    Boy bunny neutering

    Pippin is booked in for his op soon (he's 6 months old now) I've got a few questions - if anyone can help please? He has a 2 storey hutch - is this ok or should he be on one level? (there is a 3 inch drop from the hutch into the run too). I've been asked to take a packed lunch for him - he...

    Rabbits and Stasis

    I took Pippin for his vaccinations last night - we went to a different practice as the previous one wasn't very disabled friendly. I asked the vet how much metaclopromide he should have in the event of stasis, I was quite surprised when he said if they get stasis just to bring them inside and...

    Feeding younger rabbits

    At what age can a young rabbit be given fresh greens? I've also read conflicting advice on how much hard feed to give - some say ad lib pellets until 6 months? He has plenty of hay and is eating lots of that. (I've only ever had older rabbits before)

    Carrier for Rabbit Recommendations

    I'd like to get Paddington a new carrier - the one i've got at the moment (Catit) is too heavy. I'd ideally prefer a fabric one (and even better a back pack style) - but have concerns about the mesh being secure? He's generally good in the carrier - its just for the occasional vet trips.

    Anyone do horse agility?

    I was looking at the website and thought the on line competitions looked like fun, but wondered how easy it was to make the equipment? I've got access to poles, already got cones, and have ordered a tarpaulin, but things like the arch etc looked rather more challenging. I've found some old...

    Dealing with native bushy mane and tails

    I've recently got a fell pony, and he's got a lovely (and very think) mane and tail. What is best to put on it to keep it tangle free? (and preferably unscented - as he doesn't seem to like products with scent). I did try some eqyss but could do with something a bit more heavy duty - plus he...
