    In the upper midwest we called it the hay mow, and in Washington I've only heard loft.

    Every bay horse I've owned has been sensible, brave and liked to work. I love how roans and grays look, though.

    It is a lot of work- smaller properties are more work because you have to manage with smaller equipment and find places for everything, rotate pastures etc. It's harder to keep things tidy if you...
