    I hesitated to post as I am aware any fencing can cause injury. That said, in 30 years of horse ownership I have never had an accident this serious, and my vet's comments regarding the necrosis...

    Just had a very bad pasture accident yesterday with White Lightening. One of my mares put a hind leg through it and severely injured her hock (nasty gash across the joint.) Also has "rope" burns...

    I feed fibregized to two of my horses... BUT do be careful with it because it can cause choke pretty easily. I cannot feed it to several of my horses for that reason, and I know others who have had...

    They probably meant "frustrating" or "disappointing." I doubt they meant to sound callous.

    Ditto.

    12 foot gates are manageable. I have some 20 foot gates (as well as a few 20 ft openings with 2 10 footers) and they are kind of a pain. Fine for occasional use but not something you...

    I suggest either a used camper (you can find inexpensive ones and resell for about the same a year or two later ) or a garage with a small apartment upstairs (since you mentioned your husband wants...

    Ouch!

    I hope your little dog recovers quickly. I shared the highlights of your drama with my (new to horses) husband as one of my seewhatcanhappen around the farm stories.


    Re the gate...

    By hydrant, I believe people are referring to a frost free hydrant, above ground. As Ironwood explained, it is a good idea to install a hydrant near where you install your autowaterer. In the event...

    Some of my fencing is 12 years old and some is 6 months old (new farm) and no rot issues. The older posts are full round; the new ones are 3/4 round but pressure treated. The only posts I have had...

    I have a few mesh filled gates and they have horizontal braces - just the same as a standard pipe gate.

    Also, fwiw, I have never had an issue with line posts rotting with no climb.

    I had no climb with an oak board on top installed for $7 / linear foot last summer. My posts are set every 8 feet.


    I think you should be able to get it done for 20k or less, installed.

    I was taught that it is dangerous to give dewormer after it has frozen. I will try to find some authority for that.

    I don't know. About cabbage but alfalfa hay (or soaked pellets) is soothing to ulcers. I use alfalfa and neigh-lox to relieve pain, and what COTHErs refer to as Pop Rocks (omeprazalone granules) in...

    For storage in my barn I use a foaling sized stall - 12 x 26. It has 2 sliding doors and a removable partition so it can be divided as needed for storage or a spare stall.

    I have a Kalglo heater above my wash stall but would worry about having it in a regular stall.
    That said, I have seen similar heaters over foaling stalls at a major breeding farm. BUT the barn...

    Is it Blue Seal Sentinel Performance LS? I haven't tried it but I think that is one people use to sub for fibregized

    I feed fibregized to two of mine and also found it is similar to Triple Crown Senior. One downside to fibregized is that I have noticed a much higher risk of choke with it than with other feeds -...

    I am in Warrenton and have both Verizon MiFi and Exede. Verizon IS very slow in this area (and I do have the latest MiFi gear). Exede is marginally faster. Both are expensive if you stream, but...

    Jingles!

    And congratulations on your new farm. It sounds awesome!

    When you find you can buy a nice used one for 8k and resell it 6 months later for the same price, the idea can become appealing.
    Apparently many people, especially new retirees, buy them thinking...

    Finally was able to download photos... I would put it below the barn. Beautiful barn and farm btw! May I ask who built your barn?

    I had virtually the same options for ring location and opted for the slopes area next to the barn, which required significant cut and fill in our case. The finished arena is 90 x 150 and it was fine...

    Clip my horse could avoid the confusion by posting their rules / policies conspicuously on their website (if they do not already)
