    Most of us up here in the mitten would be more than happy to look at your brown, dead grass.

    I have the sealed lights by Orion West Lighting, but actually hardly ever need to use them. When we built our barn, the building supply sales person suggested we use a clear plexiglass-type (it's...

    My TB (and herd leader) will get stirred up when deer start dropping fawns in the woods adjacent to our property. At first I didn't make the connection, until I started seeing the annual pattern and...

    What a great read to start my morning! :lol::lol::lol:

    They need a 30+ year old Fjord pony, except it would be way too cute and probably just an accomplice in any mischief the kid could dream up.

    Wish it were on USEF. What little I have been able to "watch" so far has been more like a stop action video than a live stream.

    Soooo much buffering that I was lucky to see more than about 3...

    I'll try IE.

    No luck with IE or Chrome. Guess I'm out of luck.
  8. Trouble with live-stream of Grand Prix Freestyle

    Why can't I pull up the live stream of tonight's freestyle? When I try all I get is a message about crossdomain problem of some sort. Anyone else have a problem or know a work around?

    Leave them as you have them. They will be fine. Ya, the weather down here (below the bridge) is getting "frightful" too. Wussy thin-skinned OTTB has had his blanket on since it got cold; even in the...

    You can use all the materials mentioned, hay, straw, manure, and other organic matter in creating a compost pile. Here's some info on starting a pile from scratch. Once you have it started, just...

    saultgirl, barn drama is so much better when you can make it what you want and the barn is yours.

    Can't remember exactly what we gave our kids at the time (at least 10+ years ago) but it surely wasn't more than $1. We always tried to teach our kids that money was not a measure of their value or...

    Wow, I would try again with a different bureaucrat if you can. When I was going through this for my mother's affairs. I was talking to a SSA rep in my local office, 1000 miles from where my mother...

    You might start here to learn more about Chipotle's ethics if you think small independent businesses are important to our country.

    I do something very similar. Usually use a rolled rump roast, sirloin tip or similar cut. Since it's boneless 4 or 5 pounds is more than plenty and will likely give you leftovers. (The Joy of Cooking...
