    Following on from 'dying breed' - are we all competing less?

    Not odd at all, it was probably "decided" long before you went in to the ring who the winner was, sadly that's showing for you.

    Following on from 'dying breed' - are we all competing less?

    I used to go out showing & dressage nearly every weekend. Shows have got so expensive and it also irritates me that I have to pay for memberships on top of entry fee's for local agricultural shows which are poorly attended, chaotic, poor choice of judges and don't offer qualifiers. The hanging...

    Pictures A "what breed is my horse" question

    I don't see Dales or Friesian either. If I was guessing, maybe ID x Cob x Connie?

    Wits End with Colic and more colic

    They are such a massive worry. I have a pony that had frequent recurring gas colic, every 2 -3 weeks. He was already on a low sugar/starch diet and nothing was helping him, I was at my wits end too. After a lot of research I put him on Equishure and the difference in him is impressive. It has...

    Hyperkeratosis / Mallanders

    I have a pony that suffered badly from Mallanders, I managed it the best I could with malaseb and flamazine. I also had him on a vit/mineral supplement which had quite a high daily dose of magnesium (10g). He had been on it for 3 years. I took him off it due to unexplained anxious behaviour...

    Things found in feed, what would you do?

    I've had many problems with this company and their products. Currently using their chaff but 2 bags, one after the other, have had big mouldy clumps and the bag was tainted with a mouldy smell. I'm the same Louby, I'll not be buying anymore.

    Disinfectant - which one?

    Virkon or Fam 30, cheap wellies, a good stiff hand brush for scrubbing boots and keep a small knapsack sprayer made up in your car. It's always be best to be seen to be doing something proactive. Boiler suit or cheap disposable overalls. Spray boots & scrub on arriving and leaving, also spray...

    Worried - ulcers may have returned - suggestions please :(

    You have mention ordering Sucralfate, as she has had gastric ulcers in the past I would also consider using Omeprazole at the same time to reduce the production of stomach acid. I would also keep her on the Gut Balancer for just now to help support her hindgut and I would also consider taking...

    Best (Quiet!) Battery Operated Clippers

    I have the Heiniger Xplorer clippers too and love them. They are quiet, light, battery lasts easily for a full clip and batteries charge very quickly.
