    Thank you guys. What's it like up there for work? It would be a huge step for me as I'm moving away from everything and everyone I know baring my family. So I wouldn't know anybody.

    moving good from Devon to wisbeach.

    Thank you. It's quite daunting but also exciting to start a new chapter in my life. I've just not been there so really don't know what it's like. I've had several relationship issues and feel that a new start in a new area with family close by would be good for me. However I've moved to a...

    stallions - DIY livery yards?

    My old mare was the problem, not the stallion on the yard. He was extremely well mannered and never ever looked to break into her field. The mare however would try to get to him however possible even when it resulted her getting stuck on the fence and having to be cut free.

    Why did you leave your last yard/s?

    I left my last yard because my horse was unhappy there. I loved it there but after trying to give him time to settle it seemed to have the opposite effect. He became dangerous to handle so I decided to move back to the place I rented before. Within half an hour of arriving back he was back to...

    Help pony trashed muzzle within 1 day!!

    He was happily grazing when I left, it took him approximately 5 minutes to know what to do. I had been told by his previous owners that he had worn them before. I will try him in the green guard and if he trashes that one then I have no other option but to not turn him out.

    Stopping for a poo ?

    My boy will stop and poo. Even out hunting he has to stop. I try and get him moving but it's a hell of a job to get him to take a few steps till he has finished. I do activily discourage it but without beating the crap out of him (excuse the pun) I don't know what else to try.

    Has This Winter Changed the Way....

    This winter my two have lived out on 2-3 acres and it's well trashed. I'm putting a partition into the field shelter in the summer so they will have a stable and will come in at night and stay in while weather is really bad. Even though they are out 24-7 actually they choose to stand inside all...
