    We had that as an issue in CA with a flatbed one ton. It needed state numbers and commercial insurance to be used by our business. 26,000 was a magic number there too that meant even more paperwork,...

    Wow. Beautiful farm, beautiful seat on the rider, trotting gait contrasts so well against the snow.
    In Norway somewhere.
    Nice find.

    My first mare would do that sort of. If I went out with someone else we were fine, if I went out on a long long ride we were usually fine, but when I hacked to a lesson I could never put into...

    Things do just sort of catch up with you.

    The tractor had a low tire so when we had our 6-8 inch snowfall DH went to air it up with the compressor, but the compressor didn't want to work because...

    OK, I don't see that the minor child is sneaking off - perhaps the minor child is madly in love with horse and cannot stand the thought of sharing him so makes dates to hold him that she cannot keep,...

    I've had a wonderful puppy dog of a horse that loaded fine, was great for the farrier and the vet and was terrible under saddle, to the point where I started making excuses not to ride.

    I think...

    Well, so it's an attempt at humor, OK.

    Did you agree that the horse needed pro rides only after this event or is this something else where you have wound up not riding at all or riding other...

    I guess it was lovely he jumped?

    Anyway if you remember the old Fugly blog this was one of Cathy's pet peeves, the misuse of tack or some of those ads where it's pretty clear they decided to sell...

    Lots and lots of people just don't spend the time to do a real presentation when they go to sell their horses. Or cars or anything else - my DH went to buy a bookcase once and the lady had it...

    The hens that set and have chicks produce little hens that set and have chicks so we are on generation 3 now. The roo seems to produce more roos than hens so we have a batch of very handsome future...

    I apologize A, they are very nice and good use of space

    It's just that I grew up in earthquake country and never have gotten used to pole barns and suchlike with this idea that the load will...

    They're just weird. The old guy wanted water and his muck bucket was close to empty so he headed off to the two filthy rain (and leaf and dirt) filled buckets in the resting front pasture when I had...

    No bran mashes either here but we do offer hot soaked cubes, not too many or he won't eat them all and they'll freeze. Heated water, room temperature feeds, we try for the old guy especially to...

    I don't think scarfing down a handful counts really in the grand scheme of things. You've got to look at the NSC's, the protein and fat contents and then compare your horse's dentition to the feed,...

    Actually Ambitious Kate just saved me some googling I didn't want to do anyway and probably explains why all my concussions are coming home to roost in my 50's. I've gotten so stupid in my old age I...

    She's getting zero saddle time or has been through about Thanksgiving to now. She gets off school, rides the bus home, does her AP homework, waits for dad to get home to drive to the land where the...

    Unfortunately no or I would suggest that first. This girl has a horse that's kept on her families farm, which has an old barn and no enclosed riding area. She's a backyard rider, her dad's been...
  19. I've been asked for advice on lessons for a child

    who wants to learn to ride English and eventually jump, but the closest jumping barn I would go to is too car dependent.

    Kid doesn't drive, friends don't drive yet, I know the parents aren't...

    It does snow in CA, up in the Sierras, but we lose elevation and the snow at the same time and never experience the refreezing cycle that makes it turn into a sheet missile. I get lazy sometimes...

    I'm supposed to get my old guy's teeth done in the Fall, along with the deworming. If you think about it, they need the extra calories during the cold weather, and to have them waste feed by...

    Snort's 29 this coming April 16th. ASB also, and has Cushing's. He's hell to keep weight on.

    Well, telling him to stuff it probably isn't the best thing to do, but you sure don't have to engage when he starts trying to needle you.

    I use a plate on the floor myself. Dishwasher friendly and all that, dishpan might be even better depending on how drippy it is.
