    Competing at the GYS

    Great info, thanks a grooming bag water bottle will be added to my list. I’m intending on having as many folk as possible from yard standing twirling umbrellas and pushing pushchairs round our arena for a good spot of desensitisation before we go.

    Competing at the GYS

    After much humming and haaaing, I’ve decided to take the baby boy to the GYS for the PB CB class and Hunter Breeding 2yr old class. I’m aware we’ll likely be hopelessly outclassed, but I’m willing to spend the money to come last (and it’s an excuse for me to buy a new better fitting tweed, don’t...

    What happens to our horses if there is a WW3?

    If it really goes to poop, we’d have approx 20mins warning of the warhead coming our way according to the article I’ve just read. My anxiety is through the roof today.

    What to do when there is not turnout HELP!!

    How long is your turnout going to be restricted for? If it’s a few days to let the fields dry up then stick with it. Hang up a few small holes haynets round your stable to encourage your horse to move around. Invest in a treat ball and buy cheap as chips ulcer friendly nuts for it. Walk out in...

    Breeders Scotland

    Friends of mine have bought from him. What you see is what you get, if you’ve a good eye, you could pick up a cracker for a good price. I had been planning on a trip down to him, but a youngster came up closer to home.

    HOYS - Showing the world that a lame and obese pony can be a champion

    In-hand showing is much more than simply appearance, it’s the horses way of going, how true to type it is or not, how correctly it moves for the type, a check on manners.

    Sewing Machines for saddle pads

    I have had a shot of an industrial straight stitch sewing machine, you’ll be fine, they’re definitely faster, but not so much that you can’t control it. I want one badly now but have no space for one 😂

    Sanity check please, trip to the beach?

    Soul destroying is about right. Vets are being a bit vague just now to be honest. We’re throwing antibiotics at her in the hope of getting it cleared, if it doesn’t, they’ll take swabs to see what antibiotic might work best. Then shoes on to help reduce concussion on the area if we get it...

    Sanity check please, trip to the beach?

    She hasn’t, the vet thinks very unlikely as it’s always the same hoof and she’s otherwise showing no symptoms at all. I’ll mention it again and see what the vets are saying.
