    Update on Huntley (neutered dog)

    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 😀

    After neutering?

    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

    To sell saddle or not?

    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...

    Cleaning box out when you change yards?

    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.

    To neuter, or not?

    Hi, 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). [/URL] 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...

    Answer to whether getting a schoolmaster helps.

    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...

    Borrowing clippers?

    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

    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...

    Anyone fed cayenne?

    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?
