    Riding a horse w/ bone spavin...

    I know how you feel, but don't loose heart. My lad was diagnosed with spavin last year. He had an odd action rather than hoping lame. x-rays showed us it was starting to fuse so we kept him going quietly, got his shoes changed, he went on to eggbars, but wedges are used for spavin as well. I...

    Menage maintenance - YO or livery responsibility?

    I can't get over how little some schools get harrowed. Our school is in constant use, its rare to get it to yourself, but it is huge with a great surface so can cope with heavy use. But we harrow at least once a day. The clients don't harrow it as they are not covered by insurance to drive the...
