    Another yard boot thread but need recent opinions!

    Hi guys, I'm really struggling to find some yard/work boots for the Winter that will manage what I need them to! Our fields get very muddy and I'm on my feet all day, so they need to withstand deep mud throughout the day, be fully waterproof for regular hosing off, warm, and not split!! I...

    Hello to Goodbye! :)

    PLEASE check your fencing and drive carefully in this weather.

    A facebook friend lost her beloved horse Sam today after a fallen tree broke his fencing and he was hit by a car. :( She would like this shared as if it makes just one person check their fences again, or drive more carefully, it is worth it. "I can't keep this post on my timeline as I can't...

    Smidge that Midge

    Just wanted to pass on a recommendation for Smidge that Midge repellent! We got it to try on our sweet itch horse and it has helped him, rode out today and sprayed all horses and people with it and it was a much more enjoyable hack than we had on Tuesday with no fly spray of any kind on! It...

    Short yard boots for summer - recommendations?

    I need a pair of boots for summer as my feet/legs are sweating in this heat in my muck boots that go quite far up my legs! I need to use the internet to order and I have quite narrow feet so any that are (or any to avoid) good for narrow feet would be helpful! And I would prefer ones with...

    White show halters - best/where to get?

    I thought this would be simple, but there are lots of different ones! Can anyone recommend the best kind to get and where is a good place to buy from online, that isn't too expensive! He has a tiny head (section a) :p I take it the ones with the butterfly type lead are better, they look...

    Operation "Get Ollie to a Show" :D

    Right, I have never shown anything in my life and I've only been to a couple of shows ever as a spectator :p Ollie is 7 and currently being backed and hasn't done much either so it will be his first show too. So we're both total novices :D We don't usually show our ponies and it is just for a...

    Sleep tight Blackie xx

    I've avoided this for a couple of weeks but I think a fair few of you followed my posts when I was younger about Blackie (when my username was Back_2_Black!) so I wanted to post about it. It might not make a lot of sense I apologise :o Three days after we lost our old girl Flicka, which we had...

    Said goodbye to the old girl today :(

    Mossburn said goodbye to our oldest resident today, our 41 year old mare Flicka. She was struggling yesterday, wasn't eating/drinking and had a temperature but was bright in herself so the vet gave antibiotics and took bloods. The bloods were clear but she still hadn't eaten today and seemed...

    Box rest baby went out!!

    After 3 weeks Treena and Daisy both finally got out into the small round pen, sedated yesterday (great, want to sedate her all the time ;) ) and normally today!

    Treena's hernia op went very well and she should be back at Mossburn tomorrow :) She has a minimum of 2 weeks box rest so any ideas to keep her occupied? :D She is intelligent, and loves to lick things but the likit holders are a bit expensive for 2 weeks worth of use. I will try turnip...

    Our baby is going for her op tomorrow!

    Treena has her hernia operation tomorrow and I know she will be fine but she only little (sort of!) :( Not looking forward to the box rest, and our 40 year old Flicka will go crazy at being separated from Treena, so sedative is on standby for her :( Although hopefully she'll be back in a...

    I'm so angry! :(

    Most of you know I work at a rescue centre, has just been on ITV news tonight. Mossburn had £600 worth of fuel stolen over Christmas leaving the big house and staff caravan, and the feed rooms etc, with no heating or hot water for 3 days. Stealing from a charity is just really low :( :(...
