    WWYD? Rehoming pair of ponies

    If your other half is attached to them and is reluctant to let them go, why do you feel you must take charge and sell them? They aren’t “wasted” being horses together, they have no HOY‘s ambitions. I would be sensitive to his feelings as a recently bereaved, and I imagine the ponies will give...

    HOYS - Showing the world that a lame and obese pony can be a champion

    The mini’s are judged vey highly on manners, and for tiny riders with really only the goodwill of their ponies to keep them safe in a highly charged atmosphere this is the first and foremost consideration to me. I am quite surprised at some of the comments, re grab straps. I’d rather see a 3...

    They say never meet your childhood hero....

    As a child of the 60 s I can honestly say that I am not offended by words. However,if someone says something derogatory I will respond. The whole being offended thing worries me. People are so careful with words now, that heartfelt honest reactions seems to be very difficult. Don‘t be offended...

    Agrobs Mash - worth the hype?

    I bought this off amazon, and I'm a little bit suspicious as I hadn't heard of the retailer before, and it was supposed to be the mash.

    Pregnancy improving lameness??

    If it helps, pregnancy really reduced the pain from bone spurs I had on my hip joint. I have no idea why.

    Agrobs Mash - worth the hype?

    Mine loves the Agrobs mash and it sorted out his loose poos. He looks great on it. ( He wasn't at all keen on the muesli and it looked different to me from when I last bought it, a few years back. There were no little flowers and the fibres were coarser.)

    Panorama tonight - racing industry and slaughterhouses

    Tops spec Vet of the Year, Natalie McGoldrick has just written a brave post on Facebook saying how much she hated her time as a vet, in slaughterhouses. The horses were all terrified, without exemption, and so were cows and sheep. I wish this was banned, and a humane destruction at home was...

    Supplement for Older Equine Question

    For PSSM, try agrobs mash which I started mine on one winter for weight loss. Honey chop low calorie chaff is good as a fibre edition. I add oil and currently mega boswellia.

    Need reassurance - am I doing the right thing?

    I would expect a horse in pain or discomfort to let the rider know, and bucking is one way they do that. Confidence is a funny thing, and can evaporate, then suddenly return as if nothing had ever happened, I"ve found. I think he sounds great, it takes time to build trust, and with children and...

    Is there (or should there be) a ceiling weight to horse riding

    I find it madness that parent’s don’t take responsibility for providing healthy meals for their children. It is an intrinsic part of being a parent. Many schools actively discourage sweet snacks being brought to school and children shouldn’t be sharing lunches with each other for several...

    Is there (or should there be) a ceiling weight to horse riding

    There is no rule, guidance or anything else which suggests 20% is ok! I will be so happy when I stop seeing this ancient army folklore from history being rehashed as if it was scientific data.

    Bengal cats

    We have a Bengal, very traumatised on arrival, hid and slunk around for weeks. He is adorable, friendly, vocal and fun. Also very intelligent and extremely beautiful, spotty like a snow leopard in colour. His coat is like silk velvet and the very fine hairs mean extra hoovering. We have not yet...

    New fangled girths - are they really worth the money

    I would always trial first, as I know several people who have bought the latest must have, which doesn't suit their horse and/or saddle. I tend not to change unless there is a problem with the kit I have.
