    Are they baggy and loose (and therefore just sagging down)? Or are they close-fitting/snug, in which case it's likely that they're being pulled down by another area that fits too snugly tight. I'd...

    OK, so I think you're saying you'd have short, individual cable lengths between the joists (which are probably spaced ~16" apart). One blanket on each of those short cables, hanging from chest...

    I have 3 (plus a "neighborhood horse" that I guess is mine now). I lose track of their ages and have to think about it, except for the one that is registered. Plus, I've had that guy for 16 years...

    Oh my god, I am so sorry for your loss. Please let us know if we can help.

    Rather than having brand new breeches made up from whole cloth (pun intended. Or was that even a pun, given that tailoring was the source of the original phrase? Hmmmm. Anyway....), how about...

    Concur with the no-chute crowd -- the chute sounds like an expensive solution to a cheap problem. Not necessarily in cost, but it just adds complexity to your organization that you don't know yet if...

    I painted a barn quilt based on a quilt design called "Bright Day". People generally don't name private farms around here so it would be uber-pretentious for us to do so. But if I had a name for my...

    The pulley system is a very cool idea. I like the heated closet idea too. I haven't framed in or wired my tack room yet, so I'm giving thought to making the back wall a floor-to-ceiling closet, and...
  9. If she's obedient other than this expression,...

    If she's obedient other than this expression, then no I would not correct. I would dislike it also, but I don't think punishment ever produces a good work ethic.

    There was a thread not too long...

    I have a few of these, and drape the blankets lengthwise along the top bar--wet side out, with a fan aimed at them. You can increase air circulation by putting some wire hangers on the rack, under...

    Agree that the behavior doesn't merit correction. BUT I'd probably change the situation and lead them in. It's just two horses, wouldn't take more than 10 extra minutes. Obviously the current setup...

    Good luck tomorrow! Make sure you, and anyone you bring with you, do not engage in conflict, even verbal. Sounds like she'll try to goad you into getting mad/defensive: don't take the bait. Let...

    Muscle memory is a b$tch to overcome, when what feels natural and right is wrong. I get puppy hands (palms down) unless I'm constantly thinking about it. So it could just be a matter of focus focus...

    Unfortunately it's purely an academic question for me-- I can't take in any of these ponies. I've got 4 in my field, including a hackney pony that seriously needs more work than I'm currently giving...

    Here's the ad
    Yes, I agree many look light-- or wasp-waisted because they're just skinny/young? That rose grey in the last pic looks like a youngster.

    Anyway, thanks for these interesting...
  16. Can bucking stock be retrained as saddle horses?

    There's a CL ad for a bucking stock dispersal, 16 head at $200 each. :( I know it will likely be a sad outcome for these guys, but it just made me curious if it's common / reasonably successful to...

    ^^ Agree. It's the equivalent of hiring uninsured itinerant roofers, except these ones carry around razor sharp blades spinning at 10000+rpm.

    Triple-ditto the person who said to get quart samples of a few colors and paint some test patches. We even considered putting a sign on the road asking neighbors to honk once if they like color A,...

    As much as I like shutters, I don't see how you'd add them to this house-- there simply isn't enough room on the sides of the windows. Plus there's a lot going on with those rooflines-- the overall...

    You were probably kidding but just wanted to caution you not to get up on a ladder with a chainsaw unless/until you are seriously expert with the saw. It's incredibly dangerous. Please hire...

    but bottom line, same concept. The one you posted would work too! (now this makes me want to put one in my barn!) :)

    The one i posted is also infrared, so object heating. There's an additional benefit of convection due to the design--air passes behind it, is heated, and creates some circulation (not as much...

    I've got one of these IR cove heaters in our mudroom and it's fantastic. They work best pointing down at an angle from above.
    As you prob already know, IR heat works by warming the objects, not the...

    OP just wanted to add that I admire your go-get-it attitude. Don't take the questions raised here as criticism of you (and it doesn't seem like you are! Good on you). What may come across as...

    4 horses on 35 acres (which I think is as much a factor in time/effort as number of horses). The horses are easy to manage on my own-- two on pasture 24/7, one of which gets grained 2x day, and the...
