    I am failing at google again. :( I'm trying to find a replacement cover for the spare wheel on an Ifor Williams HB505R. Plain rather than branded is fine. The tyre is marked 165 80 R13.

    Anton - the pretty chestnut pony on DD

    I still can't have him... but I hope that someone can. He's now reduced to £250 as he's gone through an electric fence. https://www.dragondriving.co.uk/horseforsale-174607.html I hope he gets a good home.

    Can anyone remember this - possibly teamchasing - video?

    I'm trying to find a video that was posted on here once. Sadly my searching attempts haven't got anywhere. It was an older video but in it part of the race involved going into the sea and then back to land. One of the teams had arab horses. If anyone can remember what it was called or can find...

    Hemlock water dropwort

    This is one of the poisonous plants that I regularly have to check the paddocks for, especially down by the stream as it likes wet ground best. Down the road from us they have some yurts that they rent out to holiday makers. Well one of the holiday makers has just come out of hospital having...

    Question RE single turnout yards. Owners with more than one horse.

    Having read some of the yard threads recently I have begun to wonder how it works on yards with single turnout for owners with more than one horse who wants them to be turned out together? Is that allowed? If so do they make the single paddocks you are assigned into a bigger paddock or do they...

    Rugging up older horses - keeping OAP's warm

    That's 'old age ponies' of course. ;) I have increasing found that my chestnut mare needs to be kept warm far more than she did even a couple of years ago. I thought that I had adjusted sufficiently by making sure that she has 100g more compared to what she has previously needed. However this...

    Headcollars - has Cottage Craft stopped making the adjustable, synthetic ones?

    This design with the three buckles. I can't find a cob or full size one anywhere. Maybe my searching skills are letting me down but I can only find foal size new.

    Video Driving Horse attacked by dog in the US

    I saw this on COTH and thought I would post here. The lady in red is the horse owner and she dismounted from the carriage to help her horse. Such a nightmare. I wish both her and the horse the best during their recoveries as they were both injured.

    Question for those who were horse owners in the 1970's

    When did cross surcingles come in? Were rugs in the 70's (I'm guessing jute stable rugs, New Zealand canvas turnouts and wool day rugs) done up with leather straps at the chest, leg straps/fillet string and single surcingles? Was the spider system around then? Thanks. :)

    Older horses - teeth and diastemas

    So my chestnut mare has developed diastemas and although the Vet (also a qualified Equine Dentist) is happy with how things are currently, it was mentioned that things could deteriorate. I was told that this could be then sorted by having some teeth removed under standing sedation at the Vet...

    Bedding and rubber floors

    I've been thinking about this as it was brought up in some youtube comments. When you have a rubber floor in a stable so loose mats, poured rubber flooring or sealed mats, how much bedding do you use? Horses in overnight.

    What piece of horsey advice really helped you?

    For me it was an instructor explaining about 'setting your horse up for success'. A simple statement that really made me think about what I was doing.

    Concrete additive

    I'm hoping to get the hay feeder area hardcored and concreted. I have however hit a snag... we can't get a ready mix lorry up to that area. So I'm trying to find out about additives to make the concrete tougher/urine resistant that we could add to concrete as it is mixed in a small concrete...

    Expectations of 'bonding' with your horse detrimental to horse ownership?

    Just some ponderings I had the other day and I wondered if anyone else had any thoughts. :) When I was around seven years old I saw 'The Black Stallion' for the first time and marvelled at the scene where Alec is rescued from the island but the Black is left behind... only for the Black to...

    Ex-feral/farm cats

    I thought I'd share a photo of our two ex-ferals. They have tamed up a huge amount and have had a little visit to the vet for neutering. :) Great, all done and dusted... only another one has turned up in the last few days! I'd love to see any photos you have of your adopted feral or farm cats. :D

    CM is in a state RE her new neighbours - any advice?

    So a couple of days ago some horses moved into a neighbouring paddock (not sharing a fence, it borders paddocks which my horses aren't in at the moment - so two fences between each group of horses). It seemed as if it was all going to be fine only yesterday CM came into season and is now...

    Please add your photos. :) My lot had an exciting day today. The paddock next door has only had sheep in it for years, but today two horses were turned out in it!

    Clap for the NHS and animals

    I don't know if anyone else is having issues with this? Essentially people have stopped clapping - which wasn't an issue - and have moved onto doing much noisier things.
