    Is it ever appropriate to ask for money?

    The only online one I ever use if I choose to donate to something is Just Giving and where it goes direct to a designated charity. Tough as it sounds, unless it is a friend in need nothing would make me send money to an online stranger. I too understood the owners family in this case of...

    Deposits...when its right to keep them

    Unless it was paid subject to vetting and the horse subsequently failed the vet then I feel the seller has every right to hold on to the deposit. Otherwise people could go round willy nilly putting deposits down on horses, preventing other potential buyers seeing them and still pull out.

    just sad, is all ...

    So very sorry. To have had such a beautiful horse and friend in your life from his beginning to the day he had to leave you. So very few horses have that, you will never be truly parted x

    Is anyone else not entirely convinced by the Horse Hoarders plight?

    Could the RSPCA verify they were his horses at his previous dwelling? As the poster on here who was taken there said they reported him to them. And also, have those images been forwarded to Channel 4? Sod follow up programmes about Clwyd skipping off into the sunset, they need to see the...

    Cortez you are wrong there. The comment about him keeping the horses came from one of the Admins on that site!

    Is anyone else not entirely convinced by the Horse Hoarders plight?

    Have read on FB this morning that a Paypal account has been set up via a non registered charity, because the registered Charity which Michelle has got apparently hasn't got a Paypal account. Like it takes long to set one up? The donations will be used for Clwyd to 'KEEP HIS HORSES'. Eh? I'm...

    has anyones yard stopped turn out due to the wet?

    We can have our horses out 24/7 but are choosing to have them in for a few hours each day at the moment. There is plenty of grass but I want to know they have got hay in their bellies as well. These conditions worry me for GS or AM and I understand one of the pieces of advice is to feed hay to...

    60 cattle horses about to get washed away!

    Have just seen a photo of a dead foal and read that that were others partially buried under the mud. No way of verifying if from this group of horses or not as I don't live there, but from the comments it would appear so. Hope whoever owns them and allowed that to happen is prosecuted and...

    The Boy

    You've chosen a very handsome horse there, shall look forward to your future photos. See if you can find a saddler who can bring lots of different saddles to try on him, so you can see not only what fits him but what feels comfortable to you as well. Don't let them fit too narrow a saddle as...

    Would you give 'the finger' to a driver?

    Has the opening post been deleted? I would never do that, who is to say a driver wouldn't then turn round and do something to really hurt your horse with their vehicle. Not worth the risk. And also puts other horse riders in the firing line too if they consider all of us to be the same.

    "Intelligent Horsemanship", IHDG forum - dictatorship?

    Noobs you are coming across as churlish and like you have a serious superiority complex going on. Nobody has to be part of a cult to have the common sense and good horsemanship skills to evaluate any trainer and utilise the good points and disregard the bad. Yes there will always be clowns...

    large bales of hay in the field

    Could you rig up some kind of tarpaulin cover using pallets or wooden posts to protect it from the worst of the weather, with the horses able to access the hay down the sides? Fairly sure I saw some specially designed covers for round bales, but for the price they were I remember thinking a bit...
