    Best (least worst) tasty feed to get vits and mins in

    Another one for beetroot powder here. It also contributes a few useful extra phytonutrients to the diet (and stains everything a fetching shade of pink 😁)

    We got CHICKENS 😁😍

    They look adorable! I started with 4 very pretty purebreds a few years ago and now have 20 all-sorts - I think I should really stop there but it's so hard when there are so many lovely breeds to choose from, not to mention coloured egg layers :oops:

    Tokyo Pentathlon SJ

    It has been pointed out on SM that the pictures supplied by the UIPM to reassure people that poor Saint Boy still has all his legs, etc., were taken in the winter (no leaves on the deciduous trees...).

    With mine it seems to be mostly midges bumping into him - so it's seasonal but doesn't seem to be directly related to pollen. Presumably a hypersensitivity thing. He will do it occasionally with winter gnats too. Full face mask best, sometimes with a nose net underneath (I use Le Mieux comfort...

    Indicators don’t work around horses?? Amused confusion

    I think I've spend every hack since I got back on board in February ranting about this very thing. Don't they think we might find it useful to know where they're going?! It just confirms to me that they don't see riders as road users. Never had the pointing though - that boggles the mind...
