    Your Favourtie Rare Breeds....

    You're lucky, I don't know of anymore in my locality. They are considered to be at risk by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

    Your Favourtie Rare Breeds....

    Clydesdales, but I'm biased. My boy. Although not so unusual they are considered to be at risk, but numbers are slowly building.

    Weights and heights of your heavies

    My Clydesdale is 16.3hh, and not exactly sure of current weight, it's over 600kg though. He's looking perfect just now.

    How much work for a 3yo?

    My just turned 4yr old is doing about 20 mins road work 3/4 times a week. Mostly walk, the odd minute of trot. He's such a good little thing he'd happily do more but I want to take things nice and slow with him.

    Is this horse too young for me- any thoughts

    As someone else said, if the horse is right for you, age isn't an issue. I had my confidence well and truly knocked and then knocked again so was looking for an older, steady horse. I now have a 4 year old little gem, I've had him nearly a year now and he's absolutely brilliant. He's quiet...

    living out for winter 24/7

    Mine have always lived out, a Clydesdale, a Warmblood, an Irish Draught and a little cobby type. Now I just have the Clydey and little cob left :( and we are at a new place, they have their own little wood for shelter, as much haylage and feed as they need and 1 will be naked, 1 will have a rug.

    Poo picking with a bad back

    I use a scoop and rake, but having also woken up this morning with a bad back, poo picking's going to have to wait, think pushing the barrow will be too painful. Don't know why it hurts, was busy yesterday but no more than usual, went to bed fine, woke up with painful lower back.

    Amy Winehouse is dead

    Sad for her family, but totally inevitable, she's been on self destruct for too long.

    Irish Draught Horses

    My most wonderful, horse of a lifetime was a beautiful ID. I got her from a rescue centre and when I first saw her I thought she was a bit funny looking, but when I rode her I knew she was mine. Got her home and she was a cow, I learnt so much from her, learnt you didn't tell her what to do, you...
