    Which hoof boots do you recommend?

    Ok thanks for that, will take a look. Yes we need some hoof boot experts! There seem to be a few different ones about so need some recommendations :)

    Which hoof boots do you recommend?

    I have an ex-racer that constantly pulls her shoes off in the field, have tried fronts only and aluminium plates with no success so have decided to try and go without shoes. She is currently rather footy in front although but her hinds are fine as they have been shoe-less for nearly a year so...

    Trying to sell my filly and low price is attracting the wrong people!!

    Tell me about it, I recently dropped the price of a 10 y.o. PC pony and had some right hassle, the woman who bought him turns out to be a right load of trouble and am getting nothing but hassle (see my recent post on here). I am gutted that he has ended up with someone who quite obviously...

    With people like this why would anyone want to sell horses for a living??

    Yes I think big time trouble-maker, the last pony they bought I believe got sent back because it 'kept going lame'. I did question how can you age off bloods, she said liver, kidney function so what happens when for example a 5 yo horse is exposed to ragwort and has liver damage compared to a 5...

    With people like this why would anyone want to sell horses for a living??

    Cut a long story short, someone recently came to view a pony I had put up for sale, travelled a fair way and spent approx 3 hours at my place viewing him in which time they got to see him being ridden on the flat and over a jump, then rode him themselves on the flat and over a jump and were then...

    Horsebox insurance can you pay monthly?

    Does anyone know of a company that does horsebox insurance where you can pay monthly? Pay my car insurance monthly and can't really afford the lump sum at the moment. It's a 3.5t box.

    How much is this horse worth???

    Depends is she doing affiliated or unaffiliated? In current market time of year I'd say no more than £1500.

    Not sure about what happens in the winter!!

    mwahahahaha I use a calor gas heater in my horse's stable, goes great with the hay and straw... joke but just read some of your other posts too and perhaps this is why the 'annoying girl on your yard' as you put it is forever trying to 'help' you....

    my horse is eating acorns!!

    Hmm Greenguard mask might work, the gaps are rather small in those but again you can't leave it on 24/7 so unless you are bringing him in during the day/night it's prob not the best solution. Probably the cheapest and safest option is to fence off around the trees, after reading this I'm a tad...

    what is this called and where can I buy one?

    LOL prob gonna get slated for this but I wonder if this would work for a pony that's learnt to buck, spin 90 degrees and drop his shoulder after a jump but always to the right..?!?!! :D

    Could she go barefoot?

    Backs went last February and she was footy at first but isn't anymore so was thinking could do the same with the fronts. Can't do much more than the odd hack time-wise as I have a youngster but also as she is retired companion through injury and although is sound now she is blind in one eye so...

    Could she go barefoot?

    My 19 y.o. TB currently is shod in front but only goes on the road once a week for no more than an hour so as I need to make some cutbacks right now I'm considering just having the shoes taken off. Her feet are typical TB feet so aren't the best but the hoof wall tends to crumble around the nail...

    SHOES how much are you paying????

    Mine just have fronts and that's £30 so a full set I believe is £60, wish we could get them done for £40 around here like some of you!
