    When I did the math and added in all the brackets, bracing, cement, etc. board fencing was cheaper. Even running hot on it. One thing that will influence the cost is how far apart you go with the...

    I have 290 (range from 50-55 lb) bales in a 2 car garage (18x22--so not a huge garage). It's also up into the rafters though. Depends on your height. I still have three feet on one side to walk...
  3. Gal has one here. Clyde TB cross, second level. ...

    Gal has one here. Clyde TB cross, second level. I think a full sibling was a pretty big showjumper in Canada. But the mare tore a tendon 2 years ago (I don't think the injury had anything to do...

    We must be weird here. Very small English community (western land), but I can think of four friends who ride dressage who bought in the last year or two. The 65+ gal bought a Londonderry line 4...

    As an aside, last winter I heard coyotes singing all winter long. Not a peep this winter. I wonder if that's why it is such a problem now (we've only been here a couple years)? I mean 5 cats could...
  6. This happened to me once, but I was bringing...

    This happened to me once, but I was bringing beautiful alfalfa (maybe 20 bales though). I delivered and sold the hay to the barn owner where I was moving in for FMV. She just took it off my board. ...

    Jeez, I thought I was clear I didn't want to kill the cats or have bad relations with my neighbors. Also, when your planter boxes around your front door smell like cat piss, it's kind of gross. But...

    I didn't think they would do anything to a chicken either, but they do hunt in groups (which I also didn't think cats did, but I've seen them) and I think they will smack around a loner for giggles...

    Just have a big cash cushion for all the crap you didn't anticipate. Like a flood taking out 70' of your driveway and depositing it on top of your fence on your high property that hasn't been...
  10. Cats everywhere...including in the hen house...WWYD.

    I have 7 chickens today. Three days ago I had 8. I occasionally let them free-range in the afternoon on nice days. One chicken, Red, has always been a renegade--she goes off completely on her own,...

    Is he really on board with farm life? How will he feel about taking care of the farm if you have to move? It can be a burden.

    I'm all about having no debt in retirement, although I realize you are younger from your post. But do you want to HAVE to get another job?

    All I know is every time I have moved, I have always...

    Great, so now in addition to be "obsessed" (husband's term) I now have multiple personality disorder.

    Do you have hay storage there? Can you drive up to it with a big truck? Not clear from your post.

    It just cost me just as much to run electric 15' (not super deep) and put in a box and two outdoor outlets as it did to run water 100+' six feet under ground with a giant back hoe, regrade, and hook...

    I would rather have the 80' (or as close as I can) and a little shorter than give up width--assuming money isn't an issue with one vs. the other.
    I'm also wondering, would it make more sense from...

    Piggybacking off GotmyPony's post--One aspect of donkey ownership I didn't even consider is that my donkey and mini donkey together are easier on the land than one horse is. But you need to be able...

    No. I'm taking a week long vacation in March (yay!!) and it would just be too much. There is online chatter about forming a IA,MN,SD chapter (how's that for a drive?!). Would be nice if that happens...

    I need to share this thread with my husband. He's convinced Archer is the worst doberman to live with ever (he's not THAT bad--just exuberant with endless energy).

    Velcro-yes. Zelda was the...

    I can only speak for me, but regarding severe injury--I would just have my horse stay at the vet's. If they have room it's really not horrible $$ wise. I also have a boarding barn 10 miles south...

    My horse, donkey and mini donkey are outside 24x7. They have a deep run in. I am in SE SD, so very similar to MN and IA, which are a stone's throw away.

    I ran electricity and water to my drylot...
