The usual techniques of turning circles and/or asking to backup thus far have not worked
Doesnt matter if horse is handled in a head collar or dually, the same planty thing will happen
Any other bright ideas for unlocking a planty horse?
I know there been loads of discussion on this in the past but did we ever resolve the issue of whether or not these products contain ….
1. Nothing nefarious
2. Enough omeprazole to be therapeutic
3. In a form that will make it through to the stomach to work
….sounds like tummy ache of some description right?
Vet et al think ulcers unlikely at this stage but possibly hind gut acidosis or gut flora imbalance….
Oily herbs in progress
Equibiome general supplement on order
Coopers on order
What else can I do?
Does it exist anywhere or is anybody thinking of providing it?
As in decentish grass, reasonably well draining land, herd turnout, post and rail or mains electric fencing, daily checks/feeds and hay given when necessary?
I know a few places but all full at present
Looking for a foam or felt type panel jump saddle, very forward cut with big, big (!!!) or Velcro knee rolls
Budget is not massive, think Benidorm all inclusive rather than World Cruise type numbers
Horse doesn't mind Clair so was looking at the Bates but the Caprilli jump isn't forward cut...
I'm thinking of the Prestige/CWD/Amerigo/Equipe/Devoucoux style saddles
For years I've dismissed these an an overpriced gimmick designed to appeal to riders but ignores the comfort of the horse
So imagine my astonishment to find one of my horses much prefers this style to the traditional...
Tentatively looking about for a new horse to add to my collection ...
I've googled all the main charities and rehoming places but there doesn't seem to be many about at the moment, maybe its the time of year?
Any ideas on better places to look?
Videos I've had so far indicate a lot of lame...
I've seen some girls at competitions wearing what look like very dark beige breeches...they look very smart
Does anyone know what make they are? I can only seem to find the cream/vanilla shade of beige
As title really, just wondered if there were any particular recommendations for stallion Livery in Warks/Staffs/south Derby sort of area...maybe a stud that takes liveries? Crucially staff must be calm and experienced in handling stallions
As title really, horse cannot keep shoes on and each time he loses one a chunk of hoof comes away too so that now we cannot shoe him at all and there is precious little left so we are trying shoeless....not by choice but necessity
Horse is crippled but we have to persevere for now
Seeking opinions really
I have a very green 11hh pony that would benefit from some schooling but no kids of my own and no kids experienced enough on yard
I tape measured her yesterday at 230kg, so if we apply the 20% rule that means 46kg is her working max
I'm starting to think the 20%...
Was hoping for a lesson from those who might know how things used to be done. There was an episode of All Creatures Great and Small in earlier tonight set in 1951 where a horse was put down by vet with a shot
But the huntsman turned up on horseback beforehand with the hounds and blew the...
Just wondered if ROG or anybody else had any views on the merits of swb v LWB for towing
My car will prob need changing at some point in the new year and I've been told that swb is easier for towing, especially if nervous like me
However I wondered if they had the same fuel consumption and...
As above really just throwing this out there to see what new treatments there might be for arthritis of hind fetlocks
Also any ideas of current cost for bone scan? I've been quoted £1400 by three counties, just wondered if anywhere was cheaper
As title really...there's h&h obviously but it'll look a bit out of place amongst the luxury hgv's....
I've tried eBay and preloved with no serious interest
I'm not keen on horsequest as a buyer, the scrolling format is tedious....
Maybe it's just the time of year but it...
Following on from the thread about overpriced horses....I felt a whinge coming on about overpriced lorries....
Been looking for a lorry for what seems like forever but I genuinely think a lot of sellers are deluded about what their 25-30 year old rot box is worth....
So I've got the vet booked for Wednesday but in the meantime I am doing a lot of fretting....
One of my lot simply refuses to be turned out and will go into a blind panic if we try to do this, she will stand at the gate pacing, go through electric fencing and will size a gate up to come over...
Wondered what folks suggestions were for a trailer taller and wider than an Ifor 510/511, ideally not backward facing?
was wondering about the Richardons treble but as they've now gone out of business I thought parts might be harder to get
Or should I give up and look at a lorry instead?
Is rog about?
Wondered what cars are recommended to pull a full 3500 trailer, my Pajero is just not heavy enough so need something beefier. Was thinking landcruiser amazon, but would the Colorado do it?
