    If I were going to spend ~20 on a new car, I'd get another Jetta diesel. Mine's a '98 with around 200k miles. If the new ones are anything like the old ones, it has a huge trunk and plenty of...

    You can also use 3/4" Schedule 80 PVC conduit. I saw it used in a barn- it had been up for 20+ years with no issues. DH also used it in stall fronts for a low budget customer. They've held up great...

    Concrete, smooth finish, painted. I would have loved to have colored concrete but it was more than I wanted to spend. I have a small pile of extra laminate that I'd like to put in the 1/2 bath and...

    Maybe, but nutritionists aren't always correct.

    I saw an increase in weight on not just one, but several of my horses when nothing changed except the Diamond V. It wasn't an overnight change,...

    Have you tried being mean? You know, going off on a tirade at the old bat? It wouldn't be my first choice as I prefer to stay on good terms with people, but sometimes you just gotta hurt some...

    Horse related stuff is about the only thing I write checks for anymore. If I pay trainer before he sends out bills, I don't get one in the mail unless there's show/other fees that there's no way for...

    I feed Diamond V yeast (which is apparently a pre-biotic, not a pro-biotic) nearly all the time. My horses do well on it, requiring less feed to maintain or gain weight. I tried it just for kicks...

    I can't believe more people aren't admitting to driving while intoxicated. It didn't used to be the big deal it is now. In college I drove with a buzz more times than I care to admit. I didn't drive...

    If I had maintained lawn up to the road edge, I wouldn't want you riding on it either. It might be nice and dry today where your horse won't leave divots, but next time maybe not. Maybe it's legal,...

    That could work, but if they're anything like AAA, you could be waiting hours for help. As much as I hate to change tires, I'd rather fix it and be back on the road ASAP.

    For an injection like you're describing, I think I'd want heavier sedation. But the vet is ultimately the one who decides how much to give.

    We've got one of these for at home, they're always on sale for $69. It's heavy but I could get it in and out of the trailer if I needed to. It works fine on our gravel driveway.

    At least they have halters on! I've worked with several like this. 10 minutes a couple of times a day usually does the trick. Just lead them, brush on them and work on picking up feet. They'll come...

    I'm not denying that pits can be ill-tempered, but neither should you deny that Boxers aren't always perfect family dogs that don't bite. A friend had a Boxer she had to euth because she was afraid...

    I've got a couple of Rubbermaid plastic trash cans I've had for probably 15 years. I needed a couple more and I cringed at paying $30 for a trash can. I bought a couple of used 55 gallon drums for...

    I've known more unstable Boxers than unstable pit bulls. I wouldn't own a Boxer- I like my cats alive.

    I picked up a starved pit on the side of the road once. She was a fantastic dog that was...

    Love round bales- no daily schlepping of hay to outside horses. Mine are stored outside so they look pretty nasty. A couple of winters ago we were running short on squares so we peeled off the outer...

    I had a 96' F250 SRW with well over 200K on it when the automatic transmission started to fail. I think we also had the starter rebuilt. Have a '99 dually now, standard tranny. It's got about 130K...

    Ehh... I did. The first one was green, the second one was an untrained 2 year old. I hadn't been riding long when Mom decided she's let me have a horse. I had only taken random (poor quality) lessons...

    I do the same thing. I think they understand the finality of it, rather than just wondering when their buddy is coming home.

    I'll drink either- diet versions only. But if the two are side by side, I'll reach for the Coke first.

    Dr. Pepper is freaking disgusting.

    Actually, we were taught NOT to use the DG site because of the potential for sciatic nerve injury. I've been out of school a bit over 3 years.
