    I'm with you-- although I keep the dogs crated inside when it's 100 degrees and humid, I think they prefer to be outside whenever possible so they can be in the thick of things! My three GSDs are in...

    We did concrete with an old rubber stall mat over a portion so the dogs have a place to lay down. Also have a cover and dog house. I tried pea gravel for several years -- the dogs would dig in it and...

    This one just opened. Haven't been there myself, but the prices look reasonable.

    Fun, but still stylized. Looks like the photographer chose to show only food-trash. No shots of families with toddler/s... and diapers. Or diabetics with needles (much more difficult to dispose of)....

    What Bluey said. Then we attached the 'mesh sandwich' to the front end loader of the tractor, backed up to tension it and raised/lowered the bucket to get the fence at the right angle. Nail it, and...

    I don't think they are interested in the salt. Cobalt is one of the bees favorite colors -- allegedly they like purple, violet and blue best and can't see red at all. I painted my new hive cobalt.

    We just replaced a portion of our perimeter fence with the Red Brand stuff. No immediate feedback but I was impressed with the quality of the wire and the speed of installation. I don't think the V...

    Mine is in because, well, I hope to never buy another one, but if you can't get yours under cover I would invest in tire covers (Wally World or your local car supply place) and at least cover the...

    Apparently he is now in Louisa County and running ads on the Richmond CL.

    Late to the party here but I have to say I'm enjoying this thread. It has elements of a SlenderMan story, if I do say so, but in the 'spirit' of things...

    Had this same problem with my F350 and Kieferbuilt GN 3H. Ended up taking the trailer to a welding company that essentially raised the trailer off it's frame a few inches and rewelded it. IIRC it...

    One of my goofball German Shepherd puppies did this. Goes like this: horse puts head into bucket. Thick mane (or collar, if you are my puppy) catches bale/handle and when she tries to back out,...

    It's not you. Don't buy live plants from Michigan Bulb, Gurneys or Spring Hill. You are paying too much for really inferior stock. I learned that lesson the hard way. Pretty much the only thing that...

    Yes, and blowing the dust/schmutz out of the barn aisleway. And the sidewalk to the arena. And the concrete pad in front of the round pen. In fact if I had to do all that with a rake/broom (which I...

    I've donated money to these guys in the past and done a bit of fundraising to try to get others to donate as well, particularly when they got a big batch of pasos in a few years ago...

    Sometimes the BO is doing this because the 'nicer' stalls aren't just nicer, they are also more sturdy and capable of standing up to shenanigans and escape attempts from, say, a stallion. Or a...

    Better make it a double-wide suit because I'm with you. We don't do boarding, but for long-term training horses -- most of whom are in the 3-7 age range -- we actually deliberately move them around...

    I *am* in Northern VA and am aiming for the Biltmore 30 in September for my first LD ride on my Paso mare. Right now we're doing longish trail rides and practicing on the slowing down part, since she...

    Actually you can buy the K12 courses and use them for homeschooling or you can enroll in one of the online public schools that uses K12 curriculum for free. They aren't available in every state, so...

    I'm coming at this from the mom perspective, not the trainer perspective, so bear with me. I have three daughters, all of whom learned to ride. Only one of them is really a rider per se. The other...

    Definitely a coyote. I had exactly the same impression of the one I saw lo these many years ago (I might have an excuse since we had both red and grey foxes here... what was a yellow one?). You will...

    We have a Barnmaster barn. The stall walls stand on a 'ribbon' of concrete. We put fine gravel inside the 'frame' created by the concrete and then interlocking mats on top. We use minimal bedding...

    Yeah, like ours. Remember all the 1940-50s cowboy movies where they broke horses just like that? Admittedly it was usually in a corral, at least for Hollywood purposes, but America used to celebrate...

    have you tried just turning it to "warm" and leaving it alone all day? Mine has two settings. "High" boils. "warm" doesn't"
