    Are you buying small, local bales (50-65lbs) or the bigger "eastern" bales at 110+lbs? I have two on a very similar set up and 5 tons gets me through a whole year. I use eastern Oregon orchard...

    PNW-- honestly, you inspired me to move from hunters to jumpers. Must be the influence of the field boots I bought from you! :lol: Perfect footing, huge ring, great weather, fun courses appropriate...

    She lives local to me, and I've seen her around a time or two. She certainly had a working class/trailer park up bringing and it showed. Skating is brutally expensive and she struggled to play in...

    Saw a pic my friend snapped in traffic last fall of a horse on a flat bed, surrounded by hay bales to form "walls"!! Horse was loose, walls were maybe six feet, and the back a bit lower. Good...

    Yup, I'm listening to it now! I got to see his summer of love tour a few years back and his live show is amazing. Our local PBS station broadcasts it twice a weekend, so I'll get to check it out...

    My vest is brown, and looks vaguely like body armor of a sheriff or something. If only I had a badge or a camo shirt! The medic also stopped me and asked how hard it is to get off, you know, just...
  8. Jumpers are awesome! First A show experience.

    Just finished 3 days at Country Classic Preview in Oregon, and I'm not going to lie, that was the most fun I've had in 20 plus years of showing! My horse is the best boy-- saved my ammy bacon a...

    Um. There really aren't any h/j barns at the coast. Oh, there are a few boarding barns but really not anything you'd write home about, kind of basic western. Not where you'd want to live if you...

    It's freakishly hot here today--95! I'm checking on my babies, but nothing I can do about it. :no: Hoping they don't die. The low nest is fine, but that one on the ceiling is awful. The wee...

    Huh. I guess there must be a casual responsible breeder category too, as several friends have a few litters a year, maybe just one. Vet checks, etc. but they might actually not pre-sell any, and...

    We have a Pom from a "reputable breeder". He's a wreck! Tiny, bad teeth, tracheal collapse, heart issues. So, here's hoping your big boy has some vigor. No piling on from me. Good for you for...

    As a, shall we say, middle- aged shaped woman (size 12-14), I love my Fits Beka breeches. Gusseted crotch, control top front, fabric that hides cellulite. Wear like iron, machine washable.
  14. My estimate was based on her statement of flat...

    My estimate was based on her statement of flat ground, not much dirt work needed. Truly, my SIL's ring came in at $7K-- drains, base rock, sand, RR ties. No fencing needed. Not much leveling...

    $7000 with proper drainage, base and footing. Angular sand alone can be great. Do not mix a organic like wood chips into sand. Bad idea, as it holds water, rots, turns dusty and is slick when wet...

    Well, the little fellow is still in the new nest with his cousins this morning and mom, pop, auntie and uncle are busy making sure everyone is fed so I guess I did the right thing! I hate grabbing a...
  17. Swallow fledglings! They're everywhere!!!

    I have two nests in the barn this year, one up high in the ceiling (24 feet up!), and one low on a light in the bedding storage area. Tonight, two little flappers were on the ground. Too little,...

    When a vet refuses to write a scrip to an online pharmacy/retailer where I can get non-emergency or regularly prescribed meds at much lower prices, that can be grounds for ass-hattery in my book. I...

    Student in an unnamed Portland public school classroom: Shithead Smith. Pronounced "Sha-theed". I'm not joking, poor girl!

    Luckily, the shows I've attended are pretty nice ones. Two were run by the same management as the A shows, so I've jumped many of the same fences. With my vest (AKA my own personal sauna!), adding a...
  21. First Time in A Show Jumpers-- Walk Me Through Please!

    Not my first A show but Ive been out of that level showing for years. I switched to jumpers last fall from hunters. I've done several one day/schooling shows, showing in the .75s up to the .95s,...

    Trot- they are a mystery to us! No one lives on this property, and the owner cannot build until he "farms" it and shows, via taxes I guess, that he is. Weird zoning but that's how things work in...

    Cowboymom, you are making an awful lot of ASSumptions about me based on a few posts regarding the property I've lived next to for 12 years. The fence WE have along our shared fence line is field...

    Nope. Really, where I live the only animal that will is a domestic dog or a cougar. And cougar attacks are incredibly rare. Dogs? Not that rare, sadly. Coyotes regularly trot through my...

    That's my concern, as we have a pack of 5 dogs, three of whom are elderly and one who is small and none too bright around horses. We are careful with him around our two horses. Hopefully the donks...
