    Clipper recommendations for feathers

    Looking for recommendations of clippers for fairly heavy cob feathers, as cheap as possible that will do a good job :) Literally only needed for summer to take feathers off so need best value. Thanks :)

    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...

    ideas for medicating fussy cushings pony

    This exact thing has happened with all 4 of ours on prascend, they'll take it in something for a few days then refuse it, and you run out of things eventually! One of ours will eat it in an apple just now but the other 3 we just have to put it in and make sure they don't spit it out. They're all...

    Hello to Goodbye! :)

    Yesterday was my last day working at the rescue centre before I move to do my Masters so I took a photo with my little terror. First time I met her at a couple of weeks old and then just over 2 years later saying goodbye! Her expression is the same haha :D Will miss all the animals a lot :(...

    PLEASE check your fencing and drive carefully in this weather.

    Guys please read this addition to the above post! (I've edited this post as people have assumed the driver was speeding and didn't stop - that is not true - he was on his way to a funeral and he gave me his details. It was a tragic accident and lucky nobody else was killed. I shared this to...

    How long do you leave feeds mixed for?

    We make when we feed too, so about 10 mins. I wouldn't think it would hurt to leave them overnight, but I'd think it would be less appetising :p

    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...

    Your HHO Journey...

    Ollie's thread :)

    Ollie tried his hand at a bit of horse agility today, he was very good at it although a bit of a wimp at times! Here he is with Treena killing the pony eating tarpaulin :p I had my hands full with Treena so only have those two but I'll try get some more off other people :) Him and...

    Ollie's thread :)

    Not a great update but thought I should do one anyway! He was all better after having laminitis and back in a bare paddock and starting to go out on hacks! On the plus side, he is still being so brilliant riding wise :biggrin3: He has been on three hacks so far and has been great, he worries if...

    Smidge that Midge

    Saltidin, the same as Autan but it smells much nicer and I think works better and is (apparently) waterproof etc for 8 hours. We reapply before the 8 hour mark but never noticed it wearing off yet. I used Autan when we went to the highlands and it did work but I would say Smidge works even...

    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...

    Blanco the Bird - What is he?

    Does it have any markings on it's side? I would guess it has leucism and if it is pure white it'll be harder to identify :p
