    Knee blocks for jump saddle

    These are fab: I swapped them on my jump saddle for these as hubby as a Farrington International event with these blocks and really comfy and secure.

    Karidox... How the heck do I get pony to swallow it?

    We added a black flexible tube to the end of a syringe, secured with a jubilee clip, when we had to give Karadox..and then Fabio. You can then get the tube in far enough then syringe in. He accepted that more - possibly as it went straight down and missed his taste buds?! I don't...

    Duct tape on plastic Jump poles?

    I have some red and white jump poles from Poly Jumps that have severely faded in the sun. Would it work to use coloured duct tape on these to smarten them up?

    If its for a potential share and the horse is only a mild shiverer i wouldn't have any issues. However i would never buy another with shivers. I had Fabio from a 4 year old and he had very mild shivers. We done everything, dressage, jumped, hacked. He was fantastic until he went downhill rapidly...

    Winter faecal water syndrome

    I can't have my boy on haylage - even though ours is drier and more like wrapped hay, it makes it worse! Have to have separate hay for him as all our others are better on haylage (one with COPD). I have found that adding activated charcoal and brewers yeast has helped a lot. I was feeding...

    How do you clip your horses quarters (trace/blanket clip)?

    For the half circle i use a flexi curve as you can literally guide the clippers around it to get a nice shape and replicate the same size on the other side.

    Why do people buy dogs with potential welfare problems related to extreme conformation and inherited disease?

    Sadly 101 Dalmatians done them no favours with people buying them without researching the breed. They need LOTS of exercise, on a par with collies and springers, they never tire!

    Why do people buy dogs with potential welfare problems related to extreme conformation and inherited disease?

    *Dalmatian* - I had 2, nicest natured dogs ever. Adored people. However a lot of people get them and underestimate the amount of exercise they need so sadly you see a lot of overweight ones around. We lost our last boy in May at the age of 15. My friend has an English Bulldog - although was...

    Wychanger Barton saddles

    Does anyone know if there's any way to get info on these saddles? I've seen one that may suit for my boy, it has a serial number on it. I have called the shop and the lad i spoke to said they wouldn't have any info on them anymore. Just wondered if there was any other way i could find this/contact?
