    I got some very good advice when I was younger. To succeed in the horse business you need either a lot of money or a lot of talent-preferably both. I had neither so I went and got a job that gave me...

    I had a mixed experience with them recently. I ordered a blanket and a bottle of fly spray (so that I could get over the minimum shipping-I can always use fly spray). They didn't pack or seal the fly...

    of course there's always more! Same place as above. I come to the barn mid-aftenoon on a very hot (mid-90's) day. The barn is shut up tight and it's at least 100 in my horses stall. When I ask why......

    Congratulations on the upcoming addition!
