Didn't you mention in another thread that you have some herds of cows near by? (Or am I a getting you confused with someone else?)
Thinking of you.
PBJ, what did the vet find with your horse?
I had one that would go into my barn every night and make a total mess of my cat food. The more I secured the cat food the more mess this little guy made getting into it.
I set out a humane trap...
Jingles for your mare and foal. So sorry you are having to deal with this.
Yes, just take the hose and spray the stall lightly. Stir some to make sure you have enough moisture to keep the dust down (and not so much to make a mess).
Grain you can either make it into a...
Glad your horse is safe.
Those are really nice.
Do these people not have jobs they have to be at? They seem to travel all over.
Another vote for culture.
Sucker, I think you need to google types of flies and then look into how Fly Predators work. Manure is not required. If it is a type of fly that the Fly Predators work on they do not have to lay...
Cluster flies do not actually live in small clusters. I think (totally guessing) they get their name because you see them in clusters on your window sill inside.
All the other bickering and ideas aside. There is always the 'going out for a ride' and simply ride off the property and not go back technique for removing your horse.
I too am interested in this.
Has anyone ever used the tail bucket thing that Emirae posted?
Thank you, Larry.
I will try that.
Fly predators are used all summer long. Depending on where you live when you start for the year varies but they are applied monthly (or more) to keep the population up to control the flies.
To me one horse seems fair. You should not have to give free board for a whole string of lesson horses if you are not getting any monies from the lessons.
This is an older thread, wondering if the OP (or their friend) ever got the situation resolved?
They certainly have you all trained.
Great post Archieflies!
Me either. We finally got rid of our money pit Dodge truck. OMFG it was always broken and parts were impossible to find. Never again.
And no, I do not have a Ford so I have no opinion on that.
This is my experience with Deep Woods Off also. Great for just about everything, but flies. Does nothing for flies.
Build a biting fly trap. They do a great job of reducing those nasty...
This is assuming the mare owner had a clue that the horse in cross ties was a stallion.
Right or wrong it is pretty much assumed that most horses at most barns are not stallions.
Looking at options is fine. Saying this community was negligent for not having something that has now been decided might have helped is Monday morning quarterbacking for sure.
I am not sure moving more air is always what is needed though.
It would be nice if there was a reasonably priced (not saying it has to be cheap) box fan with a closed motor that moved a normal...
