    Wisconsin grows beautiful hay. It's the trade off for our winters!

    I want to say ours came in at less than $1k for all 3 vet visits he had within a month and all the various meds, but SO may have picked up one of the bills. Short version, we're doing kitty...

    He's bored and looking for things that interest him more than standing still in crossties or eating the same old dinner again. This may be a horse that needs 100% of your concentration when he's on...

    1970's ranch. Hate: we've taken out the carpet, drapes, most upholstered furniture, and opened up the floorplan somewhat. It ECHOES. Everything, even normal voices, is loud, especially barking...

    My horses are generally not accident prone, fwiw. For cuts, I will call the vet for anything that might need stitches, or punctures, especially near joints or soft tissue, or sudden severe lameness...

    I was just thinking about this last night. Last winter, when it was crazy cold, the pee spots froze almost as soon as the pee left the horse, so little mountains grew in the center of the stalls...

    Don't take it personally and don't (necessarily) give up. It's impossible to know how someone is going to react until you approach them. Watch, pay attention, don't necessarily trust her to do this...

    Yes! I'm eternally grateful to whoever raised our dog as a puppy, because she definitely knows the difference between a trip outside to play or get exercise and a "go potty" break.

    Here are a few things we've learned. Two of us, minimal data users with Android smartphones, rarely use as much as 1G of data a month. That put me down two notches from the plan they wanted to sell...

    I have absolutely nothing useful to add, but am imagining how cute and tiny she must be to get her Chaffhaye measured by the 1/4 cup and timothy cubes by the cup! that must be about 2 cubes! My old...

    A sheet of the blue or pink styrofoam insulation will float on the surface of your stock tank and insulate it a little, enough to help your tank heater and possibly get you through a little while of...

    Consider that she arrived early on purpose because she wanted to help you with a different kind of warmup. Maybe her assessment of your first couple lessons was something like, "this team needs to...

    Is the head flinging to remove the bridle based on fear/discomfort, or just habit or impatience? Different response for each. We've had horses who were in a hurry to pull out of the bridle because...

    Prune juice. Really. About a tablespoon twice a day. Our problem child has been getting it for about ten years and it is (almost) the only reason she is still alive.

    I know I had to memorize "All the World's a Stage" in high school and can do a really good job of murdering it now, especially the title which is actually something else, that I can't remember! We...

    My elderly Arab had it three times in the last several years of his life. But he's the only non-TB I can think of.

    I was reminded by a car repair guy to turn off all my accessories every time, and before shutting off the car, especially when it's very cold. Same guy also told me that heat is just as hard on...

    FrenchFry has some really good points and a lot of that has worked for me, too. I was in a similar situation to the OP when I was almost exactly that age. We had My Money, Your Money, and Our...

    I'd wonder WHY the variation, and if I understood the reason I'd probably be more ok with it. Do they bring horses in early when the weather is extreme or leave them out longer when it's nice out? ...

    We've been happy with Remission, and I believe it's a little less expensive than Quiessence.

    Consider it from their point of view. Animals safely confined in crates don't damage the room and don't bite their employees, or escape!

    What about bringing a collapsible, big wire dog crate (or...
