    Pony Trekking Buisness Help!

    Don't forget several hats and body protectors - several of each in various sizes of course, that will need to be replaced (hats after every fall) and when the regulations change.

    Cost of Euthanasia Query

    Total for me was just over £600 - no ashes - my daughter couldn't bear the thought of her pony being shot.

    Cost of Euthanasia Query

    I suppose it was just the shock of seeing it in black and white - having spent time this morning cleaning out her stable (in this heat :( :( coming home to the bill and seeing the word just seemed to be the last straw. Again I cannot fault the vet or the disposal guy, both were efficient...

    Cost of Euthanasia Query

    Having re-read my original post - I realise that it may come across as querying the cost of euthanasia which was not my intention - more as to the way the bill it set out - after all the 'medication' for the euthanasia is what it is - I don't see it as being necessary to set the euthanasia out...

    Cost of Euthanasia Query

    Yep - same sort of figure -just surprised that it was set out the way it was - the vet was wonderful, as was the disposal company - the pony was my daughter's pride and joy for 18 years and she was given time to say goodbye before the pony was taken away.

    Cost of Euthanasia Query

    Ok so just wanted to query something. First off let me say that I am no way complaining about the vet, who was superb when dealing with the planned euthanasia of my pony. I just wanted to see what other people paid for the service. Just a little background - much loved older pony with problems...

    Poorly Pony

    Do not panic, 8 years ago our dwb mare fractured her splint bone into 5 pieces, (x-ray photo in my profile album) after box rest/bandaging and care the leg is stronger than ever. She has competed at all disciplines since and has never looked back.

    Essential things all horse owners should know

    Whether you have enough money available to pay for everything - including that 'final decision' (did you win the lottery :) ) That every yard has at least one person who knows better than you/the vet/farrier etc but is really 'all the gear but no idea' That there will always be people who will...

    Good luck with the move, I hope Dave settles well. It is the one time you realise how much 'stuff' you have though :) :)

    Andrew Nicholson and loose dog at Bramham

    Another dog owner here - IMHO ideally ban them or if not a very hefty fine at least £100 - Imagine if a dog with a long lead got loose, chased a horse and got its lead round the horses legs causing it to fall and break its leg resulting in euthanasia, what about injury to the rider. Would the...

    Anyone Others Still Living Out?

    Our WB is out 24/7 currently with a rug - she has access to as much hay as she wants and access to a field shelter which she never uses.
