    That does not sound like good riding weather.

    I know lots of them! Most are 19-30. I even know a young Martha.

    Yes Barney, they have started naming most of the bigger weather fronts now. It was very gusty, 70-80 mph gusts. At one point I thought my covered runs were going to take off. Thankfully the covers are fastened down with elastic so a bit of give helped. Phew!!

    No it's not I'm afraid, Harry is not minding it though ;)
    He's probably praying for wind and rain on the quiet so I keep my big backside out of the saddle!!

    hate to double post, but looking for your opinions.......

    not really for you northern folks, because I can see all kinds of freeze issues.

    has anyone tried one of these hook to your water hose?

    I know I can come up with something to keep them from sitting on or pooping in the water, was just curious about pro's and con's.

    I very rarely have it cold enough for long enough for the water to freeze in the pipes.

    even with pvc pipes exposed out in the pig/goat shed.

    water hose would expand and contract much better than a pipe would.

    and as far as heat, it may eventually over time cause a bubble, that would be noticeable and pretty easy to remedy. Plus I have seen a few that come with a stainless steel hose.

    You do hook this up to your garden hose ? That is the hose I am referring to busting from the combo of pressure and heat . Does the restriction go at the faucet or the water container?
