    So...Life has a funny since of timing, and it looks like the Khartoon Khlassic mare that I leased out in 2010 and then lost track of (long story) is coming back to me this summer. Which means that my...

    I've talked with a friend who works for the NRCS, and he has also reassured me that this is probably not as scary as it looks. I've got a number for the local field service agent, who can hopefully...

    I'm on city water/sewer, so it *shouldn't* be a septic tank. But this house was built in 1938, so I suppose it's possible that there may be an old one under there.

    The hole is about 5-6' from my...

    Thanks, all. KPD was supremely unhelpful when I called them this morning. They essentially said that, since it's on private property, it's my problem to deal with and didn't even offer suggestions...

    I don't think this is a 9-1-1/leave the house immediately kind of situation. Do you really think so? I mean, this is Tennessee, after all, and sinkholes are not exactly a novel phenomenon here. While...
  7. Insult To Injury (Snow Related) - Sinkhole

    I realize we don't do snow and ice well here in the south. But I'd like to take just a moment to whine. This afternoon marked the first time in 6 days that we have even topped freezing here in...

    We got 1/2" of ice on Monday and about 1.5" (and counting) of snow today. The snow's not so bad; we could have handled that. But the ice has paralyzed us down here! With the possibility of 30-50 mph...

    I agree with spotted draft. My horse jumped around soundly off-and-on at 3' for four months on what turned out to be an avulsion fracture of the cannon bone. Even if she doesn't have a fracture, she...

    As others have said, we can't (at least not yet) "cure" Cushing's in horses, but Prascend (only FDA-approved form of pergolide available currently) will slow the tumor growth. With the old,...

    TC Senior is a well-fortified feed. If you feed at least the minimum recommended amount, you don't need to add anything else. If you feed less (as in your case), the company recommends you add a...

    That is actually incorrect. While straw may seem less dusty than shavings or sawdust at first glance, it actually contains a much higher concentration of mold spores and small particles. For that...

    Wow. You learn something new every day. 20+ years in the horse industry, and I've never seen that particular gem.

    I've seen breed show people attach the draw reins to the girth between the horse's legs, not around the outside of the leg behind the elbow. It seems like this way is just asking for the rider's leg,...

    Somehow I missed this post earlier, Stripes, but I believe that the mare you are referring to is the one I've decided to go with. I'm still weighing the choices, but I'm about 80% certain that Furst...

    This is my big concern with Rosenthal. While I don't need or expect to produce a Grand Prix jumper or even a 3'6" hunter, and probably any warmblood would improve the jump to some degree on an Arab...

    Balta'Czar
    Rosenthal
    Cabardino
    Furst Impression

    Yes, stripes is correct. I want an actual hunter that just happens to be Half Arabian, not a Hunter Pleasure horse. My current gelding, while definitely NOT bred for it, was very competitive locally...

    Since I come from the Arab world, it is easier for me to find a nice Arab mare to take to a warmblood stallion than vice versa. I definitely wouldn't oppose the opposite cross, but I don't think it...

    Thank you! Balta'Czar is definitely on the short list. His seems to be a love it or hate it bloodline, from what I can tell, but everything I've seen points to a promising cross on an Arabian type...
