Can anyone give me any advice on how to stop my dog smelling?
Hes a fox red labradoodle (3/4 lab), 4 year old neutered male.
He has a chunk or raw chicken in the morning, and complete raw dog food in the evening (natures menu).
Hes full of beans, not overweight at all (after a diet to...
I took him to the vets today, as I noticed a tiny lump which produced pus when I squeezed it. They weren't worried, and told me to bathe in salt water twice a day.
On the bright side he seems to getting back to his normal self, getting more bouncy and energetic 😀
Huntley was neutered almost 3 weeks ago, he is fine in himself, he's eating and drinking well.
My question is, he seems to have lost his spark? He used to bomb along, really athletically. I know he will be calmer, but he seems a bit well, dim?! He has also got a bit frightened of other dogs. He...
Huntley was castrated yesterday, I picked him up at 330 and he hasn't drunk anything since. I've syringed water into the side of his mouth so he has drunk, and he's wolfed some breakfast down this morning. Is this normal? Thanks
So, I don't have a horse. I do have a Albion saddle, which is less than 2 years old (I bought it new). I don't plan to have a horse for a while, and probably not unless I can afford one more comfortably ( last one went because it was too much pressure financially, and time wise).
I do have...
So, I as reading another thread on here, about filling your box when you are still within the notice period, and a few livery owners said about digging out the box when the livery has left.
I'm just curious, do people not clean their own box out when they leave? I've always removed all bedding...
We have a 2 yr old labradoodle. He is a really fabulous dog. Very handsome, well behaved, and amazing with my boys (6 and 9).
So, apart from an adolescent stage where he was a bit agressive with other dogs ( never biting, just growling), he's really great.
Unfortunately, we have...
As title really. I need to get a gel pad, as I'm suffering with my lower back, and hip. He's not naughty or big moving, although he is a bit bouncy. I showjump and hack, and may do lower level be next year.
Does anyone know the advantage of the gel in over the gel out?
So, a while ago, I posted a question, asking whether, if you get a schoolmaster, whether your results would magically improve, or maybe I was just rubbish, and can't ride for toffee, and could therefore ride a Grand Prix horse and still get 4 faults. I got a variety of answers, but then, my...
So, a friend has offered to lend me her clippers, but said that the blades on it are for a thicker coat ( has a hairy cob), so it might leave mine a bit stripey, as he has a finer coat. I'll be honest, I didn't know you could get different blades for different coats? Will it leave him stripey? Tia
I need to get a new numnah ( and maybe some ears), but can't decide on best colour for plain brown horse. Don't like bright colours, thinking grey, navy, burgundy? Anyone got any pics of their brown ponies please
So, I have got my new boy on loan, he's absolutely lovely, really sweet natured and uncomplicated. We went out and were 3rd in the .80 at Pyecombe at first show, got time faults in .90 at felbridge last weekend, but I am still getting used to him, only had him 16 days!
But, my question is, he...
So, hopefully I am getting a really lovely gelding on loan to showjump. He's a lovely chilled out boy, has jumped up to 1.20, and has been placed at hickstead, and she's happy for me to jump up to 1.15 with him( well, as I'm jumping .90/1m, I think we'll be ok with that-lol)
Anyway, I have...
So, have decided to rehome z, and have found what sounds like a lovely home as a nanny to stone foals, which she will be great at.
Have started looking, still haven't decided on free OTTB, or loan horse, leaning more towards loan horse, so can get back on competing.
So, question is, does...
So, some of you may have seen. Z fell off the ramp and hurt her stifle. The vet came this morning, and thinks that she has either fractured her patella, or torn her ligament badly.
Does anyone have any experience of horses having the tear in a ligament the, with a recovery.
My concerns are...
So, changed z's insurance last month, having never had to have a vet out to her. Showjumped on Saturday, then on Sunday she fell off the trailer ramp, slipped off sideways, and is lame, v sore. Vet wants to X-ray and scan, but insurance are saying they might not cover it as it is in the first...
So, feel a little ashamed, but I've decided to get some competition breeches with a little bit of diamanté on the back ( I jump BS, I feel I need to fit in-lol).
Can anyone recommend some that won't break the bank, that are not too blingy, just maybe a bit on the back pockets?
So, I was debating with someone, say I bought a new horse, spent e.g.10000 on a cracking horse with BS experience and potential, what if I was to still go out, and ride like a numpty and have a fence down!
My mare was cheap, because she was a bit of a wreck, and has come so far with me, but...
I was advised to feed cayenne pepper, I really thought she would not eat it, but she does. 1/2 teaspoon in each (relatively small) feed.
Apparently it's good for intestinal issues. No advice needed, just wondered if anyone has fed this?
So, it worked well, lots of trotting keeping up with my boys (5 and 8) on their bikes, except when they got tired at the end and I had to keep stopping and waiting for them.,
It's a good plan for getting them all exercised :)
