload the spreader anyplace. If you can't get out back in ice or snow, you may just have to make...

    The bigger the breed, the longer it takes for that horse to finish growing. Though after 4 years MOST have their almost adult height, they CAN still put on a few inches and lots of body depth. That...

    Make sure the blades are seated correctly, so the clippers can move the top one to cut. I have done that a couple times, not getting blades seated correctly to allow pushing to occur.

    Well, we are into driving horses, and have not heard of any "special" leather or other material in harness that prevent lathering.

    We condition our Driving horses to compete in Combined Driving. ...

    Ask what her plans are for when she takes out the rear window? I have seen and heard that just with the horse trailer folks using short bed trucks.

    If she must have the light truck, she should...

    This is a weird idea, but might a spray hair coloring, also color the skin, preventing the sun from reaching it? You could try for a matching color to his coat, going for a blend of color, not a...

    And for some reason, the legal system in South Africa has the Judge deciding the guilty or not guilty in this case. So everyone talking, had to make that Judge believe their idea, reasoning, to get...

    I figure it is best not to "tempt" people by leaving stuff to be easily stolen. Truck bed is just a big open box, easy to take stuff out of. So if it is worth anything, that item NEEDS to be put in...
