    We put up game cameras on our driveway which also work at night. They were pretty cheap - $80 a piece I think? - and take OK pictures to at least let us know who is coming and going from our farm.

    The only time I didn't like my Chevy 1500 (which was essentially the same as your Suburban) was driving over the blue Ridge and trying to maintain full highway speed. We'd lose som power near the ...

    If necessary, you could be prepared with the figure of what it would cost her to buy a comparable trailer, brand new, today. That will give her some reasonable comparison.

    You might try calling the John Marshall Soil and Water Conservation District and see who they use for their cost share programs. I'm sure there are plenty of people who you could hire for fencing,...

    Caring for Petries

    How do you care for your Petrie dressage boots? I seem to be getting some wear/cracking around the crease, despite regular cleaning with boot cleaner and occasional treatments with boot cream.

    I use Piedmont Equine, usually Dr. Joe Davis, although I've seen most of their vets for one reason or another over the years. I've been very happy with them and have had any number of issues from...

    I'll be one of dressagediosa's 18. 2nd level and a freestyle. Very excited, as I usually have to be away on business during this show, so getting to go this year is a treat!

    John Lyons all the way. I've now taught 4-5 horses of varying loading "ability" to load with his method. Even the worst of them only took about 30 minutes to learn to load, and never had a problem...

    I'll have to make sure I listen to this. One of my simple pleasures now that I have my own barn (with its own sound system - thank you DH!) is being able to catch Car Talk, Wait Wait, and PHC on the...

    As has been said, you should definitely be able to take the arms off. I have one of these hitches and bad low back problems. There are some days that there's no way I could get the hitch out alone....

    That's so funny Houndhill, because I have ALWAYS wanted a wolfhound! Can we set up an exchange? I'll loan you one of my terriers for a wolfhound!

    And a month of doxy isn't bad if my dog is...

    The cuteness is killing me!!!! If I didn't have my Irish terriers, I'd have a deerhoud or wolfhound for sure. They are just the coolest dogs. Please keep posting pics!

    UPDATE - Took Ruari in to the vet this morning and got the call that they think its Lyme. He had a strong positive test, although that was the only sign as he had no temp or other real strong...

    Thanks all. I called even before looking at these responses and will drop him off with the vet tomorrow morning for a work up. Nice thing about my vet is that even when they don't have an...
  16. Dog NQR, but nothing specific...take him in?

    Curious about opinions here. My 9yo Irish Terrier has been acting just...meh...for a day or two. He seems somewhat lackluster, and had very loose poop last night. Was uninterested in food this...

    I was in a similar situation, bought a nice yearling from a friend, and I regretted it.

    Don't get me wrong, he was adorable and I had some fun. But at the end of the day, I didn't love the three...

    One more thought on eminent domain. In some states, a state-held easement can only be condemned by a federal entity (which is actually far less common than typically thought) so if selling or...

    Bluey -

    The article you cite is woefully mistaken and just plain wrong on so many fronts, but I'll address the issue of "flipping easements" here. While "preacquisition" is a common conservation...

    I work in land conservation for a living (albeit in Virginia, not NY) and would be happy to answer questions in PMs as to how the federal incentives work.

    This may or may not help with loading and unloading, but I did have a horse who HATED slant load trailers. He would paw and bang the whole time. When I put him in my straight load, I had not one...

    Interesting to hear the responses and range of experiences. I should say that showing is expensive, and I accept that. And I also don't think anyone is getting rich running dressage shows. That...

    Trailer-in fees for shows

    Gah! Just did my entry for a show that is (quite wonderfully) local to me - just 15 minutes down the road. But I was astounded at the $40 per day fee to trailer in.

    I understand that shows need...
