    clipping experts

    I use Wahl, I buy it in really big cans from the local Afro-Caribbean hair shops where it's really cheap. But obviously I have no way of knowing if your horse would have a reaction to it!

I put 6 mugs in several bowls in the morning, and take...

    And what's the most unreasonable rule at a livery yard?

    Some of these rules seem totally batty, but as a yard owner I get that we can get driven to extremes by liveries... I'm having major hassles from one that just seems to want to change my whole (very reasonable) set up and system! Re the only buying hay from the yard, the guy I get my hay from...
