    With the one that I had to build a "tie" stall for, I just used 2x4s and 2x6s and plywood. I only did a half wall (4 foot tall--because that's the width of plywood) since he was going to be tied as...

    If he's running his stall that badly, I'd probably be the "meanie" and but a wall down the center to make it a standing stall. A lot of people think you have to tie them to the back wall of a tie...

    At least hair will grow.

    I had one like that a few years ago. I got a short pixie type cut. No problem there. But I told her I wanted the same hair style, but just 1/2 inch off. Well. English...

    I've never measured the speed before. I actually, didn't know that you COULD measure it. Plus I figured, no other options so why bother? LOL

    I've always just planned on a lot of groundwork (until they are safe under saddle) and then lots of wet saddle pads.
