    Hunting and Equine flu

    That doesn't sourd very responsable,we are Also in the breeding season or at least as far as the thouroublood world is concerned ,a little unfair for the foals and broodmares.I would not send a mare over from the continent if she or her progeny would be in danger of catching the desease.....

    Where is Woodlander Farouche?

    Farouche is not a palomino?! When I last asked news about her(about18 months ago) I was told she had got some good results in The Spanish Sunshine tour, since then there has been no news ,so I pressume she must have hurt herself and is now, hopefully recovering?

    Fat or in foal

    Hi, I tried being a lurker but can't help getting involved! I agree with Clodagh that buckets are a no no, foals DO get drowned or badly hurt.As you know they are very wobbly when first trying to get up to keep their balance, most of the time they keel over, sometimes on their nose straight into...

    Cheltenham Day 2

    If Ruby Walsh felt the horse wasn't right, for Heaven's sakes why didn't he pull up? Surely he must know the horse well and his wellfare should have come first, the horse missed judged several jumps, the writing was on the wall, it was painful to Watch the pair were Lucky to come home without a...

    What breeds of horse do you NOT like?

    Ah the Criollos, They are wonderful,small compact,great fun! The Brazilian "Mangalarga" which is their idea of an Andalusian is really quite horrid,narrow ,spindly and quite neurotic,or at least the ones I came across!Here in Europe I most deslike the french trotter;they have great big...

    very poorly foal, any ideas or thoughts?

    Thank you Maesfen for your advice,I must confess I realise that I was already feeding him Podolac starter by Pavo and not by Cavalor's as I had previously stated,I also give him a handful of sure grow daily,normally I would never feed such a young foal especially as he is still with his...

    very poorly foal, any ideas or thoughts?

    Thank you Paddy555,I will add micronised linseed although he already gets linseed oil,I have tried giving alfalfa pellets,but none of my horses like them.For the time being he enjoys Cavalor's Podolac or foal creep pellets ,probably because they contain milk pellets!I live in Belgium and Copra...

    very poorly foal, any ideas or thoughts?

    You do not offend at all,that was the reason I posted in the first place,as for not looking after it ,you could not be furthest from the truth.This foal and its mother are brought in twice a day and fed separately so that I can check how much the little one gets to eat.Having in the past had a...

    Wormer ivermectin- devastated

    I am so sorry for your loss,I was warned by my vet that ANY form of horse wormer is a potential dog killer.We are very careful with them,I have minis which means some tubes are only partially given so the rest is always carefully stored away. Care should also be taken in not allowing them to eat...
