    TheFarmOfDreams- a long awaited adventure

    Thanks for the feedback Bruce! I think both wells are supplying both buildings... One is back up, I believe? And now that you mention the apartment septic... I'll have to double check. They gave us so much info I don't remember where theirs is! No problems with the roof reported... It may be...

    Coffee anyone ?

    Morning! Thanks for coffee.... I'm glad Richie's feeling ok lately! And Oh my goodness... That gives me flashbacks to what felt like hours of posting without stirrups! @Mini Horses I'm glad you've got progress on the implement. Sucks you have to start all over, but at least they're finally...

    TSC Fencing quality?

    This does sound perfect! Although with goats and donkeys in the picture, i have a feeling we'll need a few more strands. Plus we can run the chicken tractor through behind our horses/goats and then they have 2 rows of fence between them and the predators AND they can break up all the manure...

    TSC Fencing quality?

    I've read it once already, lol. And fully intend to reread and make note of all advice before we do out final fence. The plan is probably no climb, as we do have horses and such... But we'll see! I want to silvopasture about 5 acres, after we partially clear, and do a perimeter fence of the...

    TheFarmOfDreams- a long awaited adventure

    Thank you @farmerjan we were referred to a local bank that will finance in house, so finding a comparable property won't matter (which is the only problem right now. The property is gorgeous and in great shape, but complex and unique). The realtors have connections that they are promising will...

    TheFarmOfDreams- a long awaited adventure

    So everything is on hold. Our bank won't fund the mortgage because "the comparable property is unacceptable".... basically the place is so awesome and unique, there are no comparable properties, so they refuse to accept the value on the estimate. It's INFURIATING. So after stringing us along...

    Coffee anyone ?

    @Cecilia's-herd DEFINITELY slow down if you're pregnant! I didn't realize. You are definitely not too old to ride, but 5 months along is NOT the time to start riding. It hurts. LOL. (i retrained a QH i needed to sell at 6months along... it was not fun. And at 35, I still ride hard. and...

    @Baymule @Alaskan thank you! That's super helpful and reassuring. We just found out yesterday that our mortgage is probably falling through and we have to start all over.... so we'll definitely be putting in step-ins when we finally get there. its a big mess. sigh.

    Coffee anyone ?

    https://www.hoofrehab.com/Diet.html is an amazing nutrition resource! I plan on using it with my guy when I bring him home. There is also a facebook group, if you do FB, "forage based equine nutrition". However, with boarding, you may not have much say in what they eat. It depends on the barn...

    Coffee anyone ?

    I grew up with horses! What are your goals with the horse? Thoughts on use? Property/barn/pasture plans? Do you have specific questions? I just got my oldest back from his dads (huzzah), am dealing with the frustration of them neglecting his educational and nutritional needs :he and watching...

    TSC Fencing quality?

    @farmerjan thank you! That's all good to know. I don't think TSC carries a lot of brands up here though. Near me it was all american farmworks, and one other brand of horse wire (i dont remember the name off hand), and near the new place, it appears to all be american farmworks, per the...

    TSC Fencing quality?

    (putting in a new thread so hopefully it'll come up if others search. I couldn't find anything.) We still haven't closed on our new place. HOPEFULLY early next week? Anyways. So long as we aren't closed, I can't ship things to our new place... but shipping to our current addres (4hrs away)...

    Coffee anyone ?

    Morning all. I need that coffee today. Babe slept awful and so did I. I wish we still napped! No plans today, it's wet and we have 2 more days of qt before we can go out. :caf

    Picky eater help.

    Another thought on the teeth/jaw angle... Do goat teeth get sensitive to sugar when they're hurting? Like people? If so, maybe that's why she won't eat sweet feeds...

    Coffee anyone ?

    It's bit flat, not a huge slope, but enough I think. Just left much too long since it was last shingled. I know to pay attention to such things now!

    Coffee anyone ?

    @Alaskan overalls are an interesting idea... He is already doing better about underwear. But I'll have to keep baggy + commando in mind 😁 Hubby got up this am to messages from the tenant downstairs that their ceiling was leaking, and had collapsed. So I got to climb out on the roof of their...
