    Abscess healed yet or not?

    Thanks - have been dry poulticing since yesterday. Fingers crossed he'll be sound once reshod!

    Abscess healed yet or not?

    Horse came in hopping lame last Tuesday so 1 week today. Farrier was fab and was there within half an hour to remove shoe and make a small exit hole. Have been using Animalintex, hot poulticing and keeping it covered but he's been turned out 24/7. Started to weight bear much better after...

    Bespoke Hack up

    Mine had been on the calm/digest/detox since January with no improvement. Tried the stepfree but he won't touch his food with it and he cannot be syringed. Had formula tweaked but still no difference after more ££££££££'s spent! Have now given up and am back to googling alternatives.

    How old was your horse when they started going grey from old age

    This is my 28 year old mare - she has next to no grey hairs - one or two in her mane but none on her face yet. The same can't be said for me! (Sorry photo is tiny - click on it to view it)

    Please help shoeing nightmare

    Agree - pain/discomfort was ruled out and in my horses case it was a behavioural issue and that worked for him. Once op has got to the bottom of this horses reason (if she can or indeed decides to persevere with it) then this is just an option I was recommending.

    Please help shoeing nightmare

    I have had amazing results with Naf magic paste on my tb who was very quick to rear and strike out when having his feet done. didn't manage to get it into him soon enough to begin with but last shoeing he had 2 syringes an hour before and he didn't even lift his head - farrier was amazed! You...

    Horse needs sedating to be shod - would you go and try/buy?

    Horse I purchased in August really surprised me first time I had the farrier to him. Nothing was disclosed at sale and he is so placid in other ways I really didn't expect it. Chatting away to farrier, no tenseness or sign that he wasn't keen, then BANG! Up in the air and snatching all 4 feet...

    Would I fit in a 16.5" saddle?

    Try it first. My new tb is short coupled and couldn't take bigger than a 16.5" which his previous owner had made for him. My saddle didn't fit him and thought there was no way I would be comfy in it as 5'8" and medium build but it's the lovliest saddle i've ever sat on so don't rule it out!

    jappeloup dvd

    He was also one of my favourite showjumpers :) I saw the trailer online which looked great (and very dramatic!) but like you will try and get an English version DVD.

    what do you think of this horse (to buy)?

    Cracking horse but yes, that yard is just down the road from me - it is Imperial so your choice whether you take a look or not. He does look a super type though!

    Beautiful pictures, and what a fab surprise! No way would I have looked that elegent perched on the back like that in heels! :D 3 time changes on a circle? Crikey - no wonder the grey looks drenched!

    Bug goes hunter trialling <hatcam> a dilemma & some Dottie pics

    I think he's fab! I'd be seriously interested myself if I hadn't recently found one. Love the headcam - what a nice course for a baby to go round :) I agree, let them come and try him and you'll get a gut feel as to whether you want to part with him maybe.
