    Protect Our Pets UK

    Have just stumbled across this website, but sadly any links I attempt do not work. It is a site campaigning for responsible dog ownership and urging reporting of dog on dog attacks in a hope there will be a change in legislation, due to the distress and suffering it causes both owners and pets...

    'Presa' advertised on freeads

    Am I right in thinking these are banned? A couple of months ago there was an American Pit ! Should I report this?

    Free to collector

    If anybody needs any Red Cell or Sarc-ex I have half used containers of both and no longer have a horse. They are still both within use by date and I just cannot bear to sling them if somebody could make use of them. I am about 10 mins from J23 of M5 so do pm me if any use to you. Hope...

    Irish Sport Equine

    I have seen a horse on their website which I am considering. I have never purchased unseen before but there is a fairly comprehensive video which leads me to think she may suit, as does the description. I will of course speak to the dealers before going any further, but would be ever so...

    Just how hard can it be

    To take a few decentish pictures of your horse from various angles to put in your advert? Have been horse hunting since October for a Connie type and am amazed at the amount of adverts with a single photo of the head/standing head on/rugged/at an angle/head over stable door/behind a gate does...

    Turned down by a rescue ...

    because I would take the dog up to the stables and it may get trampled on and would not like walking around a muddy field. I am retired, live on my own in my own house with a secure garden, have a little friendly neutered, injected etc etc terrier, who sleeps on my bed and would love a...

    Used Tack/Rugs etc for charity ... help pse

    Some of us at the yard are having a clear out and have quite a lot of (some quite decent) stuff, ie T/O rugs, fly rugs, bridles, old bits and headcollars, plus a few half used tubs of potions, stuff which doesn't fit new horses etc. We would like to donate this to a horse charity and I was...

    Do you view horses for sale on your own?

    Following on from another thread, I have viewed horses on my own in the past, as I know what I want, and like to try them/dismiss them etc before either going back with somebody else or vetting etc. I am an old biddy of 55 and I do now wonder how safe this is, not that I am likely to be...

    Barbsby Adjustable Saddles

    Does anyone have any experience of these please? From what I can see on e-bay Barnsby have produced a saddle that you can alter the fit from medium to wide (or med wide) by simply turning a couple of screws. I have tried googling Barnsby website but it appears to be down. I have no idea...

    Peeps near Witham Friary, Somerset

    About 5 weeks ago I went to see a lovely 9 YO 15.1 grey l/w cob type mare that was being sold by a girl who was called (I think) Kaza. She had been advertised on Horsequest. I remember Kaza (?) saying she had a sister who rode and the yard in Witham Friary (which was a brick american barn...

    My missing terrier may be near Bath ...

    Please can anybody near there keep a look out. He is on Doglost No 23333 and has been missing since May 2010. I have been contacted by somebody who would love for me to find him who has said that they tried 'dowsing' and he could be living as a stray in woods in Bath near to the Midford...

    Warmbloods - Have they changed?

    Just a an observation really. Sister's first warmblood, by Welf, that she had almost 30 years ago looked as though she could pull a plough. Her next 15 years ago, by Flemmingh, seemed to be a lot lighter, then she had one by Dimaggio 3 years ago that was almost TB type and her new one by Romeo...

    Horses are SUCH great levellers ...

    Got my chap in from his very sparse paddock this morning. Being a hungry, bad mannered little toad he managed to escape my clutches as usual and we did our usual routine to the stables, him trotting off a couple of strides and stuffing as much grass in his gob as possible, allowing me to catch...

    Gurgle the Greek

    Just read a post in NL joking about a shetland pony doing Badminton, saying there was nothing in the rules to penalise them going under the fence rather than over it. Now, if my very hazy memory serves me correctly, did not GtG successfully go under the Coffin in the early 70s without a...

    Update on Stray Dog

    So pleased to be able to report that I spoke to the Dog Warden this afternoon and apparently the owners collected him from the vets I left him at, after frantically ringing around trying to find him, so he didn't even make it to the kennels who were on their way to collect him when they got a...

    Just found a stray dog

    As title really. Parking my car up my NTR terrace in Bridgwater and a staffy cross (maybe), black and tan with white toes on his front feet and white on his chest, a full tail and all his bits intact:o:o came running up. As I know he does not live on my terrace and was heading off towards...

    Can/Do Dog Thieves Remove Chips

    As the title really. Spoke to a lady today whose lurcher is missing. She has heard 'rumours' that it is possible for the less honest members of our society to remove microchips (and I'm not talking vets here). Horrified, as I had my terrier pinched and am hoping that at some point his chip...
