    Odd problem with Wellies!

    Hi, haven't been on here for ages, but thought some of you guys may be able to help... I have extremely bony heels at the back, and this means that I constantly wear through the lining of shoes. My last pair of wellies took precisely 4 days to wear completely through the lining to the rubber...

    What is the most comfortable and secure saddle you have owned

    I loved my thorowgood T6. Kent and Masters is just the leather version of thorowgood, so I can imagine that being equally comfortable.

    What illness/injury could cause disunited canter?

    Could be a whole number of things- kissing spines, sacroiliac, saddle, hip problems... Good luck :(

    Cordless Clippers....

    I have liveryman harmonys, which I think are great. Probs wouldn't get through tough feathers, but can't fault them apart from that.

    what do you think of this mare ?

    Well she looks nice but is way overpriced. Having sold the coloured ISH in my sig for substantially less than that, and she was not far off ready to go out and compete... it's a buyers market, get her price down.

    Soaking hay

    We have to soak at work, some horses in the block do have problems, so they all soaked. I hate doing it though, makes my fingers freeze in winter, and the water smells absoloutely foul.

    Thoughts on radios playing all day in yards

    When I'm at work we have the radio on when mucking out, so most of the morning, then i might put it on if i get bored.... its not there for the horses sake though!!!

    Pictures of shapes you've clipped into your horse! (stars etc.)

    The one with all the stars was for demo purposes I think :) I think.... I did a star a few years ago, made a stencil out of sticky back plastic.

    Yes they are quiet. Not sure how great they'd be on a massive cob coat, but they're great for me :)
