A checklist is included detailing what to look for if considering a used tractor.On trailers, readers will find the answers to all their questions, beginning with the kind of trucks and hookup required for towing various capacity trailers to selecting the appropriate truck hitch. The thorough discussion of trailers details options in floor plans, loading entry, suspension, and accomodations for both horses and owners: tack room, living quarters, windows and vents, lights, feeders, and more.Hill also discusses the smaller farm implements found on many horse farms, including loaders, discs, harrows, manure spreaders, mowers, post-hole diggers, hay balers, and wagons. "Equipping Your Horse Farm" is an authoritative, comprehensive handbook that every horse farmer will want to consult before investing in these critical items of farm equipment.
