    What you’re opinion on quiet livery yard

    We are on a farm with a few other liveries. Loads of turnout compared to your average yard. Can go for days without seeing anyone but we have a little WhatsApp group to keep in touch. It’s lovely and quiet and the horses seem so settled

    Dry exercise-induced cough - WWYD until the vet comes?

    I’ve just had the vet out as my boy started coughing. Apparently there are quite a few dry coughs around this year as the ground has been so dry. I’ve been soaking any hay and feeding it off the dry ground which seems to have helped. See what the vet says, hopefully nothing major

    Learning to be alone in the field!

    I’ve worked hard on this and have done it slowly by taking the last horse away to the gate then returning it and making the gap longer each time. My youngster is now fine left alone. I normally open the fence for a bit more grass for him to keep him occupied

    In or out in summer storms??

    We didn’t have storms really overnight but it absolutely chucked it down for hours. We had a bit of flooding. They all looked a bit miserable this am.

    In or out in summer storms??

    Mine are generally settled in or out but one they are out for spring they very rarely come in. Plus as mentioned above one of mine has a bit of cough so would be better out. not sure why I’m so undecided 🤷‍♀️ it’s the first bad weather in absolutely ages so not used to it lol

    In or out in summer storms??

    Mine are tough and hardy and everything else will probably stay out. I’m Just not so keen when it’s at night time and not around.

    In or out in summer storms??

    The main weather warning is for rainfall. I just wonder if we had flash flooding would they freak out.

    In or out in summer storms??

    We have a severe weather warning mainly overnight for rainfall, hail, thunder and lightning. We’ve had a few short sharp ones last couple of days but this looks fairly persistent (although always a bit hit and miss with storms). Mine don’t really have any major shelter in there summer paddock...

    DIY Yards - Rotas & Coronavirus

    We are diy (farm basically) and never had any restrictions. They did all get turned out 24/7 as the pandemic started and we’ve just kept our distance. There are only a handful of us so it’s worked fine.

    Those with horses and young kids...

    I’ve become lazy and overweight with lock down. My fault, I’ve allowed this to happen. I’ve become too comfortable with doing virtually nothing.

    hi Yes they are, in fact last week I hacked and they rode their bikes, we had a nice time actually. the more I think about it, the more it’s about a lack of motivation rather than anything else. I’ve clearly not adapted well to having my normal routine removed. I used to ride after work at...

    Those with horses and young kids...

    Thank you everyone. I feel like I’ve become so lazy but I think I’m just mentally tired from having the kids around constantly. I flit between thinking a set routine would be good for me right now to just turning them away and reassessing in the autumn. Every day I change my mind!!

    Those with horses and young kids...

    One of my horses is a youngster but he is already turned away so that doesn’t bother me so much right now although it would be nice to get some groundwork in place but that can wait I suppose. My ridden one would be fine being turned away, I think I’m just struggling with the lack of routine, I...
