    I have two doors on every stall (only 3 stall barn shed row style) and I very rarely close my horses in. I find in real cold temps they prefer to huddle together in one stall. The barn is insured,...

    I have seen a barn go up in flames from a single spark from a tractor hitting shavings. All but two horses died, mid day with owners present. It happened so fast there was not enough time to save...

    There is much doubt about the 65 horses being from the original Copiah herd. Pretty much looks like the fat healthy horses went some where else and the horses that were shipped back to MS were all...

    I have the Freeform EnduroX . I love it! Very comfy! I ended up with a treeless because I needed to switch to a light saddle from my western because of my own physical limitations. It was either...

    The pole idea is interesting and I would love to block the light that shines in my eyes. There are some large pines but unfortunately the light has a direct path to the front of the barn. So much...

    Yes, and if they don't like my horses that will be their problem and nothing they can do about it! So do you have suggestion or are you just noisy neighbor?
  15. This is the last time I will explain any more of...

    This is the last time I will explain any more of this. I asked a very specific question about ways to block light and sound and get privacy. And the responses and making me out to be some kind of...

    Empty field when we built and all others on street built same time as us. I guess if they don't like manure they probably should not have moved to a street with 3 horse properties and then right...

    We are in farm rural area in a cluster of estate residential zone. Not the suburbs. Some lots are 6, 9 or 11 acres or more. We don't lock cars and sometimes the house. We have 42+ acres...

    Light is shining on front of barn and into my backyard. Riding ring is behind the barn so just shadows created. It will be next to the purposed work shop. The ring is mostly used for training the...

    Funny you should mention that… while in the barn last night I had a thought about building a new barn on the other side of our back yard and convert the old barn into a garage for DH’s car collection...

    Wow, you really are after me. Maybe your neighbor is OK and it is you that has a problem. Like a chip on your shoulder. Please go back and read my first post. If you have any plant suggestions or...

    We have zoning and they need to get a permit before they build so they will have to follow the zoning restrictions. I don’t need to become friends with them. They need to answer to the County and...

    What exactly am I doing to them? So I can’t plant trees on my property without antagonizing the neighbors? I am not lobbing anything onto their property and I haven’t even had a chance to complain...

    I am not your neighbor so stop assuming how I feel and attacking me because I want peace on MY property. I can think whatever I like about them. I haven’t done anything to them but welcome them to...

    What assumptions would that be? Everything I have said was what they have done, what I have observed or what they have said.
