    Love the “Dolly analogy” a great way of putting it and humorous. I would like to use it but being a guy it would probably be viewed as sexist.

    Not sure how Clenbuterol which is used as a bronchodilator for horses would give the desired effect being discussed. Please explain your thought behind this, just curious.

    LOL, not that big but it is set up for the loader. Counter balance is important. But even then there can be a bit of teeter-totter and anguish moments. The big loads never get that far off the...

    Pretty impressive system. What was the cost installed? Unless you have an equally impressive battery pack you will be “buying” electricity for around 12 hrs a day during the winter months. The...

    Heat sources properly sized, properly installed, properly maintain in a barn are not more “risky” then having a heat source in your house.

    Not exactly over optimistic but rather a typo/mind fart. I meant to say 5,000 lbs, to be exact just under that. Will lift just under 3,000 to full height. I have fully tested it over the years. ...

    I was surprised how fast a couple of OTTBs sold when I put them on Canter. They had been off the track a while and had been worked with a little bit. One was raised and broke here for a client. ...

    A saws-all works well if you are cutting near where the siding is attached to the framing. Very problematic if cutting in the middle of the sheet depending on the gauge/thickness of the siding. The...

    LOL, if you think goosenecks are noisy and rough try riding in the back of a 2 horse BP.

    It still amazes me that horses will get back on after their first trip. Some more willing then others.

    I only use pollyrope or something of the like. To avoid this from happening cut the rope every X amount of feet depending on the run and use “splice connectors” so if a horse happens to run through...

    Bit of over kill IMO. But I would love to have a Plasma torch and would use it if I did. Too many $$$ for what I could use it for.

    It is my understanding you do this to save the teeth on the blade. I just use an old blade or buy a cheap one. One time I didn’t feel like taking the time to reverse the blade, it cut better and...

    For those who have a bit of experience it is quite easy depending on the size of the doors and the existing framing. Also a few tools to work with.

    I have a JD 5525 4WD which is considered part of their “compact” line. But is substantially bigger then subcompact you are looking at. Bought it new 10 years ago with a FEL rated for 5 tons....

    Just about all hay produced in high to higher humidity locations and short weather windows is going to be “treated“ with a preservative. And considering Timothy and Orchard thrive and give the best...

    This is a bit of a fallacy. The name “grass hay” is about as generic as it...
