We did it. Moved across the country. Had to board the horses for 6 months while the new barn was being built. Had our equipment/tractor and horse shipped commercially. It wasn't cheap but easier...
I tested my cameras tonight. Lorex LW82 - on sale right now.
House is probably 300 ft from barn.
Barn is metal and heavily insulated. Fortunately there are windows about 9 ft up so I can get...
Thanks all :)
How often should the mare be palpated?
I pay $5 per stall but that includes turnout or bring in blanketing and, stall should have hay and water. Takes about an hour max for 4 stalls.
Can you share that MD link please:)
Specifically Lubrisyn. I swear I read about it here.
I wanted a dropcam but decided against it since our internet is limited to 30 GB each month, from what I've read, usage would go over that.
www.foalingcamera.com seems like they have good set...
I have some left over ;) Anyone try it on their skin for wrinkles?
Mine is under roof but I always crank it down to level. Not sure why, just makes sense to me to try and keep even weight on all tires.
I have 2 Rhinos. Medium and sheet high neck. Both purchased within the last year from SmartPak.
They fit this mare well and I'm very pleased. She and her pasture mate are not hard on their...
I have a hawk now. Would like an all aluminum brand like 4 star or Elite.
Im also having trouble finding a two horse straight load GN. Seeing lots of 2+1s but I don't need that much room. Plus paying $25k on a two horse trailer is hard to swallow :/
Nothing in Iowa this time of year :/
I ran across this while googling ;) Thought it worth sharing.
Here's a photo. Love it. No maintenance. I put a lane between mares and geldings to prevent playing over the fence.
I bought from the centaur rep that posts here. She's out of TX I think.
I was going to do exactly that set up but decided against the top flex rail. I went with 4 coated electric wires from centaur. Love it. Couldn't be happier.
All 4 are hot but have considered ...
I have a side ramp on a 2 horse and honestly I never use it.
They can have mine too. Real feel is -18. High for Wednesday is -1. The HIGH!
Thankfully we've hardly had any snow so far, that always makes chores 10x worse.
Interesting. Vet thinks what she's getting now is fine. I could switch to the Ultium growth instead of the performance if I wanted. Suggested feeding calf manna for extra protein the last 30...
Thanks. Sounds like I could stop the mare plus after switching to a balancer.
Makes sense about the sweet feed.
Let me make sure I understand... ;) I can just feed the ration balancer, good hay (I just found a source for brome so hopefully that's taken care of!) and...
While I'm waiting for the vet to call me back, I'm looking at two "feeds" from Progressive. One is the Ration Balancer called "ProAdvantage Grass Formula Diet Balancer" and the other is "Premium...
Thanks guys. Great information here! Appreciate the sharing :)
I've got a message into my other vet to discuss feeding options. I do know the last 3 months you're suppose to increase protein,...
