    Those who have had youngsters.

    Did they grow up to be the horse you wanted? I got LC as a 3 year old so pretty much knew what size and shape he was going to be (round..and round), obviously the fact he is clinically insane and the maddest cob I've ever met was a suprise but by the time he was backed I trusted him enough to...

So was happy with it, BUT went to the feed place and they only had grass pellets in this...

    Anyone feed alfalfa pellets?

    I've bought a bag to start the Cob boys on..mainly to save money, maintain their weight which is about what I would like, and because Little Cob cannot have anything which has sugar in it seems a easy feed that will suit both of them. So questions are if you do feed it have you found it good...

    Anyone got a DreamTeam treeless saddle?

    A fellow livery said they have one to sell which she is going to let me try. I've ridden treeless for many years but don't know much about these one's so wanted some first hand opinions. She's letting me try it on trail but would be interested to what people think. Thanks :D

    Thank you peeps.

    I asked the other day about keeping a horse in a stable, as I've always had field kept heavy boys being forced to bring one of my cobs in for the evenings threw me as I wasn't sure the best way to have a stable! Anyway long story short I was advised to invest in stable mats and have shaving...

    You can't put a price on some horses!

    Today I had to move my horse back to my old yard. I'd moved him on saturday to a private yard but unfortunately the other 3 horses just didn't like him and he's spent the last 3 days being traumatised and we honestly couldn't see it getting better, the mare was even attacking him over the stable...

    Huge sigh of relief.

    Just so people know there are good places out there! I've just been up to the place where I'm moving to at the weekend to chat things over with the owner.

He's moving to a new home next week and will only be hacked out during weekends in the winter and more hacking when we have light nights. It's mostly lanes with...

    Horsey people are slightly strange.

    Last night arrived at the yard as usual. My lad was inside his stable eating his afternoon hay allowance. He shouted hello, I said hello back. I said hello to the other liveries around, had a chat. Went over to his stable, went inside, checked his water, checked he had hay, then stopped...

    Grass Pellets?

    Someone at my yard has suggested I try using grass pellets for my cob. He's a good doer but suffered some stomach problems 2 years ago so now is prone to scouring. I'll admit it's not something I've heard of using before and don't really know how you are to use them so would be interested in...

    Winter blues!!!

    I sadly have to work all day so have no choice but to ride in the dreaded indoor school. Yes I know I'm very lucky to have access to it but it still is dirty, dark and boring as hell!! I'm a 100% hacker girlie and I find any form of schooling a chore. I love jumping but the school isn't set up...
