    I think I'm on my third summer with a couple of Durafans from qcsupply.com. Now, we don't run them nearly as much as you southern and eastern folks, I'm sure, since we don't usually get long heat...

    I'd probably do the perimeter fencing in the way that you want it, as that is where you'll spend the most $ and have to live with it for the longest time. Then replace the electrobraid with another...

    No notice required, if they are so drastically changing the terms of the agreement. I wonder how long the BO knew this caretaker was leaving, and sat on that information? I'd be moving my horse as...

    The website still works and seems reasonably up to date, so I think they are still around?

    For every story like yours, there are a 100 more when the horse turned out to be worse than thought, cost a fortune to try fixing, never went back to work, etc. You just ended up being super...

    The one I described in previous post (lives outside in our pretty extreme winds) is also aluminum with fiberglass top.

    I have a bull leather Stabilizer, and it was never slippery, even brand new. I was not a fan of the Innovation, but did own one for awhile to fit a particular horse. Also bull, also never slippery. I...

    We do four feedings, skipping lunch for the ones that have pasture (IR horse on dry lot gets lunch). Right now we do 6:30 am, noon, 5 pm, 10:30 pm....varies a bit with the season and light.

    Yes, but that's for e-mail that is pretending to be from Paypal -- I think at this point, the OP is just getting e-mail inquiries on the saddle, saying they want to use Paypal to pay. Of course, it...

    I don't bother answering those. Anything saying courier is a scam. No questions relevant to saddle fit? Scam. No request for photos? Scam. I'm really disappointed in my latest tacktrader.com listing...

    I feel badly for the HO - she did lose her horse, after all - but so glad that this lawsuit was not allowed to go forward. Having it resolved fairly quickly like this has to be a relief for the BO....

    I also find that gloves help, so my hands don't get scraped up while stuck between boot and hoof. I pretty much wear gloves all the time working around the barn and horses (I have this aversion to...

    I only use the gum ones as I find they don't rub as bad as the opaque types. And they do stretch more to help in putting on. Only time I have a super hard time getting them on is if they are too...

    Answering unknown to those two questions makes me think the real answer is no, but they don't want to put that down.

    Permits do matter, as permits would also indicate that work was inspected as...

    I have one that has been bad about wind for years, and he lives here on my hill near the mouth of the (windsurfing mecca) Columbia River Gorge, where we get some extreme wind. The two barns I boarded...

    I have a friend with a metal sided barn and horses access all sides. Been that way for years and she's had a collection of retired horses with no problem, until...she found her horse earlier this...

    My wash rack is lined with tongue and groove wood - the "nice" stuff that is used for decks, so smooth and pretty. We sealed with an outdoor wood sealer from Sikkens that added very little color as I...

    I got the same picture for both links? So not sure if I'm seeing the overboard one or not (seemed overboard to me, but everything about the 4th is!).

    There is a reason you see bumper stickers here that say "Keep Portland Weird!"

    Wonder if this incident will show up in an episode of Portlandia?:lol:

    The website just came up fine for me? jumpsusa.com
    Shows number as 800-880-3034. Doesn't sound like others have had much luck contacting them, however.

    I thought it was admirable of the horse's breeder to volunteer to take him back to live out the rest if his life there. I can't condemn the family for selling him on. Sounds like he was still racing...

    Way back when I actually showed, we did colors for derby day, but it was coordinated so you'd have navy braids with a navy coat, or both hunter green...nothing too crazy. The colored yarn really does...
