    Another Headshaking One!

    Thank you Nic, I have ordered the Hilton Herbs HS liquid as Ive used them before when my old horse suffered, this is going back years and he only did it sporadically on frosty mornings, it helped him enormously so Im giving it a go but I'll try the Equine America one if that doesn't help, Ive...

    Fits /Seizures. DESPERATE for HELP

    Im late to this but just wanted to add my condolences, my beloved boy of a lifetime (in my avatar) developed seizures at 23 when he was still so well, I thought he’d live forever but I called time as it was so distressing for him, you couldnt have saved him and its totally the right decision...

    Another Headshaking One!

    Sorry I know its been done to death but i cant find anything exactly the same as my boy. I’ll keep it brief but Sec D 10 yrs old, perfect health and in the 8 years ive had him he has never been a headshaker. Then the farmer next door planted rapeseed and he’s had a miserable two months. All...

    Feel like just giving up

    I had a vet give my horse a flexion test recently as part of an investigation into something else and he wasn't lame but wasn't 100% on one rein either, maybe just centimetres short but even I could see the difference on the one leg. She said if it were a vetting she'd have passed it because...

    The Cheltenham Festival

    As much as I loved seeing Tiger doing what he loves, Heaven Help Us was the story of the day for me too. Paul Hennessy walking her in after saying "She's my Enable". How fabulous. So sad for Kings Temptation, looked as though he landed awkwardly at a previous fence which I imagine caused...

    Strange "attack"?

    Thank you so much for the replies already! Yes he certainly acts like its a kind of shock and both times it happened while he was on this saddle pad so you could be onto something. My car is a complete nail and I don't have anything fancy like heated seats so it wouldn't be that. I do...

    Strange "attack"?

    Im not expecting anyone to come up with a solution to this but thought Id ask anyway. Our JRT x Corgi rescue did a weird thing in the summer, he’s a very quiet boy but loves coming out in the car to the stables with me because he gets lots of fuss. He sits on the passenger seat, on a saddle pad...

    Blocked tear duct - to leave or not to leave?

    Thanks for all your replies....looks like its a vet jobby then!

    Blocked tear duct - to leave or not to leave?

    I had the vet out yesterday to look at my boy's recurring watery eye, just the one eye and if left (like recently when I hadn't been able to get to the yard for three days because of snow) results in black gunk in the corner of his eye. She checked everything and thankfully nothing untoward was...

    Soft Food Diet?

    Thank you for responding, I suggested that but apparently she's tried it and it still came back up. Very odd.

    Soft Food Diet?

    Hi, posting on behalf of a friend/work colleague who isn't on here. She has a gorgeous 8 year old collie type who is healthy in all respects however she, like a lot of dogs, can be picky with food. She was on the Hills Complete dry food for a while but now won't touch it. She has decided...

    Changing farriers

    Well done OP you can move on now! Honestly its the best thing I ever did, it was almost 12 months ago and my horse's feet now look like the did when I bought him! Hope you get the same outcome x

    Sudden collapse

    Sorry I just realised I hadn't responded to this. I did get him checked out and all his vital signs were perfect. Ive got to take him back for bloods in the next couple of weeks as a matter of course as he's on long term meds for his arthritis but he's been absolutely fine since, been at the...

    Changing farriers

    Sorry only just come back to this.... yes I think your suggestion would work although Hobley's idea of passing the blame to the vet is pretty inspired also! Just don't overthink it too much, send a message and move on. None of us like upsetting people but honestly I don't think your farrier...

    Bridle numbers

    Can I just say thank you Milliepops….I contacted them just to see if there was a means to buy new doodahs and they asked me to email them which I did, they have messaged me to say they've popped some more in the post to me! Now that's service!

    Changing farriers

    Oh I had to do this a year ago and I'd been with my old farrier for about 20 years, with my old horse and then with the new one but he'd got sloppy and complacent and something had to give. I sent a long text (coward) saying there's no easy way of saying this but..... with my horse it was...

    Bridle numbers

    Yes I like that idea, less chance of it becoming detached (which it did yesterday when I had it on the cheekpiece) - done know why I didn't think of that. Thank you

    Ridiculous isn't it! Thanks Milliepops I didn't realise they were on FB, I'll have a look x

    Bridle numbers

    I opened my Equidiscs yesterday to put on my bridle for a competition and two of the little rubber attachments them were broken! Id lent them someone recently so can only assume she hadn't realised when she gave them back :-( I want to replace these but don't want to pay £15 for a new number...

    Sudden collapse

    Haven't been on here for a while but this is an odd one and I wondered if anyone had any thoughts. We rehomed an 8 year old cross breed terrier back in March, he really is a lovely dog, so laid back he's almost horizontal, acts about 80! He just potters about and enjoys a very slow walk in the...

    Enable!

    Just came on to add my four penneth worth and say yes its disappointing but not surprising given the rain they've had, but having never been his greatest fan I loved the way Frankie looked after Enable in the last furlong, some jocks would've been a lot more aggressive with her. If Stradivarius...

    Liam Treadwell

    Can't believe this, so sad, he was far too young. I think he had a bad injury not long ago but looked as though he had pulled himself right back up following that. My heart goes out to this loved ones.

    Royal Ascot

    I'm late to this but have to agree with you all, I really enjoyed Royal Ascot last week, more than usual (I'm NH all day long). It was lovely to just concentrate on the horses and racing and not having to watch Gok et al fawn over people just out for a p*ss up. Cried at Stradivarius, what a...

    Strange lump

    Hi all, long time no see! Ive not posted in ages and am now doing so on behalf of a fellow livery who doesn't yet have a HHO account. I've told her that you're a well informed bunch and I'm sure you can shed some light. She has two horses, TB types, who have lived out for years and do very...

    Cheltenham

    That's similar to what I said on a FB page last night, she is like a pony mad kid still, just love it. What a ride she gave the horse and he was so genuine for her, that leap at the ditch top of the hill! I was in bits at work just hearing it second hand from people who were watching it. Now...
