    Should I hit the panic button?

    Congratulations! I'm glad he's arrived safely and Mum and baby doing well. Looking forward to names and photos! Hope you get some rest (between hours of foal watching sessions)

    Kate Greenhalgh neglect

    I'm utterly disgusted that she hasn't been treated more harshly and that she showed no remorse (assuming that to be true). What an absolute b*tch.

    Mctimoney versus physio

    The Mctimoney definitely considers him holistically and is linking in with my vet about another issue he has so she can help him as much as possible. He does have some issues and will always have but I'm happy to work with him on those by reducing work as required and all this aims at keeping...

    Mctimoney versus physio

    Interesting. I thought mctimoney was gentle but I was shocked by how sore he was after. But he is a delicate flower who doesn't know what stoic means! If it's sore he definitely tells everyone all about it and he would have been holding himself badly because of his hock soreness. I used...

    Mctimoney versus physio

    In theory yes I could but I'm not sure that much therapy is needed. I can't totally understand the difference and didn't know if I am being thick! I know there is a difference but I'm not sure in what way that impacts my horse. The mctimoney was very good but I was surprised at how intensive it...

    Mctimoney versus physio

    I'm a bit confused about the best person to use and the difference between the two options and would be grateful for any help. The background: I'm trying to keep my horse well and fit by giving him reasonably regular treatment with a view to helping him maintain as much straightness and...

    Kate Greenhalgh neglect

    I've just read the comments (I'm local to this) and am wondering who her vet was as it is suggested they were involved/ complicit with the neglect? Unless I've misunderstood the comments - I hope I have!) Bloody awful that she has behaved like this, poor horses.

    Oh blimey! Sorry you're having such a challenging time, good job you're at the yard with an experienced YO. It's going to be a beautiful foal as Mum is gorgeous. Good luck xx

    Sorry that you're going through such a stressful time and fingers crossed for the vet visit today. Hoping that it's just spring grass belly 🤞😊

    A fitted hi vis tabard with pockets...

    V-bandz do one that's thin and has a good size pocket. Has velcro either side so you can adjust the fit (and make your horse spook if you adjust the velcro whilst wandering up the driveway on a loose rein 😁)

    Owner wont provide an address for viewing

    I think it would be sensible not to attend. It does sound extremely odd behaviour.

    Hock injections - steroid alternatives?

    Useful thread OP, although sorry to hear you are going through this. Mine has just had his second steroid injections into his hocks and the vet has now suggested Tildren. It doesn't sound very nice so following everyone's input with interest. It seems like there are options of: Steroids Tildren...

    Ariat telluride

    If you don't want to use them for riding, the skyline version are just for hiking? No idea if they have better grip than the Telluride but probably as comfortable 😊

    Pictures Someone has a very important birthday tomorrow!

    Thank you for the update JJS, what a gorgeous horse she has become. I can't believe it's 4 yrs and would love to see more updates as she starts out under saddle please. 😊
