    Damp Breeze Block wall - stables - Recomendations please

    So a little update - had a good look this evening, the two outer breeze block walls are 5.5 blocks high, there are various tide marks on the walls from past drenchings, but for the most worst tide marks are on the 3rd and 4th full block, the final top full block remains relatively dry in most...

    I can 100% say that in this case it is not condensation -I have had him in stables with condensation issues, this is not the case here.

    Trust me, there is enough pee to cause this. The partition is old wood, the only time it is dry is when the horses are out in the summer, the owner puts a thin covering of sawdust on the floor and their mucking out practice is very different to most... their bed is pretty damp to start. The...

    I do have the concern that painting would cause the paint to bubble from the wet underneath, whatever I do do, my plan will be to use a sealant around the bottom of the walls to ensure water doesn't get in at the bottom, I can't totally moisture proof the stable but I can reduce it for sure

    I would say this is definately not condensation, it *may be rising damp* although there is nothing really on the outside of the wall, it's just wall. We are in Cumbria and that wall is the one that get's battered by the elements. Don't get me wrong, the internal partition get's wet too, but...

    The yard owner has agreed for me to paint the stable but I won't be painting his entire barn, TBH I am not sure he would be OK with me painting the outside anyway.

    Hi there, The Beast is at a lovely yard in a big barn. However, the barn has breeze block walls, these get damp and I have about a foot of damp bed around the stable. I am looking for some kind of sealant paint I can use once he goes out at night ready for prepping the stable for next...

    Hunting is in a spot of bother

    I agree this is utterly abhorrent and entirely indefensible but also agree with L&M with the statement that please do not assume that all hunts/huntmasters behave this way... this is utterly sickening but not illustrative of everyone who is *pro hunt* I hope these two are strung up and quartered!

    What a difference a year makes!!

    And not just for the beast but for us all!! So hello guys, would you believe it - it has now been over a year since The Beast and I moved up to Cumbria, for me it was coming home, but for Ben... what a journey when the furthest he had ever been was under 50 miles away to Royal Cornwall show...
