    Someone earlier suggested Lola, definitely pop culture and may be she will "look like a woman and talk like a man" as she grows up. Seriously nice looking pup

    Mine do, more to save the ground really as they both hate getting wet and stamp about in their gateways turning the entrance to clay soup!! Interesting that one or two of you say your horses drag their hooves going out if the weathers bad, my highland is the same, to the point that I start to...

    Rubber mats on half the floor?

    Rubber mats on half the floor?

    Is there a way to successfully secure them so they dont slip? Really dont want to do the whole stable as it has a leak on one side which Id rather leave clear so it drains through, pony doesnt need the whole area bedded either. Is there a good way to secure the front edge so they dont slip...

    Because depending on the size of your bum, I have a pair of Derby House, unworn, white jods that I bought and never wore, you could have had a long loan

    Free to any home.......

    My 3 will sleep quite happily until my boss phones me, then all 3 decide we are being attacked, burgled, invaded by aliens or some such disaster and start synchronised barking. He has got used to me shouting "BE QUIET" or words to that effect half down the phone and no longer takes offence!
