    How often do you pick out your retired/ non ridden horses feet?

    Mine does get done daily but I my because his feet can get thrushy if left. I didn't even consider it when my old boy was away on retirement livery, he was out in a field so unlike to get anything in it, and I wouldn't expect them to look at his feet unless he was looking off/lame.

    Why does my poo disintegrate?

    Thanks MM, I'll look at Protexin. Meleeka, I think he is, he has his haycube stuffed full, and he usually has a little left over. He doesn't kick it round as it's in the cube. Holeymoley, yes yes out on grass during the day (in the winter) and in at night.

    Why does my poo disintegrate?

    Interesting. His poos are usually fairly soft so maybe a pre/probiotic is needed. Any recommendations?

    Why does my poo disintegrate?

    Is there anything I can do to stop it? Even before he was on linseed, he didn't really have solid lumps, so I don't think it's just the linseed but it's definitely got worse since being on it.

    Retirement livery or keep at yard or field

    Sorry OP but I agree with this. There are worse things that can happen to a horse than to go quietly and peacefully with their head in a bucket of feed.

    In the stable? Overnight?

    Why does my poo disintegrate?

    Ok not MY poo 😱🤣 But my horse's poo disintegrates, which makes it hard to pick up and my bed always looks horrible, brown and dirty. I feed him on chaff and micronized linseed. Yesterday I mucked out my friends horse and it was so easy, her poo remains in nice lumps which makes it quick to muck...

    Overweight cob , best way to

    Brighteyes did give you great advice and you're being over sensitive if you think she was "ticking you off". You've said your horse does 35 miles a month, that's only just over a mile a day, you really need to up the work if you want to keep on top of his weight. Bring him in during the day...

    Odd situation, stop cock being turned off

    Water has stayed on overnight so maybe it was just kids playing silly buggers.
