    Milk Indicators?

    Who uses these and where did you buy them from? Non of my broodmares set off the foaling alarms (they are all cool customers) so it ends up me checking them every hour and a half on the cameras. Obviously, this is still something that will be done but I was wondering whether these milk...

    Weymouth for a horse with a very fleshy mouth

    I was wondering whether anyone had any suggestions for a weymouth I could try on my mare that has a very fleshy mouth. She currently has the NS Verbibend and the NS Warmblood Weymouth, but I am just a bit concerned that the weymouth does seem to sit on the bars of her mouth. What I am...

    Sedalin for stallions?

    I was just wondering if anyone used Sedalin or something similar for their stallions? My boy needs clipping and he is so ticklish that he is a complete fidget so I thought it would be better if we just took the edge off him when we clipped him to avoid me chopping bits off that should not be...

    I have been going to a trainer and staying there for 2-3 days up until all of our building work commenced. Unfortunately, I have not been able to keep them in work due to the amount of time I have spent managing the project and am just about to get cracking again. I really miss my days away...

    3 years old stallion - any more growth?

    I have a lovely 3 years old stallion who should have made around 17hh. He is currently standing at around 15.3hh at the moment but is very immature for his age, in fact he looks more like a 2 year old at the moment. He has always been a late developer, his tickle tackle only dropped this summer...

    It has been a huge labour of love that has caused so much pressure, stress, upset... I don't think I can list all of the emotions that the place has caused the whole family.

    100 day scans?

    I was wondering how many breeders have these done? Every time I have bred a foal I have had these done, but due to not having the facilities this year (we are in the process of building our own place) my four ladies had 60 day scans at stud and have since had no further scans. Ideally I...

    One of my horses has always done this since he was backed last year. He does it once he has relaxed and is settled in his work. I have never had a horse that grinds its teeth before so not really sure of what to do. He does not grind his teeth when he is tense etc. it is more when he has...

    My stallion was quite settled last year being turned out at night next to two colts (2 yrs) where he could groom over the fence. This year he is now 4 years old and has been away collecting at stud. He has just come home and I have turned him out in his own field with slightly higher fencing...

    Round pen advice

    I was wondering whether anyone had any advice. I have a round pen that I use for turnout. It was put in its current position in February.

    Team JetSet is back... with a new addition!

    Six weeks ago today my daughter decided to come into the world three weeks early. Since then, I have been adjusting to being a new mum, finding a way of doing the yard with her with me and finally getting back into the saddle! I sat on my 17 year old lady when Tabitha was just 3 weeks old...

    Saddle fitters in North West

    I had a fabulous saddle fitter in Katie Topping, but unfortunately she is now on the other side of the world! I have been lucky as I trusted her 100% with my various saddles and horses and then I have not been training with the horses as much due to being pregnant so their saddles have not...

    After many years of waiting... the horses are now at home!

    Things have progressed very slowly due to certain issues with the property before we bought it, but finally yesterday evening I could sit drinking an ice cold beer watching my horses munch their hay from my parent's window! It took us from 10.20am until 7.45pm to move four horses, four lots...
