  2. Hay shortage,what is a good hay stretcher

    they ( 2 horses and a mini donkey) are in a 3 acre crappy weedy dry lot, I let them on my yard and driveway ( about 2 acres ).But hay to buy is almost nonexistent,They need to keep what they have for their own stock so none for sale. I am feeding a good amount of hay for the last feeding of the day and cubes/pellet mix during the day. I am still able to get a burmuda grass maybe 40lb bale paying 7.45 each from the local feed store.

    ok one word "CAMERAS" check with local laws and homeowner ***. but for most states you can put as many cameras on your property as you want. I know from personal experiance. the cameras dont even have to be hooked up as long as they are there, I run cable from the camera to the nearest building and watch all nonsense stop. If you can see the suspects house or at least the direction they would be comming from point one right there. Best of luck ..but DO NOT let your guard down. this is not a game. if they can harm an animal imagine... well pet your baby and puppy kisses...
  9. I'm Backkkkkk Remember Me? Pics Of Opie

    well my store started out in an old barn the lady was renting retail space.I had rented a stall and cleanned out my tack room. then I started taking in consignments and before I knew it I was renting a second stall. and blah blah blah .. I ended up moving when it got cold and she wasn't going to fix the furnace. the location I am at now was only a temp spot but I couldn't pull everything together in time to move before the temp. lic to expire. But heck nothing good comes with out hard work right.? ok whatever... lol And my horse treats started out as gifts for xmas for my horsey friends and too many people asked how much they were and well that too is history. I make them with all kitchen ingrediants so if you get hungry at the barn...hehehe dbblD heck you got some big dogs too. St b's are so cool... but ahhh those rotts are something special

  14. horse stolen in Utah "Sockett"

    Can you please keep a look out for my friends horse. Thanks oh also hit the link to see more horses stolen or lost http://www.netposse.com/stolenmissing/Sock...stolenMay06.htm owners name: Sandy Sanders email: smomtoall@msn.com city: Erda county: Tooele state: UT country: USA zip: 84074 home phone: 435-843-7177 other phone: 435-840-5936 theft date month: May theft date day: 9 theft date year: 2006 location: 8000 n. Burmester road, Grantsville, utah Tooele County how missing: the morning of the 10th of May about 10:30 am I went to feed and check water. I noticed that the pen that my horse Sockett was in was empty. I went looking for him in the pasture and then up and down the street. Even if he did manage to get out of his pen I know he would not have left his pasture pal. There are 8 other horses out there. Not to mention he is surrounded by cows. Sockett is scared of cows. After looking for him I call the vet's in town and the Sheriff's office to see if anyone had found a horse or if one had been hurt or killed in the area. They all said no. So I began to look more and after 2-3 hours I called to the sheriff?s to report my horse missing. A deputy came out along with brand inspector. The BI said that it was plain to see that the pen had been opened by a person and not a horse because the gate had been lifted, not pushed across the ground like a horse would do. Later on that day, I caught up with one of the other ladies who has her horses out there. She came out to the pasture and found that her saddle, saddle pad and bridle had been stolen from a truck that she had parked out there. She has filed a report but I don't know the case #. This is when it became very clear to me that someone had stolen my Sockett. The woman whose tack was stolen had told me that some one had been stealing her hay for the past few weeks, a few bails at a time. So I believe that someone had been planning this for a while. Although my horses had only been out there for a month and 2 weeks. http://www.netposse.com/stolenmissing/Sock...stolenMay06.htm
