    Re: Our new dog

    Congratulations on Grandy and Rocky. Greyhounds are the most wonderful dogs. We love our Mexicali to pieces. Sorry to hear that your first was abused. I guess that happens sometimes, but...

    Re: 1967 Mustang opportunity

    It's been a long time since I had my '66 coupe but I'm guessing if the car is a 289 really in showroom condition w/ 28k on it's worth $10k easy and probably a LOT more if it's a fastback. My...

    Re: pet adoption weekend

    And don't forget there are always retired greyhounds looking for homes. They are generally 2-3 years old when they are offered for adoption and make absolutely wonderful pets. Look on the web to...

    Re: PTO Chipper

    I would die for one. I think a good one with hydraulic feed goes for 6-7k (which aint bad as a stand alone unit of similar capacity would probably be twice as much). But it's low on the priority...

    I'm just finishing up a horse fence around a 2 acre pasture now. The guy that does my excavator work told me that he backfills with tamped stonedust. I tried it with this fence. It's certainly...

    Re: Gutters on steel sided buildings

    The ones I'm talking about appear to be part of the trim package on the metal building. They appear very similar to the trim piece used on the gable (wrapping over the roof panel with a gap in the...

    Re: Gutters on steel sided buildings

    Richard,

    Are you able to get steel gutters that match your siding or trim? I know you shouldn't mix aluminum and steel, unless you put a gasket in between to seperate them.

    Gutters on steel sided buildings

    What's the best gutter solution out there? Does anyone have those gutters that wrap over the roof panel on the eaves to give that built-in appearance? Anyone find a supplier that supplies painted...

    Re: Internet sources for equine supplies

    We use "super seven" (I'm not sure of the brand) and it 'works', meaning it does something for a while as compared to nothing (which most do). And it too is like liquid gold at $50 something a...

    Re: What is the correct height of horse fence?

    I guess it has something to do with the size of the horses too, especially for the leaning over the fence part. You perspective might be a little different if you own some of those Mack truck...

    Re: What is the correct height of horse fence?

    I guess everyone else seems to think taller is better, but I agree with you. I've always heard the figure 54" for the typical horse fence. That's even the default figure mentioned by RAMM fence in...

    This is not unreasonable for nice stalls, but they should be nice (especially the hardware and grills (welded & powder coated)) for this price. No cheapo cannon ball sliders...

    Re: Another \"steep\" qoute

    If you build it yourself rent a Rough Terrain scissor lift. You can use it to put up the trusses and do a lot of the roof work. It'll knock a lot of time off your project.

    Re: What is the correct height of horse fence?

    I agree, follow the lie of the land. I only deviate +- 4" to accomodate very small dips and such. Here in New England there is no such thing as "flat" or "level".

    I shoot for 54" and vary up to plus or minus 4" to follow the contour of the land. It seems like the right height to me and similar to many other horse fences I have seen. I've never felt it is too...
