    Boots for arthritic paws?

    After recommendations for some boots for my creaky Grottweiler. Warm and soft, but resilient, and waterproof would be good too. Must also open out for insertion of boneless, floppy paws (how do they do that?!) and stay put once on. Any suggestions/ones to avoid? Thanks!

    If you've a Rambo Sweet Itch Hoody and...

    ....the bloody ear holes are too close together to fit without cutting your horse's fuzzy little ears off, there is hope! There is a line of stitching on the head part that goes between the ears, if you carefully cut the stitching (a stitch unpicker would be ideal, but small, sharp scissors...

    Calling Appy Experts!

    My big, daft Appy x rhino mare has undergone a dramatic markings change. If they are going to varnish out, what age range does this usually start at and how quickly does it happen? She has considerably more white on her head and more white spots on her shoulders and gullet than she did in her...

    Unsubscribing from Robinsons

    As I am no longer buying stuff from Robinsons, I unsubscribed from their emails. Should have been simple enough, right? Nope. I am now receiving unsolicited emails from... guess who... Sports Direct. I unsubscribed from the fourth email in as many days this morning :mad: Has anyone...

    Eventa Rein Grips

    Does anyone here know if you can actually buy these without being a saddler? I've got some reins with grips I don't like and want to swap them over. I have a pair of Eventa reins, but I really don't want to have to break them for spares if I can help it :D Cheers dudes :)

    How Far Gone?

    As I seem to have inadvertently bought a (probably) pregnant mare, and I've not had anything much to do with broodmares for over twenty years, and not very much then, I was wondering if you experienced people could give me a rough estimate on how advanced this mare might be. I know there are a...

    Oh **** Might have a BOGOF

    Home pregnancy test showed a positive, vet coming tomorrow for a blood sample to confirm. 'Not in foal' vibes required here! It is absolutely the last thing I need right now. Why are people so bloody irresponsible? :mad::(

    If You Are Advertising a Horse For £££,£££

    Then why not invest a few quid in a decent (pro) rider and a competent (pro) photographer? Then your amazing/scopey/uphill/fantastic prospect/beautifully moving well-bred horse might not look so much like an average/rushing/on the forehand/poorly schooled 'meh' type of horse. When the only...

    New Horse - I've Lost The Plot!

    Last Sunday morning a box arrived in my yard and deposited a funny-looking mare. Gawd knows why I bought her, I don't 'do' mares and she's not my type, plus I wasn't even looking (oops!) and to cap it all, I did something extremely inadvisable and bought her unseen, untried and unvetted. :eek...

    URGENT! Three stables and grazing needed - change of location.

    Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am now looking for three stables, or a big shelter/barn and fairly non-fattening grazing for my three. Within ten miles of Newton Abbot/Kingskerswell/Torquay. Many thanks.

    Three stables (barn/shelter?) + flexible grazing wanted S. Devon

    Still trying to find a good yard! Sole let would be ideal, but a small, friendly livery yard could suit. In the Kingskerswell, Dainton, Ipplepen, Woodland areas. Here's what I'm after... Flexible grazing, as I have two fatties and one skinny who like to be out as much as possible. One of...

    Best reins for long manes?

    As above really, I'm wondering which type of reins (if any!) are less likely to snag in a huge, bouffant horsey hairdo? And no, I'm not going to hog him! :p
