    Livery wanted in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

    Found a yard on Livery and Stable Yards South West FB page. Think it's only hunter, full and part though. Might be worth a look?

    Sports bras

    Just had a look at the Inspire - they look great, but start at cup size E so sadly one size too big. Shame that.

    Sports bras

    I would like to know too! M & S used to do a really good sports bra, like a proper bra but with a lot more support and wide straps. Sadly they stopped making my favourite one.

    Alternative to fly masks ? What about this ...

    I have got through a lot of these. My boy doesn't like the full masks - he gets hot and itchy. The most annoying part about these is the tassels come off so easily. He doesn't get the whole thing off - just manages to pull the tassels out. I've just bought another 2 - (QHL make?) can't...

    Kool coat or Aussie allrounder?

    Aussie Allrounder for me too - I have the same type of horse as LP - big in the chest - so just went up a size. Haven't found him getting hot in it, seems to keep nice and cool.

    I had a plum tree at the end of the field of a place I used to live at. The neds would very carefully pick the plums off the tree, munch on them for a bit, then delicately spit out the stones. Never came to any harm. Can't speak of goosegogs though.

    What is the Best Western saddle pad?

    Sorry - my mistake - Maria is The Western Saddler - and she does the Mattes pads.

    What is the Best Western saddle pad?

    Another vote for the Mattes pads - I have one. As far as I know - Maria at The Western Shop still supplies them.

    Would you put a rug on a wet horse?

    I did just this an hour ago - poor chap has been out all night in a fly rug - he was very wet. But I did towel him off first. I've put a rug on a wet horse many times (not dripping wet mind you). They've always been ok. I would add - the rug I put on said wet horses, always had some degree of...

    How to prevent scarring?

    I'm a great user of Camrosa ointment. Used it for years, and still do for minor wounds. Always found healing is fast and the hair grows back well too. It's thick like vaseline, and keeps the flies off too.

    I want to make one of those fly trap thingys - anyone know where I can buy the glue?

    Doberman dog bed help!

    Our old Dobie was more the size of a small horse - no beds seemed big enough - we ended up getting her a second hand 2 seater leather sofa. It was plenty big enough for her to stretch out, and low enough for her to climb in and out of, off the floor so away from any cold draughts, and easy to clean!

    Rubbish horsey areas

    I feel your pain. I have the same problem where I live too. It's a very horsey area, but full of DIY yards. Fantastic if that's what you want - but I need a yard that can do part or (very) assisted DIY. Can I find one? Nope. Loads around the Bristol area - but that means a lot of travelling time...

    Reproofing own turn out rugs

    Excellent advice Andie02, especially the bit about the amount of water domestic machines use - I washed a stable rug the other day - it came out vile- going to try putting it through another rinse cycle and see it that improves things - fingers crossed! I certainly won't bother trying to clean...
