    PSSM crew - Vitamin E

    Wonder whether a medicine syringe and bottle adapter might work for you? Rather than a different product entirely. I was just thinking along the lines of administering something like metacam where you just draw how many ml you need at a time out of the bottle entirely mess free (well until you...

    Horses in the field

    Personally in your position, id be buying a couple of decent muzzles (may take a few to find the right one for the right horse) and start getting them used to them and eating through them now, rather than taking a risk with my horses legs through a fence like that. It doesnt take much to sever a...

    Bit chomping

    you could try a hanging cheek as its more stable in the mouth, My mare used to go nicely in a ported mullen mouth hanging cheek. You may have to play about a bit to see if it makes a difference, maybe borrow a couple of different types if you can to save spending and then the horse not getting...

    pony screaming and stomping

    totally normal iv found, some horses do it, others just blow and show off, a new horse is very exciting! Darcy, my boy, goes through it all, he blows with neck arched looking rather proud, then he squeals and strikes out, sometimes more than once then he will take off round the field like a...

    pony screaming and stomping
