    Mine is 12' wide and 14 or 16 feet deep -- I placed the crossties so that they are set back enough they will back into the wall so there is quite a bit of space in the front. I find this size works...

    Not an attorney. I think plenty of self employed consultants in all sorts of fields of work concern themselves with billable hours. The good thing is that both my partner and I can set our hours, and...

    Take an equal measure of dry beet pulp pellets and your other beet pulp based feed and add the same amount of water to each and watch the expansion and absorption. That should illustrate the...

    Every person values their time differently. Again, I just am pointing out that there really is a dollar amount that should be attached to that time. For me, lost work IS a factor as I have cut my...

    I thought this one really told the story (the look on his face!).

    Personally, I think if you measure from end to end of the buckle and state that is how you measured (or better yet, show a picture with the tape measure), that is sufficient. I try to just get a good...

    Yes, I caught that, but wanted to point out that there is a cost attached to that time.;)

    I have a similar setup with a section of wood fencing that separates two paddocks that share a large water trough. Where the trough is, there is just one wood rail above it (since the tub fills the...

    The problem with that cost comparison is that you aren't valuing your own time. I figure SO and I spend a couple hours a day minimum doing horse care with 3 of them here. That's time that we could be...

    We built our place from 10 acres of previously logged and gone to brush land, to a fairly nice little place with a 3 stall barn, dry paddocks, pasture, and arena. I would do it again, and better than...

    Here in the NW, I just paid $30/50 lbs at the feed store, down from about $36 the time before. My non holistic, non woo woo vet has recommended feeding flax for years, and mine get 1/2 to 1 cup per...

    Just noting that this thread started almost five years ago, bumped up by a new poster. The topic might still bear discussion, but the original poster hopefully isn't still dealing with the same issue...

    I think you've done the right thing, seeking a second opinion. Not having seen the x-Rays nor the horse, just based on what you have described, I would be very leery. But I'm risk adverse and having...

    If you can have a fan at your stall, that is one of the best ways to keep insects at bay. I prefer that, if done safely, to sprays and traps.

    I haven't looked recently, but last purchased from Adams. I wonder if you should just contact Horseware directly. If they've stopped producing it, I don't know what I will do! Except horde the gallon...

    I use the Rambo wash. It is my preferred one. I buy the gallon, and try to find it on sale and with free shipping so I always have some around. I've tried the Nikwax and did not like it. I thought it...

    As I understand it, woolite is not recommended for genuine sheepskin items. Mattes recommends Melp.

    Have you tried a different type of hay? I had a similar problem for years with one of mine, and finally figured out that it was the orchard grass hay. Every barn here feeds orchard, it is just the...

    Depends on the quality of the pad, too. Some just don't last - I've heard but not experienced that with the older Thinline ones that had sheepskin/fleece.

    I use Melp in a front load washer. Line...

    I have a small stretch of HG tape fencing that I think is configured similar to what you describe. This divides my dry paddock. One end is attached to a wood post, then there are t-posts with full...

    I use step in posts with electric tape to do temp fencing for rotation. Works fine as long as I'm not trying to step them in during the summer when the ground is too hard. I hook it up to be hot and...

    I've been to a few barns in that area when horse shopping and thought it would be a nice place to have horses. A bit too arid for me (flying in to Medford, all I remember seeing was a brown and...

    Uh, I can't agree with this figure at all. My bins are 4' deep (tall). By this calculation, my bin full of manure should reduce from a 4' tall pile to 4"? Maybe if I left it there for years! Our...
