    To suggest that because a boarding operation carries top notch insurance is a “red flag” meaning they may not be competent and or the potential client maybe a potential PITA is a bit silly IMO. It...

    I am sorry but this is not correct. It serves both the BO and Boarder equally by and large. Which I tried to explain in my lengthy post below.

    We are a boarding operation but no so much for “pleasure” horse owners. Ours is a TB, breeding, raising, breaking, training, re-hab, re-school, lay up and R &R. Regardless of the orientation of an...

    PTO. The “throwing power/distance” is set by engine speed not ground speed. Once you get comfortable and “know” the equipment there is no guess work involved. You will figure out engine speed and...

    What would you expect to pay for this sort of service? It’s a lot more time consuming and involved for a trainer then a horse sent in for “ring work”. A lot more as in all day with early mornings. ...

    While the reasons horses colic can be many. And I don’t entirely disagree with “The most common reason is poor management” there is just too much data/statistics to back up what others are saying...

    Always, feel naked without them. Yes, just about every track has monitors everywhere these days, some a jumbo. But it is not “up and personal” like watching with a good set of binoculars. If one of...

    Ringmasters, pretty much the "go to". Know lots of people who have used them. Had them out to give me some numbers to re-hap and or enlarge. John gave me realistic numbers. And I know a lot about...

    For those that are not familiar with TB auctions conducted by the “majors”. Every horse will say “sold” on the bid board whether it sold or not. The results are...

    We are on a well, one of two on our farm. Water from one of the wells being a deep one has a very high iron content. I spoke to several vets in the “know” about these things. Both said horses,...

    Do you have a local dump? Ours has a compost section. I don’t think they charge much if anything for organic material like leaves and such. There might be a commercial mulch business and or...

    Pretty much the same as when playing golf. Even if you have a tendency to hook and or slice when teeing off you still set up with your shoulders in the directions you should be hitting to.

    Cob webs drive me nuts. We have a very old bank barn with many generations of spiders. As other have said, Shop-vac. We have a pretty big one and I bought an extra length of hose and a “painters”...

    When people ask me what would be the number one thing, a must have when building a barn from scratch. Without a doubt auto wateriers....
