    Long as it is disclosed upfront, I don't see the problem. I've looked at barns with similar setups, and it sure didn't bother me. Usually they were barns with limited spots, so they wanted to bring...

    Not crazy about it either. With the full width displayed, it is too small to comfortably read. Then if I enlarge it to read, I have to scroll left to right to see everything, and that's annoying.

    I've seen a trainer in a clinic tell someone they should buy a tennis racket. They were not kidding. Tactless, but it was also true!

    Interesting. We have an umbrella policy through State Farm and they are well aware of my having and transporting horses (including insuring the trailer). But I don't show, so that's one difference,...

    I have often ordered up one size in wug. Depends on the horse. If large shoulders, broad chest - definitely order up. For me, it isn't that the reg vs. wug are different lengths, but how they fit at...

    For the rail products like I have, Centaur recommends 9-11" between rails, so I'm betting the recommendation is similar for the single strand stuff (White Lightning) -- I did a quick look at the...

    Just looked up some of my past test results, and I've had iron come in as low as 303 ppm and high as 657 ppm for teff (6 different batches, all from Central or Eastern OR/WA). I also had one that...

    I am not an expert by any means, but I can't imagine the species of grass will affect the iron levels as much as other factors (fertilizer or water applied). So again, tests of the specific hay are...

    Honestly, you'd be better off just pulling samples and testing yourself. I've tested teff hay several times as I test all my hay, and I could share results with you, but it really won't tell you...

    If the worker has been there that long, you aren't going to change a habit like that. And I can't imagine the BO isn't aware it happens, unless every person who has ever boarded there is an idiot...

    We don't get snow often enough to do pads, so I've used cooking spray with mixed results in the past. Ski wax...I'm going to try that. Maybe if I buy some and put it in the tack room, that will...

    I'd only go with a neck cradle if it was something that has to stay on, like a wrap over an injured leg or similar. What kind of bib is it? I've had better luck with the hard plastic one than the...

    That goat story is a reminder why you don't want leg straps on mares with foals.

    I actually feel the Amigos fit similar to the Rambo, just a little less roomy in the drop (side to side). The only Amigos I have are the 600d sheet for warm/showery days and fly sheets. Otherwise my...

    I had some pretty bad reactions to spring shots here so when we did WNV and flu/rhino boosters, vet did bute for the ones that could have it and banamine for the one that can't have bute. So his...

    Our house and barn were painted with Sherwin Williams 13 and 9 years ago, respectively. I have been very disappointed in the paint durability, and we had problems with it on the house from the very...

    I've had vets tell me to go ahead and walk under saddle for certain injuries and horses, and also had them specifically say NOT to for others -- only hand walking for them. So I've done both, and if...
