    I have told the barn manager that if he doesn't shape up, I will be taking the morning chores over. I would rather do them myself then have to worry about whether the horses have food or water...

    I'd also look out for carrageenan in any of the dairy substitutes. If you're doing the elimination diet for GI upset, carrageenan can cause an inflammatory response in many people. Carrageenan is...

    Try working out at home in the mornings. Maybe Focus T25 where the workouts are only 25 minutes long. (I can share my copy with you if you'd like! PM me!) That way, it crosses the worst thing off...

    And this is exactly why a well maintained truck and horse trailer are on my list of barn "must haves". I don't have to hire out for hauling.

    Can anyone tell me anything about "Oxford" brand tack? I picked up a beautiful flat hunt bridle at a garage sale yesterday. It's older - at least 30 years old- but it's lovely! Oxford is the only...

    The computer I installed Debian on last night is a 2005 iMac G5 PowerPC and it's performing flawlessly. No frustrations, no issues. Certainly a marked upgrade from OS X. But, according to you, I...

    The newest versions of Debian support both the G4 and G5 PowerPC so you're assumption that the most recent Linux OS releases don't include the PowerPC is false. Getting Linux running on a Mac is a...

    I have an older iMac and I just deleted OSX and installed a Linux operating system on it (Debian Wheezy). They have desktop themes to make it look and feel like OSX but with seriously improved...

    I haul a Brenderup Royal TC with a 6-cylinder Chevy Trailblazer. My Trailblazer has the factory towing set up but I still put in an aftermarket transmission cooler to be safe. I love this truck but I...

    Darn - Too Far! As far as charging I'm not sure. I guess it depends on the scope of the work and how long it would take me.

    I don't know that there is much of a market for this though. I know...

    I was just given a very high dollar show horse who they thought was very lame and needed a lengthy rehab. I got him home, got a second opinion (two actually), invested in an MRI to confirm what both...

    I recently picked up about 80 bales of second cutting alfalfa-timothy hay and the horses just won't eat it. It is a bit different from the soft, leafy green grass hay they're used to eating but the...

    I put down a very reactive young mare who was blind and felt a great deal of relief when we buried her. I couldn't justify keeping her alive when I knew she was going to have 20+ years of struggle. ...

    I used sharkbite fittings to connect to the plumbing inside the house. I didn't need to tag directly into my well/cistern at all. I brought the line that was going into the barn into the basement...

    I rented a 4' deep trencher and ran 300' of black plastic water pipe from the house to a frost free hydrant in the barn. Simple hookup and it cost me less than $500. Totally worth it!
