    Fetlock joint problem

    Would rubber overreach boots velcro-ed on ABOVE the fetlock joint work? Unconventional perhaps but who cares.

    Ah, thanks for confirming spacefaer - and Arzada, pleased to have a contact to the Tetcott at last - well done, many thanks.

    Tetcott or South Tetcott Foxhounds

    Thanks Tiddly, I did find them both in Baily's but unsure if this source is up to date these days and googling both doesn't help in clarifying matters. Arzada, tried twice over past six weeks or so to contact the latter via supporters' club site to no avail which left me wondering if they're...

    Tetcott or South Tetcott Foxhounds

    Is this one and the same pack or are they two separate packs please? Maybe they were once two packs but now amalgamated. If anyone can throw any light on this I would be grateful. Thanks!

    Is there a better way to sort this electric fenced track issue?

    https://www.electric-fence.co.uk/voss-farming-gate-handle-set-with-tension-spring-expands-up-to-5m.html As tda said, attach non-hook end to a point on the post and rail fence with a baler twine loop. Place the hook touching the electric tape the other end.

    North Devon farrier recommendation wanted

    Thanks for taking the time to reply, dunthing. I've managed to find a farrier about 10 miles or so away who is willing to add me to his books so pleased to say I'm now sorted.

    North Devon farrier recommendation wanted

    Please could anyone recommend a farrier between the Bideford - Bradworthy - Bude line and the coast in North Devon please. I've just moved to the area and need to book in horse and pony. Thanks.

    Best Long-Term Fly Repellent?

    And Tri Tec 14 here too. I slightly water it down in the bottle and spray it on (but sponge on faces). On initial application, after a few days it's built up enough to last a good week or so if weather is dry. Fabulous stuff. I've used it for several years now.

    Twisting, turning, high banked Devonshire lanes

    A kind offer neddy man, but if advertised on Rightmove ( keywords 'equestrian, acres, smallholding'), ZooPla, OnTheMarket, Prime Location, News Now Classified and Facebook Equestrian Property sites and any equestrian/country living/leisure sites specific to our areas of interest ie. East Anglia...

    Twisting, turning, high banked Devonshire lanes

    Tiddly - can reverse car no problem but Jeep and trailer's another matter. Yet another thing to consider for sure. Paddy, we're in no way tied as about to retire. Just makes sense if we're uprooting anyway, to live nearer to young grandchildren in Plymouth. Today I shall google-stroll around the...

    Twisting, turning, high banked Devonshire lanes

    Paddy - you're more gung-ho than me. I really don't trust cows en masse, nor pony herds after inadvertently getting in a sticky situation between a herd of conservation ponies (all mares) when riding my own mare on a heath local to me. I had a battle to get out of the gate by the cattle grid...

    Twisting, turning, high banked Devonshire lanes

    Thanks everybody for your enlightening responses. On the whole this sounds encouraging, and Dixie, I know what you mean about rat run tiny roads. They've become a problem in Norfolk too. That, and the rate of development around here are turning tranquil on the buckle hacks into 'glad I've got...

    Twisting, turning, high banked Devonshire lanes

    Contemplating buying a property in Totnes region. Are the typical high banked narrow roads a nightmare to hack on, or do vehicles tend to drive with an expectation of meeting something round corners and drive accordingly? Love the look of the wealth of little lanes and picturesque hacking routes...

    Advice on which Smart Phone to buy for hacking out.

    Cubot King Kong Mini. If I can use it, believe me, anyone can. I'm technologically inept. I specifically got it for What3Words, WhatsApp and I can even work the camera and video thingy all by myself. So proud of myself to have come this far at my age!!!!:p I admit that I've my own phone number...
