  1. The Front Porch

    I just had a brainstorm. Someone need to invent a vacuum that you can use to collect the dandelion fluff so it doesn't get spread around.
  2. The Front Porch

    NP, where should I send them? RRW, I did that once. I had two bags left that I thought I would use the following spring. It turned to concrete over the winter. It's still in the garage and I can't lift it and don't know what to do with it if I could.
  3. The Front Porch

    LC, when I have to dig something, I pour a bucket of water or more on the spot a while before. If you have clay, it really helps. My lord, there is an epidemic of dandelions this year! I'm hoping for rain to at least wet down the seeds before I have to mow.
  4. Signs of spring?

    ^^^Haha! Most wildflowers are weeds. I've avoided them because some are poisonous to horses, but Jubal is pretty good about avoiding the bad stuff.
  5. Streaming....GADS!!!

    Heartland is kinda hokey but it's a nice escape. Is it still producing new episodes?
  6. Signs of spring?

    I had five packets of wild flower seed that were sent through the mail as a promotion over the years. I decided yesterday was the day to plant them. I don't hold out much hope.

    Love that tile, especially top right. You need an auger that works off your tractor PTO.
  8. Streaming....GADS!!!

    ^^^There are lots of PBS stations and some of them carry BBC programs. My satellite company only carries two PBS stations but a friend up north has six or seven.
  9. Streaming....GADS!!!

    No, I don't do Netflix either. I watch PBS a lot and the British series. But it sounds like I'm missing some of those. QH, are you getting those on PBS channels? Right now, I'm watching an American Pickers episode I've seen about ten times.

    Every time you all put food pictures on here, I have to go bake refrigerator cookies! I'm sure I've eaten too many!

    I hope Bob will be okay, Queen. You account of your very busy day exhausted me. I thought I did well to mow the pastures and grease the tractor loader and mower.
  12. Signs of spring?

    Beautiful day here. Second in a row!
  13. Are horsepeople truly nuts?

    The answer to your original question is yes. And this is the only sport where any person who gets anywhere near a horse two or more times becomes an expert.
  14. Texas People #6

    Yep, she's a horsewoman!
  15. Signs of spring?

    The alfalfa in CA and AZ and some other western states is higher in minerals. That's also being studied as possible factors in enteroliths.
  16. Signs of spring?

    Enteroliths happen most often in the desert states. I don't know if the connection has been found yet, but yes you're right. alfalfa is associated. I've never had a case or known anyone else who has.
  17. Needing Information on Colorado saddle maker

    I found this site where you might be able to get some more infohttp://coloradosaddlemakers.org/
  18. Signs of spring?

    LC, my last horse was prone to colic. I never found a cause. When he was down in his stall and uncomfortable, I would start walking him. It usually took about a half hour and it was over. It got so he would practically walk himself. He lived to 29. He did well on Purina Senior which is alfalfa based, and alfalfa cubes. Does she have access to grass? It's usually a pretty good laxative this time of year. I hope she comes out of it okay.
  19. Signs of spring?

    Well I got my comeuppance today. It was sunny but a brisk cold wind. It was either cut the grass or have to bushhog it later. I had to wear a winter coat and earflap hat. I recall making fun of my neighbor for doing that not long ago.

    Try contacting the maker. http://www.longhorndbq.com/
  21. Too far gone?

    Do you have a saddle repair near you? They might tell you if it's safe. One did that for me when I had an old one. It had dry rot though, so I chose to scrap it. I put it on top of the garbage can on garbage day with a note that it was dry rotted and unsafe. It was gone before the garbage truck came.
  22. Getting a Second horse?

    There is a machine called a rock picker. This one is small but if you have a tractor you can get bigger
  23. Signs of spring?

    PW!! I can't believe you put that cake photo there with no warning! Now you triggered my chocoholism. The kitties really grew and look very serious about getting their picture taken. And I never got the connection between the redhead kitty and Lucy. Good name choice!
