    Looking for a small yard / yard share in West Berks

    Can anyone help? I'm looking to rent a small yard or sub-let part of a larger yard in the Upper Basildon / Pangbourne / Tidmarsh / Englefield area. I ideally need 4 stables (but happy to pay for more and have them as storage if it makes a yard split easier) and it must be acceptable to turn...

    Canine Bowen Therapists?

    Can anyone help please? A friend is hoping to find a canine bowen therapist for her lovely old boy who has been diagnosed with CDRM. He is having hydro and accupucture but her accupucturist suggested Bowen might help too. She lives in Derbyshire - can anyone recommend someone?

    Dom's first outing in 2011

    Dom had his first venture out this year - in the cold, rainy grey yuk that is currently February. He did two tests (Ele 42 & Ele 57). 42 was indoors and he was tense and did his breath-holding-thing which added to the tension. The judge rightly gave him mostly %s & 6s (well 12x6 and 6x5 but...

    Richard Davison - No throat lash?

    Watching Richard Davison riding Hiscox Artemis at Olympia it appeared that he wasn't using a throat lash? Anyone know why? :confused: Please feel free to shoot me down in flames or tell me that a well known highstreet opticians is the place for me. :D

    Excessive moulting?

    Hi, First of all an apology. I know I only ever venture in here when I have a query but that's cos you're all very wonderfully wise but a bit scary. :o Youngest dog (GSD for those who don't know) is 6 now and appears to be moulting excessively. His coat is in tact (no bald patches) but...

    Cobs can do dressage - a trip to Addington

    This should possibly be in Comp Riders but since I don't ride at competitions I feel a bit of a fraud! :D Took Dom to dressage at Addington today and took a couple of out-of-focus pics (sorry, but my hands were freeeeeezing! :rolleyes:) He didn't do quite as well as his last time out when...

    A trip to Addington :)

    Sorry, this isn't a very exciting report but I just had to share. :o My cob Dom (with his lovely rider Mike) recently moved up to Elementary as we felt he was capable of more and it gave him new things to think about. Like many cobs he's rather bright and, I think, was getting a bit flat in...

    GSD ear - itch/scratch cycle

    Sorry - I only seem to pop in here when I've got a question.... Anyhoo - got home tonight and Woody has an 'annoying' ear. Can't see anything in it but it is quite waxy - but then it would be given the amount of time he has his foot in it!. Is there anything I can use to stop the...

    Elementary my dear Dom.

    Off out for the first time this year and we've made the big (well it feels like it!) step up from Novice to Elementary. :D We went to Hunters cos Dom is usually pretty chilled there and it was nicely overcast (sunlight is one of his headshaking triggers). We were chuffed to bits to be...

    TGM & Enfys.... thank you!!

    Excessive urination (also in veterinary)

    My oldie (35 in June) has, over the past few months, been getting wetter and wetter. His bed squelches some mornings. He is not noticably drinking much more - although I can't monitor his daytime intake as he is out with a largish group. He does have much wetter feeds these days - he has no...

    Hurumph. Weather, horses, winter....

    Do you ever have those weeks when you wonder why you bother? It's yucky wet and raining. Merlin has lost another tooth - he now doesn't have any pairs of molars at all! Millie has had to have cortisone injections in her hock - four weeks off so far and two to come. Unfortunately it's on her...

    How can I trace my IDxTb mares breeding?

    Anyone any ideas how I can trace my mares breeding? I know she was bought from the Cavan Centre but when I contacted them their records don't go back far enough. This is her. She has lots of very distinctive whorls (both long ones and more usual round ones) which she has passed onto her...

    Grrr. Showing frustration. Chestnut mare temper tantrum!

    Took the 2yo and her friend out to their second show today. They loaded beautifully, travelled well and unloaded nicely at the other end. Had quite a long walk through the car park amidst scary lorries, across a road, through the yard - all done with aplomb. Went into the ring, walked and...

    Cobs, dressage and our first 1st at Novice! (pics)

    Off to Hunters today to do Novice 25 and Novice 37. Rather worryingly Dom loaded like an angel so was a bit worried that it was all downhill from there. Arrived early enough to have coffee and start eating before getting tacked up and Mike hopping on board. First test was indoors, 18 (I...

    My little cob does more dressage - pics

    Off we went to dressage yesterday. We were trying a new venue so Dom's first test was very tense but the second one was much nicer. However, they came 2nd in both classes so two nice blue rosettes and another 5 points. Sadly no pics of my own as I gave a hand to a couple of other people there...

    Grooming help Please. Clipping a GSD?

    My older dog (he's eight) is seriously long-haired and is really really suffering in this weather. Obviously he has never been clipped but I'm wondering if I just took his tummy out if it would make life more bearable for him? Would it be a horrible mistake and never grow back or upset his...

    2nd Novice dressage outing for my little black cob.

    So Dom had his second go at Novice affiliated dressage today. The day started on a high when he loaded first time, straight away with no hesitation!! I nearly got him back off again to reward him as it is a 'first time ever' moment. However, horrid me made him go and play at two Novice...

    Our first dressage points - pics (but also in Comp Riders)

    Rode my mare today...

    ... for the first time in about two and a half years! She was absolutely brilliant. Wasn't thrilled to have a girth done up (ears back, grumpy face) but stood nicely at the mounting block. We went onto the school and did a couple of circuits in walk on each rein, asked for a couple of steps...
