    Chatsworth bridleways

    Looking at the OS map there is a bridleway from Calton Lees towards Edensor but nothing in the park closer to Chatsworth House and to the East of the B6012. There are a lot of 'other road/path/track's shown but nothing that is explicitly a bridleway and that you can be sure of being able to have...

    I have one, in my maiden name from several years ago, with an address I have never lived at, and I have never been a BE member. Very odd and I have emailed to query it :confused:

    Any Recommendations For My Trip to Edinburgh?

    We went Dec 2019 so things may have changed but... The dungeon is entertaining and I think you have to visit the castle whilst there. We at at The Outsider, Tower, and The Ivy and I would recommend them all. ETA I've also heard great things about The Witchery and would like to eat there if I...

    Another wanna be vet that didn't quite get the grades. So I did an Equine Science BSc instead and intended going in to veterinary sales afterwards. Couldn't get the sales job without any relevant experience so temp'd in an insurance office instead. I then got offered a permanent underwriting...

    Cardboard Bedding ?

    I have used a few brands previously (now back on shavings in line with current yards rules) and my absolute favourite is Green Mile bedding. It is shreds rather than squares so stays as a fluffy bed yet doesn't more about too much. Green Mile Cardboard Bedding - 30 Bales per Pallet - Nationwide...

    Door kicker

    I appreciate it will not solve your problem now, but once fixed, or for those that do not have a door kicker... be the mean person like myself that doesn't have your horses fed with everyone else! I am the only person that feeds my horses, they have never been fed when everything else on the...

    Keeping the cone on

    What a pain! I am super lucky, we've just had ours spayed and she didn't once touch the wound so was able to go without a cone or suit.

    Keeping the cone on

    Does she really need it? Given the location she cannot lick the wound so the cone is only stopping her scratching at it with her feet. Is she actually bothered enough that she will scratch at the stitches? If yes, would a large self adhesive dressing be enough to protect them instead?

    Stem cell treatment for arthritis - has anyone had it?

    One of mine had Articell injected in to his stifle after arthroscopy showed chondromalacia in the joint. He was still 2/10ths lame at his 8 week follow up. Vets advised that the longer he goes without it having worked the less likely it'll come right. He is now back out with others and the vets...
