    In one shelter I have mats over stone dust. Works great.

    In another shelter I did not put mats but as an experiment put down 4" of pea gravel over a compacted stone dust base. I LOVE it. Easy...

    I am going to the dump tomorrow to see about bed springs.

    Also, I am about to get rid of a mattress and am thinking I'll just cut it apart and see if I can harvest the coils out of it.

    I think it means vet on site and horse is under his care.
    I'm curious about people who live in the states where 'direct supervision' is required --- what is your actual experience? How do people...

    I'm in California and we're in a severe drought, so I'm trying to water my arena a lot less. The 3" of footing with felt meant I had to put on a TON of water, daily, in order to keep it tight. Not...
  5. Horse massage soon to be illegal in California if this passes. What about your state?

    Here in California we have a very hot situation right now where the state veterinary boards are trying to modify some language which would essentially mean you could only have massage and similar...

    I've been involved with a number of humane cases but this one is over the top. Has to be the work of a hoarder who kept them in stalls 15 years straight. I took on a similar horse (15 years locked...

    Wow, with that laundry list of problems I'd certainly be considering euthanasia, too. And I'm one of those "keep them until they die" people. But it sounds like he just has the cards stacked way...

    Our mule, a normally bombproof kids' horse, was a jumpy, nervous mess on MSM. He actually ran me over in the paddock and knocked me over! Like Burnedout's horse, after a week off it he was back to...

    This!! I put in what was recommended (to go with GGT), which was too deep (3" plus). Wound up removing HALF and now have a good depth of 1.5 to 2"

  10. Grooming arena when footing is only 2" deep -- help!

    After struggling with too-deep sand/rubber/GGT footing (it was over 3"), I had enough footing removed to get me down to 2" overall depth. Rides great now.

    My problem is that with the thinner...

    My dad built one for me, a copy of the expensive show trunks. He measured a show trunk and copied it, including the trays. It's built from marine plywood and it can stand out in the rain for days...

    Thanks for the input. I wound up not setting up a separate trust for the care of the animals but rather adding something to my main trust naming my daughter as caretaker for my surviving animals,...

    I had the same problem -- let a section of paddock go and HUGE woody weeds got ahead of me, then dried up and died with the season. Ugh. Big mess.

    Last week I had to move the tractor around in...
  14. Estate planning and consideration for horses

    I'm working on an updated will and trust and am curious how others have handled providing for their horses. My attorney has suggested I designate a trusted person (my horsey adult daughter in my...

    Years ago I saw an article where they used carpet padding and crazy glue to create a 'custom' pad for a dipped back horse. I tried it and it worked very well! I wish I could find a copy of the...

    I started a new PC close to another PC. Two different clubs, different facilities and flavors.

    My suggestion is you speak with the Regional Supervisor (RS) for the region where you are located,...

    The 10 meter circle on hard ground is an "iffy" part of a PPE at best. I've bought several horses who failed that. A lot of vets do it but you take it with a grain of sale. That she's claim the...
