    One thing I noticed is that you have to walk through/across the whole tack area to get to your feed. Under all circumstances you'll be needing to get to feed multiple times every day, while it's...

    If you have some POWDER dishwasher detergent, try soaking the pan with a bit of liquid soap suds and add a good 1/2 cup or so of the powder dishwasher detergent - like powder cascade. I stir just to...

    Suggest you get a luggage tag type thing (or even a pet tag) that you can put your name, phone # and maybe barn name on and attach to your saddle, just in case you and your horse are parted along the...

    My horse only gets 1 cup of Standlee Alfalfa pellets at "lunch" (gets him to come in from the pasture) and I feed them dry. Is there a reason you don't want to do that? My horse loves them and has...

    I would suggest you do some good stretching exercises both before and after your lessons: legs, arms, torso, full body stretches, too. Doing it after will help keep your tired muscles from tightening...

    Tryon, NC, area. Horsey since the 1920s, two long-time show venues (FENCE and Harmon Field) plus brand new Tryon Intl Equestrian Center (owned by many of the Wellington partners). 2 Foxhunts; the...

    The simplest to say but the hardest to do at times, is for you to remain calm if he gets a little antsy. Breathe. Tell him how good he is.

    And I like some advice I picked up on one of the other...

    Great unbiased source material. :no:
    Thanks for sharing.

    Funny how the right doesn't seem to like it when somebody else is weighing in on the healthcare options that should be available to them....

    Sadly we had a local couple near retirement age lose nearly $500,000 a few years ago to a small-time thief who stumbled across their safe. The contents represented 40+ years of savings for them; they...

    There's the really old (male) saying, "Your lips say no, no, no but your eyes say yes, yes, yes." I think that's what Limbaugh is alluding to in a nutshell. Of course all up to the man to make that...

    I have a Tucker Equitation Endurance and really love it; I've had 2 actually, a wide for my round, mutton withered mare and a regular for my current high withered KMSH. I do LD...

    Does your mare look like Brunello? Because he's not "huntery" either but it doesn't seem to be holding him back. :D

    I also think that there may be more cases of single/widowed people deciding to share a home, especially women (who tend to live longer). Which to me would not be a bad thing in terms of having...

    Having a horse is a partnership. You really like this horse and you lucked into him because you were willing to be kind to him when he looked to be in poor shape. I assume the horse also "likes" you...

    I don't do much hand grazing but my horse will poop when I'm walking him to the trailer on a lead rope. Which I really appreciate.

    Can the mods make the above portion of tangledweb's post into a sticky for the "Around the Farm" forum? :lol:

    I can't speak for the other brands but both Triple Crown Lite and Triple Crown 30, often used/recommended as RBs, both contain wheat products and distiller dried grains which usually contain corn;...

    Did you read "Eats, Shoots & Leaves"? LOVED it. Laugh out loud funny.

    Sorry, NSP, I didn't mean to insult Toby, he's just not my taste. As for the slab of meat thing, I was mostly basing that on his look/image in his more recent music videos - all beer-drinking, Red...

    My horse is a Paso/Rocky Mountain Cross. It was intentional, the breeder bred 11 of them over time. I bought mine from the initial buyer who had him from age 3 to 8 and wanted to move into Arabs...

    OK so this may be further than you want to travel but something you could do that would meet your needs and be very helpful is volunteer with the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, who's barn is in...

    Not dumb, I found it confusing too. Ration balancer is really a category, not a specific product. It is often a grain-based feed BUT one formulated so you can feed a minimal amount and still get the...

    For my very easy keeper KMSH I feed no grain. I used to use Triple Crown Lite as his feed but in order to keep weight off I couldn't feed enough TCL to reach its recommended level of vitamins. So I...

    Mine is a quote from a really neat vet in East Texas who left us too young (RIP Grady Ellis).
