    How to deal with daughter who has lost confidence?

    Is it because you have changed livery yards? Can I ask why didn't you stay at your last yard? Everything is a big change for such a young child. They get confident at one yard and used to things. This is a new pony, New yard and lots of loud noises. Or is she just afraid of the pony?

    has anyone got a naturally moody mare?

    No matter what anyone says on here I have always found mare's moody and mareish. Don't bother all you mare owners denying it:D That is why I only have geldings;) Like most men you can sort them:D:D

    Am I mean? Is there any thing else i could do?

    OP I think your OH needs to understand that when his friends children are there he needs to be there. Horsey or not he can lead the pony round and help them muck out and poo pick. He will then understand and explain to his friends that it is not working:D:D

    Can you blowtorch ragwort?

    Would have to say if you don't pull out the root and burn the lot it will come back. The flowers that drop seeds will run riot. Unless you have a spray licence to get to the root with the chemical (that's why you need the licence to get the chemical). If you have a lot get specialist in to...

    Stag Hunting

    Janet because I don't understand the local culture that's why I asked in the first place. You still have not answered who owns the deer? Anyone? Or are they wild and the hunt's people seem to think they have the right to chase them all over the moor? So anyone can just drive up with a...

    Ruth the hound box I saw was in Nottingham and I know the Master from years back, I don't live in Notts anymore otherwise I would have asked him. I wonder if it's the same hunt?:)

    How would they stop the other hounds anyway? This hunt had two large horse boxes full of hounds that all went out. They wouldn't stand a chance of stopping the pack:mad:

    But this was his choice at least he didn't shot?:confused: I'm sure fencing could be errected and drawn in by food especially if done around winter?:confused:

    Stag Hunting

    OMG!! What did you say to them? The gentleman that explained what was happening did say his wife was hunting but he also was from more north and didn't really agree with it that's why he was just car tagging:eek: So didn't have to be that involved. I didn't tell him I didn't agree with it I...

    So who owns the deer? I'm sure a nice ride could be organized without the dogs and hunt?

    Stag Hunting

    JanetGeorge - thank you for this better explaination. I can see where your coming from but if they are chasing the stag/deer I'm sure they could corner them and even use a dart to stop them running the shoot at close range without all the (fun) of the hunt? Could the people who like to hunt...

    Stag Hunting

    This is why I've come off the fence especially on Stag hunting. But as I didn't know much about it and this chap with the hunt was quite willing to explain. I wasn't sure if the ban was also with Stag hunting (as I didn't realise it happened). I'm not a tree hugger or bunny hugger just have a...

    Stag Hunting

    But we are passionate people so will speak out when we see cruelty and injustices (except when it's us)?? Very sporting. I will leave it here I've always sat on the fence before re fox hunting as I realize the need to control for farmers etc, But now I'm beginning to be against it...

    Stag Hunting

    I'm not saying they don't. What I'm saying is to run an animal till it's frightened and tired and then shoot it???? For fun??? I've noticed how quite everyone else is. I just didn't know this happened (thick maybe) but when people talk of stag hunting I thought they meant with guns to cull...

    Stag Hunting

    Until the other day when we were driving over Exmoor and the hunt was just gathering to go Stag Hunting with dogs. Must admit I was quite shocked when I had it explained by a man trying to Tag our car (get money off us to help the people taking part follow their sport:confused:) :o We did not...
