    Ribot lines tend to jump well, and your guy has him top and bottom, so he may jump. I don't know much about bloodlines for sport though. I have a mare with 3 crosses to Ribot within 5 generations....

    Thank you for taking the time to write all that up Clanter! I think we'll definitely set up a meeting with an attorney. So much more to think about than just paying taxes, isn't there?

    Thanks...

    Kentucky. I did put that in my first post.

    Yes Clanter. This is for 2014 taxes. We were planning on talking to the tax accountant about planning. Do you think it's worth the extra money to do the...
  5. Tax Accountant recommendations, please?

    Like the title says, we are looking for an accountant to help us with our taxes and would love any recommendations. We have several income streams including regular, off the farm employment, a horse...
  6. I just got Giddyupflix, and need video suggestions

    So, this winter I signed up for Giddyupflix (like Netflix for horse people).

    What are some of your favorite training videos? Suggestions for what to watch. It seems like they have EVERYTHING! ...

    We've heated exclusively with a pellet stove for the last 12+ years, in three different houses, and would never go without a pellet stove again. I would strongly suggest you go with a pellet stove. ...

    I had a horse like that once. We took 2x4s and nailed them to the posts, in effect extending the posts upward, then strung electric on them. Didn't look as awful as it sounds. After 4 or 5 months he...

    LOL--I didn't expect so much advice on pigs! I'll let you all know how it goes for us. We've got several acres of woods on the back of our farm. I was thinking about fencing it in really well to...

    I like bacon. Lol. The rest of the pig too. We just bought our farm last year and are still building horse facilities. But I'd like to raise a few pigs in the future, mainly one for us and one or two...

    Tposts for corner posts with tape are fine. It's not a tensioned fence. We use Electrobraid electric rope on tposts and even though it's a tensioned fence, we did it with tposts as corner posts. (New...

    I know everyone has their own beliefs about hay and feeding, so....here's mine. ;)

    I go with the best/nicest/most nutritious hay I can get, and then adjust their feed according to what they need...

    Another vote for a Ford Edge. I love, love, love the Edge's. But then I'm pretty much a Ford fan.

    I personally don't like Subaru's--had nothing but problems with the two I owned. I know other...

    I'd probably put her on a lite feed or ration balancer too. I seriously doubt she's getting enough vitamins/minerals, even with good pasture/hay.

    But you specifically asked if anyone feeds...

    LOL--well, I found our farm on Craigslist. We moved from Pennsylvania to Kentucky last year. So I would say go to the area of the country you are looking for and look through the Craigslist real...

    I agree, if you are breeding for yourself, and wouldn't mind a carbon copy of the mare herself, go for it. If you breed to a warmblood (sounds like you probably are, if you are wanting a jumper), I...

    I agree with Leland cypress, or some other sort of fast growing, thick shelter tree. Another one might be hybrid poplar screen trees like these http://www.eburgess.com/detail.asp?pid=6765&nav=tre ...

    I thought that was probably the reason but was surprised to see them still wearing them in the indoor. I guess I should have had the sound on while I was watching.

    Thanks

    Why were most of the little ponies wearing muzzles? Or something that looked like muzzles. I've never seen that. At least not in an indoor arena.

    Cute video though.

    I agree a lot with what FindEight said. I think he has a nice rhythm, but looks like he's either been ridden in draw reins like F8 said, or been ridden a lot from front to back (ie stiff hands, or...
