    Maybe found a problem to water in paddock freezing

    Salt water in plastic bottles floating on the top. You need some water in them so they don't just blow away, and to keep them bobbing about. The salt lowers the freezing point and prevents the water in the bottles freezing. There was some ice, but it was thin enough for the horses to break it...

    Best way to clean kk ultra bits

    If you want 'as new', then I soak them in white vinegar (not for long!) and polish with toothpaste on the mouthpiece, Brasso on the rings.

    Can I feed grass clippings to my horse?

    The racing yard I worked in fed hand-pulled grass with each feed. I'd pull it, rather than cut it and feed as soon as possible afterwards.

    Could he have got sand up there? That might well cause some irritation, especially if he is a bit on the sensitive side.

    Singing Dogs

    Many years ago, the landlord of the pub in the village I was living in at the time, invited a busker he saw performing in town to play in the pub. Said busker turned up, armed with a guitar, harmonica and a lurcher that sang the harmonies. Different....

    This makes me so angry

    We paid over the odds for a badly put together, little cob mare with untreated PPID, recent laminitis, feather mites and sweet itch. She came from a budget dealer (nothing wrong with the dealer) in a bit of a state (probably stress related), having only been with them a few weeks. She is in...

    Opinions of sand as a school surface please

    Not all sands are the same. There are many different types and grades available, some much more suitable than others.
