    mum/daughter share horse

    I am horse hunting soon, as my main horse is now retired, and I want to get a horse that my little one can ride as well as myself if she shows an interest later on as she is only 15 months at the moment (but not a wasted purchase if she doesn't!). However, I am 6ft and daughter is obviously too...

    my old boy was rugged today and also yesterday as he is a poor doer with arthritis, but the two fatties were left out unrugged and have not shrunk today :D

    I am currently pregnant and am due in the midst of winter, when mucking out and haynet filling will be in peak demand....No option to leave out 24/7 for the worst of winter due to yard rules. Has anyone hacked how to juggle a newborn baby and looking after a horse?!

    does anyone work with horses who is allergic?

    Question in the title really! I am looking at different opportunities to further my equine experience but I'm actually allergic to horses...has anyone worked with horses whilst allergic and built up a tolerance/found ways to cope? I'm not allergic to my own horses anymore, except for when they shed.

    best hat for back of head/neck protection

    can anyone recommend a hat that is particularly good at protecting the top of the neck/back of the head? Freak previous injury means I must protect it - currently have a charles owen AYR but too little cover for my liking and doesn't quite cover that part!
