Yeah, I like a Bodmin pony that's at my current yard and was going to buy him but he's quite wild still - He would just be a pet. Mind you, I guess if he wasn't at my yard he would have been culled with all the others so better a pet in loads of grass huh!
Does the poll work now?
Just wondering how many of us keep their horse on their own really as I am considering moving to land where my boy would be on his own?
Not sure how to use the poll option but will give it a go! I have a great load of land to go to and my horse age 14 I think would be ok but I worry about...
I have NO idea of the etiquette behind colours when attending shows etc and wondered what colour jacket I should wear.

I second the rake! Joe has a hideously massive, large, stonking, afro, mad and insane tail but with the rake I get to tidy and shape it really well.
I rake it from the side first to thin it down and then start raking half way down at the back to thin it out there, seems to work well for me
ah right, yeah maybe I should use the bucket of feed to get closer, he stays with me if I give him food - I gave him a bucket of feed yesterday on the floor and he didn't know what to make of it, eagerly kicked it about the place and then realised it spilled food everywhere.
