Just a view from a different persepective :)
I am comp groom recently looking for a F/T position (tried the whole multiple P/T thing - not really financially viable). I have worked with horses for many years and except that long hours, low pay is part of the job -its a lifestyle and one that...
Another vote for buying horse with scaring - i bought a 4yr old with a scar to his hind fetlock and extends down into his hoof making shoeing a little difficult (odd size feet and difficultly placing nails at first) but its all cosmetic and its mainly other folk that have a problem with it...
ditto what SophieBailey
I have mine in my field shelter they are fab; thick, durable and warm.
Like it has been said, the only downside is they do absorb water/urine but do not turn 'squeltchy' just need washing off every few months :)
It would be shame to turn down a freebie :D :D
thank you for all the replies. i am not sure how successful syringing the bute in a solution would be as worming him is already a bit of a battle.
the vet has issued me with sachets of bute, so cant really use an alternative either.
Any other suggestions would be gratefully recieved:)
Long and short of the story one of my horses has to be on bute for 2 weeks am and pm, however little problem he doesnt like the taste - cue feed bucket going flying across the stable :mad: :rolleyes:
So any suggestions how to mask the taste? i did think apple juice but not sure he is big fan...
I have the ones from the first link and LOVE them!:D They are on their second winter and still look healthly, despite being unloved :o:p. They put up with me wearing them every day for work, my own horses and when i am on the farm. (so in theory on my feet from 6am until 7pm except for riding...
YAY!! thank you, this has just made my day:)
I was really worried that i wouldnt be allowed and would have to ride my other horse for the teams qualifer (no offence to him but he is about as useful for dressage as chocolate teapot) :o :rolleyes:
ok so i am a little confused for the vaccination section of the BRC rules. so if anyone could explain it to me in simple terms i would be very grateful!
