    Where are all the smaller horses?!

    I’m 5’8 not as slim as I was but not overweight (according to the bmi thing anyway but I do need to lose at least a stone). I sold a 15.2hh as she didn’t grow as big as expected and I felt like a giant riding her, both height and weight wise. So I definitely prefer 16.1/2. Lots of smaller...

    Thanks for all of the replies. I will keep an eye on her and call on my neighbour when the time is right. Nic Nac - ex batts are just wonderful, IME they are so tame and much less flighty than breeds I’ve had previously. I’ve had them for years but they just don’t seem to last very long. It Is a...

    Chicken help

    Thank you all for the replies. I’ve given her some banana, cream, bread and sugar mashed up this morning and will try all of the suggestions made.

    I touched a rat!!!!!

    There is a good horror story about a man who is driven crazy by rats. I don’t dislike them but they were too close to the house, cause a lot of damage and the stink is gross, so felt I had to act. The first I drove into the trap I felt awful, first creature I’ve killed, not it’s fault it had...
