    How would you price him?

    My partner and I have just had an offer accepted on our first house. And ng up to the reality that running three horses and a mortgage isn’t going to happen. I’ve managed to reach this point in my life and never sell one, but it’s time to be a grown up. The older two I can run relatively...

    For the former 3/4yr olds that have graduated from that thread! And any new ones 🙌 I’ve been enjoying contributing and reading about everyone else’s young horses and I know there’s been some calls for a new thread to follow them on. Pod is five now and has just levelled off again after a big...

    Puppy with Entropion - what would you do?

    So long story short. I have a Cocker Spaniel. I’ve been toying with adding a second puppy for a little while. An acquaintance has a Cocker Spaniel puppy remaining from a litter, I’ve previously met the bitch and the dog is well spoken of. I’ve enquired to be told the puppy was diagnosed with...

    DIY Solarium

    Whilst there is no way I could afford a "proper" Solarium, it would be incredibly useful to be able to wash my incessantly filthy grey in midst of winter and be able to get him dry! I know that some people on here have homemade solariums made from patio heaters - this is something I'd be...

    Bouncing bay pony goes to Milton Keynes 3DE...

    The car was packed, the bay pony was collected from Uni and we set off down the M1 towards Milton Keynes. The weather forecast was bleak, with thunderstorms forecast and non-stop heavy rain. All I could think was that all my uni friends would be all glammed up for the summer ball and I’d be...

    Your preferences - Horseboxes...?

    Our present set up is an Ifor Williams 505 with no partition (horse won't travel alone, with one) and an old Jeep Grand Cherokee to tow - we've had this set up for the last 11 years and it's seen us through from 12hh ponies to horses. The Jeep is starting to get unreliable, expensive and we're...

    Asbos, clever pony and a little looking forward and back...

    So pony’s most recent acts of Juvenile delinquency in the field (rug breaking, ploughing attempts and downright stupidity) have resulted in me fearing for his safety :redface3: . I never wanted to be that horse owner who feared turning their delinquent out. But alas, he has broken me and in he...

    Please explain BE to me!

    I've always wanted to affiliate with BE and do some *proper* eventing. Never had the horse power in the past. Now I have my 5 year old who I think is about ready, he'll do a good Dressage test, he's jumping nicely around SJ courses at the moment and was getting quite bold last year around...

    Baby bay pony goes to Eland's ODE - many pictures!

    The alarm was set to go off yesterday morning at 5am - too early! Fatal mistake made by me. Hit the off button wanting an extra five minutes. Next thing, my lovely mother burst in declaring we'd overslept. Only by an hour! Oops! :o Which meant 45 minutes was to be had to brush, plait, pack...

    Baby bay pony does an ODE...

    ...and he only went and won it! Much to mum's dismay, when we went shopping yesterday and I was lusting over the Jeffries five-point breastplate (it has blue and yellow elastic to match my XC colours!) she declared that if we won, she'd buy it for So-pony. She's presently trying to talk her way...

    BD Regionals or Area Festivals?

    It's been mine and my youngster's first season doing BD and we've qualified for Regionals and Area Festivals at Prelim. I understand you can't do both, so I've got to decide which one to do - having done neither in the past I've no idea what either are like and which would be more suitable at...

    New Forageplus Balancer?

    I've been looking at having my forage analysed. But because the grass in my fields all varies due to some being re-seeded a few years ago. Upon speaking to the farmer who I get my hay from, he says that his hays from various fields with different sorts of grasses too. I've figured I'd have to...
