    If you are talking Brookledge, they quoted something like double anyone else for the haul I was investigating. Also with no firm timeframe. I figured it was out of the way for them and/or they didn't...

    I think they also factor in other trips they are making and expected cargo. I had a horse shipped a similar distance last year (~2,000 miles) and the range of quotes from different shippers was...

    Video of one of mine. I recognize that jolly ball as one that I bought back when State Line Tack was closing all their little stores (in Petsmart, weren't they?) and I...

    For flies, we do as you do and keep manure picked up and composted. I use fly predators and fly traps (placed away from horses -- so out on perimeter of property to pull the flies away from barn and...

    I don't think the target (coyote) is worth arguing about here and surprised that some of you are. It really doesn't matter what the guy was shooting at. Shooting in to another property without...

    I just left it as cut -- I start with a super sharp knife then use some bandage scissors to sort of smooth it out.

    We've done the same thing with the smaller jolly balls for the dogs - - cut a...

    I really wanted 100 x 200 when we started looking at building here, but our terrain wouldn't support it without a lot of major excavation and $$$. So I ended up with 80 x 160 and I'm mostly okay with...

    Yes, near the bottom but not exactly at the bottom, so when I hang it up, the treats stay in til they shake it.

    The Jolly Ball with a hole is something my horses have used for years. Loose or hung up, they all figure it out pretty easily. Cutting the hole can be difficult since Jolly Balls are so tough, so be...

    When I can get it, I have had mostly good experiences with feeding teff. While it is generally thought of as low NSC, that is not guaranteed -- you have to test. I have had it test as low as 7% NSC...

    Anyone I know of that has used wood chips or hog fuel in these parts (PNW) has regretted it. Same reasons as others mentioned above -- it retains moisture and breaks down too much. Definitely better...

    This is my impression as well. I did try it (desperation will cause you to put aside all common sense) on my IR/EMS guy and didn't notice anything different while he was on it, and no change when I...

    For the one user, few horse set up like mine, I don't worry about soap going out into the grass as I rarely use it. I probably wash my car more often than I do my horses (with soap). Most times, I'm...

    Where do your gutter/downspouts drain to? What we did when we added the wash rack in mine was to tie the wash rack drain into the pipes that took the gutter/downspout water away from the barn. So...

    I have used both the Pentosan and the Pentosan Gold from HPR with no issues. What needle were you using? I seem to recall reading that using short needles might result in swelling.

    There was...

    As a boarder, I want a routine. It might change somewhat with the seasons, since that influences the amount of light and weather conditions, but I like to know what the feed and turnout schedule is...

    We don't get snow often, so I don't get many opportunities to test things. But this last time, my horse that was getting horrible snow/ice balls did really well with ski wax applied a couple times a...

    I have a horse that will drink down whatever I bring in a bucket. Hot or cold, doesn't matter. He just likes it being delivered fresh to his face. So if I'm ever worried about him not drinking...

    Funny, that is the exact opposite of what I wrote on the other thread, when holding the two of them in front of me. But I also see someone in that thread mentioned that the Duo comes in different...

    Well, here is the old thread, but the picture links were to webshots, which is gone. And I don't have the pictures anymore - sorry. But perhaps the discussion on the thread will be helpful.

    I have had both in the past and I thought the Nathe was slightly thinner than the Duo, and a bit more flexible. There was an old thread on here about this same question and I posted a picture of them...

    I have had it required at one barn only. I don't think it is that unreasonable of a request myself, but I also am well insured.;)

    I'm using Pentosan Gold right now but keep forgetting to check the batch number to compare to this thread. No reactions at all so far. I've had good customer service from HPR in the past, so...

    That doesn't look like anything Rambo I've seen either - more like what Weatherbeeta or Pessoa use. If you take the blankets to a blanket repair person, they'll likely have the right stuff to fix it...
