    When you loan out your horse/pony.......

    As reasonably experienced 'loanees' of ponies, we have done both, i.e. taken out the insurance & paid for it ourselves & also, left it in the hands of the (reliable!) owners. I prefer the former though & have also made sure that MD is insured in her own right on a rider policy.

    Any ideas???

    Years ago, one of our Border Collie bitches ended up with a singleton pup after an emergency Caesarian (he was the only one in there as it happened though! lol) We carried him everywhere from a very young age, took him to dog club (sat him on a towel on a table) & perhaps spent more time...

    Does anybody have..?

    Girls have several of the 4-in-1 type, in various colours, to match whatever else thy're wearing! lol Very useful says MD, who is one of these feeble types that literally cease functioning if the temperature drops below +5! Wears it all the time in chilly/cold weather, swapping from full-on...

    Horses and the food chain.

    [ QUOTE ] I thought burgers in general were made from cow's anus, eyelids etc...not horses? S [/ QUOTE ] Well, yes they are usually but I still don't want to take the chance!

    Horses and the food chain.

    When LBO pops his clogs, the hounds can have him but I don't want him ending up in the equivalent of a Maccy D or something!"

    Which breeds of dogs do "you" class as "vicious", untrustworthy???

    Most of the guarding breeds if bred by ignorant or backstreet breeders from poor stock with little or no regard for temperament, i.e. GSD's, Rotties etc. (Or 'over bold' dogs that won't back down no matter what, often of imported stock - fine for Ringsport types or if your name's Mick Martin but...

    Anyone do flyball?

    I don't think I have any flyball pics sadly as it was only a bit of 'light relief' for her really! (She was phenomenally fast though & always knew exactly where to pass to the millisecond & would totally lose her rag with any dog that messed up the run or got in her way - typical 'only...

    Anyone do flyball?

    I know what you mean blackeventer - flyball is not something I would want to do in isolation! We competeed fairly seriously at agility & the manic fun of flyball was my for my collie, the equivalent of going to a rave! lol (I definitely wouldn't want to do it full time but as a bit of fun or...

    Anyone do flyball?

    And I think Stella would make an A1 flyball dog - she has every quality & attribute needed to be first rate!

    Anyone do flyball?

    My old collie was a '4 second' flyball dog - i.e. she could make the entire run, there & back in a 4 something second time! Years after she stopped doing it, you could say to her 'go to your place' & she would go & stand by 'her' spot by the 'H' at the riding school where we...

    Rambo duo rug

    LBO loves his Rambo Duo - fits perfectly, is totally waterproof & with his 2 separate liners, he is pretty much covered for every eventuality! I probably wouldn't use the liner as a stable rug though, as for one thing, it would be covered in poop & piddle & then have to go under the...

    Oops - dopey child - bloomin' unbelieveable!

    I have said as little s possible to school tbh, as MD is not exactly the most academic of kids & she was desparate to do the PE course! Hope I didn't make a mistake there - she has grown a lot recently in height, so hoping that this growth spurt has something to do with it? (Will have to go...

    stupid winter

    Yes, until now it's been homework first, ponies second but from now on in, it'll be the other way round during the week! lol Won't be able to get quite so much work done with BB but hopefully at least we won't have to worry about the dreaded 'L' for much longer, so that's one good thing about...

    Oops - dopey child - bloomin' unbelieveable!

    Yes, lots of chocolate is definitely in order! lol She squawked & swore quite a lot, so I'm presuming it hurt a fair bit! Am getting quite worried now as she is taking PE as a separate GCSE subject & has already had to drop out of one 'bleep test' (where she normally scores very...

    we just got a new dog!!

    [ QUOTE ] He sounds lovely. Why were they giving him away? [/ QUOTE ] I imagine the clue was in the first sentence........! lol "He's a 2yr old Boxer, very bouncy and loving but needs a bit more training!!!" (You know what boxers are like, bless 'em - probably just a case of 'too much dog'...

    I have been really pleased with our Horseware Ireland Rhino h/w turnouts - totally waterproof & fit most things really well! Round about the 100 quid mark I think?

    Oops - dopey child - bloomin' unbelieveable!

    MD has dislocated her shoulder - it was put back immediately but the surrounding muscles are really swollen & she now has one shoulder sitting a good 2 inches higher than the other one! (Should point out she does this quite a lot, as she is seriously double-jointed & occasionally puts...

    Favourite yard job!

    I have to join the 'making up feeds' lot here, I just love this job! I am soooooo sad I even top 'n' tail the carrots & cut them up into equal size pieces just to make the task last a little longer! (You can do this when you only have two feed buckets of course! lol)

    Hope it's ok to post a cat question on here

    Several of our older cats have decided that they are no longer going to eat biscuits, thank you very much, so have been offered more tinned meat instead! If you don't want your house & garden looking like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre on a regular basis, an extra tin of Whiskas or whatever...

    Does this sound right???

    Not sure about the weird vest things but lungeing a 2 year old for 20 minutes...every night...over jumps!?! Definitely not! What do the vests actually do then? Never mind turning them out in them, why do they need to be lunged in the ruddy things?
