    OP (and Amaranch), many people ask your question about ground drive vs. PTO manure spreaders. They also ask what size spreader they need, what type, what options are available, etc. To help answer...

    I was at the Region 5 Final. Smaller group than I've seen in years past, and a testing first round course that resulted in a LOT of refusals. At one point there was a consecutive string of four or...

    I agree that George + Downton = My Idea of Heaven :)

    What I read is that he will be in a special one-off somewhat comedic "sketch," with unknown Downton cast members, that will air during a...

    Hahaha! Put your stories together and you've got one from when I was working as a vet assistant. I was only 16, and very sheltered/gullible, so the older guy assistant LOVED teasing me. One day I...

    You might want to have that checked out. Someone has mentioned pilonidal cysts; those are always at the end of the tailbone, which sounds like where your mystery bump is located. Not the same thing...

    I've fed Kirkland for years now. Doggie (11-yr-old Springer bitch) used to get Adult Chicken Premium. Then they got in the Salmon kind (I believe it's the same stuff as "Taste of the Wild" brand) so...

    Well, darn it, up until 6 mo. ago I wouldn't have known a skinny snake if it, well, bit me, but now I can tell that those poor things aren't right! I wonder how come they're that way? Incompetent...

    Wonderful, thought-provoking book and movie. I was particularly interested in it because my family actually had "help" at one time, many years ago. I was born in Daytona Beach, FL in the 60s and...

    What a cool thread! I have only ever been around two stallions on a regular basis, a Paint and a TB. Both were extremely well-mannered boys, who lived right next to mares and geldings in the barn and...

    I am the proud mom of a wonderful 11.5 y.o. L/W English Springer girl. Up until this spring she has always grown a humongous amount of hair - thick and...

    I'm glad you posted a snake thread because now I can talk about "mine!" She's actually my son's pet, but he has gone off to college (actually a U.S. Service Academy, so he's REALLY gone) and now his...

    OP, I'm sorry you are so disappointed with your new ABI manure spreader. Rusting that quickly, especially when you've been doing proper maintenance, is not acceptable. Neither is failure of the...

    Great thread! I've got one that nobody else has mentioned, but I'll never forget it. Homefront was a simply terrific drama about folks in a small town in OH during WWII. It ran 1991-1993 and starred...
