    OMG. We always grow way too much of everything - veggies, fruit & herbs. Just no Brussel sprouts, beets, or turnips. But what do expect from 2 horticulture majors. We're still still eating fresh...

    I use MagCl in my indoor. Footing is just angular sand over packed diamond dust base. I've been very happy with it. I was able to get some locally, just the ice melt kind, not Dead Sea product....

    I've used the Best Friend muzzle with both of my guys for several years. They hold up well and do the job nicely. Neither horse has particularly sensitive systems. I'm just "blessed" with extremely...

    Round wooden-ball finial that is used for deck railing. They already have the screw in them, so all you have to do is screw them into the stall front or wall. (I have mine just to the side of the...

    Straight old 2NS (angular) sand. About 2 inches deep. Don't put in too much to start. It's easier to add than take out later. Have LOVED it for the almost 7 years I've had it. (This is for my indoor;...

    Sadly, it has all changed and much for the worse IMHO. I never let my kids participate in the various school fundraisers that were just a grab for all the junky prizes. We did, however, have...

    Ours went through a "naughty" streak in his earlier days too. I always felt that it wasn't so much "I don't want to," as "I'm unbalanced or don't understand what you (the kid of the day) want."

    It's a challenge. They are air ferns, aren't they? Mine (also 19, in a few weeks) would eat 24/7 if I put it in front of him. What are you feeding yours? Mine is basically on a hay only diet, with...

    I am thankful that we got our mid-February warm-up yesterday; even if only for a day. The temps were double digits that started with a 2.

    I am thankful that I got to ride for the first time in...

    By this time in the winter, fruit trees should be dormant and at their hardiest, assuming they didn't get excess fertilizer that kept them growing too late into the fall. How they do will be somewhat...

    We added a cute brick patio to our yard as an unplanned surprise when we built the house a few years ago. DH did a bit of the "heavy work; " that is he hand tamped the base soil. I would have rented...

    BTDT - Son of similar age. Best to just let him know you're there when/if he needs you. We've always been close, but it was still very hard for him. Sometimes the boys really get hurt more than the...

    Oh yes, rehabbed several old farm houses, slightly newer houses, and did all but the electrical (which we won't touch) on the interior of our barn and indoor arena. Had a great contractor put up the...

    I have an HP LaserJet Pro 200 color that so far I am very happy with. Yes you pay more for a laser upfront than those stinking cheap inkjets (went through several on the kid's computer and hated...

    As Others have said, layers, layers, layers.

    Several things I've found handy (and toasty warm) over the years:

    Well, living in the land of perpetual winter we expect to ride in some cold weather or we'd hardly ride at all for half the year. Over the years, I've "softened" my threshold/standards, mainly...

    Yes, see Doc. Like you I always needed my 7-8 hours. In addition to (or even before) the sleep apnea and thyroid mentioned by others, get blood sugar tested. Fasting glucose test is pretty easy and...

    You could have been my SIL too. In-laws always announced visits on very short/no notice, at the most inconvenient times. MIL proceeded to find a long sting of "what was wrong with the way I did...

    I'll second the Orion West lights. Fully enclosed, trouble free. After 7 years of moderate use my first bulb/ballast finally burned out & I'm in the frozen (near single digit) cold north.

    Fjords are the ultimate fun!!!! You can do all those things in the video with one horse (ours does/did, except driving and that's because we don't know how.) I'm so glad today has...

    Have you tried talking to an upholstery shop or a company that makes large canvas awnings? They might be able to order the wider fabric for you or sell you the yardage you need. I've gone that route,...

    You were so very kind to that late comer. I think I would have just put on my blinders, zipped the mouth and continued on my way to the restroom. :lol: Silence is golden - let here get to the ring...

    As cooler fall weather sets in, right about now, I start adding some loose salt to my guys' daily feed. I keep that up until the lush green grass returns in the spring, which can easily be late May...

    All of the above, but when you divide all those fixed costs by the number of stalls, consider that not all those stalls will be full 100% of the time - boarders come & go for any number of reasons....
