    Yes other horse is definitely leaving But get up this morning to find my half sorted rugs "missing" - she'd moved them!! Text her as she wouldn't answer the phone, asked why she didn't say anything when I was stood talking to her last night and did she realise I was paying for that stable...

    What is this?

    Dependant on the age of the horse, i would assume either a coat change, or untreated fungal infection. Vet and skin scrap would be a safe starting point.

    Uncomfortable being ridden from grass

    I try not to ride mine off grass at any point as she gets swollen glands and cant flex and bend through her neck. Easily sorted she has two hours in before ridden work, or is ridden from the stable first thing. Horses for courses, just need to find the right routine for you.
