    Introducing my WUAS foal!

    Very pleased with this chap, born May 2nd 2012 - my mare has done me absolutely proud again! I asked her to cook me a neddy that could jump like his father, gallop like his mother and have just a touch of movement like his grandad and uncle! :D Okay, at not quite four weeks old, I will...

    Please may I have your thoughts on FOC/asking a small price when 'rehoming' ....

    ... having never been in this situation before and am trying to help my parents. Just to clarify, said pooch will always have a safe and welcome home with them, but there is a definite arguement that the little lass will have a more fulfilling life with somebody else now :(. It may not come...

    Puppy 'parties' ???

    I may be going mad (quite probable actually :D) but I thought there was such a thing as young puppy socialisation classes / parties that you could attend so that puppies could play and socialise with new dogs - like pre-school to first puppy training classes? Out new little fuss pot is 9...

    370 days and still waiting....

    ... but Today, we have wax! I am just hopeful that the wait is almost over, and that all goes well. My poor lady is enormous, has been very uncomfortable for many days now and as just been (very) steadily progressing. You cannot imagine how grateful I am to have friends who are happy to...

    Hoping to pick your brains as I have heard a lot about the use of this product for treating proud flesh? Even looking through posts on here noone has said they have used it without success, which sounds good - the trouble is, nowhere on the website does it actually say whats in it! I am sure...

    Suffolk Horses / Breeders

    I'm curious because I've loved this breed from quite a young age when we had some pure bred mares at work. They were more for display and at the time I didn't wonder too much about their breeding program! Are there many breeders now? Would they be mainly studs or private individuals? Are...

    Exactly how boisterous...

    ... are your labrador pups?! At around 12 weeks old, for example? Does anyone have a 'quiet' one? Does anyone have a super crazy one? And how have they grown into adulthood - have they carried they traits on or have they calmed down / come out of their shell?! We lost our last lab...

    ET Mares

    Sorry if this has been discussed before, but what is the best way of finding out whether anyone is looking for ET mares, on a free loan basis? Because of a change in direction in breeding this year, two very easy breeders and good mum's (8 and 10 years old) are to be left empty. Lovely mares...
