I have been to the feed shop today and looked at some sprays.
If I have remembered correctly NAF Deet and Carr Day and Martin Extra have 20% Deet w/w. ( whatever that means )
Phazer has 5.5ml per 100ml.
NAF is £18.90 for 750ml.
500ml CDM costs £14.98 and 500ml Phazer £16.50.
I have ordered...
I have used Biteback Neem with reasonable success for a couple of years.
I have just ordered this, a newish product.
I will try and remember to post how effective it is.
I used rubber matting with some shavings on non draining concrete. It stank. Underneath was rank. I couldn’t lift the mats and OH, who is the most helpful and obliging a non horsey person could be, eventually rebelled and refused to help move them and clean underneath.
I changed the bedding to...
My pony had 6 injections in his rump. He was also given sucralfate.
The first, which was done after scoping, cost £250. This was fine as he was still dozy.
The last 5 I took the pony to another vets.
The next 3, £170.
The last 2 were 1/2 doses and were cheaper.
The second and 5th injections were...
How frightening. I am glad you are all OK though.
I had a fright caused by a stallion too.
I rode with friends on an open hill. The other horses were geldings. The local hill stallion, we had no idea he was loose, decided to try to mount my mare. Fortunately one of the geldings was very good at...
I have a skip, rubber gloves, short handled plastic shovel and a stiff hearth brush in the horsebox.
My pony, so far, has happily whiddled into the skip shortly after loading to come home. Usually there is one poo per journey.
I will have had the ‘box for 4 years soon and I doubt it has been wet...
Rest day today, gardening instead.
Hacking tomorrow and a brief lesson on Saturday. Maybe we will manage a trot this week. Probably another longer hack on Sunday then on holiday on Monday, hopefully flight will be fine.
Finan will have a week or so off unless he begins to get plump in which case...
Some of you may know that Finan had ulcer treatment and 2 scopings. After the injections were finished I moved him to full livery. He had over 3 months off so exercise began slowly 12 weeks ago. 3 weeks ago we tried canter for the first time.
Today I took him home and rode round ‘our’ woods. We...
That explains a lot. My balance is not great, inner ear I guess as I am always travel sick. I have left side lower back pain from horse accident 20 years ago, doctors only prescribed painkillers, and my body spatial awareness is poor. It was only recently that I realised I had been...
My pony colicked 3 times. His other symptoms puzzled my vet. I had the pony scoped. He had grade 2 ulcers. After 4 injections he was scoped again. The ulcers were nearly healed so 2 more injections were given. The investigations and treatment took 5 months. He was restarted 2 months ago and all...
