    Loan fallen through again....And I still live in a different country.

    Spotted - my thoughts exactly. I do not want to be liable. With regards to the contract, I think depending on what Duckling (my friend, excellent rider, Alice loves her!) says, I may try Project Horses, and then just chuck her out for a while. Then, once I have the silly money to ship her, I...

    Loan fallen through again....And I still live in a different country.

    Yeah, the upkeep is too much...! Do want a vet out though, you are right Kate.

    Loan fallen through again....And I still live in a different country.

    She is an easy keeper, so a companion may work. E-mailing yard owner, who is going to advertise for a younger loaner, with experience etc. I love her dearly but she is a royal pain, and eugh!

    Loan fallen through again....And I still live in a different country.

    Nail on the head there Bumpy Ride - I keep thinking maybe I should go over there, but, I just don't think there is any point as I know she will be fine with me. Yeah, she just has it in her head that she can get away with it. I know horse's really don't distinguish that much between people...

    Loan fallen through again....And I still live in a different country.

    Idlp111 - I totally believe that she is doing this, the woman is a novice, with a family and it is not worth her risk, so I totally understand. She has been being ridden by different people for about 4 years, and has reared from time to time with all. Carys - yes, you are right. I am not...

    Loan fallen through again....And I still live in a different country.

    I have had her since she was 3/4 - so 7 years. Ha, its like a jealous pony relationship! I don't know, maybe my mother has a point, and she should just be put down. She has done it with at least 5 people, some very experienced, others novicey.

    Loan fallen through again....And I still live in a different country.

    My mother and I just spoke, and she is worried about the liability she would face on insurance. She is thinking possibly approaching a vet and saying she is unsafe to ride. So LOU and put down. Yes, she does like me only. Never, ever tried it with me, and never felt unsafe. I have had several...

    Loan fallen through again....And I still live in a different country.

    Well, the beast has done it again. If you don't know the deal, I moved to the States and left the pony in the UK. Bad idea, but she is unsellable due to having had spavin. Anyway, found a novicey person, who loved her dearly. But...she is now randomly rearing. I have had back/teeth/vet out, and...

    What is the strangest thing you have found in your field?

    Only just checked back onto the forum! Damn! I found a Bearded Dragon - its a lizard native to Australia. They are very spikey, and scary looking, but I knew what it was as my parent's had them. So, I got a new expensive lizard. I guess someone had abandoned it, or Sussex was becoming...

    Your favourite fictional horses

    Haha, I have King of the Wind - good read. My ultimate favorite is the Black Stallion - I have, and have read the entire collection, and love the movie. Who could turn down a cantankerous, but stunningly handsome horse? Really is my favorite, closely followed by Black Beauty - but can't deal...

    Stables fire

    I just saw this - scum. Regardless of if it was a 'mistake' and the flames spread. What horrible people, and I really feel for the poor owner.

    THE 2 TREADS GOT OUT OF HAND SORRY PPL

    Yay, caps off! You certainly made an entrance, but this is generally a nice forum to be on, just try not to cause humungous fights, it provides entertainment, but probably isn't that great for your health! I too am going to bed, but I am 5 hours behind y'all!

    chavvy I know but....anyone got a katie price horse stuff?

    Do you think anyone is going to admit to it? I remember a thread posted a couple of months ago that said things come up small - possibly Weezy has a child who got clothes? Memory may be wrong though. I think the longer styled tops don't fit as they look like they should!

    People who don't like dogs off the lead...

    And that is why I should never have dogs - I am not up on dog etiquette. I would have thought it more likely that badness would happen if unleashed? I don't know, I just feel that if they are going to get along, they would do so on a leash? I mean, not right up on heel, but at least then if...

    People who don't like dogs off the lead...

    I think (as other people have stated) that people can't just assume that the other person's dog is friendly. If a dog came bounding up to mine, regardless of how friendly it looked, I would not be happy and neither would my dog. Then, if that dog went and attacked (whilst having that friendly...

    Potential new horses... tell me what you think (and small grrr)

    I personally like Fornema's 4 y/o. Think no 2's neck is set strangely, and also doesn't have the most 'attractive' demeanor! Sorry... I know you don't want a 4 y/o, but he is dashing!

    I can't laugh? Well this is going to be no fun. Actually, she is a little scary...if I was doing it for someone I knew better it would be much easier (not that she isn't lovely, just daunting!) *will not become fascinated by lovely paces* will not become fascinated by love paces* thanks, I...

    Calling Dressage Tests - Help - Also in CR

    Yes, I will probably lose my place - am waiting for that! Will try to watch a few before....we will see! Its the YO on a nice Trakhener baby that she got from Holland. He is rather swanky, but if I piss it up, I think I will get shouted at. Nothing like a bit of pressure! I am secretly hoping...

    Thanks for the comments, yes, I think it would have been better if it had been sprung on me. I will have to do it tonight and walk it through in my head so I know what it should look like! Llewelyn - PMSL! I hope I don't do that, or keep going when her baby is having a little hissy fit at...

    'Pante Mayer' Anyone?

    She doesn't know the test...I have a feeling this is not going to be good. Bugger, maybe I can get out of it! Was hoping to run through it today, but she didn't have the test with her.
