    I'm west scotland and found some in my paddock in flower last week too! Pulled it out and disposed of. Unfortunately I'm the only one on the yard who does this. Everyone else thinks I'm mad scouring the field!

    No, he was gelded the day after I bought him. We are at livery so didn't have the facilities to keep him entire. But he'd fathered a couple of foals. I'll look out some pictures! He's around 15.1 / 2 at the mo x

    Thanks guys. He was a little diamond in the rough. He has the sweetest nature ever. And is quite the mover. His dad was German warmblood and his mother was Dutch x welsh.

    He's very unusual lol. Plan was to bring him on and sell. But he's growing on me, but he'll have this winter with us and the started the year, may show him as a 4yo then wait and see. He really is part of the gang now.
