    I threw hay at lunch. In a silk-blend sweater and heels. AND didn't get dirty, cleared the five foot fence and made it into the tub five feet into the paddock.

    I am very proud.

    I do not want to be Debbie downer, but I don't like the sound of that horse for you.

    You want a more finished horse and one that is SOUND in work. Maybe a western horse you turn English or that...

    All I keep thinking is that twins are going to be so much work. And it will get worse once they start crawling.

    I think you can make an offer to take the dog as something for her to consider if...

    Doesn't DE work on fleas? Because it is so sharp or dries their bodies out or something? I remember I got a bag when I got chickens and then actually did more research (found out it was basically...

    I've never heard of this, is there a link?

    Rubber can create dust too (eventually). I have seen black dust.

    Off the top of my head, I'm loving the behind the scenes articles they are doing on the top show horses right now. I think it is interesting for people to identify with the quirks of each animal. ...

    This sounds like a foundation problem, and possible water in basement problem... My last home was a 70 year old house and it had none of those issues...meaning I don't think that's normal settling.

    OP, some more thoughts for you. My young horse has been sitting. She was very, very green however. I won't go into all the details here, but if you can continue to board that one it might be...

    Stripping/un locking the ends of the fence to get the "strings" I needed to wrap to tension were the worst part of no climb, imo. So if you come up with a faster way to do that, let me know.

    One of my dobes is not brave around men, it's a weakness in him, but with that it means he barks quite fiercely and for people who don't know better, looks like a badass. It has been great when we...

    There is really no way to answer the income question. What works for the trail rider doesn't work for the competition rider. Indoor vs. outdoor? Taxes? Are you servicing a bunch of student loans,...

    Lots of good advice, just commenting to say I get by fine without a tractor, because we rent a skid 2x a year to do the heavy jobs. I know I can't upkeep, much less pay for a tractor for $300 a year...
  14. Fly boots opinions please. Also reviews of the Shoo Fly Leggings?

    I saw these http://shooflyleggins.com/ in Omaha last weekend and was impressed with everything but the price. They have built-in boning/stays, which I think they need, to keep upright. Does anyone...

    Grooved mats no shavings. I did something so stupid, I hauled to the vet clinic and she pooped and came off. I didn't pick the poop before re-loading and she slipped, kicking herself badly behind. ...

    I agree with you. I don't like any wider than 10' personally.

    Do you feel the 9' width would give a farrier enough room to work? I would like mine to do double duty. The other thought is I...

    The last place I boarded my horse had a private half acre +. That was, I imagine, on the extravagant side for most private turnout. The adjoining runs were about 30'x75' with the back 16' (so...

    My ceiling is 10' at the very back and then slopes higher. Additionally the ground slopes down towards the front. I don't know if I would feel comfortable with a tall horse in there if it was 10'...
