    Fly issue - need help for Spot.

    The last couple years, Spot has been having some severe issues with the flies and gnats. They bite in his ears, under his forelock, and his chest till he's bloody and raw. The vet said he's having an allergic reaction from the bites. Everyday I slather on this medicated lotion on the inside...

    Clipper blades.

    Is it common for resharpened clipper blades to dull much faster than than new blades? I had 9 blades cleaned and sharpened last spring, and had them all ready to go for clipping Spot when it warmed up enough. He was all cleaned up for just doing a head and neck clip on him tonight. Two of the...

    Winter pasture.

    Our main fence that we use for our haflinger and mini was iced over this weekend, and the only place they can get out for now, until we get more snow, is the grass pasture. It is covered with a good bit of snow, but the haffie can easily dig down to get at what grass is there. Neither have...

    Can anyone tell me more about this buggy?

    We made the decision a while ago, that we were getting out of minis. This new property that we moved to is just to hilly, not at all mini friendly, and we haven't been able to enjoy driving for quite some time. We are keeping one as a pet, but decided that we are moving on to haflingers, and...

    Monarch Butterflies.

    Has anyone on here ever watched the life cycle of a monarch butterfly? Someone on another forum I frequent gave me the idea for this, and I went out an collected monarchs in the caterpillar stage from my own front yard. They live on milkweed plants, and as I understand, monarch populations are...

    What pattern is he considered?

    We were having a bbq out in the back yard today, and I just happened to catch sight of Spot standing by the fence. It just hit me that he really looked different, so I had to come and check out some pics. Even since last year, he's lost quite a bit of black on his legs and head. I went back...

    Spot is 2 1/2 years old now, and I've slowly been working with him on some ground work in preperation for cart training next spring.

    First Charlene's hummingbird......

    I think my grosbeaks have been talking to Charlene's hummingbird! In all the years we've fed the birds, I have never seen a grosbeak eating grape jelly before! All of their seed feeders are full, but they have suddenly developed a taste for the orioles grape jelly. At first we thought maybe...

    Best footing to use for dry lot area.

    We're going to be doing some landscaping around the barn, adding fill to raise up some areas. We live on a hill, and there is no such thing as a flat surface around here. The biggest problem we need to resolve, is the footing right in front of the barn. The horses stand there throughout the...

    I have been waiting since early spring to get this shot, and finally had the opportunity! I don't have a decent lens for distance yet, so getting shots at any distance is difficult! This afternoon, hubby and I were relaxing after working on the barn lights all morning, and I looked out the...

    CMHR's Aurora

    I clipped her this afternoon, and she stood like a trooper! I held her leadline while I clipped her neck and chest, and she stood perfect. The whole time hubby was on the roof of the barn with the loud drill, walking back and forth, drilling in screws. Didn't even bother her! When he was done...
