    We made it to the BEACH in NOVEMBER?!

    Fab pics! And happy the Mark Todd coat looks so good on as mums got me the navy one for Xmas! Where’s your silk from? The fur matches great 😁

    Black Friday Deals??

    They’re pretty true to size although I’d size up if you’re unsure. Not as deep in body as PE.

    Native champs report....

    Well the chopped straw was met with total disgust tonight, even from my gannet of a horse! Will see if he’s sampled it by the morning ...

    Native champs report....

    Well done for staying on! Hard luck, but he’s still gorgeous! Off topic but I remember you posting about feeding efeeds chopped straw for your other pony as partial hay replacer. How long does the 22kg bag last you out of interest?! I’ve just got one as trying to get mine to lose a bit of...

    Tips for in hand show?

    That’s great. I already have tweed jacket, white shirt and navy & red tie which all go well together as this is what I wore when eventing my other horse. I either have some dark burgundy-ish trousers or navy, I will try on to see what goes best. Don’t have jodhpur boots but do have some normal...

    Thanks so much for the tips! Is it correct for me to carry a short whip whilst I am leading?

    Tips for in hand show?

    Thanks both, that’s very helpful! It’s just a local riding club show so don’t think I’ll look too out of place if I’m not 100% correct with the kit. What am I best to wear? I have a tweed jacket, shirt and tie? Would some short brown boots be better than my long riding boots, and what about my...

    Tips for in hand show?

    I’m planning on taking my young horse to a local show to have a look round and do an in hand class, to start getting him used to outings. He’s 7 but very low mileage, hadn’t done anything before I got him last year. He’s approx 16hh, standardbred cross, Brown with white socks and minimal white...

    Horse is “off” but not lame (confused)

    If it is arthritis, it may not be as bad as you think! He’s a good age and it may mean he needs to slow down a little, but often they are better kept in work. He may never move as freely as he once did but as long as he’s comfortable it shouldn’t matter. Definitely worth getting vet out to check...

    How many bales of hay per day for 2 horses?

    Thanks! The 15hh definitely needed to lose weight coming into winter, he’s looking a bit better now. The 16hh I don’t want to lose any more. I am monitoring him, he looks well but will have a bucket feed if necessary. May start on 1 bale out at night and see what’s left the next morning!

    How many bales of hay per day for 2 horses?

    I actually found it didn’t! Although I can only get large wrapped hay for £35 which really isn’t that large! Last me 10 days max. The small bale I’m getting is £3 so if I use 1 per day it would actually be cheaper, either way I don’t think there will be much in it.

    How many bales of hay per day for 2 horses?

    They are only in light work through winter. And they will eat most things they’re pretty greedy!! Neither require extra energy, they have no hard feed, it’s purely to fill them and keep them happy ☺️

    How many bales of hay per day for 2 horses?

    Both out 24/7 on little grazing. One 15hh one 16hh. Both good doers. How many of the small £3/£4 bales of hay per day? Just a pondering 😁

    Winter turnout pen - ideas?

    Yes I did wonder if that would be the case which is why I haven’t bothered with them up to now, however have seen a couple of people use them with success recently which made me reconsider ..

    Winter turnout pen - ideas?

    Hi all Currently have 2 horses living out on a 1 acre paddock for the winter. I have a smaller pen area around their shelter where I was putting them at night to make poo picking more manageable however this became too muddy. So I’ve had to shut them away from their shelter while it’s wet...
