    Part Full/DIY or grass livery hackable distance to Tillyoch

    Think you will be hard pushed to find somewhere in vicinity you want that offers individual turn out. Yard I am on has spaces but it is DIY and you get a stable and up to you if use it or not. Or if you mean a spare stable that you can access to as and when but not pay for it he doesn't do that...

    magnetic hock boots, reviews

    [I bought the premier equine ones in their 40% off for daughter's mare with bone spavin. We put them on for hour before riding and does appear to help her a good bit. Even her instructor says that noticed she wasn't as stiff coming into lessons. So glad we got them. But will admit unsure if...

    grass livery, what should you expect for your money?

    It would depend on what was agreed when you moved on .We are on diy(with a stable) and whilst yard owner would never ignore a horse in trouble and does glance over them,it is not his role but we all know that. Would expect fencing to be sound etc.If full grass livery would expect horse to be...

    Magnetic hock boots - worth it?

    According to our dogs vet some can. Dogs apparently do respond to placebos.He said it in response to a jokey comment I made re our dog. I think it was to do with injections but can't swear to that. I have no reason to doubt him tho can't understand how it would work! I have used magnetic boots...

    Feeling desperate - help re livery in Aberdeen

    The yard I livery on seems to tick your boxes. He has an 'injury paddock' set aside . He does not have a starvation paddock tho it is only for injuries. It has an indoor/outdoor, 40 liveries but herds are no more than 8/10 most are less. Mares and geldings are usually seperate unless agreement...

    Arena Bookings - Is this reasonable?

    Is instructor that fixed that they can't change?I totally get where you are coming from BUT sometimes thats the way things go on yards and we have to suck it up. We have a similiar system on our yard that you can book it for lessons only but no lessons during core time(4-7pm) and this usually...

    Riding with carpol tunnels

    Totally agree with this. The recovery time far outways the problems of the carpal tunnel. Take the time and don't try and rush to do things too fast or you could impede the healing. I had only one hand done and tbh was so grateful to stop the interupted nights,no feeling,dropping things etc...

    Experience of claiming on BHS Gold member 3rd party liability?

    Public Liability insurance doesn't mean automatic payout. My horse literally stood on a friends head and body she was critical for ages in hospital/rehab for a year so went thru the whole solicitor thing. PL covers you for being sued and person had to prove negligence. Petplan also said I had...

    Losing shoes?

    I actually had no intention of puting shoes on if I could avoid it when I got him as a yearling(his feet were a right mess). Wasn't until we started the breaking process that he kept showing up with a slight lameness then x rays and all that led to the heartbars He isn't even sound in a...

He has heartbars on front feet and his toes are cut short as trips a lot if slightly long none behind .His pedal bone is 'flatter' than it should be.He is sound as long as he has shoes on.

    Aberdeen people

    I think Mithras is right.Its the end of an era with Loanhead and Hayfield closing If you look at their plans Countesswells etc are all earmarked for housing etc and once the bypass is built there will be no stopping them as they can access ground they couldn't before.Sadly I think yards will...

    TBH the hackings pretty poor imo. You have direct access to railway line but if its nice everyone and their dog(literally lol) are out. And since they tarmaced it you have the racers on their bikes which annoy EVERYONE as they stop for nothing. Also now (a very recent addition) have a council...

    I'm at new yard at Milltimber.Don't think old yard is closing as he has just made an indoor school(as in weeks old) and doubt he would have paid the thousands he did for the surface if he was closing. I know he is losing grazing to road and some to housing so is limiting the amount of liveries...
