    As one who both does real workouts, and cleans stalls: You're just trying to fool yourself if you think cleaning stalls is a workout. It's maybe better than sitting down watching TV, but nothing...

    It takes real water to do any good irrigating. Real water, as in 27,000 gallons per acre, almost always requires real money. Not that many hobby horse farms run on real money.

    I wouldn't take any kind of odds on a bet that they would be interchangeable-not so much about the pipe threads, but the seat down at the bottom.
