    People in Co. Longford - Looking for a specific vet practice

    is it a bay called Morgan by any chance? I sold one to one of his daughter and she jumped him for a few years but then sold him to a fella named Robert Harrison who sold him again and he ended up in a dealers yard in Scotland , I did email them but never got an answer :( I lost track of him

    Also in Breeding , can you look at my mares lady bits

    the size of each mares vulva will vary , you should know whats normal for each horse , if hers looks differently than it normally does Id have to ask is there any chance she could be pregnant now? does she have signs of bagging up ?

    Does my mini shetland have to wear a bridle for in hand shows?

    Im pretty sure he should wear a bridle but what the heck , if its an unaffiliated show put slip on him and go and have fun , you might ask the judge what the correct head gear is and get it for him later on
