    Sorry! I didn't remember that thread.
  2. Chevy Cruze? And buying a Hertz rental car?

    Anybody own one? I'm on the hunt for a newer car and I want to spend less than $14,000.

    I originally thought I'd buy a 2013 or 2014 Camry or Corolla. But Chevy's power train warranty is 100,000...

    Ours is used as a giant muck bucket that gets emptied about once a week, sometimes it goes two weeks. It's a 70's era NH.

    Last week DH welded together one of the bars. We'd had this thing about...

    Good Lord, that was a bad wreck.

    I also believe in the "do not swerve" rule, especially when driving the truck and trailer. Unless the offending vehicle is a semi or a dump truck or the like, I'm...

    I've done this plenty of times, though not for lameness issues, just because I didn't have time to work the horse. The last time the horse hadn't been ridden or worked at all in over a year. Put her...

    My ASBs are definitely snobbish- they don't like to hang with non-Saddlebreds.

    You trust this guy, right? The horse will be fine. I've sent several. Heck, I don't even check on them for at least a couple of weeks. I figure they've got my phone number in case of emergency. I...

    My "perfect" little horse paws. She paws when she wants to be fed, she paws while she's eating her grain. She's done this since she was a foal. She paws when she thinks she needs attention, like in...

    Honestly, I think people worry too much about transitioning feed. I've never had a problem with half and half for a day or two, then all new stuff, as long as they're a similar type of feed....

    Povodine iodine ointment has been my favorite for boo-boos the past several years. I got it from Jeffers or Valley Vet but for some reason I can't find it on their sites anymore. Lots of people...

    DH has made plenty of trunks that are about like this for me and others. They're dirt cheap as well as quick to make. I think you can make 3 out of 2 sheets of plywood at this size, and definitely...

    Vet just left, because of location he wasn't crazy about cutting on it. He told me I can start with Xxterra while he checks into the other options.

    Acyclovir and imiquimod are crazy expensive,...

    Tell me what you've used for sarcoids

    My vet will be out in a little while to put an old horse down:cry:, and I thought I'd have him look at a golf-ball size sarcoid on another.

    He said he usually cuts and freezes, but I haven't...

    My first horse was green broke, though I didn't realize it. At the time I was about 14 and don't think I even knew what leads and diagonals were. My second horse was an un-started 2 year old. We did...

    Weird. I'd drive myself in that situation.

    More than once I've trailered a friend's horse to a show so she didn't have to drive her big 4H trailer all the way from her house to the barn (over an...

    Got any Amish in your area? I send all of mine to one Amish trainer for a month or two to ride and drive before they go to the regular trainer. However, not all Amish are created equal- my guy is...

    The horse owner was probably right.

    As a rule, we don't shoot random dogs. However, 2 have been turned into buzzard bait on my farm, and a third would have if DH had grabbed the gun a little...

    I acknowledge than none are specific to vaping, and admit that long term effects of vaping are unknown. However, nicotine is not the monster that people like to make it out to be. Smoking is.
