    Hunting boots for a pony

    Wow! I'm so glad that you mentioned that as I will now totally avoid them!! When I did a little search a lot of people said that they didn't boot for hunting. Both of us (pony and myself) are brand new to hunting and starting in August with some hound exercise as a taster. So any tips that...

    Hunting boots for a pony

    I was looking at the P. Equine air cooled boots but they don't go down to his sizw which is very unfortunate. Their pony sixes are for 14hh + which I think will just be too big for him. :( Will look at Clarendon. Thank you. Thank you. They look rather posh and a bit like the P. Equine boots...

    Hunting boots for a pony

    I'm looking at taking my NF pony hunting at the beginning of next season as I want to work on his fitness and not rush him as he is an older pony. But wondering what boots I should get him to help protect his legs. He is 13.2 and takes a pony size boot. I saw some really nice eventing air...

    Selling Sedalin???

    Hi guys. Thank you for all your advice. In the end I left it a few days and rang back to say that the drug was prescribed and I can't use it. Luckily they did take the drug back and re-credited my account. I bought some medicated shampoo in the end and his skin has cleared up without the need...

    Selling Sedalin???

    I've been with these vets for the whole time I've had my youngster and have been great so don't want to annoy them too much. I did ask on the phone about it after I read the clinical notes and was advised that they can't take the drug back as they can't sell it as even though I haven't opened...

    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...

    feeding an underweight 4 1/2 dartmoor foal

    Firstly good luck with your little foal! I took on a neglected 11 month old foal a year and a half ago now and he was also in a terrible condition. Infested with lice, so underweight, unhandled, nervous and had no idea of hard feed. I started him off on a very bland high fibre diet and then...

    Straw Pellets trial (pic heavy)

    Which brand of wood pellet are you using now Thai? With 5 horses I am always looking to save a bit of money or a bit of time! Beforehand I have always soaked all of the bedding but some other people on this thread (unless I have the wrong end of the stick) have said that they don't soak them at...

    A Foaly Update! :D

    Thank you! Am proud of the boy :) Very much looking forward to backing him! Itching to get started now! Next thing we need to do is clip him. His skin has turned very scabby and not too sure why :( Wonder if it is where he is a massive pain in the butt to bath that I haven't washed him down...

    Straw Pellets trial (pic heavy)

    How many of you do actually wet the wood pellets when 1st laying the bed? I'm quite new really to LWP and can't find a good or easy way to do it. Tried to pour the water in the bag but most escapes out the bottom and then it's hard to get the rest out the bag. Should I water it down in a...

    A Foaly Update! :D

    Thank you so much! Sorry for my late reply but it's not too often I ever really come on here. Not much has happened since in Foaly world. He looks and feels taller when I stand next to him but then I measure him and he comes out the same height! Was shocked when I weigh taped him for his wormer...

    Straw Pellets trial (pic heavy)

    I'm going to be using LWP again this winter as they are the cheapest bedding I can find really that my yard will accept. I am massively OCD about my bedding being clean but just can't afford to chuck out so much bedding every day or even if I could, I wouldn't have the time to do it! Can only...

    A Foaly Update! :D

    Thank you Gadetra. Sorry that I left you curious about Foaly and his progress. I don't very often come onto Horse and Hound but think I should try to make more effort to do it! Thank you so much for your kind comments :) I do love his colour and learnt to live with it as I think he will grey out...

    A Foaly Update! :D

    Thank you Mellissa! And Foaly will be glad to have yet another follower and friend on his FB. :) He already rubs it in that he has more friends on FB than i do! ha ha Yes I know his breeding on both sides :) He is an ISH by Cruisings Ambassador (by Cruising out of Bude) and his mum was a full...

    A Foaly Update! :D

    Thank you Millhouse! :) Temperament is getting there too, had a small hiccup come spring and the testicles dropped. Haven't been able to get him gelded due to the weather and him hiding them. But he's much more settled now.

    A Foaly Update! :D

    Thank you Maesfen! :) I fear he will slowly turn grey and lose his unique colour and he still has his white spots! It's really nice to hear positive comments :) There have been times that I have been worried at how slow his progress has been but then I just have to remember that I can't just...

    A Foaly Update! :D

    Around this time last year I remember updating some of you about my newly rescued foal from Ireland by the name of Axel Foaly. A few of you have added him as a friend on Facebook and he's been keeping you all entertained with his exploits! Someone should have reminded me how much hard work a...

    Is he going to be mature enough to show?

    Well I'm so very glad I asked!! Thank you everyone for all your replies. Thank you so much to everyone and your comments. Much appreciated and taken in. I can quite clearly see that my little guy is far far far far behind everyone else! Compared he looks like he is still in pampers! Due to...

    Is he going to be mature enough to show?

    Thanks for your reply. I was thinking of entering him into a 2yo potential sports horse class as he's an ISH. Not having shown a youngster before or done much showing at all really I wanna have a bit of a look around to see if it's right or not. I would like to get him out and about to...

    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...

    To rug or not a 2year old.

    I have a 19 month old colt that has rugs on and have the heavier rugs clean and ready to go if and when the winter really kicks in. He was a rescue and isn't up to weight yet so I obviously want him warm so that he can use his feed to put on the extra condition and hopefully grow a tad...

    Peculiar vet advice

    My yearling has been diagnosed with upward fixation of the patella. It was due to his poor condition as he was a rescue. I was advised to obviously get the weight on him and then lead him in hand and build it up over time and then start to take him up hills. When he was ok with that to start...

    So happy I could cry!!

    Ahhhhh yes! I forgot about Axl Rose! Thank you :) I'm not sure what colour the boy will turn out to be! He was going very grey with the summer coat but now that he has the start of a winter coat is very bay with only the odd fleck of grey on his body but he has more white on his face. But...
