    Claustrophobia is a funny thing. I was afraid to even look, thinking it might have lasting effects. When I am bothered, I am REALLY bothered! But that looks like a piece of cake. Everything above...

    This morning, the rain water trough was down by 4 or 5 inches and the new fresh one was untouched. They do it to mess with my mind. That's the best conclusion I can come to... :D

    I only see two possible gaps:
    - Do you trust them to do the pasture work without you there? There's no real way of knowing this except building trust with them, but I've boarded at a place where...

    I work at home, on a laptop, in a recliner! For all sorts of reasons, the main one being that it really helps my back. But the side effect is that I go from having a limited lap to having ample...

    If you REALLY want/need a spotty baby, you'd have to breed to a homozygous tobiano stallion. With a QH parent, she herself is NOT homozygous, so all the spotty babies she has had are just the toss...

    I have the feeder, for one thing! I also do have small-hole hay nets but the feeder could fit an entire bale, and any amount of chore reduction would be most appreciated.
