    Selling Sedalin???

    I bought a tube of Sedalin to be able to clip my youngster as he has a bit of a skin issue and is a bit scabby. I got some Sedalin from my vet but then read the clinical notes before using it which advises not to use Sedalin on stallions. He is a 2 and half yr old colt as he just hasn't been...

    Is he going to be mature enough to show?

    Hello I am thinking of possibly taking little Foaly to Kent County this July. While I know it is a few months off yet I am already concerned if Foaly is mature enough or not and don’t want to waste our time or get excited for nothing. At almost 2 he is still a little tiddler due to his poor...

    Freezemark or Mircochip?

    Going on from the "where to freezemark" thread I have been wondering for quite a while now if it is worth freezemarking too? My 2 ponies were freezemarked 19 years ago and then microchipped when I had my passports done (it made it cheaper even with the cost of microchipping). But then my TBs and...

    Little Foaly Update

    Been a bit quiet on the Foaly News. He is doing a lot better with the hind legs and has put a bit more weight on, although it is beginning to slow down a little bit now. The vet was quite happy when they saw him the last time. Have put a few more images on his facebook page.

A few days after arriving at the yard I wormed him with the 5 day Panacur Guard as unsure of his worming history. I have since found out that there is something in it that can kill...
