    INTERESTING ARTICLE FROM THE WOKINGHAM TIMES

    Very interesting missfitz. Interesting comments at the bottom too - the usual "selfish riders should stay off the roads and ride round fields" stuff. I don't think people understand that you can't just go into a random field and ride round, and that the fields don't actually link to one...

    Missing: 2 Patterdale Terriers, Barnsley

    They are frantic :( Lots of rats and rabbits around, so I think they're probably enjoying themselves, oblivious to the heartache, and will probably come home once the weather turns.

    Missing: 2 Patterdale Terriers, Barnsley

    Thanks Jo, yes they're in touch with local dog wardens. Owner is a vet, so all chipped and up to date :) Hoping they come back soon.

    Tweseldown Sections are up

    We're fence judging both days, so look out for the old, rusty, blue 4x4 and the black and tan terrier if you're walking the course. If you're walking with dogs, look for the noisy, bouncy, terrier (she is friendly, despite first appearances). Always nice to meet new people :)

    PTS methods/oppinions wanted ....

    QR Well done on making a brave decision. I'm sure your horse would thank you for it if he could. I've had 1 injected and 1 shot. Both went quickly and without fuss. I chose the injection for the first one, she was very old (37) and ready to go. She was comfortable with vets and...

    Horse being PTS question

    QR Had my 13hh pony PTS by injection - approx £175 vet costs and £350 cremation costs (no ashes returned). Had my 16hh horse shot, and "economic disposal", £200+VAT, by the same disposal company as above - they don't charge for shooting. I chose the best method for each horse - the...

    Berkshire livery yards

    I was at Wheats Farm. Once we'd sorted out the turnout issues, it was fantastic. Wouldn't hesitate to go back there. Only left as my mare needed individual turnout during her twilight years (she kept getting into scraps!). They do 24/7 turnout during the summer, and daily turnout during...

    There won't be a Hickstead report, there won't be any more reports from Soap :(

    Oh bugger :( Don't give up on him - I know so many horses who have been diagnosed with navicular, but are still sound and competing years later - 2 eventers, a polo pony, and a dressage horse, and those are just the ones I've looked after. All have been treated with medication and rehab...

    Mattingley unaff Intro

    You're right, I'm getting my courses muddled up - the trouble with FJing for both days, I can't remember which was which lol. So are Mattingley running the champs on the Sunday then? I've been asked back to FJ but have no details at all, other than the dates.

    Mattingley unaff Intro

    25/26 September I *think*. Course is normally fairly kind. Based on the event in May, there were ditches at 6 (half coffin I think), 15 (ditch palisade), and possibly at 17 (getting my courses muddled now, but I think it's a ditch in front of a step up??). As far as I know, no trakehner...

    Absolutely gutted :( what do I do now? :(

    Not wishing to bad mouth the polo world, but having spent 8 seasons as a groom, I have seen all sides of it. Firstly, polo ponies don't often have the same groom for more than 1 season. Secondly, the owner/player quite often doesn't know the ponies names, ages, history etc. Thirdly, very...

    BE- Volunteering- Events that look after their helpers?

    There's normally a form on the Blenheim website which you can fill out and email back. That's how I got to help (last year). You do need to do it well in advance though - I sent mine to them in February and heard back in April, making arrangements for September. I think they're keen to get...

    Eventing Fence Judge 'Expenses'

    I'm a regular fence judge who also dabbles in some timekeeping. We do approx 30 days a year. We attempted to cut down this year, but it hasn't really worked! For me, money isn't the issue. We were very touched to be offered some money towards fuel by one event earlier in the year. We...

    Stolen puppies - Berkshire

    Yes, basically, led to the thief being recognised and the name given to the owner. Pups were dumped shortly after. Couldn't have done it without Facebook! That's where the pic was seen and rcognised, and the support has been fantastic. ETS....I think she may keep these ones now!!

    Stolen puppies - Berkshire

    They've been checked over and outwardly fine, but obviously no idea what they may have been exposed to, so they can't go back with their mum and litter mates. It's a shame, but at least they're safe and they are *just* old enough to cope without mum. Just hope the police act on what they've...

    Yep, they are in the back of the owners car, travelling home as I type. They were dumped and handed in to a vets, following all the publicity on news sites, FB, Twitter, Doglost and all of the other sites. No doubt there will be happy reunion pictures soon! Thank you all so much for your...
