    A tip on using the Electro Groom: make sure to scootch the bag down between the filter and the removable metal box. Otherwise the bag will block the airflow on the filter, and your vacuum will act...

    I breathe through my mouth when I sleep. Cat hair on the pillow means I inhale cat hair and wake up choking. Fortunately current cat is content to sleep on the blankets or next to the pillow, so I...

    It's like dating. Nobody wants you when you are single and looking. Then you'll have 3 or 4 suitors when the empty spot in the bed is filled.

    A good horse vacuum does wonders. It's a little easier to accustom the horse to a vacuum in warm weather, when the cool air being drawn over the skin feels so good. Approach the shoulders first;...

    One of my relatives used to feed her old lady cat from champagne glasses.

    Sherbet glasses are a similar shape but a bit shorter.

    Following the sensible advice to check local regs, I've found that apparently it's perfectly legal to plug up the well by dropping rocks or sand down it. (The regs are stricter with drilled wells.)...

    Good stuff guys.

    Sounds like capping or filling the well is a good idea. It also sounds like it would be environmentally irresponsible to pay one of the neighborhood kids a penny a rock to toss...

    What to do with old well?

    Say you discover an old forgotten hand dug well on your property. Since it's hand dug, it's large enough that things up to the size of an adult human can fit into it. How do you deal with the well?

    Yup. Also some barn owners inadvertently make the problem worse by going into winter mode: shortening turnout time due to reduced daylight, giving more grain to make up for the horses getting less...

    I think most competent intermediate riders could could hop on my gelding and handle him fine. My mare, however, tends to act up for riders other than me. It's not like we've got a Black Stallion...

    While my guy will get excited and drop, I've never seen him actually try to make it to home plate with a mare. I do think he is a bit socially challenged. I suspect the most recent crop of bite...

    What do you consider "late cut?"

    My gelding is a bratty boy: plays halter tag with his buddies, nips at the barn dogs when he thinks you aren't looking, tears your jacket open looking for treats, etc. Judging by the bite marks on...

    I could wear the ski suit I got in junior high until I was in my 30's. However, my feet kept spreading during that period. I've gone up a full shoe size in adulthood. I've also had several pairs...

    She's lucky!

    An accident when I was around 12 helped keep me a helmet wearer. Turd of a pony did a dirty stop at a jump and added a little buck to ensure I went over his head. As I'm lying on the...
