    I use this, it's brilliant, smells nice, lifts dirt and doesn't weaken rubber mats :)

    Possible growth on Vulva/Vagina?? And behavior change with pics

    My mare has been a bit of a worry just lately, a few weeks ago she suddenly took a dislike to a 4yo gelding that had been in the field 3 months with no problem, she would charge him if he even looked at him and would also try and run out the gate if another was brought in, when we'd get there to...

    Lame or sound? a little vid

    I'd also be tempted to have a physio check her over, physio work will help loosed up any tension that may have been caused by her compensating with her stiffness :)

    What time does your livery yard close?

    Our yard owner lives on site, they don't close but they like you to let them know if you are coming up between 10pm and 4am, more so in winter as they have alarms that go off in the house that are triggered by cars/movement. A friend of mine always nipped up at midnight to skip out and net after...
