    Woodford and Simmons are both made in the USA.

    Most of the others are China. They are about half the price, but as you imply, saving $50 or $80 is not that exciting if it means digging through...

    Like others I don't think weeds are a big deal. As long as you already have a tractor to tow a drag with ongoing maintenance is not much of a problem. I drag about once a week and spray the fence...

    You seem to have dangerous ideas about how to behave in an emergency situation. I hope you continue to be lucky enough to not not be harmed by them.

    They make non-slippery bed liners.
    http://www.bedrug.com/products/bed-liners/bed-rug.html

    Just depends what you use it for. Slippery is good if you'll be hosing gravel or hay out of it, but it's...

    I've no idea what cruising is, but a 35' arena would not be of any use to me. I can't imagine asking a young, unbalanced horse to always be taking turns that tight. Even a round pen I'd want to be...

    How big are those opening? About 6" x 2"? A horse could definitely trap a hoof in that with nasty results.

    You can probably find a different brand that has smaller openings and would be much...

    If you live somewhere with minimum wage laws it's probably illegal to pay by the task if that sometimes works out less than minimum wage. It's pretty likely that by whatever criteria your local...

    Only you can decide if buying _a_ horse or a house is the right lifestyle choice for you, but it sounds like you think you can make a profit on this horse. If that's part of your decision making...

    Most sites will remove some reviews. Some like Yelp are practically an extortion racket.

    Amazon is often a good source but you still have to take it with a grain of salt. Vendors game it, by...

    If you keep your vehicles till they are 15 I don't think leasing would work for you.

    The system works by figuring out how much the difference is between the price of a new vehicle and the price of...

    If you have a truck and trailer you know that gas is just the beginning of the costs. I've always offered to pay 100% of the gas when being car pooled somewhere (or split 100% between the passengers...

    Is the horse fit and used to medium length hauls?

    If so, put horse in trailer, drive, check, refill hay and offer water when you stop for fuel.
  13. If it's something you really want to do, you...

    If it's something you really want to do, you could probably do it. It would take months and there will be sections that you look at forever and say "That crooked bit there is my fault".

    It's not...

    I've skipped some pages because there is only so much room for crazy in my life, but my advice would be to keep all your records but ignore her. I've had dozens of people warn me that I would see...

    There are a million kinds of arena rakes out there at wide range of prices or home made.

    I'm not sure what you mean by a "regular drag". I would not bother with a chain harrow (like...
  16. As long as they will work with your final footing...

    As long as they will work with your final footing now I'd get a good rake now. Stone dust is a decent footing if it's dragged weekly or after rain, but turns into a hard gravel road if left to its...

    If weeds are the only problem, dragging it well 1+ times a week will fix it.

    Fresh footing on top without fines or organic material would help too, but unless you are also trying to fix...

    You may have other issues too, but the first problem is you don't look to have a charger intended for horses.

    Great answer, but you have that part backwards. Wider aperture means shorter depth of field. You don't get to have your cake and eat it too. You get to pick a short shutter speed or good depth of...

    Hay mow is an old-fashioned term, and at least in my experience is used for a hay storage area in a barn at ground level. If it's above the barn I've only even heard it called a hay loft.

    Millings are not like asphalt. They are much more like gravel, and if you are getting them unscreened for free they will be like gravel with fist sized and bigger lumps mixed in.

    No. If you are already marginal for tractor lifting capacity, you want the bale as close to the center of gravity of the tractor as you can, not spaced out.

    Short spears will be fine. If things...

    What do you want to account for?

    If you already have a farm set up for horses, you can probably call it breaking even. Starting from the assumption that you would own a horse farm anyway, a...

    The one time it happened to me it ended badly. Non-horse Barn Owner Husband (hereafter NHBOH) was ok to begin with, but it was clearly real estate speculation. As NHBOH's dealings with the county...

    If you like your Kubota, the next size up would work. Any of the L series.

    It depends how big your rake is. 30hp would be fine for a 6' one. 50hp would be fine for an 8' one. Maybe go up a bit...
