    Are you talking about fields or otherwise? I would not use anything that cut less than 4 inches, and unless you're using a mowing deck off your tractor, that's hard to find other than very expensive...

    If you're serious, I'd make sure the owner knows of your interest now - and regularly - and that you'd be willing to offer her a home/purchase at the killbuyers price + something for his time/trouble...

    I wouldn't switch; this seems to be a problem many of us have. I feed orchard grass/alfalfa, straight orchard grass, and brome. Every once in awhile I open a bale that looks great, smells great, and...

    Love my Asmar jacket! Bought it at a horse show a year ago and took it as my only coat to Italy…traveled all over for 2 weeks and despite some wicked rains, I was toasty and dry. It also looked...

    I use bagged, kiln dried shavings which are really absorbent. I take out the wet spot every day with a shovel from all stalls first, which gives them a bit of time to dry out. The stalls have mats....

    So sad…I know there are moments in my own barn when I'm here alone and I make a conscious choice to not do something, just in case. I have nothing but well-behaved horses, but if I'm holding a hind...
