    Electric fence giggle

    My old boy is in a small dry patch behind an electric fence due to an abscess. He is a bugger with them, pulls out the posts from the top. I forgot I turned it off when I went to check him. Needed to get him out to change poultice and turned it back on in error. Cue scream, swearing and crackle...

    Totally fair game. Mine does it too. 😠

    If it is true, then what a lack of respect that dead horse has been shown. One would hope such a high profile trainer should show more than that. I'm not sure if I was an owner I'd want my horse in training with such a trainer. Another death this weekend. With Cheltenham and Aintree looming...

    Pictures Is my mare in foal? No one knows...

    My friend has an old mare who last year, at 27, produced a colt foal last year. I have suspicions that she is in foal again. 🙁

    End of the road, what to do?

    Make the call. Is there any possibility of a home visit from your vets? Sorry you are facing the difficult decision but as loving owners it's the kindest one. (HUGS)

    Worst thing the cat's done.

    I can't bear rodents in the house, I'm hopeless. Husband or eldest has to catch the live ones. I'm still not over this pic!

    Worst thing the cat's done.

    Mine would have been evicted promptly for that! Playing with their kill infront of me is a no-no in the house.

    Midges and marmite!

    2 of my mares have brewers yeast in their feed. It's not been refused yet. 🙂

    There's quite a bit of movement there! 😊

    Pictures Is my mare in foal? No one knows...

    Hmmm, sounds a possibility she may have caught. Her vulva does look lengthened too. If you watch her sides you could see movement if she is in foal.

    Top left, 9th May, top right 16th, bottom left 23rd and bottom right 24th, just under 2hrs from birth!

    Pictures Is my mare in foal? No one knows...

    What's the time difference between pics on left and right? Keep an eye on the head of her tail. Slackening off here indicates muscles relaxing in preparation for birth. Vulva will redden up too close to birth. I'll have a look at my phone for "boob pics" of my mare last year. Bagging up can...

    In hand showing - hard hat or not?

    Hard hat definitely for a youngster.

    Anyone seen swelling like this?

    Please don't feel guilty. The dedication, commitment and love that you have all shown for him has been evident. Sleep peacefully Vinnie.

    Weekends Racing - Tiger Roll

    Didn't have the best preparatory run for the National did he? At the top end of the weights wouldn't be the easiest race. Agree AA not a good weekend for them.

    Showing Small Adults On Ponies

    I only have NF's in my collection. I'm 5'6 and weight does vary more than I'd like it to but around the 10.5 mark. I've show a 13hh, 14.1 and a full up 14.2. We have a 13.3 NF that my son has recently backed. I'm too heavy at the moment to do it-lockdown blubber. 😕

    The kindest decision to set them free is the hardest. So sorry.

    The Most Handy Command..

    My son's pony also knows " Oi, don't you bloody dare" when trying to push my mare away from her bucket.

    Loading - when it doesn't go to plan

    One of my sisters ponies was a tricky loader. Refused to load to come home one day. After many hours it was getting dark. Managed to secure the use of a field overnight. Left said pony there. Only had the use of transport the previous day so had to ride the bloody thing home. Fortunately not...

    Loading - when it doesn't go to plan

    I quite honestly don't blame them. Why would they go up a (sometimes steep) ramp into a moving box?! We are asking the horse to trust us completely that it is safe. It may sound mad but I open up the trailer fully and demonstrate that it is not evil. If I have a slave about (aka son), I get...

    Why is this happening?!!

    I was looking for a older schoolmaster type to regain my confidence with. Ended up with a 13.1 yearling NF!

    Hydrating horse following colic

    Fingers crossed now, she's got plenty of access.

    Hydrating horse following colic

    Maybe worth mentionning to your vet. What water source did she have at the horsepital? Yes, thanks, my mare is fine. She reacts to any slight food change, I've learnt to spot the signs and deal with it appropriately.

    Hydrating horse following colic

    It is easy to blame yourself for things-don't! Life is hard enough at the moment without torturing yourself. (We switched hay supply and without thinking forgot to mix it in, cue my mare having an episode the other week😯) I put another trug of water in my old boy's field shelter as the ground...
