    PE Fly rugs - also enormous?

    I know this is an older thread but did you get the PE in the end? I also struggle getting something to fit my WB both on the shoulders and his belly. He definitely needs a belly flap as he gets bitten to death on his bellyline also but most rugs with flaps are too short 😆 I bought a superlite...

    Rambo Optimo Fly Sheet

    Has anyone got one of these? I like the look of them and I am struggling to get a decent fly rug that isn't too tight on the shoulders! https://www.redpostequestrian.co.uk/horse-rugs/fly-sweet-itch-rugs/rambo-optimo-supreme-summer-sheet-fly-rug--navy-checknavywhite__193030

    Would you consider buying this horse?

    Put a wanted ad out? What area are you in, maybe someone on here has or knows of something suitable?

    Would you consider buying this horse?

    Tbh he doesn't sound right for you. You don't sound 100% committed and I think you should take a step back. I would write a checklist of what you want then see how many boxes he ticks. I also think the owner seemed a bit to concerned about if you would still buy him after your incident 🤔 I...

    Should I hit the panic button?

    I initially said Hermes as a joke but now I quite like it! Hermosa & Hermes..... it has a nice ring to it 🙂

    WWYD Yard - New housing estate going up...

    It's not my yard so i wouldn't know what conversations have taken place between the owner and developers. Unfortunately our Council was very keen to go ahead with this development so there wasn't much resistance there... At the end of the day i cannot control what happens as i dont own the farm...

    Your Horse Background

    I agree about horses liking certain people. Most horses like me, i dont know if it's because i am relaxed and sensitive to their needs or if there is something else but i definitely get a 'i like you ' vibe from them. My old instructor used to say i was a natural with them but i think it goes...

    WWYD Yard - New housing estate going up...

    Thanks for the replies. It's a farm and there is only 3 other people there so 4 in total including me. TBH i dont they will be that bothered, one lady has her horses on the other side of the farm so won't be near the houses and the other 2 dont seem worried. Sadly it's a very big developer and...

    WWYD Yard - New housing estate going up...

    I may be worried over nothing but thought i would try and get some input from people that might be in the same position! Quick background - i am on a yard that i really like. It pretty much ticks all the boxes and the horses are happy, plus it's 2 miles down the road so really handy. The issue...

    Progressive Earth Vitamin E Confusion?

    Aha! See i was being thick ;-) So if i want to feed 5,000UI per day the natural will last 30 days and the synthetic will last 25 days.

    Progressive Earth Vitamin E Confusion?

    So the below response is what i got when i asked why i would pay almost double the price for natural when i can feed the same amount in volume i.e 5 x 5ml scoops? 'It is a personal choice, some people prefer to use a natural product than a synthetic one.... .'

    Progressive Earth Vitamin E Confusion?

    I'm not really sure, i think i'm really thick and cant wort it out! lol. I did ask if feeding 5 x 5ml of synthetic was the same as feeding 5 x 5ml of natural and they said yes, and i was talking about UI rather than weight - so that's where my confusion comes from...

    Progressive Earth Vitamin E Confusion?

    Forage Plus is £37.98 for 0.5kg and PE is £30.99 for 0.5kg for natural Vit E Forage Plus is £18.99 for 0.5kg and PE is £16.99 for 0.5kg for synthetic Vit E Am i missing something? Is the FP better for some reason? As it isn't cheaper.

    Progressive Earth Vitamin E Confusion?

    Sorry for another Vitamin E question but i am a bit confused with some info from PE regarding the difference between synthetic and natural Vit E. Now i know that if you feed synthetic then you have to double up the dose due to bioavailability but on their web site they say that there is 2000 UI...

    Getting rid of horse smell from clothes...

    I have seen this question a few times recently. I wear the same leggings and jumper to the yard for pretty much the whole week and muck out 2 straw beds each day. I put them on a 20 min wash at the weekend and they smell clean and fresh!

    2 horse limit on livery yards

    Can you ride and lead? Then a quick lunge for the other. I wouldn't bother grooming the other 2 tbh, that should cut down time and should be easy attainable in 3 hours. It may not be ideal but it would be fine on the short term until restrictions are lifted.

    Feeding Extra In The Cold?

    Can you put a couple of batons on the top of the box so that he can still get his head in to eat but he wouldn't be able to pull the hay out? Or put the hay in a net and clip it on to the sides of the box.

    2 horse limit on livery yards

    I get that but do all 5 need to be ridden everyday? So if their full care is done by the yard can you not just go up in the evenings?

    2 horse limit on livery yards

    Are all 5 on full livery? I seem to recall that you are on full. And do they all need to be ridden every day? Can you not just go up in the evenings to do them?

    Equimins vitamin e

    This. I don't think they have set out to deliberately mis-sell this product ( at least i hope not ) but as soon as they were aware they should have either taken it off sale immediately or issued a statement and came clean. It seems to me they hoped nobody would notice and that just seems really...

    Equimins vitamin e

    I think this company have not done themselves any favours with how they have dealt with this. There seems to be no acknowledgement of the fact that they have mis-sold this product ( albeit 'unintentionally' in their eyes 🤔) and now apology to their customers! Thats what most bizarre to me. They...

    how heavy is tooo heavy to ride a horse?

    Gosh. I'm sorry but that is really unpleasant reading. She is too big for all of those horses imo and I am saying that as someone who is certainly not a size 10! Her whole way of riding is ' heavy ' and the jumping photos make me cringe and feel sorry for those poor horses. I think if you want...

    Is this what “fresh” means?

    I agree with this. The stallion pratting around would make me think thats the cause of Prince's somewhat exuberant behaviour. I certainly wouldn't be going down the feed route and looking for problems that are probably not there at this stage.. Well done for getting back on. I would put the...
