    In the hair section of any grocery store or drug store, you should be able to find a cheap black elastic cloth headband. Put that high on your forehead and around the back of your neck. You should...

    What about primrose jasmine? I planted some here in Central Texas, and it does great. It needs a lot of room. The bush I planted five or so years ago is now about 5 feet tall and at least 8 feet...

    Got it. The opposite of a short.

    If a chewed wire were busy heating something up, wouldn't that raise resistance in the wiring? Sort of the opposite of a ground fault. Seems like that is...

    airhorse, cost vs peace of mind! I will do some research on AFI's, but do you know... if a wire were exposed, then heated up something flammable, would an AFI detect the arc, and would it help or is...

    Ahh, I think I see. So the fire hazard of rodents chewing on wires is the exposed hot wire, not a "short" to ground?

    My wiring is in conduit, supposedly, but I always worry what is really going...
  9. Barn fire safety question about shorts in wires

    I can call my friend's electrician husband on Monday (boundaries! stop myself from calling friends for work question on Sunday), but there are a lot of electrical smarties here too.

    I am going...

    We are so lucky to have so many good trainers here! The replies are pretty much directed to public lessons accessible to the NW side of Austin. Many more good ones! With all our horsies, I am...

    I researched all kinds of smoke alarms and cameras, and then decided on a nice reliable baby monitor. I am used to sleeping with the sound of snorting and munching, and I figure if something is...

    I really like the wide noseband on the Smartpak wide noseband bridles. It is not padded, nice and flat, darkens perfectly, and the stitching very subtle. I am not a fan of fancy stitching either. ...

    Sharon, that is a good point. I will of course always consider the surgery. I guess I need to edit my question. What I really want to know is what others have done or think they would actually do.
  16. Colic surgery for older horse? Want to consider in non-emergency state of mind

    In many years of owning horses, I have dealt with colic probably more than any other serious malady. I have had two undergo colic surgery through the years, although both were at boarding barns at...

    Check out Turtlenecks. I have a few and like them very much. The name is deceiving... they don't go way up high on the neck. They go higher than others and have elastic around the neck that keeps...

    Ugh, I hate those things. You can tell right away when a horse has been ridden in one. They get that "compressed neck" look. The line where the neck comes out of the shoulder is all tight and...

    Here is the photo from the original post (with his pro) and a video of me a year and a half later. He went on to be a great horse for me. At my age, I buy for brains. He did not vet the best, and...

    Mine are in a similar situation. My stalls have front doors and back doors, and for two of them, I leave their back doors open so they can come in and out at will 24/7 except when it is muddy, rainy...
