    Best terrier for children?

    Tbh I couldn't remember who it was and was too lazy to look back. You only beat someone else to the punch though I'm sure - it's a rule of hho what breed threads that a Labrador must be offered up I'm just joking around by the way, I do appreciate that for an awful lot of people a lab is the...

    Best terrier for children?

    Also, when I first opened this thread I thought 'despite a terrier being specifically asked for I bet someone suggests a Labrador', and sure enough... :p

    Best terrier for children?

    My vote would be for Dandie Dinmont too. Mainly so that you can share many many pics on here and I can live vicariously 😁 (I have a full house currently).

    Can you use water from soaked hay on to water the garden?

    I don't soak hay, but I do use all the water from the washing up, the washing machine drain and the kitchen sink drain on my flowers. I haven't killed anything yet.

    It’s no longer true that hard work…

    But that's the thing isn't it - it's not sour grapes to point out that riding top level modern dressage horses is almost a completely different sport to riding dressage on the bulk of the leisure horse population. A lot of the pre-requisites for a good (as in high scoring) dressage test are...

    Thinking about buying a PRE

    Absolutely. Unfortunately their tendency when confused/anxious/unbalanced to tuck their noses in, tense through their toplines and move their legs real quick is what a lot of people think Iberian movement is. But there are some beautifully ridden and trained PREs out there at all levels of both...

    So as not to derail another thread: does your dog need to bring you toys when you come in?

    None of my dogs bring me presents when I arrive. They expect me to bring them presents. Dee used to drop toys on your feet when she was younger to get you to play. But neither of the others willingly bring you a toy. The westie just steals them off the others and hoardes them and the other...

    Was it love at first sight?

    Of my three now: Dabs - arrived to see a nicely bred 3yo and found a goof of a horse who happily came in and stood in the stables on his own, merrily licking dust off the beams. I just knew I had to have him. 10 years later he is still a massive goof but is really more my OH's horse now. There...

    Pity party- all welcome BYOB

    Oh no, that's so so pants 😒 I'll join the pity party - I can bring an inexplicably vomitting westie and a problem with fleas that are apparently complete immune to all treatments, so I'm now just washing them all every couple of days 🙄. I also have wine and quite a lot of spirits (As an...

    There are 2 types of horses... Just for fun!

    There are two types of horse... Those that are a suitable mount for a pub ride And those not worth owning

    Observation from dressage writing

    There generally won't be a vet in attendance at an unaffiliated prelim. I'm not sure if it is even a requirement at low level affiliated shows is it?
