  1. hogs destroyed my pastures 2 yrs ago.. one sow decided she lived here..lol!! she took up with one of my horses.. i looked out and they were standing the shade of a crepe myrtle tree..lol!! a lot of the hunters got together and for weeks hunted hogs.. they set some of those big spin traps.. folks eat them around here. i have not had any damage or seen hog tracks since,,
  2. not my favorite either.. lol! i love bays with appy and tobiano color but he was starving a woman's back yard so i rescued him ... planning on gelding and selling him to a good home lol!!! i fell in love with his personality . that was 12 yrs ago.. his foals get his great legs and mind.. easy to train .. i keep the bays.. lol!! paint and pinto foals are so pretty!!! i bet you loved looking over the field, thomas...
  3. okay, thanks.. i never thought about the horn being different than the face... learn something every time i visit!! JHCC , i do not own the vulcan. anvil . it is borrowed from a dear friend,,
  4. this description was on a new anvil.. i had never seen that before.. some of the the other anvils on that site didn't say that.. does that mean all old anvil horns should not be used for cold forging??
  5. frosty, here are photos of her sire. sunshine.. palomino and buckskin are created by the creme gene in one dose, perlino and cremello and double dose..
  6. she is a perlino, bay base with 2 dilutes.. one dominate cream, one recessive cream,,,aka the sunshine gene.. .. she will be a bit dark and richer in color with a pale pumpkin skin... this is her at 7 weeks. you can see the color in the skin ..her sire is the horse in my sidesaddle photo
  7. yep, she is the real thing!! lol!! her momma is a bay.. without the sunshine gene you can't get this color from a bay.. it was fun research breeding to prove the gene,,,
  8. filly!! her eyes are pale blue, her sire has ice green eyes.. so her should be aren be when she is grown .. she out of my stallion and caries a newly discovered color gene.. his foals are born broke.. they are like puppies.. so easy to work with.. frosty, i put her photo up just for you.. lol!! thought you would like seeing her.. ll!!!
  9. what does it mean about the metal composition when an anvil description states the horn is for use with hot metal only
  10. i really like it.. has a nice sound .. it is 70 -75 lbs.. i have not picked it up that is what jim , the owner told me,, thanks for the info!!!!
  11. i decided to listen to y'all and didn't even go look at it.. the post vise was in good working condition and was bolted on but he would not sell them separate ... these photos are of the anvil i am using now,, i like it... it is small but so is my work,,
  12. yes i saw your crash and frosty's stand down. this is a great place because it spite of it all we all keep going forward,,
  13. lol!! yes i realized that this group would understand .. i can still ride and gallop horses with my knee,, just not drive,, so i will kept it a while longer,, my knee is why i am going to experiment with seated forging,, lol!! i will go the the tailgate now!! okay, i will post in tail gating .. that might be the best way to go.. but in the mean time i will figure out what really need.. lol!!!
  14. i have access to someone that could drill a second hole,, i think.. lol!! i will get a photo of my borrowed anvil today.. is it not huge but it works well for me,, the log is too tall for me and moves some, i was going to cut it off and then decided to find my own and set it up just for me,,, i am decidedly shorter than the average bear lol!! what is the tail gate section?? that sounds like a great idea!!!
  15. there is a tfs about 3 hrs away.. .. sadly. i am kinda a prisoner because of a bad knee.. only fix is replacement and that would limit some of my horse training methods, most of my friends are still working at real jobs ,, lol!! so no chauffeurs available i have just started looking for my own anvil, using a farrier friend's right now, he thought he was done, lol! but it starting to miss working metal,, so i decided i need to find one of my own .. i will look at the online suppliers thanks,, i used to drive to all over the place but no more.. it is frustrating as hell but you have to live with what your betraying body leaves you . good idea!! a scratch and dent on anvils,,, too funny!! i have access to someone that could drill a second hole,, i think.. lol!!
  16. okay, well, i will still go look... not buy .. it is only 14 miles away,, lol!!
  17. the anvil i am using now has 2 pritchel holes.. i like that.. what brand has that.. it is about 100 bs
  18. how much cheaper?? where do i buy a new anvil?? never thought about one,, i saw one with an aluminum base but that didn't make sense to me,, i looked at centaur forge. they have quite a few options,,
  19. i can't pay 1000.00 just wanted to know if it was worth it or what it is worth... he knows nothing about it,, it was his father in laws.. it is not staged so i am guessing it mounted in the hardy hole.. the blacksmith that used it has moved on to greener pastures so no way to get any info,,, they seem to run high around here... and not many around . if i could drive to Oklahoma or arkansas ..they are so much cheaper there.. lol!! i used to go up there all the time for horse and chicken shows but i can't make that drive anymore,, TWISTEDWILLOW.. you might have to do mercy run to texas.. lol!!! i am going to see it tuesday.. it is the first anvil i have found near me so i can make the drive, bad knee prevents long trips,, will have an update then
  20. morning!! found this anvil and vise near me,, it is worth buying?? there are no close ups of the anvil top,, it looks rough to me.. if it is worth buying ..it is worth 1k for both vise and anvil?? i need a post leg vise too,, i have to dig it up ..lol!!
  21. my sister was attacked by the neighbor's german shepard when she was around 4 yrs old.. i saw it happen and ran for help.. i was 8 .. the dog was old and they thought she probably hurt him when she climbed on him .. he was not a mean dog.. she loves german shepherd and has had them for yrs.. lol!! doesn't remember a thing.. i on the other hand can can't stand to be around them.. i am always uneasy when i see her with the dogs to this day... i know it is illogical.. i will not let her bring them when she visits.. i love dogs.. just not german shepard's..
  22. morning!! i got the mark aspery book.. great book!!!! it answered questions i didn't even know to ask..lol!!! thanks for the recommendation!!
  23. wow!! this thread got really interesting while i was away... lol!!!
