    Another loose dog incident at an event. Time to ban dogs?

    Cheers for that, you want me to pay to travel to volunteer, then pay to get my dog looked after. Like that is going to happen.

    Another loose dog incident at an event. Time to ban dogs?

    As a volunteer at BE events, what am I supposed to do with my dog when I'm at an event for up to 12 hours if I can't take her with me?

    Yard owner caused colic

    I would expect the first step to be speaking to the yard owner or manager and seeing if you can get your money back. You do sound well out of there!

    Would you expect a YO to be able/willing to remove a shoe?

    Some yard owners aren't even horsey, so as a general rule, no I wouldn't. I would expect them to be able to call a farrier.

    Do you look like your dog?

    My dog is a slim blonde with melting brown eyes. I'm nothing like that

    LC lurcher gobbles down Chudleys Sensitive Lamb, but she gobbles down anything.

    Most & Least Favourite Eventer

    Andrew Nicholson for being so still and balanced. Mark Todd for being one of the nicest human beings on earth. Ian Stark for being the second nicest human being on earth and for having the cohones to ride Murphy Himself to such success. Least favourite riders are the ones who ride honest horses...

    How long for hock injections to work

    Was it a steroid injection? If yes, then in my experience (sample size of two), there should be improvement by now.

    What's happened to Wocket Woy? Anyone know?

    There's a Facebook group 'Racehorses where are they now'. I haven't checked it, though, because I loathe Facebook!

    Help to put weight on my 5 year old staillion

    Have a hunt round using the search function and you will find several old threads that might give you a few ideas. My personal favourite is boiled barley (if you have a spare slow cooker).

    Catrophen injections

    My mare had a series of 3 Cartrophen injections in the second half of last year. I can't recall the dose each time, but they seem to have made an enormous difference.

    Mare bucks in season

    I had a mare who got tender behind the saddle coming into season at the beginning of each year. Oestress really helped her.
