    I leased a hackney cross as my first medium pony (Proud n' Happy, anyone from the Midwest?? Early to mid 1980s??) She was a fabulous pony, and a very good jumper. I say go for it. She was so...

    I hear you are not a fan of greasy, but nothing works quite like chicken fat. Roast yourself a chicken, and spend a little time pulling the meat off the bones. Then, you have a few tasty meals, as...

    SS - got to see you ride in Mason City! You did beautifully in the Prix. My trainer (Amy Hunter) came in 3rd behind you (woot!). So fun to put a face with a name. Congrats!

    We use something called the "Yooper Mouse Trap" which is essentially a 5 gallon bucket and RV antifreeze. Works like a charm. To construct, you will need a 5 gallon bucket, RV antifreeze, peanut...

    How awful. I remember relishing watching her ride at all the shows in Ohio when I was a kid -- my trainer used to encourage us to watch her, and she always commented that Pam was "the total package"...
  6. Acquiring an Antares used from the childrens trade in program?

    I've tried to find information about this on the site, but have been unsuccessful thus far. I suspect many of those would be really wee, but not all, surely? I am a petite adult, and would like to...

    I struggle with this too. I liked the way that Antares fit you -- your position looked good, and I think the flap was the right size! I am 5' tall and ride in a 16 with a STRAIGHT flap and a knee...

    We came into an astoundingly large pile of wood, and the hubs made two Holz Hausens and two traditional piles (and I made a giant, tarp covered scattered pile...) to determine which works best for...

    We're not snowbirds (yet... :) ) but we have a farmer who works the fields, and a company that plows our driveway so we can get in. It's a pretty low maintenance place, otherwise. We have...

    Farmette near Phoenix?

    During Polar Vortex I and II, Mr. SF and I were discussing the idea of becoming snowbirds. Our little farm in WI was to be our final home, but we're starting to think that maybe we should plan for a...

    I second the Cherry Hill books! I am looking to build a small barn and arena on our farmette, and have learned so much poring over her books!!

    I have a horse like this. She loads somewhat reluctantly (but safely), is claustrophobic, and has a definite opinion of the TB mare variety. She hauls loose in a halter and head bumper in a stock...

    I love crochet backs, but surprisingly, these machine washable gloves are kind of awesome. Not a classic look, but for around the barn and riding, not a bad deal!

    Totally agree with this. We smear the peanut butter on the bucket handle, but same idea. But this works well, and is non toxic, and reusable.

    I should have clarified. Hubby is *obsessed* with the generator (we will likely go with propane) so that is totally happening. Perhaps I am a little bonkers in wondering what I would do if the...
