    Do you think a rescue would rehome to me?

    Hi I would wholeheartedly recommend this charity:, they are based in Edinburgh. We have the most wonderful dog from there and they are pretty sensible to everyone's 'real' lives, the rehoming officer is straight forward and practical, I can't recommend them enough.

    Looking for help/ideas on what is going on with my collie.

    When our dog started changing her behaviour from being a strong confident lady to one that shook with anxiety/fear when out on a walk for no obvious reason, I went to see a lady called Samantha Lindley at Broadleys vets in Stirling, she's a behaviourist and pain specialist who got to the bottom...

    Tell me about Connemaras please

    Since buying my Mum one a few years ago I promised myself they would be the next pony I got, so two years ago I bought a lovely Kirtle Connemara yearling from the Hodges in Lockerbie who, if I am totally honest, I picked on gut feeling and I thank god I did as he is the nicest, cheekiest (now) 3...

    Mud fever

    Just wondered what people do with horses that live out 24/7 that have got mudfever? Mine has got scabs around the sides of his fetlock not at the back on his heels, they are crusty (not red or weeping), he comes in each day for about 8 hours so this would be the time I would treat him. Keeing...

    Just checked and I got all four stoked! Just need to not tell Mum until her birthday in January......that's the hard part! Can't wait to see our riders in the flesh, am very inspired by them and am more excited about this than I am about the able bodied Olympic dressage.....

    NFU insurance premium hikes - what was your reaction?

    I got my renewal through from them last month and they wanted to add £20 to my premium so I phoned them and got a pretty standard it seems for them at the moment response giving me the distinct impression they weren't bothered about keeping me or to be honest any equine clients. I shopped...
