    Oh those are nice! He is a keeper for sure.

    My husband in not handy with woodworking. He made me a dog house once that was sized for a puppy, too bad my dog was a German Shepherd mix. She never really fit in it. LOL He is very good at welding which I have taken full advantage of. He has made me most of my stuff out of horse shoes. Everything from bridle racks and halter holders to door handles and coffee tables. I say keep the handy ones around, you never know what they can make for you.

    Next you're going to tell us he cooks and is a massage therapist!

    Would you consider renting him out?


    There's a wardrobe trunk I'd love to have--I think this link should work http://www.mcguinnfarms.com/pages/verticals5.html

    If that floats your boat, maybe he could add that to his list.


    You lucky duck.

    He does cook, does laundry, even feeds the horses and dogs with out me asking. Last weekend he got up and went out and fed so that I could sleep in. And he does give a great back rub.

    Aw heck - they are all lke that in Canada! Just kidding actually. But the first thing my BF did for me was make me a tack trunk when he met me - and we have been married over 30 years now. He still does the night feeding. I try to be appreciative, but sometimes I'm just - er - me.

    Eleanor,

    What is the width difference between the top and the bottom on the side of the grooming box? I’m having one made and want to make sure the door stays where it’s supposed to while open.

    Have fun coming up with more projects for this man of yours!
    "Dressage" is just a fancy word for flatwork

    That's it! I'm leaving my hubby and coming to kidnap your man! lol! That is really sooo nice of him to be so supportive and caring. He is one of a kind!
    Just because I talk slow doesn't mean that I actually AM slow.

    Just the side wood is 9"top and 12 1/4" bottom , over all hight is 2'.

    Creaghgal, he made mine just a little different then the ones that you can buy off the net. I asked for a few different things and he made it out if 3/4" not 1/2" so it is a little bigger.

    You are SO lucky to have such a great guy!!

    Just when I think most guys are so self-centered and think women are here to please them... someone like this comes along. It's refreshing.

    I know someone who is a talented woodworker who is wanting a little extra income, and he's been considering making things similar to these. How much do you guys think these things are worth??

    You might actually be right. Mine loves to cook, does laundry and cleans, and rewired the barn amongst other handyman activities and does stalls on weekedays. It was like chocolate icing on the cake after luring me from sunny Florida

    McGuinn will be higher as theirs are truly luxe.

    If your friend can setup a mailorder business (or Ebay?) he could make himself some $$$

    Eleanor: I think your BF is the SonINeverHad...please send him home ASAP
    I'll return him when he finishes outfitting my barn
