    Definitely prefer an undermount sink. So much easier, and cleaner, than a vessel or a drop-in sink with the lip above the countertop.

    I rode in an ladies drill and parade team for several years. That was a lot of fun, and a ton of work.

    I trail ride.

    Have lately done some Ranch Horse Pleasure, which are fun patterns that...

    Yes, I'm bummed that it was cancelled. I tell you, it's the kiss of death if I like a show..cancellation is almost inevitable, it seems.

    There's hope some other network will pick it up. Hope so.

    Thanks guys..I just ordered WRK4HAY for my horse trailer. I've always wanted horsey plates for my trailer but never got around to it.

    I may do my truck, too.

    I totally understand! People always think I'm nuts, my husband included, because I say on my birthday I want the whole day to putter around the barn with my horses. My idea of heaven is to bathe...

    A two horse bp trailer that's a slant load with an escape door for the front stall will give you access to both horses. If you've got a big WB horse, though, a straight load is probably what you...

    I love a horse with a big ole head like that. It's because my favorite horse had one, too, and to me it's a sign of character.

    Keep going. Enjoy him. You'll learn a lot from him, I'm sure.

    I went to see her show in Lake Tahoe in 1984. I'll never forget her performance, not because she was funny (she was) but because of one interaction between her and a member of the audience.

    I have a single metal container planted with petunias at the front of my barn. That's it. Not very imaginative but easy to maintain. Everything else is gravel, and keeping control of the weeds is a...

    I'm like you, completely NONmechanical (is that a word?) and I bought the Kubota just because the dealer was the closest. Last winter my tractor needed work and they came and got it for me and then...

    While I love it, not everyone does.

    If you don't like it, don't do it. Why put yourself through that, just because someone else says you should? Listen to that voice in your head. You don't...

    Maybe he's just not cut out for life in the great outdoors. Not every horse can handle it. That's why it bugs me when people refer to a horse being "just" a trail horse. It takes a certain mind,...

    netg, how long is the short wall on your trailer? Looks great. I pulled a Sundowner for 12 years and loved that trailer, btw. Very well built and just felt solid. I'm thinking of doing a small...

    I have already had one hay delivery and another one will come in a week or two. After that, I'm good until next summer. I have covered hay storage next to my barn, and store a month's worth in the...

    They do give you two numbers at breed shows, by the way. That's why the number pads work.

    I started riding seriously as an adult in my 30's, after not riding for 15 years, and quickly moved from one lesson a week to two, mainly because once a week wasn't often enough to get over the sore...

    We get tons of lightning storms in the summer, and I do have a lightning rod on my barn, required by local code when it was built. I don't think the barn's ever been hit, though. I'll be honest...

    I cracked up remembering my son at 10, doing pretty much the same kinds of silly things with the school horses at the barn. And the schoolies just took it, sort of zoned out, and yet still acted...

    It's definitely not cheaper to have them at home, especially when I factor in that I built a barn, bought a tractor, redid the fencing, etc.

    So, if your money's tight, I'd advise against taking on...
