    There is a COTHer who did that with a wood top post and Horseguard tape. Looks nice.
  4. Has anyone added on to an existing outdoor arena?

    The small arena thread has me thinking. I know the actual grading work can be found reasonably locally. A friend did a huge roping arena and the grading was 4k. He had about a 7 foot difference...

    There is a half mile of four board pvc fencing on an acreage along the hwy that I drive into town on every day and it looks terrible against the snow. The snow really shows how dirty the pvc is. ...

    State Farm for everything. My husband's dad was in the military, but I don't think that makes us eligible for USAA, does it?

    Dropped All State when I got those vicious Dobermans. ;-) They are...

    Yes there are pull behind mowers. Swisher, DR, etc. Absolutely you could do your pasture with a pull behind mower and a gator. The drawback is gasoline for both (not really a big deal, imo). If...

    What would impact the foal paper-wise, as already mentioned, is if you are not able to register it. In other words, if you use a stallion (or mare) who is not approved for the cross.

    I don't think...

    I have definitely heard the "never let go." This post was a good reminder. I have almost broken my arm or tore my shoulder a couple times loading when a horse (not mine either time) decided to fly...

    I think you would fence after. Give the equipment as much room as possible.
    That said, on the long side of where I want to put my arena it is already fenced and I hope I can keep that fencing (no...

    Your list just terrifies me (showidaho). There are no "arena builders" where I live. There are just people who have dirt work done by either builders or road crews.

    This was a great train wreck.

    Don't disappear! I want to know if the horse's ankle/fetlock was ok or not?

    FWIW I know it's a fetlock, but I call them ankles too. LOL.

    Reading this thread I'm amazed our bank let us buy our acreage! The exterior of the house was in tough shape. The deck wasn't missing boards, as in this case, it was completely rotten, etc.

    I feed alfalfa pellets for the above reason (they get all the forage they want) and I like that the pellets break down quickly when soaked vs. the cubes. I did just read on Standlee's site (even...

    Are you buying a horse on the ground or breeding? If breeding Bon Balou is dead, so you would be forced to use frozen, if that is a consideration for your mare.

    Yes, I know inadequate ventilation and frost bite go hand in hand, but it happened. The coop is very well ventilated (indirect airflow).

    I'm having a hard time picturing your set up, but I can tell you what I do. I have very little time during the day with work. I also don't have a tractor, so I feed small bales. It takes about 5...
