  4. Need window grills for stalls...recommendations?

    I just need plain, simple grills to install over existing windows. Everything I see on the Internet is overkill.

    Where can I find the simple black bar grills every barn has?

    Thanks!

    $50 here as well (Northern Virginia). She does a beautiful job, she's always on time and is patient with my older, arthritic horses. Worth every penny!

    I have used Agape and I can totally recommend them. The actual cost is based on the weight of the horse and whether or not you want the ashes back. I was charged $1200 for a 1,000 lb. horse...

    Suggest you stay away from River Chase. Similar to Westview/Aldie Equestrian Center.

    Can't think of anything else in that particular area, but I'm not real familiar with what's around Haymarket.

    Based on your post, it sounds like you really can't afford another horse/pony/whatever. Probably your best option would be to find a boarder, possibly one looking for retirement board for their...

    You're very lucky that your cats don't "bolt at every opportunity". I've owned cats for 45 years. Only once did they get out...a door blew open at night, while I was asleep. All of my cats are...
