    Panorama tonight - racing industry and slaughterhouses

    Most of those sadly were NOT a clean death, being shot from a distance, most within sight of other horses. Some very lame who had travelled from Ireland to England.

    Racehorse slaughter

    Shooting them within sight of each other is so wrong, and as for travelling long distances when they are hopping lame is disgusting, the numbers being bred needs to be reduced, never been a racing fan, although my brother in law had two, does not even know where they ended up.

    Oh gosh, where to start. Trying to buy a pony for a shy 11 year old!

    Most of the rescue places do a loan scheme, some are in Scotland or the north of England.

    Idiot drivers.

    The road is quite wide, the speed limit is 40mph but the black car was going much faster than that, no excuse.

    Idiot drivers.

    On our way to the yard this evening, there was a rider on a bay horse, all decked out in pink bright wear. We passed wide and slow, but a stupid idiot in a black car shot past, way too fast, overtaking us as we went passed the rider, really no need for that.

    The leak first appeared within two weeks of getting the car on January 6th, and he had it back to fix it the first time end of Jan. the second and third time in Feb, which was when he said he would swap it for a different car. We are still waiting.

    Leaking toyota

    Do you think it would be worth contacting trading standards? Can understand why they do not want the car back, but we do not want it either.

    Shetland ponies in the garden?

    My friend had a sec a in her garden, but she was on the very edge of her village with no neighbours next to her. The council might object to having ponies in your garden, and your neighbours might complain about the smell/flies.

    Leaking toyota

    It was not a Toyota dealer, they were notified in early Jan about the leaks, had it back 3 times, then in Feb said he would swap it for a different one,but so far has not. He has had plenty of time to find another. Twice he has said will sort it, but we are still waiting

    Naughty on the lunge

    Our horses live out, but years ago when they were in at night in the winter, we were paying extra to YM to give them a feed, change their rugs, and turn them out, we were forever finding them still in the stables, when we arrived after work, breakfast still where we left it, usually with some...

    Naughty on the lunge

    Would the owner sell her to you? If the owner will not move the horse, i would walk away, this set up is going to cause an accident, either yourself or the poor over fresh horse.

    Does anyone have a Toyota rav?

    The Toyota Rav is going back to the dealers, it is the sunroof leaking, and the only way they can stop it is with tape. If the tape comes off we will be back to leaks, so he is getting us a different car.

    Newton Stud slurry death

    I think owners are entitled to know what happened, will be a warning to other owners, who may bethinking of sending their own horses there. This was avoidable with a secure fence around the slurry pit, and really can not believe some of the well known owners, breeders on their facebook page.

    Someone we knew bought a couple of ex racers for first horses, because they were pretty and spent quite a lot of time in a&e. If it is a first horse get a friendly, reliable older horse , who will teach you the ropes/
