    Stopping Diy...any yard owners out there?

    Personally I have never done DIY livery, whilst I happy to acknowledge there are undoubtedly many great DIYers the horror stories I hear of some has put me off. I really like the fact that all the horses are in a routine, all get fed at the same time etc and find it makes for happy, content...

    Following on from heavy husband horse question

    Prices are ridiculous at the moment, I have been hunting for a new big school horse for a couple of months and wasn't finding anything suitable despite having doubled my budget - not counting the one I agreed to buy but on getting home after a 5 hour round trip the seller decided she couldn't...

    Tack room essentials

    A free standing saddle horse is great when cleaning saddles as is a hook for cleaning bridles but make sure you can secure it out of the way when not in use so you don't walk into it!

    Towing recommendations please :)

    I'd recommend a Ford Ranger, they're relatively cheap for servicing and parts compared with others eg our Toyota Hilux was significantly more and as pickups are classed as commercial vehicles the road tax is about £270 a year. They also tow very well.

    Neighbour’s stables

    I know it's only a small part of the problem but if they are playing the radio in a workplace they need to have a licence for it.

    How much does scarring affect price?

    I viewed a horse with a scarred knee once from a fall on concrete and he appeared sound, was neat in front jumping etc, however, when the vet went to do flexion tests he couldn't fully flex his knee to the extent required so we decided to pass on him.

    I was watching ITV racing today......

    Sorry, my post wasn't clear, I knew you were referring to handsome Marty and Ace! You will certainly have a contrast with two terrier brains to contend with.

    George certainly isn't thick and I would be very surprised if Colin is found lacking in the brain cell department!

    For those who like to browse ads...

    Horse prices have gone crazy just now. I'm currently horse hunting, I have upped my budget considerably but in the last 2 weeks I have had one fail the vet and 1 I agreed to buy, subject to vetting only to get home from the 5 hour round journey from viewing for the seller to message saying she...

    Failed vetting

    This could have been me writing this, only one of the two I bought last year has been pts but the other has kissing spines so the future is not certain. I had one vetted today which failed, the seller doesn't think there's a problem and I'm sure a less thorough vet will say it's ok. You have my...
