A friend had her trailer stolen recently, she's just found it and got it back. How did she do it?
She got on the internet and searched for it on every FB marketplace in the country, tracked it down, over 20 days it had changed hands at least 3 times, it's been all over the UK and she's driven...
After just writing some stuff about Welshies this morning, went down the field to find my beautiful other mare, my standardbred, dead.
It looks as though it was colic, she was fine at 6.30 yesterday evening.
Feeling terrible. Go and hug your horse.
Signing off for a bit. X
It's been 3 years since we moved to Wales and half the reason we moved was for having our own land and the gorgeous riding here. But disaster struck within the first year and we sadly lost our wonderful arab x welsh mare, she was 25, broken fetlock in the field. I was left with my elderly arab...
If the link works...I absolutely must go and see this, it looks amazing.
I was in my field a couple of hours ago checking my little herd, routine, not difficult as it's next to my house and I'm down there at least twice a day. My best boy, an arab who I've owned for nearly 20 years, can be quite offish unless there's a treat or a bucket of feed involved. 'No treats...
My horse has come back off loan minus her passport, her loaner as lost it in a house move (aargh!)
I'm now wanting to sell the horse (very sadly) and I can't for life of me remember which passport issuer the passoport was with. I need to get her a new one, any advice or recommendations please?
I watched this expecting the worst. But what owning horses has done for those young men is truly great, despite it not being the most ideal place to keep them. Worth a share I thought.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a company in Powys or surrounding area that supplies and builds barns or field shelters?
We're after an approx 36' X 12' new static field shelter/barn but not knowing the area very well..yet....I need some recommendations.
Did anyone else see this amazing woman with her herd of Connemaras on the One Show yesterday?
It was in 2 parts, the first starts at about 15 minutes in, the second at about 52 minutes.
Beautiful ponies, gorgeous...
Just having a little trawl through Ebay and found this.
I wonder who they are, anybody recognise themselves? (I'm not the...
You know when you've finally had enough with the last dregs of winter when you're battling with a muddy rug blowing around in the wind, attempting to put it on a horse that won't stand still. And you are overheard by 2 passing liveries to shout 'oh you stupid RUG!!! just ******* off and DIE'...
...massive tree came down in the entrance to my field, thank god the horses had the sense to scuttle away when it fell!!
Last night I had to get my goofy 4 year old in from the field. She's 16.3 and somewhat giddy and athletic at the best of times, it didn't help that the weather was awful, pouring with rain with a howling gale, and the tracks from the field to the yard are knee deep in mud.
Nothing set in stone yet but we just might/maybe/possibly be moving to Minehead early next year. I'll be looking for DIY livery for 3 horses and a pony and could do with some recommendations. Cheers for reading.
Trawling through some vintage horse stuff on ebay I came across this.
What is it? Is it a rug? A cloak? A pony cloak???? Grandma's headscarf? A failed...
I've just opened the wine and am raising a toast to the most wonderful YO we've ever had who passed away this week. He was a traditional yeoman farmer from generations of the same, round and jolly, Wiltshire accent as thick as butter, generous hearted, great sense of humour, loved a few pints of...
A very long shot, I know, but if anyone knows of a little self contained yard with grazing for rent in the Bath area please do give me a shout. I'm looking for...
At least 2 stables, with hard standing..
a barn/field shelter type set up.
Approx 5 acres.

Does anyone know what farmers might be spraying their land with at the moment and if it might affect horses?
As I was leaving the yard early yesterday evening a farmer was at work on his land across the lane, I couldn't see what he was doing but it involved a tractor towing something. When I...
Argh. Aaarrrgh!!!!! There's a dopey woman who's taken over my one day a week at the local charity shop (bear with me, this is a horsey rant) because I can't do the shift any more due to having to much to do at the yard. So dopey woman, having got wind of me having horses, has asked if she can...
