    Pictures Week two - filly is fat!

    Oh dear ☹️ I would have just carried on doing what you were planning to do. The other horse will shout etc but it’s not the end of the world. He will have to get over it.

    Pictures Week two - filly is fat!

    Yup. My vet was out to my 2yr earlier for something unrelated and asked me if his weight has always been this good 😂😂

    Youngster turns into me when leading

    That’s really helpful thanks. My youngster has done nothing but lead in and out of his field so need to up my game. Thanks

    Youngster turns into me when leading

    That’s exactly what I’m aiming for. What do you do when they get ahead of you though? That’s where it starts with us, he gets excited and starts prancing about then feels the rope so turns into me?

    Ye I did wonder that actually. We would get to where he wants to be 100 x quicker if he just walked forwards rather than sideways 😂

    Horse colours and flies.

    My horse is grey and he’s never been massively bothered by the flies or midges etv. My new Youngster is dark bay and they definitely bother him more. I usually get away with a few squirts of fly spray for my grey on bad days and that’s about it!!

    Itchy Skinned yearling

    Oh check my recent posts! I have a 2yr old with mildly itchy but scabby patches of skin. I thought it might be sweet itch but luckily not. I ended up having the vet out today. She scraped the skin and sent samples off. She thought maybe microscopic type notes so gave me a sulphur wash, but most...

    I get my 2yr old in once a week or so just to groom/feet used to coming in etc. Today he had the vet. The vet was late so he was in a super strop by the time she got there. I knew I was in for a challenge putting him back out 😂 He doesn’t read/buck/kick etc but he does this snake neck thing and...

    What were the first signs of sweetitch if your horse has it?

    Just to update.... Vet just been. Took some scrapes. Doesn’t think sweetitch. She thought maybe mites or something microscopic that he’s reacted to. She said it’s like his body has gone into overdrive and produced all this greasy dandruffy type skin. She gave me a sulpher wash but reckons it...

    Thank you. He wasn’t fed at all till about 2 weeks ago and I’ve started him on some linseed oils, chaff and a vit supplement. Hoping that may help

    What were the first signs of sweetitch if your horse has it?

    I’ve treated him several times for lice so would be shocked if it’s that (always me first point of call) It’s like the skin is quite scaley in these patches? Like lizards skin? 😂

    What were the first signs of sweetitch if your horse has it?

    These are more under his mane or on the mane line rather than rubbing his mane. I’ve now got my vet coming tomorrow as I’ve treated for lice, ring worm, fungal etc and it’s still there. Will report back

    What were the first signs of sweetitch if your horse has it?

    Those pics were from a month or so ago. Now he has lost some more coat the patches on his neck look larger and dryer. His chest now looks a lot like his face. And his arm pits. Can’t see any on his body or tail etc No skin has broken
