    I saw the sign that they were taking orders and I'm just so glad I'm NOT raising babies this year. I did 12 last year. It was such a pita, because it was so cold I had to use my basement. Messy...

    1)whatever is cheaper and easier to clean

    2)Rooster will really work over six gals, I think 12 hens would be better

    3)I used a heavy saw horse and a baby pool and chain and could raise or lower...

    Do you have previous earth-moving skills? How many days did you have to rent the skid for and how did you know how big of a skid to get? Just curious.

    I don't have a tractor and am planning to...

    UTI--usually will have frequent urination. Some dogs may have little accidents in the house. Wants to pee a lot. You may find blood in the urine, although that isn't required.

    I've never had...

    I think you are on the right track. I would also have no problem using treats to reward good behavior and taking them, one at a time, on-leash to the back yard. My dog lived most of the first six...

    I might have the lone, bad experience. My old dog attacked the 8 week old puppy as soon as my back was turned. I don't mean he snapped at him either, he bit him hard in the face and it was a vet...

    Hello Ritchie!

    She no longer keeps horses at home. Boards at a gorgeous heated indoor and goes south for the winter! :)

    Drainage is critical.

    For some reason I'm thinking anything over 4' here has to be engineered. But I could be wrong. Agree with checking codes.

    Yes, I want after pictures!

    I agree with shortening it all to the same length. Your "short" section isn't crazy short.

    I have to use a scissors to cut the tiniest--thinnest layer to the length...
  11. Frozen wormer? I left it in the car overnight...can I use it?

    We went to TSC and I forgot to bring in the tubes of Anthelcide EQ. I didn't actually check to see if it froze (assuming wormer freezes) but it was seriously cold out. I'm kicking myself. Can I...

    I promise this is cold weather even for us.

    Get a big Rubbermaid and a submersible stock tank heater and don't even try to deal with the other one right now.

    I find February is just the absolute worst month of the year. I know it is shorter, but it lasts forever. Technically January is (on average) the coldest, but just by a little bit. Usually by the...

    The best arena I rode in had "hog" sides. So it was an indoor, but two and a half of the sides, above the kickboards and below the top four feet, which were the plexi-glass stuff for light, was a...

    I look like an online catalogue for tugs. I have so many tugs. I have leg sleeves and want to buy a bite suit--those take up a lot of room...and can get stinky.

    I'm actually converting the...

    I do know one conformation show-line mal, who is really chill, but based on the dozens of others I have observed while playing around with mondioring, I would never get a malinois unless I was...

    You need to make lots of trips to Minneapolis/St. Paul and go eat out and do whatever cultural thing trips your trigger. You are only an hour and some change away! I used to work for a firm with an...

    I love my Horseguard Bipolar. It's actually more visible in the winter...well if we had snow. We just have below zero hellish temps and wind instead. They have white. You can just get plain brown...

    My dad's side all have boxers. Some were exuberant, some weren't as much (in general I would say yes, high energy. We have Dobermans. IDK that breed-wise I think one would be better for you, it...

    1) You need to work on training as already suggested (best option). 2) There are stronger crates that your dog can't get through, but they are $. 3) Consider a utility room in the new house with a...

    This is just my thoughts as a buyer--thinking about the horse I would buy for myself to ride perhaps. With it being an "outside registry" or F1 type cross, I would be more focused on the individual...

    IDK if this is helpful, but my "appraised" value (from the county) on my home/acreage is 16% less than what we actually paid for it. My assessed value is about 18%-19% less than we paid. We bought...

    If there are any building site eligibilities would make a big difference to me in what needs to be looked into.

    I wish I could buy plain ag land next to me for $3,500! It's double that. And...
