    Full livery or at home?

    Great idea to see if you could tack out some additional - keeping them close to the house in summer and on tack in winter. Another option which i used to do was livery 6 months and home 6 months. So i'd get the use of facilities during the good months and then home to lay off during winter.

    Blue at Fat Camp

    I feel for him to be honest. I just ate an orange twirl without even realising Id done it and when i went to the packet it was empty. Imagine that. Id jump out of my field too if that happened to me. Poor dab :p

    Do you think a dog could be happy if...

    Yes. This is a bit of a crazy question to me! My two terriers rarely get lead walked off the farm and quite frankly i wholeheartedly believe they get better exercise and fulfilment from their time out in the fields than they would on a lead walk. Its so enriching - sniffs, nibbles (poo its...

    I give up...

    I live below a welsh stud and not one of those cobs from a-d ever wear a rug and every single year they cope and they arent loved personal pets. Your horse will be fine unrugged, if needs be.

    The Great Livery Yard Debate

    I dont know your work situation obviously but it looks like we're staring down the nose of another lockdown, so you could take that one of two ways - stick with cheaper and better the devil you know option OR if you'll be at home more why not enjoy the far better sounding yard 2, which will...

    Eventing venues in wales?

    Shame really isnt it? The perfect land for horse sports and there is a huge lack of high end facilities.

    WWYD -Livery Issues

    Ah well done Dorsetladette, you handled this really well. We're all pleased for you. Sounds like the pony will already be treasured more by the new owner than the old. What any horse deserves.

    Fields now doggy day care

    Yeah I cant see how dual use is safe, especially where there are some cases of dogs getting sick after eating recently wormed horses poo. I'd choose dogs over horses though. Less destructive.

    Sensible heads please ..... Horse buying pre winter!

    I mean I'm all for the companion idea but my horses were deliberately kept separate (but in sight) of each other and suffer no ill effects. Not that I want to start a debate on that part..!

    What would you do?

    No, I wouldnt be worried. I'd just ask them to text me when he moves so I know where I can pop past and say hello.

    Cross poles info needed please

    Agree with the joining pony club - its well worth it. As for dress code just smart and clean for daughter, it really doesnt need to be fancy or posh! tweed, navy or black jacket, beige/stone/cream jods and a shirt/tie or a showshirt. Jod boots+gaiters or boots. And her BP! :D She'll have a...
