    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...

    That pony is hysterical! He's too cute and apparently knows it.

    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.

    There have been a good number of posts lately about TB mares, looking for stallions with a high blood percentage and such. I'm curious about what everyone thinks of TBs in Warmblood breeding...

    This summer, my 8 year old son and I spent 2 months while I was rehabbing a house, and had exactly that same situation cooking-wise. Here's some of what we did.

    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...

    You could tie it into what you do with your horses too. For example, our farm name is Chestnut Run--because when my husband and I got together, we had 4 out of 5 horses were chestnut, and they were...

    I've seen lots of reccomendations to keep wasp spray handy--by the door, by the bed, in the living room, in the barn. It hurts just as bad as pepper spray, AND sprays up to 20 FEET so you can stay...
