    Allow me to type an update in between happy dances. Today I was finally allowed to give them money and take my tractor home.

    Sometimes I think how hard it would have been to work a farm...

    I've been doing more of my own, but I don't really want to. By the time I disassemble, then wait for parts, then find time to reassemble I create significant downtime too. It went to a shop this...
  3. Is it really hard to get competent service for a small tractor?

    I have a 30hp compact utility tractor. I've had a really bad run of experiences getting it serviced and repaired.

    I'm currently getting the run around from one of the local John Deere dealers. ...

    You might as well order the part and look at it. I'd expect it to be welded on, so you'd want a welder good with aluminium to do it. A welding or metal fabrication shop might be a better bet than a...

    I think you've had your answer, but also, unlike trail riding, the drinks foxhunters carry are mostly not very hydrating.

    Somebody would make you a 2h straight load with removable divider and chest bars and a 2nd spot to fit the divider and chest bars so you could install them backwards.

    A 2h straight load is only...

    For a less clunky solution you could get 4" or 6" legs fabricated onto the underside of the ramp near the top/back edge so that there is a small step up onto the ramp and the slope is reduced.

    They don't have smooth soles though, which was the original reason for needing new boots.

    The whole anti horse movement relies on 21st Century people being totally unfamiliar with horses. Imagine if you were trying the same argument about city dogs.

    Finding them in stock to try on might be tough but plenty of people make them if you are happy to mail order

    Everybody uses shavings at different rates so how long it lasts others is probably not that useful.

    You are using about 3 bags of shavings per horse per month?

    I think you might have cranked your tinfoil hat up a little tight today, but even if that were true what good does it do if the car dealer you are talking to is using their cell phone?

    I can no longer tell which people in the hauling threads are being serious, and which people are being deliberately hyperbolic to make a point about how crazy people get when talking about trailers.

    For a lesson program? Wintecs all the way. A saddle that copes with abuse and can be hosed off once a month works really well. I'd get used Wintecs if you can find them easily and spend the money...

    Mowing, repairing broken infrastructure (plumbing, fencing, lights), servicing/repairing broken equipment (mowers, tractors), weed-whacking. Probably in that order.

    I think that's exactly it. Head to head trailers are fairly large and expensive, so there are not that many of them on the road and it takes a long time for a trailer to depreciate 50% of its new...

    I don't understand why basic care is optional at that barn.

    If a horse is in a stall it needs bedding. "We provide bedding at $x per whatever or you can provide your own" seems reasonable. ...

    Most of the dedicated arena rakes have more than one row of ground contacting tools, so they break it up with bigger teeth first, then run a comb or roller at the back to smooth it back down. So...

    I'd sell them. Unless you already have a cobbler you trust it's pretty hard to tell what the quality will be until it is too late. Once you cut them up and alter them they become worthless to...

    How firm is your arena? If the truck can drive into or next to the arena dragging them seems like a good plan. If you need to drag them for a mile down a jagged track they are going to split.
