    I have done this. I prefer different weight blankets so stuff doesn't shift around. But if you want an under layer look for one that is slick and will slick the hair if you are still showing/riding...

    I got one this year summer because I was at a store to try them and I'm planning to start riding my green-bean this fall. I had been thinking about it for a long time, but a friend was severely...

    Maybe that is it. I have no idea.

    I threw one of those away when we took possession, as the owners were kind enough to leave it behind... lol

    Can I ask a silly question? How are you using a box spring? Two chains? I assume the mattress is still intact--are you dragging the bottom or the top on the ground? Why wouldn't a box with a...

    I'd say Minneapolis, but the winters would just horrify you.

    I would not say electrobraid is 100% safe. There have been COTHers who have had horses de-gloved (on tight fencing). It's in the searches. There was a COTHER who had a pretty bad injury on coated...

    I personally know of someone who got her high-value horse back after it was stolen because the horse had a brand, so I'm a pretty big fan. Also agree with micro-chip, but that can be removed easier...

    You weren't asking me, but FWIW, I have coated wire as my perimeter fence and posts are 11'-12' apart. You will want to look at the manual for the rail you choose, as that will likely limit your...

    FWIW, I had a young horse break a chip off into her ankle joint on either the pipe fence (it was a rough, very heavy gauge pipe fence--not sure what that is called) or a kick from another horse (hard...

    I'm assuming a jumper foal? What would you like to change, if anything, about the mare--temperament, technique? Do you have any conformation pictures? Who was she bred to before and what did you...

    I think you are not comfortable with this trainer and therefore shouldn't use that person. I don't think every dog needs a prong collar or an e collar. I have one dog I NEVER use an e collar on,...

    Erie! I had almost the EXACT same thing happen OP! Maybe two months ago? Except I live out in the country and it was just getting dark. This black SUV pulled up with 4 large men who looked like...

    This is would consider doing. My horse poops in one spot in the shed and the pile can freeze. Usually the sun is strong enough to melt it even in winter (black mats, faces south). My only concern...

    Similar sized run-in. I do not. I have mats over gravel/dirt.

    When it is extremely cold I double the hay.

    OMG did my husband throw my catalogue away!!? I want to see!

    FYI, Ag land is ag land here (assuming you are far enough out of town) and they don't care if you board or not, I don't even think we have to have x acres per horse, it's probably different there,...

    My dry lot is 30 x 75' (and then 16'x16' run-in opens into it). All electric. Horse, donkey, mini donkey. I just completed a paddock that is probably a double stall. Maybe 24'x24' and two of the...

    I often wondered when I was a boarder why stall prices didn't increase gradually, like everything else (apartment rent for example). Instead BOs would get really stressed and then up prices $50 a...

    Holy Sh! How did that happen? Smooth wire? Eeek!

    My horse spent her first few years on wire and it was fine until the fence didn't hold a charge one day and her injuries were almost the same...

    Thank you for the winterizing info!!!! I hadn't even thought about doing anything more than emptying out my sprayer.

    Not to sidetrack...sorry.

    I'm just mentioning this because you said you have been riding less than a year.
    Leasing was the best thing I ever did after I started riding. FWIW. The horse I needed right away was not the...

    I think if you want to keep the sheep (which I totally get) you should pay to modify the stall door in an agreeable manner to the BO. It really isn't the BO's responsibility to pay for that.
