So then what's the problem?

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

Stalls or loafing shed at least 8' st the short end and a minimum of 10x12. With vaccines, feed, and other care I would estimate around $100 per month. It can be a bit less if you have lots of pasture, and more if your farrier and hay costs are high. Hay around here for Bermuda is five or six a bale. Good hay is essential as they are not ruminants and cab easily get lung or digestive issues. Mold is deadly.

That's a good synopsis.

 

Back in the old days when I was growing up, we baled our own hay. Mostly it was timothy, orchard grass and fescue.

I think in all the years our horses had hooves trimmed twice. However, they had 100 acres to run with rocky slopes so I'm sure that made a big difference. They almost never went into the barn. We never vaccinated nor did they ever see a vet.

 

My comment that Jerusalem Artichokes were the best source of sugar for alcohol was from a 2 day alcohol fuels seminar put on by the Mother Earth News. They taught how to make alcohol from a wide array of vegetative sources and the yield of each. They also taught how to convert any gasoline engine to run on alcohol.

There was a pickup truck, a car, a Harley Davidson and a generator all running on alcohol. After hours of the Harley running on pure alcohol, you could put your hand right on the pipes and it didn't burn.

Mother Earth News did a great in depth study of all the old methods of storage.

 

Some were worse than doing nothing.

I was kidding more than anything but I have 4 dogs and they all listened extremely well. They also think I'm going to kill them if they do anything wrong. gig.gif
