    Wait til it dries, if nothing else because the equipment will dig deep ruts in the earth.

    If it's too awful to even turn them out, I suppose you could spread a load of stone around the...

    Sometimes the VFD guys are available for hire "off the books". It's a courtesy to let nearby neighbors know before your burn, and never a bad idea to bring over a pie or bottle of wine in advance...

    If they were alongside the road: raccoons often cross the road in family groups. Not at all uncommon to see multiples killed in the same spot. That, or maybe coyotes stashing their kills?

    Good point! I'm in east central-- not far from Iowa City.

    My folks live in NJ, and I'll be visiting there this spring, so maybe I'll take a side-trip to Bevals.

    We have a swingout glass door, and no drips at all. The door has a clear silicone thingy on the bottom edge, that channels the drips back into the shower.

    A slightly frosted glass would help...

    we bought the grill and door kit, but built the structure and walls ourselves. We used ARC stalls, and are super happy with them. The owner was really helpful, even cut the stalls to custom lengths...

    Thanks for the followup. I'd like to just add my insane jealousy of those who live where there are tack stores where you can try boots on. Living in the boondocks sucks when it comes to shopping...

    ouch. i guess all you can do is try to warm it, somehow someway. Pull other arm out of coatsleeve, allowing you to pull the coat down around that hand that's stuck to the gate then blow on it,...

    As someone else said, believing that "S" is coming in to say hello is a mindset that you need to change. He's not saying hello. He is not doing it because he loves you and wants your affection. He...

    How about this:
    1. Google a list of state parks with equestrian trails, for the states you are willing to consider. That list seems fairly set in stone, based on climate (i.e. nothing above...

    I had the zip-us barnyard and agree they have a wider feel. For me, it was a bit too boxy-- I felt like I had to wear thicker socks otherwise my foot moved around too much (and I don't have narrow...

    " So once spring thaw happens, there's gonna be some random piles all over. Oh well. That's spring me's problem. "

    Winter me and Spring me. I cannot stop laughing at this concept. So apt.

    The assumption that the kid is pretending to go to the barn and lying to the parent is bothering me a bit. OP don't let this solidify in your mind as if it's a fact, b/c it does not sound like you...

    I'm firmly in the MYOB camp. What does it really matter if the horse is in shape or not? I'd understand a concern if the rider were coming out once every few months and cantering the horse into the...
