    I'm on my third year with the cinchchix whole bale nets, and they have survived unscathed, except where *I* cut one bit my mistake. They hold up very well!

    I have them hung inside my run-in...

    Onthebit's farm is kind of the gold standard for retirement farms. Though she charges more than $400, I'm pretty sure. (And has a waiting list).

    Wherever your friend chooses, I'd recommend she...

    But who cares?? The question and discussion are still relevant and interesting; focusing on this peripheral issue detracts from the board as a whole, in my opinion. In other words: it is not...

    I've used the capsules, unbroken. Just toss them in the feed and the horse I gave them to ate them right up.

    Cowboymom: DON'T GO!!!!

    We can debate the nuances, but when good posters stop, the board is diminished.

    I echo Laurierace, this board has been invaluable to me.

    This is my issue with COTH right now. I am not bothered if an idiot gets called out, or even if there's obnoxious disagreement on political threads, those can be avoided. I just find that lately...

    Money saving tip: I couldn't see the point of spending a ton of money on a dress that would be worn once, so I decided to find a used dress. When I was home in Missouri, we went to an antique shop...

    I shouldn't even be replying because I board retired horses (so no idea how it affects a hot horse). It has helped with a couple of hard keepers here, including a 30 year old TB who lost weight in...

    You know, I'm worried about the COTH forums -- they seem to be dwindling, and that would be terrible for me, because COTH is my favorite place to visit! I have noticed more and more of a tendency to...

    You pay for all 30 days, whether you use them or not, so the BO can find your replacement without (hopefully) a break in income.

    The clause is not in the contract for the boarder's sake, but for...

    I'm not your market b/c I have a small barn doing retirement boarding. I just polled my boarders who *all* said they'd rather stick with paper checks than an electronic system. I only have to send...

    For the OP's sake, this bears repeating. *This* is the bottom line, OP.

    My two cents is that the mare and 2 year old sound like they are 1) the most marketable and 2) would therefore bring the most money and also 3) be the likeliest to end up in a good situation. ...

    Yes, I don't think there is one magic bullet against ticks. You have to take a multi-pronged approach.

    As to the diatomaceous earth, I've not heard of it being effective sprinkled on pets. I...

    LookmaNohands is absolutely right. The received wisdom is that Lyme takes 24 hours to transmit, but I have never seen any studies proving this. So it is unclear. However, Powassan virus takes 15...

    Given that you are a small operation, I'm not sure I'd do much if any advertising. I have 11 horses (8 boarded horses) and I have never advertised. Truly word of mouth is the best way to go,...

    99% of boarding barns do NOT keep a deposit, it is not the industry standard. (Whether they should or not is another question!).
