    I would say 60' would be fine for what you are describing as riding goals. If your big guy or you aren't comfortable centering the ends, I bet you'll have beautiful transitions before spring by...

    I think all farm owners have those thoughts now and then. Mud sucks and you are not alone at all in dealing with it this year!

    If you bought your own farm in the first place, you probably...

    Another vote for probably being ulcers. A lot of times, ulcers can make a horse appear to have gas colic too.

    I would go if you can manage it. He is absolutely amazing. I had ONE lesson with him, many years ago, on a cold backed OTTB gelding. I still use things I learned then to this day.

    If she is sore in the back, I wouldn't use any kind of lunging "aid" at all. I agree with the poles/cavaletti, and just letting her stretch down and across them. I'd think that would do her a world...

    You put logs in the paddock for the horses to chew on? Don't you worry about splinters or colic?

    Not trying to be snarky (for real!, although it's probably going to sound snarky), but when my...

    Ok. Delete "much". :) Still, orchard tends to be high 800s while Timothy tends to be low 800s. Hard to say exactly without testing. But if a horse is getting 20 lbs of 815 Timothy that's still 1500...

    I said calories, not sugars. There's a difference. It would definitely depend on growing conditions. It's all impossible to tell without lab testing the hay.

    I personally, wouldn't leave my horse on the coastal bermuda. Like you said, just too much risk for colic in my book.

    I'd go with the timothy/orchard mix, and if you can find it, get timothy...

    Thanks for the answers. That's pretty much what I thought. LOL--I didn't really think I was the idiot I was accused of being. The other lady said bute was outright banned in the UK, and that just...

    Not quite what you were asking about, but I'm building passive solar stock tank insulated boxes to try to cut down on our electric bill this winter. Two stock tank sized one and a muck tub sized one...

    Here's what we do. I do free choice hay as soon as the pastures start to look like they are dying down in the fall. It's a orchard/timothy/alfalfa mix. As the weather gets colder, since they are...
  13. Curiosity question for UK/EU peoples about bute

    Do you use/can you get bute in the UK to use on your horse (with vet supervision, of course)? I just got raked over the coals on a Facebook post for commenting about bute. Made me curious. I...

    I'd probably keep him on his current feed that he is (obviously!) doing so we'll on, and just add a vitamin/mineral supplement.

    We use two 4x4 sheets of heavy duty plywood and 4 4ft lengths of heavy duty pvc pipe under each piece of plywood. Put the pvc evenly spaced under the piece of plywood, and your bale on top of the...

    So sorry for your and the owner's loss. It's terrible to lose any horse, but especially hard to lose a young, talented, well loved one. Best wishes to you both in this time of emotional pain and...

    Anothernvote for electrobraid. It's awesome. We use it for everything--horse paddocks and pastures including for mares, foals, and our (admittedly mild mannered) stallion. I even fenced my goats and...

    2DogsFarm, if you get them young and keep it HOT, electric fence works awesome for goats. We just got our first couple. Ours have a mini paddock with 2x4 inch mesh fence and then their pasture...

    And what a lot of these "rescues" forget in al their slanderous PR, is that mares can be induced with drugs into lactating as well. Yes, nurse mares exist, and they are sometimes needed. But they...

    Arena questions/suggestions

    So, I know there's a ton of ring posts on the forum and I've been reading through them.

    We are laying out where the ring is going to go in preparation to get earthmoving under way. It's about as...

    I agree with everyone who says during the day, outside, for first introductions. I don't put them together in the coop until they are about the same size, although I do let them start free ranging...

    I've always thought something like that would be awesome for our racehorses or during the winter, but don't have any experience with them.

    I want to see pictures of everyone's Freestyle babies, too! I have a mare that I really, really, really want to breed to him. I'm hoping to breed her in 2016 for a 2017 foal.
