    That's a good point, FalseImpression. That separatist movement did seem to die. Since I'm an outsider I just chalked it up to people coming to their senses about the economic impact.

    Agreed. The pro-union folks didn't win by much in the first place. So it seems just a matter of time before Scotland separates.

    If you are insured with Farm Bureau they will do a farm check for things like this, and unless things have changed if you install certain measures you get a discount on premiums. I'm not sure they...

    Kodiak; some folks use an old stirrup leather. A local saddler made a "grab strap" for me, which I ended up not caring for out hunting so used it when I gave my niece pony rides. It was rolled...

    Turnout really isn't complicated. You wear a simple English style riding habit. Ratcatcher for cubbing, formal for the formal season. It's old school.

    I'm so sorry her life was cut short. But you did a great job with her and she looked so happy and healthy. You did the right thing -- but I know that doesn't help with the grief. I'm so sorry.

    Agree with calling JMSWD if you're interested in cost-share, and to get referrals.

    I've used George White fencing for many years. They are FANTASTIC. They'll also build coops in your fencelines,...

    If you've got an infestation, you're going to have to spray to get rid of it.

    You'll also want to do a soil test. Bedstraw thrives in acidic soils; so it can act as an indicator species. A bit...

    Good Lord - that's terrible. If it was recalled why weren't you notified?

    I hope the procedure goes smoothly and is painless.
