    It really depends where on the stifle the cyst is. If within the weight bearing part of the joint, I'd be very cautious. Other areas of the stifle might not be so bad. I'd also be influenced by...

    Saw this on the news last night.



    Do have to wonder if they'll change this policy now. :rolleyes:

    8' seems low to me. Mine is 10' at the lowest, I think. We only did a 10' wide overhang and that has worked fine for us; if we'd gone to 12' wide, that probably would have brought the roof down too...

    I also have electric on my paddocks. The perimeter is wood in places, then Centaur HTP mostly. Cross fencing is 3 strand Horseguard tape. The stalls open to paddocks that are separated by the...

    Pictures show a bobcat and I would not worry about it much. We have one (or more) here and it does not ever bother the horses. I rarely see the bobcat "in person" but have seen it quite regularly on...
  6. I have this one...

    I have this one. I love it! It looks like a Fisher Price toy, but it does everything I want -- I'm not interested in cutting big stuff as I leave that to my partner and the big chainsaw. We have red...

    If you can get Standlee products there, they have NSC values listed here for the various products.

    Teff is actually grown for grain in hot parts of the world, but here we can grow and cut it for hay before the seed heads form and it can be super horse hay. Tends to be low sugar, but you still have...

    Averages don't matter much, anyway, as there can be so much variability. The fact that barns are testing the hay is a plus - I've never had anyone do that here and have had to do all the testing...

    I have an IR/EMS horse and keep him at home. Boarding in my area was intolerable with the non-special needs horse; I can't imagine trying to put my IR guy in a boarding facility here. You are lucky...

    Well, one thing is that you have to make sure you are talking the same concentration -- what I am using, and the "standard" I think, is 250 mg/ml -- and with that, I give 6 cc. I don't know if it...

    I've ordered from her in the past and it went fine. I love the Herve Godignon bridles! I picked one up used years ago and it was gorgeous and so well made, it seems it will last forever. Expensive...

    Good advice in all replies. I'll only add that with clipping, Like so many things, practice makes perfect. And the good thing is, hair grows back so if you really make a big whoopsie, it will look...

    My IR horse is getting just a small amount of soaked beet pulp as a carrier for his supplements. I buy the non molasses added beet pulp pellets, soak, then rinse in a colander to wash out the...

    I am thinking of adding one in my wash rack, and had posted this link on another thread about heaters. My ceiling is 9'6" at shortest (wash rack floor is sloped) and I asked Barn Pros about the...

    I'm also one to suggest the Black Country hoop, or "freedom" tree. I had a BC Quantum X in XW for my flat backed warmblood with huge shoulders and it was a good fit for him. When you go to the super...

    We lost a horse at a show once. A new, high dollar (for us) horse at one if his first shows, arrived to find his stall empty. Ended up at a house, in the backyard, a couple miles away and very much...

    I haven't had Achilles problems, but the Muck boots just don't fit my feet as well as the Bogs. I tend to get sore heels still the bottom of my foot from the Muck ones. I mostly said "for now" as I...

    I really prefer the fit of Bogs boots over Muck, but I've had problems with durability. Bogs was super about replacing my Bogs Rider (I think that's what they are called? The tall ones with a heel so...

    I don't have the test in front of me right now, but the ESC was 7-ish, starch at 3, so that puts WSC at around 12. I have two others that are not IR that can eat this with the teff with no worries so...

    These cost more than the one you posted, but are made for barns -- and Barn Pros is in your area. I bet if you contact them, they can tell you how it might work for the space you have. And they are...

    I have a couple of game cameras set up to capture pictures and video of actual game...like the bear that was raiding the neighborhood garbage cans or the bobcat that was strolling down the barn drive...

    Coming back to report that I did buy some beautiful teff hay that came in with lower NSC (7.6%) and even higher protein (18.6%). If my IR guy stays in work, he probably would do ok, but since we are...

    I haven't sold a horse in 20 years, until I put my young, green TB on the market this summer. It has been a learning experience, and I can guarantee it is the last time I'll sell one myself! Being...
