    Probably based on whether you care if he dies or not. Personally, I'd kill and butcher a rooster before I'd allow someone to castrate it without sedation (or at least numbing). I'm not sure what it...

    Well, it depends on what you want, and what you can find.

    We could not find a "new-ish" used tractor for much less than $2-3K than brand new. And we did not want an old tractor, because we are...

    Classes are always good - lots of exposure and training opportunities. Plus, training for you, which is the most important.

    I show my dog and also belong to a hunting dog club; most of our dogs...

    And then there is "green broke" which is redneck for "has been sat on a few times."

    I would never assume that my definition of "green" meets that of a sellers -- I would always ask for specific...

    When we bought this house, the septic inspection showed a broken baffle and the owners had to replace it in order for the sale to go through. I am guessing that it was about $1200 ish...but they...

    It's ragweed season, and ragweed is so horrible that it often affects people who are not even allergic to it. My poor younger dd is allergic to ragweed and it's tough.

    The best cure -- neti pot,...

    I'll stick with my original statement....no horse on earth is worth that to me.

    That's ridiculous. A rabbit - ok sure, you're talking about a flake/day or less. A horse?? How many bales do...

    This doesn't help much with the private school salary #s, but at least does give info on public school teacher salaries, by district....so you can at least compare to districts in your region:

    The problem with the idea of castrating the rooster, is that like many other animals - it isn't a guarantee that it won't still be a nasty bastard. Not sure that it's possible to try to modify a...

    Yes, feed stores like Agway and small, private feed stores do. Tractor Supply only carries bagged hay (which looks pretty bad, actually).

    Too bad - I would have assumed you could get hay at the...

    I could understand this for a short time during recovery...but no horse on earth would be worth me "de-leafing" its hay every day. There must be other options - soaked alfalfa cubes, for example. ...

    Are you sure that the teachers made a lot of money? Just because the tuition is high doesn't mean it actually gets passed on to teachers. The possible exception would be a school like Deerfield...

    It might be possible for some minis to be on grass with a muzzle, but not mine, nor my Cushings pony. They really are best when they get NO grass - and most definitely, NONE in the spring. But,...

    Agreed, and our dog washing station does not go into the septic, but just drains into gravel about 100 feet from the house (with the gutters), so that we're not rinsing mud down into the septic every...

    I make yogurt too, and I've never had it turn out *that* thick; not at least as thick as the Greek yogurt that I have bought. Traditionally, Greek yogurt is just strained.

    Different types of...

    Agreed. We have a septic, and we use toilet paper. We don't flush tampons, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were safe as well - I think it would definitely depend on the size of your tank, and...

    As the owner of a mini and a small pony -- I would say you should consider a horse. Ponies and minis can rarely eat the same way as a full sized horse, unless it is limited/restricted too. My...

    No, Greek yogurt is strained. Depending on the culture, and depending on the method, your yogurt can be thicker or thinner...but it is not possible to get yogurt to be the consistency of Greek...

    While this might be technically true, I'm not sure I've EVER heard or seen 12:00n or 12:00m in my entire life. Definitely not a "new" trend.

    12:00am and 12:00pm are perfectly understandable for...

    Yes! Exactly. Or, a teaspoon of black currant jam I made this year - eaten the same way - solid and separate, not mixed.

    We should go out for breakfast (or dinner) together...!
