    My dad has the Ramm fencing that must be 15 years old now and still...

    You will be able to get a great deal if you will accept pull ons (you are hinting you prefer that?) Many sets of those for wonderful deals available, everyone wants the zippers these days. I have...

    We used to have a 4h with LQ and I miss it. I have a 2h GN now and wish I had the 4h back. It wasn't that hard to drive. I started driving it on my 16th birthday and pulled it all over the East...

    I agree with you, LH. I just think of all the animals they could have helped with that $$. It is wasteful. And often cruel.

    It is like those "rescues" that keep foundered horses going forever...

    If I was passing on a horse I would give X Rays. They have 0 value to me. But many people want to recoup. I personally don't see the point in that, if I don't want the horse I am not going to use...

    Don't, it will decompose. Crushed stone, after you've scraped out the mud.

    Forgot, OP: These make great turnout halters. Thin, easy to find yours, will break in a problem, and very affordable. They run big. I have a few of them I use around the barn when I don't want to...

    Yes, my horses in grazing muzzles use my Nelsons just fine. You would probably want the larger size bowls if your horses wear larger than "horse" size Best Friends muzzles. Those will fit but...

    what about the rest of it? They can catch a halter anywhere. I have only seen nice thick Quillins so maybe that would work if the nose and throat and everything are also single ply etc. Except...

    I love my Tack Shack of Ocala halters. However I wouldn't turn out in them, they are very sturdy. I would get something very cheap and flimsy if I absolutely had to turn out in a halter. Any of...

    Well, I just got back in from the barn. Did my chores and rode two horses. My fitbit says "21,982 steps" right now. I was well over 10k before I got on the first horse. So, it's not nothing, all...

    Cleaning the barn is way better than walking because you lift a lot more, IME. I have pretty good muscles from barnwork! I was comparing notes with my Crossfit friends -- I can easily do as much or...

    My barn routine usually takes me 90 minutes to 2 hours and I usually hit my 10,000 steps on my Fitbit by the time I am done. But I don't think it is that aerobic. It is a different kind of fit than...

    I'm not sure it will be super easy to find someone to consistently work with a retired horse. I guess it might depend on how big the barn is, if there are a lot of lesson people it might be much...

    It is always a good idea to install every waterer on a separate valve so you can shut it off with a twist of a wrist in case of emergency. $5 well spent. Hope I never use it, like knowing it is...

    I am sorry you had that experience! I have found them really helpful in the past but maybe I got lucky to get such good service.
