    I always have it around. It's so handy and works so well. Best sole pack, in my opinion!

    I agree with this. It's probably the cervical arthritis. My horse had a similar episode a few years back. We think he tweaked his neck while rolling in his stall. By the time the vet got there, he...

    I always gave a generous cash gift at Christmas and tipped any time a groom did something "above and beyond" for one of my horses.

    I haven't used the Life Data Hoof Clay, but I do use their disinfectant.

    I only drive my truck about 6K miles a year and you would be surprised how many times the 4WD has come in handy. I won't buy a truck without it.

    And in answer to your question, if you don't have a trainer and can't afford one to work with you...yes, you should return the horse to the rescue.

    I have a Rubbermaid 2-wheel wheelbarrow. Works good in mud, snow as long as it's not too deep, and on ice.

    I find it easier to push than a regular wheelbarrow and doesn't bog down like one wheel...

    If you want to use alfalfa cubes, break them up with a hammer, then soak in boiling water. Shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.

    Never feed alfalfa cubes dry! Can easily cause choke. If you don't...

    I was once in a situation where a farm was sold. The new owner, in a barn meeting before the sale closed, assured everyone that nothing would change.

    If she's been a problem in the past, why would you choose her to do this task for you now?

    If it's that important, and you really aren't able to do it yourself, you need to find another option....

    My 33 y.o. mare lived for years on Senior feed along with some alfalfa cubes (soaked).

    She maintained her weight well and loved her meals. Since I was able, I fed her 3-4 smaller meals each day....

    Duraforks aren't meant to do heavy lifting. They're fine for sifting shavings, but they're plastic and aren't up to some jobs.

    I keep a pitchfork for the heavy jobs. I have one horse that creates...

    We're both old! I remember that any stall board care (other than self-care) always picked feet/brushed off/blanketed each day. Somewhere around the late 80's that stopped being true.

    I think some...

    Haven't found it to be overly drying when used a couple times a month.
