    I was just talking with a vet about this. He feels cancelling shows, etc is completely unnecessary. He said most horses have already been exposed to EHV and that it's older horses (maybe immune...

    I had my first OTTB for years before I got his ribs covered. I think that may have been while he was at the barn that fed the cheapest possible feed; I know at that barn he got about twice what your...

    So, am I picturing this right? I'd put a hot strand on top, connected to the hot terminal at one end and likely knotted on an insulator at the other end. Then a few inches below, another strand...

    I'm starting to buy electric fence supplies and read that in dry areas you should have two strands close together--one hot and one grounded. If you do that, do you need to put in ground posts? I...

    You're in WI, where the 3 portable run-in manufacturers that I considered using are located. D Buck has one 16x24 shelter priced at $3500, so two is $7000. Where did you get a quote for double...

    I wear Tropical Rider's pull-ons and have found that their regular rise is becoming high rise, at least in the Toasties. I've been ordering the low rise and I'm rather sure it doesn't qualify as low...

    Hahaha. It was a bag of Okee-Dokee cheese popcorn--which the dog does enjoy eating. Never offered it to the cat.

    And my stove is now knobless.

    How timely! I came home the other night to find my electric stove turned on and a plastic bag of popcorn scorching on it. Obviously wasn't going on for too long since it wasn't on fire and only a few...

    How are posts "pounded?" Is there a special device for this, or do you take a front end loader and beat the post into the ground?

    Are they still made with a fiberglass roof? I thought it was in 2014 that I was told they did, but I just saw a Hart and it had a metal-looking wraparound at the top of the side. I also couldn't find...

    Are there actually states that require horses to be vaccinated for rabies? If not, why would anyone care?

    Horse trailer brands with fiberglass roofs?

    New horse doesn't seem to like my Brenderup; I really like its fiberglass roof. It seems there aren't too many manufacturers making them anymore, but I just stumbled onto Heacock and Double D...

    I could not imagine why gas would be used for a hysteroscopy, but a Google search says they can use CO2 gas or liquid to expand the uterus. (If the gas hurts, why do they use it???)
