    Tokyo Pentathlon SJ

    I also had an xracer that was fab in warm up but napped badly and reared in ring. He also may have associated the ring with the previous round that went badly if the first warm up was OK. He did seem a sensitive type which made him an unlikely candidate for MP sadly.

    Should I hit the panic button?

    I should know in a month or two if things have worked out for me. If they have then I can offer grazing for both in your area. No facilities though.

    Should I hit the panic button?

    Vet as soon as you see anything. I was told by the time trouble starts its too late to get them. They would rather be either half way out and go home if all OK or carry on to check mum and baby out.

    Should I hit the panic button?

    I know its a shock but I think when its sunk in you will see it as a good thing. I think it will help heal your heart over Gypsum. I have been where you are and I thought it was the end of the world but in reality I loved having him around. Have everything crossed for a smooth foaling...

    Should I hit the panic button?

    Happened to me years ago. I panicked then I coped no bother. Good luck either way. If she is in foal then maybe its meant to be and as others have said wont impact your future plans for her. After the initial shock I just saw it as a foal that was mine with 9 months less pregnancy worry as I...

    Anyone seen swelling like this?

    Last year I was advised against cold hosing in winter for a wound by my vet as the water is too chilled to help and damages newly growing flesh. Mine was an open wound that kept getting irritated. We just wiped stable debris off. ON the movement thing the same horse has a scar and now walks...

    Vets no longer restricted to emergency work only..........
