I've been getting hay bags from these folks: http://hayburnersequine.com/index.html
and have been happy with the bags, their service, and the choices they offer.
The bags themselves are short...
I've attached a picture of the inside of the approximately 14' x 30' loafing shed in which I keep two to three horses. Because my Foxtrotter never wants to stop eating, he needs to be separated from...
I don't know if this would be possible for your situation or not.
I have a series of shut-off valves in the basement of the house that controls the type of water going to the barn. Options are...
To eliminate shock from static electricity while vacuuming the horse, I use a long length of electric fence tape (wire would work, but me the tape is easier to work with) and wrap the fence tape...
I have this one, and have been very pleased with how well it works:
(Shop-Vac 16-Gallon 6.5-Peak-HP Shop Vacuum)...
It really is!!!
I use a blanket clamp like this: http://www.bigdweb.com/Blanket-Clamp-Large/productinfo/49/ and attach a lightweight "S" hook from Tractor Supply. I clamp hold of the blanket -- at the end, middle,...
Even with muzzles, my horses were consuming enough acorns that I felt it would be best to fence off that area of the pasture. They were both going eating them, but one much more so than the other.
Put a 4x6 stall mat outside, preferable on a slight slope draining away from areas you want to keep dry.
Fill a muck bucket with water (how much you need will depend on how much hay you are...
I've had good luck using a hoof rasp to "shave" down specific areas of foam pads. Don't go back and forth -- always move the rasp in one direction.
I've used on of these on my English saddle and have been pleased with it.
Perhaps a plastic sheet or vinyl tablecloth and then use clothespins to keep it in place?
When I had a horse cremated, the box in which the ashes were returned to me measured approximately 12"x12"x18". Perhaps that will give you an idea of the size of container you will need. I hope for...
I used the rim pads once and found them totally ineffective with regard to preventing snowballs from forming. I switched to bubble pads and haven't had any problems.
Another old time option:
And I love knowing that people such as you and your vet exist.
I've been using this and have been happy with the results:
Be sure to get the product that is marked 40% DEET.
As Lawndart suggested, an aggregate is what has worked best for my drive. An aggregate is a mixture of different sizes that pack down to form a hard, stable surface. Drives that I've seen that have...
These are cheap alternatives to replacing the entire muzzle:
I know of someone who makes replacement disks for their...
Farnum roll on fly repellent, applied frequently and liberally, has always worked for me.
Would something like this work:
Maybe held in place with fence staples?
I've taken to naming my cats where I find them: BARNey, ROADster, PARKer.
A local carpenter made the litter box cover/bench and did a wonderful job. It's sturdy enough to sit and stand on.
Yes, I provide litter boxes. (Hopefully) I've attached a picture of the litter box. It's in a bench that's open on both ends with a hinged lid that can be raised.
