    Collar and Hames revisited...

    I also use a collar and hames for one of my horses. We were training him with a regualr breast strap type brest collar. He was a big pain in the butt. I made the choice to get him a collar and hames. He is a different horse. He now pulls our hay from the truck to the hay shed. He trots and has...

    Pumpkin crazy

    I am going to try to modify a waffle recipe and make hopefully Pumpkin waffles. I thought they would be really good with the sweet white sauce we already use for waffles. So, if they come out of the waffle iron we are all good.

    I just got a tempur-pedic 3 days ago. I felt so selfish buying the bed this time of year. But, when there is a warehouse damaged (the plastic bag over the bed tore and the edge got dirty from the floor) sale you get it when you can. I got a super deal and all of my aches and pains are so small I...

    I don't have any really new pics because it is foggy and rainy. So his outer hair is wet most of the time. He was born with a white (appy) patch (about the size of my hand) on each side of his bum. I know he is an appy. His grand sire on his sires side is a silver bay appy.His sire is an appy. I...

    Making them earn their keep...haha (Faux farm work questions)

    I have a set of shafts that would work great on that sled. Where do you get a sled like that? Oh, and I made a single tree out of a scrap shelf suport section. It is around 22-24" and I used screw eye bolts to hang it and attach the traces to.

    Is your driving limited with the cold weather?

    I don't drive in the cold weather because I am a cold weather sissy.

    Training suggestions plllease

    I had a QH that would run like the wind on trails. Put her in an arena and run barrels, you needed to break out the calender to time her. She just didn't like it. Some horses are made to show and some are not. My stallion (mini) hates pleasure driving. You have to continually get after him to...

    Rolling and bucking in harness, HELP!!!!

    This is very true about seeing problems in photos. I was emailing a lady that was having problems with a riding horse that tossed her head. I gave her some suggestions. However, when I saw pics of her setup, I could give her a whole list of what could be wrong. My suggestion with the "rolling"...

    Newly Neutered Dog exercise questions

    The only thing my vet said when my boys went in on valentines day was to limit jumping for about 48 hours.

    I had neck surgery and the hospital I was at had the tempur-pedic type matresses in the beds on the orhto. floor. I think it had to be the best sleep I ever had in a hospital. And it wasn't the drugs because I wasn't taking any. I felt that good right out of surgery.

    Ok, I have done some more research. This buckle that I don't know what to do with seems to be for a pairs harness. I guess I still have to get some parts for the harness to work right for moving hay. I do have shaft loops and a girth with wraps for the EE cart.

    What I mean when I ask what the breaching is for is in the Draft harness. I have pleasure harnesses and have driven for a ton of years. I just have never driven with a draft harness. The reason I asked about the breaching was I have even seen horses that are doing skid work with one on. There is...

    Ok, I finally got everything needed for my harness. My boy is built so odd that I had to do a couple of things to get it to fit. I am using a samller girth as he was too thin for the one that came with my harness. I also had to add a back saddle pad. I do have some questions. First, What good...
