    Awful pony!

    I love him! I bet you can't help but smile at his antics (whilst secretly swearing to yourself about what a naughty little sh#tland he is) :D

    Should I tell them?

    What is your dog's favourite toy?

    Thanks for all the ideas guys, definitely going to check out some of these :) I bought her a Kong treat ball from amazon and she loves the ball, but had even more fun with the little cardboard box it came in! She's certainly a character :P

    those on full livery - how often do you see your horse ?

    I moved from DIY for 5 years to full livery in March, and I must have only not gone up about 5 days since then! My mare has been on box rest too so I could have just let them see to her but she is my best buddy and I love seeing her every day. It is great though knowing that there is no pressure...

    What is your dog's favourite toy?

    I have got a cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy called Rosa who is now 11 weeks old and is truly awesome and is helping to make me smile after losing Poppy (her half sister). I can't post a photo atm but she's on Instagram as @rosathecavalier if anyone wants to see her cute face! :P Anyway...

    Where best to find a child's pony?

    Ask around at your local pony clubs and riding clubs, you may find a great pony that has been there and got the t-shirt. Asking your instructor if your son had one would be a good place to start too as well as obviously trawling the horse ads sites and local fb groups and pc message boards :)

    Warning - Contains tiny puppy photos!

    Thanks guys :) Losing poppy absolutely broke my heart and I still end up randomly bursting into tears if someone mentions the accident when I'm not expecting it. I think I'm ready now to let little Rosa stamp her paws on my heart though hehe :) Going to see her again next Thursday so will update...

    Warning - Contains tiny puppy photos!

    In december me and my best friend Poppy, my Cavalier KC Spaniel were hit by a car and sadly she didn't make it. Life has been utterly lonely and a bit pants without her. I told her breeder about what happened and she said Poppy's mum Lily was going to have her third and last litter this year...

    Lunging with two reins? Photos?

    Damnation, what does the line coming over her back do? Just give extra 'support'? I've only ever lunged with a single line or long reined so I'm just curious as I've never seen a horse lunged like yours before :)

    Would you leave? Help!

    Get out of there as soon as you can! Horses are to be enjoyed and this lady is making your time with your mare stressful and that's not on. Give your notice and find a new yard asap, you won't regret it :)

    Horse Treats

    I've been feeding celery as a healthier treat, and it's super cheap too :)

    Insurance for 'sharer'

    When I had a sharer I just got her to get herself basic rider insurance, I think she got it through petplan and it was pretty cheap. My mare is insured but I just wanted to cover all bases with the sharer being insured too. Your sharer sounds great, I hope it works out well :)

    Average Full Livery Price?

    I pay £346 a month, which is £80 pw. They do everything for me and all feed and hay is included. We have an outdoor school, lunge pen and great offroad hacking. They dont groom her unless I'm away but they do pick feet out. My mare is currently on full box rest and needs cold hosing and...

    Box rest - Help!

    That's a good idea, thank you! The vet suggested celery as a healthier treat so I'll have to see what she thinks of that :P

    DIY livery query

    When I was on DIY i paid £25pw over summer when they were out 24/7 and £45pw plus bedding in winter. I still had use of my stable although I gutted it out and left it to dry all summer. The yard I am at now (full livery but there are a couple of DIY liveries too) is the same all year round. If...

    Would you ever buy from a seller who lied

    Go with your head not your heart, walk away and keep looking for something that ticks all the boxes. There's no point buying a pony that has doubtful showing history and issues which would affect its showing career when there are hundreds of others out there that would be suitable. Be patient...

    Meet the Donks (pics)

    Lovely donkeys! I've just left a yard which had a donkey on and he was such a character, in fact he's the only thing I miss haha. Sorry to hear about your horse, hopefully these long eared bundles of trouble will stamp their hooves over your heart pretty soon :)

    My mare discovered a new snack!

    Hahaha now I have loads of ideas of lots of things to try to give her now! We weren't sure she'd like the skin so he just fed her the squidgy bit. I can't stand bananas but if she likes them I may have to buy a few :P To the person who said she was clean, she'd just had a brush that's why...

    My mare discovered a new snack!

    Bella loves normal treats like carrots and swede, but today my boyfriend decided he wanted to give her a new treat. I was expecting her to spit it out but I think she liked it! What's your horse's favourite treat?

    First It Was Chickens

    I can't justify buying any more rugs but I did order a saddle bag in the dog print, kind of excited to arrive haha. The chicken idea was awesome too, they should do a unicorn printer!
