    I just bought my first cob! Introduction + feed advice + photos!

    Oh no but at least it's smaller and soft, so still going in the right direction. Hopefully the thought of eating grass will help him shift the last bit.

    Aww Rigsby! Those splats around his stable look hopeful. He's lucky to have you and Mr Red looking out for him, I'm sure they know when they need help and let us do things that they normally wouldn't tolerate so well.

    Travelling without breast bar / nothing to put head over.

    My baby pony arrived in rear facing 3.5ton box with no breast bars, he came off after a very long journey very happy and didn't look as though he'd been using his head or his bum to balance on the wall on either end. They sent me loads of photos and a video of him on the way and in every one of...

    Really hope he keeps improving and things keep moving in the right direction.

    Oh no, I was so hoping it would be good news this morning. Will be thinking of you both and keeping everything firmly crossed for Rigsby.

    Raynauds sufferers- amazing glove find!

    Neoprene lined wellies, they are ugly but it's worth it for the warm feet. For the first time in my life my feet are never cold and painful.

    New livery should the stable be spotless

    I wouldn't care about about dust or cobwebs, I'd just be happy that my horse had somewhere to go where they'd be happy and have friends.

    Poor Rigsby, hopefully it's a good sign that he's more worried about the lack of food than the colic! Fingers crossed he makes a speedy recovery.

    Can anyone recommend fleece lined gloves that let you do up buckles?

    The warmest gloves I've found are the thinsulate leather look ones with a fleecy lining that I picked up in the petrol station one day when I'd forgotten my gloves and couldn't face painful cold hands without them.

    Have you ever disliked a horse based purely on 'vibes' when it wasn't doing anything actually wrong (or not worse than a horse you do like)?

    There is only a few horses I've actively disliked, once, back when I was a groom there was one horse who no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't get on with and he made it clear the feeling was mutual, so I just avoided him as much as possible, aside from the odd times I had to ride him when...

    What's Your 'I'm Being An Idiot' Moment?

    I have also inadvertently rugged my ponies to various things they are stood next to at the time, luckily I do try to do some work on spook busting but they all pretty quickly learn that their human is in fact an idiot and most of their spook busting training is accidental. My latest idiot...

    Does anyone use a training band system - PAP?

    So sorry you're in this situation, I know it sucks for you but Lari is lucky to have found someone like you that will try their best for him, I really hope all your work with him pays off and you can get to enjoy him soon x

    Do horses living out lay down at night?

    I assume mine do judging by the pony shaped flat patches of grass, and grass stains on the old ones knees and poo stains on the young one because out of the whole field he just has to lie in a pile of poo every time. I quite often catch them lying down first thing in the morning as well.
