    I wouldn't switch; this seems to be a problem many of us have. I feed orchard grass/alfalfa, straight orchard grass, and brome. Every once in awhile I open a bale that looks great, smells great, and...

    Love my Asmar jacket! Bought it at a horse show a year ago and took it as my only coat to Italy…traveled all over for 2 weeks and despite some wicked rains, I was toasty and dry. It also looked...

    I use bagged, kiln dried shavings which are really absorbent. I take out the wet spot every day with a shovel from all stalls first, which gives them a bit of time to dry out. The stalls have mats....

    So sad…I know there are moments in my own barn when I'm here alone and I make a conscious choice to not do something, just in case. I have nothing but well-behaved horses, but if I'm holding a hind...

    We are always thinking about 'moving up'…but honestly we have 16 acres and it is the perfect size for us as we don't need a team to keep it managed. I'd like to have more of it in pasture, but with...

    Sorry to hear about your mare…how about rescuing a mini-donkey? Low maintenance, full of joy, and great watch 'dogs'!
  11. Building an indoor vs. covered arena?

    I am very lucky to have a husband that has suggested it might be time for an indoor, or at least a new covered arena. I am sure there are a million threads about this already, so I apologize for...

    I spent many summers down in the Northern Neck! Beautiful country. My cousins live down there and one niece is very much into horses and riding. I will ask them for recommendations. ...

    I believe one challenge for many trainers is that they have no clue how to initiate change in the rider. I have worked with two notable trainers who were and are total a**hats, who felt screaming,...

    My flat wedding band has diamond embedded within it, and it is always on. My engagement ring has a large center stone and side stones, and it never goes to the barn. I do wear gloves every day for...

    VFT and Schatzi, can you post pictures? Now I'm excited about a rebuild…!

    Hi - I push it back with a fence post that is long enough to get it up. it's not all that bad, actually, especially since I don't have to do it often. We purchased the aluminum roofing from a local...

    You could make that work, but you'd need very good hinges on the back wall so the movement and weight don't flip the roof over backwards. Alternatively, you can put the roof on rollers so it slides...

    I have a roof on mine that flips open for the first 5 feet of the shavings shed (the back is permanent)…it splits in the center (where there is an overlap to prevent water coming in) and then flips...

    I have your horse's twin here also! Stall walks to get to his 'cribbing-bar', trashes hay of all variety, including top grade alfalfa; tears down hay bags and poops on them. Love the idea of a hay...

    I put up the equivalent of shade structures…10 feet deep, 20 feet long, with a roofline probably 10 feet off the ground, with no sides at all. They use it to stay dry, and that's where I throw hay. ...
