    Water in the winter

    I was actually thinking of doing this. In the summer I used of of our stock tanks to hold gold fish while I cleaned out their pond. It was a big job so I hook up a filter system and pump with a big rubber maid to keep them clean while they were in there. For cleaning sake alone, I’d be stupid...

    Water in the winter

    We had to replace as well.Our electrical is still a work in progress. The man before us didn’t have a clue what he was doing. So we have been ‘cleaning’ it up and minimizing. We put in 4 GFCI’s and I would still like to replace the rest of the outlets....little by little right lol I was...

    Water in the winter

    I will price around before deciding for sure! This seemed a wee steep! I can live with what I have if it gets us through that deep frost. This is what I’m waiting for. If not I’ll likey price these out and go for it. We have the stock tanks and then I use the rubbermaid muck buckets from our...

    Water in the winter

    Since doing what we’ve done to the main, I think I’ve semi solved our problem; for now anyways. We will see when temps drop below the -20 -30 marker! I don’t think much will keep anything from freezing at that point. One day my ponies and I will retire somewhere warm haha I always attempt to...

    What makes these frost free? It looks like it would freeze to me? Also I assume this is connected directly to the well line somehow? There wasn’t much of a discription

    Water in the winter

    Yes that’s what I have it plugged into, as I had mentioned. I’m not to sure who would try to force any plug anywhere, but lord help them. Anyhow. I’ll re read regarding the extra grounding spike it’s referring too. Maybe this is not necessary when using a GFCI. I am more so curious as to how...

    Water in the winter

    Question for your stalk tank. I plugged my heater into a safety receptacle but in the directions it was mentioned a method of grounding beyond the safety receptacle. Did you simply plug yours in as I did? I’ve never used one before. I also took some of our plastic tubing (we use under ground to...

    Water in the winter

    hey y’all Just curious as to how you all keep your water mains from freezing in your barns. Our barn has a make shift water system. Our water is pumped from the well, the previous owner installed hoses along the ceiling which was SO convenient during the warm weather. Direct water to the...

    Cute, little... and a bully!

    This is how our mini mare was after foaling. She became very pushy and dominate. She didn’t even like the other horses at the fence line near her. She was not this way prior too. I def. think it’s a protection thing. Ensuring everyone in the herd knows to back off she means business. She calmed...

    Working a mini

    Thanks! I wish we could take them on hikes!! There’s a great trail by us. But I’d have to cross a very busy road to get to it. When we first got Willow, I use to take her to the bus stop to wait on the kids with me and we use to walk the perm. Of the 100 acres surrounding us of fields. However...
