While its predictions are useful for some things, I don't think they're useful for horsekeeping.
5/26/2014 7:47:59 PM
I rely on my own preferences and experiences
5/26/2014 4:35:15 PM
I read it for fun.
5/26/2014 4:25:08 PM
I trust in myself and my horse to influence my choises, not some random pearson.
5/26/2014 8:50:06 AM
Haven't really seen it around
5/25/2014 4:06:28 PM
I geld on the moon signs and watch full moon reports for possible foaling dates.
5/25/2014 12:36:44 PM
I suggest using anything that used the scientific method to achieve the information.
5/23/2014 11:23:29 PM
hadn't considered doing so... maybe I should...
5/23/2014 7:39:37 PM
Castrations by the sign of the moon.
5/23/2014 3:25:39 PM
I trust the horse management decisions being made by wild horse and burro specialists.
5/23/2014 2:41:48 PM
mostly things are true
5/23/2014 1:52:41 PM
Weaned my filly according to moon signs and incredibly fast, positive adjustment1
5/23/2014 9:46:44 AM
gild the boys... and most all non emergency surgeries
5/23/2014 9:18:36 AM
I have to plan on the market. I don't think that can predict it.
5/23/2014 2:29:10 AM
wean & castrate using moon signs
5/22/2014 7:03:18 PM
I rely on trainer, vet, farrier and my own experience.
5/22/2014 6:23:49 PM
But I often check it after the fact to see "what if I had".
5/22/2014 5:41:38 PM
Often predicts events, not no.
5/22/2014 4:14:41 PM
I find the almanac quite interesting, but it does not infuence my decisions.
5/22/2014 4:12:36 PM
I don't rely on it, but am usually interested in the predictions. Especially in winter..
5/22/2014 12:11:00 PM
from when to geld, to spray for weeds
5/22/2014 8:24:22 AM
only used for light entertainment
5/22/2014 1:45:26 AM
I prefer to use scientific information for decisions
5/22/2014 12:39:46 AM
5/22/2014 12:28:32 AM
not their expertise
5/21/2014 10:15:30 PM
it is proved that if one summer is hot it will be followed by a cold winter, then a mild winter and
5/21/2014 5:48:32 PM
It's utter nonsense
5/21/2014 5:03:05 PM
Only geld or castrate when moon in feet! Less complications.
5/21/2014 4:41:35 PM
No evidence for effectiveness
5/21/2014 4:40:17 PM
gelding. Had wonderful results with the almanac as a guide.
5/21/2014 4:32:25 PM
It's always right.
5/21/2014 2:14:26 PM
5/21/2014 2:04:46 PM
What for? I already know our multi-year drought isn't ending any time soon.
5/21/2014 1:36:57 PM
Have never looked at it, hardly know what it is or even where to get one...
5/21/2014 11:54:25 AM
No, The predictions are far too vague.
5/21/2014 10:00:49 AM
I've gone by it for years and have had great results.
5/21/2014 8:36:14 AM
We consult it for weaning and castrating and have had great success.
5/21/2014 8:29:27 AM
Usually don't read the almanac, tho have used it for gardening info.
5/21/2014 7:28:06 AM
Never even thought about it.....
5/21/2014 1:36:17 AM
Nope, can't see how they could predict the future.
5/20/2014 10:23:28 PM
I rely on the latest current information to make decisions.
5/20/2014 10:01:28 PM
They really make sense. Old ideas based on making a living on the land often are best today too.
5/20/2014 9:52:58 PM
I use it to tell when riding season will come to an end.
5/20/2014 9:19:13 PM
No clue what it is or why I would do that
5/20/2014 8:56:37 PM
It's interesting but not scientific.
5/20/2014 8:30:18 PM
Most reliable weather, crop management & show planning guide over 50 yrs of farming and horses.
5/20/2014 7:45:04 PM
No more accurate than the weather man!
5/20/2014 7:25:42 PM
I never thought about it. I know people use it for planting
5/20/2014 6:30:59 PM
I take my advise from a third generation farmer...he know his stuff....been right for 14 yrs now...
5/20/2014 4:19:10 PM
We don`t use it for management decisions as it is not based on scientific principles.
5/20/2014 12:50:06 PM
No, but I do consider the FA credible info
5/20/2014 11:22:18 AM
Show me the science
5/20/2014 11:14:51 AM
Always castrate when the signs are in the feet
5/20/2014 10:41:34 AM
Including signs/suggestions for best times to wean foals and castrate colts.
5/20/2014 10:22:08 AM
don't read it
5/20/2014 8:51:13 AM
why in the world would I do that?
5/20/2014 8:42:58 AM
I never have. It's easier to make decisions based on whatever it's doing outside at the moment.
5/20/2014 8:41:04 AM
I use real time real life to manage my horse
5/20/2014 7:42:19 AM
no, I think watching hornets nests are more accurate. High nests mean bad winter coming.
