    Vet injured my horse! Should he pay?

    Yes it was an accident... But shouldn't the vet have kept hold of the rasp?? Had the horse jumped forward, then fell and hit his head against the wall (without the rasp in his mouth) and caused damage to himself, this is just an accident, no one to blame, and owner has to pay. But surely...

    Change in behaviour when stabled opinions wanted

    Pretty much 99% of the yards around my area don't offer winter grazing!! 30 minutes turnout in a sand paddock is apparently "more than adequate"... very sad :( Needless to say, I travel a 30 mile round trip to a yard that does offer winter grazing. I wouldn?t have it any other way. OP, you...

    Hi everyone, So, my boy gets rather sweaty round his girth area andsuffered last year with his girth rubbing :( Initially I thought it must be his saddle, so got that checked, and had a new one fitted 5 months ago and it was re checked last month and that's perfect. I also searched and...
