    Not just for beginners. This happened at our breed Nationals when a woman was practicing in the main arena (well populated with male ammy owners and their male trainers) during the open hours. Her...

    DH is a professional trainer and 3rd generation vaquero and he and I have this debate all the time. I think Pony Club teaches the feet out-drop down method because little kids have a hard time...

    We went over to the Virginia Dominion facility on Meetze and got 4 used telephone poles from them. Trenched and ran the power from the barn. IIRC the trenching was the most expensive part. Welcome to...

    The whole attempt to 'recreate' the Spanish Jennet mystifies me. Paso x Appaloosa? Uh... one doesn't come with spots and the other one doesn't gait. http://spanishjennet.org/

    Can't tell where you are in VA but I'd start with your local EmbroidMe and see what they can do for you. First step of putting a logo on anything is to digitize it and produce a proof. You could have...

    I started my first hive this spring so not a true expert but it was about $500 worth of equipment + bees. I chose Italian bees, which are allegedly slightly less hardy, but a lot more mellow than the...

    I'm with you-- although I keep the dogs crated inside when it's 100 degrees and humid, I think they prefer to be outside whenever possible so they can be in the thick of things! My three GSDs are in...

    We did concrete with an old rubber stall mat over a portion so the dogs have a place to lay down. Also have a cover and dog house. I tried pea gravel for several years -- the dogs would dig in it and...

    Fun, but still stylized. Looks like the photographer chose to show only food-trash. No shots of families with toddler/s... and diapers. Or diabetics with needles (much more difficult to dispose of)....

    What Bluey said. Then we attached the 'mesh sandwich' to the front end loader of the tractor, backed up to tension it and raised/lowered the bucket to get the fence at the right angle. Nail it, and...

    I don't think they are interested in the salt. Cobalt is one of the bees favorite colors -- allegedly they like purple, violet and blue best and can't see red at all. I painted my new hive cobalt.

    We just replaced a portion of our perimeter fence with the Red Brand stuff. No immediate feedback but I was impressed with the quality of the wire and the speed of installation. I don't think the V...

    Mine is in because, well, I hope to never buy another one, but if you can't get yours under cover I would invest in tire covers (Wally World or your local car supply place) and at least cover the...

    Had this same problem with my F350 and Kieferbuilt GN 3H. Ended up taking the trailer to a welding company that essentially raised the trailer off it's frame a few inches and rewelded it. IIRC it...

    One of my goofball German Shepherd puppies did this. Goes like this: horse puts head into bucket. Thick mane (or collar, if you are my puppy) catches bale/handle and when she tries to back out,...

    It's not you. Don't buy live plants from Michigan Bulb, Gurneys or Spring Hill. You are paying too much for really inferior stock. I learned that lesson the hard way. Pretty much the only thing that...

    Yes, and blowing the dust/schmutz out of the barn aisleway. And the sidewalk to the arena. And the concrete pad in front of the round pen. In fact if I had to do all that with a rake/broom (which I...

    Sometimes the BO is doing this because the 'nicer' stalls aren't just nicer, they are also more sturdy and capable of standing up to shenanigans and escape attempts from, say, a stallion. Or a...

    Better make it a double-wide suit because I'm with you. We don't do boarding, but for long-term training horses -- most of whom are in the 3-7 age range -- we actually deliberately move them around...
