    I've used them. They were free and I put them down thick- like over a foot thick. Depending on the area, they lasted anywhere from a few months to over a year. They didn't make any more of a mess...

    Joists.

    The building's manufacturer will have the snow and wind ratings for it's buildings. Simply ask them. If you choose the DIY route and order trusses, you can specify the wind and load rating...

    IIRC, cheeks to the inside rings, reins to the outside. I didn't set up the bridle, my trainer did. It was just a plain bit- rings were the same size, and I'm almost positive the bit I used was...

    I start everything in a plain ol' half-cheek snaffle. Nearly everything gets ridden to begin with in either that same half-cheek or a snaffle with a copper roller I picked up somewhere many years ago...

    I think it's an unusual request. As a rule, I don't worry about gloom and doom liability issues, but I wouldn't touch this situation with a ten foot pole. You'd have responsibility for likely 50k+ in...

    I vote extroverted introvert. I'm quite comfortable in social situations and have a lot of fun, but I'm even happier to be alone.

    And then there's "born broke"... that rare creature that from the time they're babies, anything new you ask of them is not a big deal and they act as if they've been doing whatever (from picking up...

    Now that I'm old? Nope. I'm not crazy about riding when it's 45 degrees in an indoor. But when I was younger I'd ride in anything. Galloping bareback through snow is a blast. In heavy wet slushy...

    Eh... my water buckets get dumped a couple/few times a week, and they're "scrubbed" with a handful of hay. More often when it's hot in the summer. I've never been at a barn (including several BNTs)...

    Something in writing would be nice, but I'd just move my horse home without 30 days notice and let the chips fall where they may. I certainly wouldn't want to be in the middle of what may go down.

    What they all said. And some horses just won't "equitate". My mare is a grand little show horse that's easy to ride, loves her job, and rarely puts a foot out of place. Somebody once asked about...

    My stalled horses get fed twice a day. My outside horses, who have access to round bales, get grain once a day- usually in the morning, but sometimes in the evening if it's more convenient for us,...

    I used to have access to a dump trailer to borrow. I never used it for manure, just green sawdust. I think it was 6x12. I loved how easy it was to get and unload bedding in that thing! Anyway, l...

    I have no problem keeping several on less than 50k/yr. One is in full training. Granted, I have my own farm and we raise our own hay. My mortgage is less than most people's car payment and I'm pretty...

    I can't imagine riding my horse for a half hour before a class let alone several hours, but I want my horses breathing fire. I'd rather have them on the edge of disaster than tired and boring. I've...

    One time I was extremely happy I had duals. I was pulling a very unbalanced load of lumber and it started to sway, hard! I could feel and hear the duals chirping on the pavement and I was only going...

    Inside my main barn door, over the wash rack, I have a "night light". It's just a really cheap fixture with a fluorescent bulb in it that's hard wired to be constantly on. It's plenty of light to...

    Yup, welding supply place. That's where we got all the steel for welding out stall grates as well as other stuff. Best thing to do is actually visit the store so you can see the different gauges of...

    Any time I've given my horses warm water, they wait until it's cold before they touch it so I don't even bother trying to be nice anymore! Maybe your pony doesn't like warm water either. Other things...

    I wouldn't jump to the abused conclusion. I've had both horses and dogs that I've raised since birth- so I know there is no abuse history- that act super sensitive to certain things. Just like...

    My hay flakes will vary in weight somewhat, depending on the field and baling conditions. I have never weighed my hay on a scale. I can tell by picking up the flakes how much each horse needs....

    I've cantered lots and lots of horses in 60' wide arenas, including one with stalls in the middle as you described. It's really not an issue. I'm not a big fan of the middle stall set up (they're...

    Used(?) Cen-flex fence

    I saw a Craigslist ad for 3 1/2 rolls of fence plus 120 brackets and what looked like a few tensioners. It looked a little dirty, but the rolls looked tight, not sure if it's used or not, the ad...
