    Home Alone

    Thanks guys to help put my mind slightly more at ease. She does have a dog flap too so she can go out into the garden if she needs a wee. I'm probably a bit of a worrier ~ just love her to bits and want what's best for her (like everyone on this forum I guess)

    Home Alone

    I've got a 3 yo parsons bitch and love her to bits. Every morning I drop her at Mum's on the way to work so she's not home alone during the day, and pick her up on my way home. Very sadly, Mum is now very ill and at some point soon, will no longer be able to look after Mia. I am obviously...

    Help me please!

    I was on the Premier Equine site earlier and they have some fab deals at the moment (heavy weight with detachable neck). Never had one but friends have and are impressed.

    Thanks for that. She gets turned out for around 9 hours per day at the moment, but longer in the spring/summer.

    Gumpy Old Horse Syndrome

    IMHO I think the behavourial changes are too radical just to be down to old age. Sorry, but I would think something else is the reason and would get him scanned.

    Recommend me some boots!

    Loads of manufacturers are making ' Dubarry style' boots but much cheaper. Dublin River boots look really nice and they're 100 quid instead.

    Advice needed (Very Long - sorry!)

    I think I would have to just turn up to be honest. Be polite (not that she deserves it) and at least try to see him, so you can see what state he's in. I don't think you have a choice if she refuses to take any of your calls. Take a friend for moral support ~ somebody very calm.... Good Luck...

    Locking stifle

    Thanks for your reply. She has dropped weight (like yours, she's fully clipped but is currently wearing 2 heavy weight polys with neck tonight) but is actually better for it as she was a bit porky before (very good doer) I am happy with her weight.... just wondered if the temperature could also...

    Advice needed (Very Long - sorry!)

    Is there no way you can 'drop in' and say you were passing by ?? Sorry, don't know the situation...... guess it's not really about the £150 but more about the welfare of the horse now. Could you call her and say you've heard he's for sale ? Can you buy him back and deduct the cost of the...

    Advice needed (Very Long - sorry!)

    Has she actually paid you for the foal ? If she hasn't paid you I would take the foal back (after making sure he doens't have strangles). People like that don't deserve animals. At the very least, you can report her anonymously to the RSPCA ??? What a sad situation. Hope it gets resolved.

    What make lorry do you drive?

    Marlborough Hunter on a Vauxhall Movano chassis ~ absolutely love it ! However, if you have a large horse, it only carries one !! (unless you upgrade to 3.9 t which is easy enough). Drives like a car and really easy to go out by yourself.

    Locking stifle

    My mare suffers from locking stifle but literally a few times a year and until today has not had it for about a year. My vet said it's nothing to worry about and the more work she does, the better she will be (which has certainly been the case). I think therefore that due to the weather she's...

    Getting a mare and always had geldings. what do I need to know??

    I never had a mare before until my current horse !! I can't say she is any different particularly to the geldings I have owned. I am lucky in that you can't even tell when she's in season. She is not mareish at all. I love her to bits !

    Best quiet clipper/trimmer

    I use the Moser Avalons ~ clip well, very quiet (battery pack). My mare wouldn't let the Mustangs near her so I sold them. They clip brilliantly but sound like aircraft taking off !
