    Magnetic Pastern Bands

    I used the Equistreamz ones. I am never sure if these things help but I used them on an injured horse who was badly lame and it did seem to help slightly.

    Westgate lab- why so pricey?

    I switched too poopost last year after reading about them on here. I had used Westgate for a long time prior to that. I find the poopost service just as good as Westgate so will very sticking with them. Definitely a lot cheaper if you have a few horses to test.

    Nose net

    I like the equilibrium ones too, have had mine a few years and it is still in tact. The full/cob should be fine size wise.

    fly mask reccomendations

    I really like the equilibrium ones, I am not sure how good they would be for eye clearance though.

    Rugging for temperature changes.

    Mine is in a 100g with no neck too. Out overnight. I'd rather slightly too cold than too hot.

    Economical feeds

    I don't feed much hard feed either, just a handful of chaff and a couple of handfuls of cubes.

    How do you know if it's right to PTS?

    I'd turn away for a year too. My horse damaged a ligament in 2020 and he went for various tests, scans etc and the vets were not that optimistic about a recovery. I chucked him in a field for a year, got the physio once a month and he trotted up sound 14 months later. Sometimes a bit of time is...

    Help! Do you pay as a sharer when the horse is lame more than a month?

    I wouldn't expect payment either. I'd be a bit embarrassed to keep asking for money after more than a month or two. Although the cost of the horse will be the same even if the horse is injured, a sharer is paying because they want to ride whereas the owner unfortunately has to take...

    Which Rug is Best Swish or Horseware

    I prefer Horseware but only buy Rambo. I find the Amigo and Rhino pretty disappointing. The straps have come off both after not much wear and my horse is not particularly harsh on his rugs. The Rambo's do seems to last well though and look like new even after years of use.

    Rug dilemma!

    I'd go for a 100g turnout with a 100g liner as well. It is the rug combination I use for 99% of the winter.

    New horse reared :/

    I think you have asked quite a lot of him in a short space of time too, it took me a few months to get my 5yo hacking out the way I wanted him when I first got him. Even then it took a huge amount of calm repetition to get things like opening gates sorted. As someone else said you do need to...

    Afterlife 3

    I binge watched last night too. I don't normally like Ricky Gervais but he is excellent in this.
