    Water tanks

    When I ran a boarding stable I know I found a couple of stall that could regularly drown rats, sometimes three in a night. Ick!!! This summer we have had trouble with the stock tank in one pasture drowning squirrels. I always worry that I won't see them and the horses won't drink the water...

    Tires for Ez Entry Cart

    Ladies (and Gentlemen), I have an ez entry cart you know the kind with metal frame and shafts and the red seat with piping around it. I love my ez entry cart for breaking and training, working in the rain. I have even considered sleigh runners for it. I have a problem with tires on the darn...

    Growth Rate of Horse Tail?

    We have always found Cowboy Magic (a slimy, slippery, silicone feeling like product) works wonders to get pixie knots and other tail issues cleaned up. MTG contains sulfur which is why it is good for itchy skin, manes and tails. As to whether it actually stimulates growth I don't know but if...

    I prefer being home

    We live in a small town on ten acres. I do go to work every day and I love my job and my work family. I do not like it when we have to make necessary trips into the BIG city for some supplies. I much prefer to do my shopping on the internet and wait for UPS to bring it to me. You are right...

    Barnlime vs Stall PDZ

    A long time ago they used lime in a barn where I kept horses, it was in a garbage can in the aisleway. A horse got out and ate some of it and it blistered his mouth terribly. I don't know if there was anything else at play as I was only about 10 years old, but I remember the lime being all...

    SHEDDING!!!!!!!!!! in winter...

    As of December 21st (the winter solstice) and the shortest day of the year, the days are getting longer, longer day light hours start the first signs of shedding, shedding should get in full force when we get more hours of daylight. By the same token the longer and denser winter hair starts to...

    question about mini chewing wood

    Two of mine have done this recently and it is boredom. I used Iiquid Ivory Soap and "flavored" it with Cayenne Pepper (from the $1 spice aisle) and it has stopped them stone cold from doing it any more.

    Tail care in the winter

    Guard Tex is a great product for putting up tails. Unlike vet wrap it does breath some.

    My grandson, 6 yr old, did both last year. They are allowed to have a "safety adult" with them. I purchased him a little 5 piece suit off for like $40 and a fedora, added a pair of gloves and some cowboy boots and he was in heaven. I let him show color and showmanship 7 & under, he...
