    Good quality leather headcollar?

    I had a mare I needed to turn out in a head collar, she was chestnut and so thin skinned. I used the shires cushioned travel head collar - fairly sure I paid about £30'ish for it, link underneath (hope it works!)...

    Newton Stud slurry death

    There are 3 sides to every story, your side, my side and the truth - in this case I suspect the truth will never be told. Very sad, I just can't imagine it.
