    I have a horse measuring stick, cement barn aisle, and do measure a horse when we sell one. Folks ALWAYS say he is much larger (often a hand more) when they come to look! You can't win on the...

    If I am not finding problems, checked bales for foreign plants they can't eat, then the blame swings to the horse or myself, for feeding them more than they can consume.

    Oh yeah, I would expect that to happen. She probably has not gotten herself "regulated" yet with the change, so may be cycling erratically. Not only the longer daylight hours will affect her, but...

    Wow, I would be calling someone else if I got a consistant 10% bad bales in my hay loads. In most cases, I would not expect to have more than 5 bad bales in a LARGE load of hay, 400-500 bales on the...

    You might go to the house, make noise to chase them OUT of house, then fix the holes. You DO NOT want a squirrel trapped inside, because they can create a LOT of damage. We had one get inside in a...

    Our horses have LOVED the hay with the drying agent used on it! Those bales have a definite smell, rather like pickles since the agent has a vinegar base. The hay seems to never lose any of the...

    Not sure about the above posters, but locally any outside water line NEEDS to be down 6ft at the least. If line runs under a driveway, the barnyard that gets driven on, you probably want to go down...
