    Other posters are right in that bed/hitch weight is going to be a factor & never forget to include loaded weight that is NOT horses (water, tack, hay, people, gear).

    Also, I obviously chose the...

    Haven't read the book. But find it kind of odd that it would be "revelation." Actually really odd -- sure, there are regional variations around the world in pasture availability, but I've never...

    Don't feel bad at all -- I've found that tractors are a lot like horses: right when you think, "I'M SO AWESOMELY BADA$$, I CAN DO ALL THE THINGZ!!" is approximately when the tiniest edge of the...

    Skimmed replied & you have great advice already. Safety is DEFINITELY important, always wear the seatbelt & always have a ROPS.

    Surprisingly, in intense heat/humidity of Carolina summers, no mold. They're weather-tight if you take the time to follow ALL assembly directions for joints & mine's been hurricane'd, ice storm-d,...

    ROFL, you better tell him to think carefully before he takes on the hella spin Solo inherited from his QH half! He may only have one good leg left, but Solo has never subscribed to the idea that you...

    I just wanted to say thanks for sharing this (and hope you are feeling better soon!) --

    This is such a very important lesson. I grew up hearing "always get back on" & "never give up," etc. Then...

    It's really an undercover art form! I thought it was just "longeing with two lines" until someone who knew what they were doing taught me the feel & the incredible versatility of two lines & a...

    I absolutely use water heaters -- but I am very picky about which ones for safety & longevity. I'm poor, so one at a time but have used the heated muck tub size (the $70 model that only feels...

    Do I get to count it as an "I did something!!" update if I not only added 2nd strand, but added 5 posts & got all insulators up...but ran out of tape on the spool 3 posts from the end? Hey, there's...

    Warning: his face is lethally adorable, as in you'll begin plotting horse-napping immediately! ;)

    Horses never cease to amaze me (in this context, in a good way, LOL!) -- y'all are my lighthouse: whenever I start to get too despondent about our backslide due to life being life, I think about you...

    Definitely not -- digging into my brief experience long ago with wetland delineation/soil classification/analysis (shudder, omg, who knew there were so many kinds of dirt, even if "gley" is a really...

    This may already have been stated, but a dually is most often the same thing as a 1-ton. So your question is do you want a single-rear wheel or dual-rear wheel 1-ton?

    Good answers on what the...

    I'm an incredibly visually oriented person, so I'm all about mental images (omg, I love Sally Swift & her pictures!!).

    Everyone's brain works differently (thank goodness, LOL), but my image is...

    Navy is fine (and I agree with poster who finds putting light colours on horses insane as they turn it dirt coloured immediately, LOL). :-) I have the old one too -- I may be a fashion faux-pax as...

    Congrats on your boy, what a journey!! I hope we can figure out a way to rejoin you this year!

    Probably stating the obvious (and not ignoring soils, etc, I dug holes in every property I looked at) -- the right mix of region-appropriate vegetation and management plays as much, sometimes even...

    I still love my Ecogold triple-layer half pad more than life.

    ETA -- I don't usually buy saddle pads that cost more than $15, but one weird shaped horse meant some pressure points we wrestled with...

    Hahaha, it's not just me! I totally zip-tied one of the black tensioners to a t-post about a month ago because the screws were in the house, but I had some HD zip ties for tractor hydraulic hoses.

    Super cheapie, made by SunForce. I think HomeDepot & lots of other places sell them if you google "solar shed light." And I was wrong, manual says 4 hrs on battery. It's not "detailed farrier...
