    Mini Horse needs urgent operation...

    I have just seen this on West Country today. I too thought that the best option is surely to put the pony down. I felt so sorry for it watching it try and hobble around. :mad:

    Science versus Old Wives Tales?

    Impaction can be caused by a lack of water and dehydration. In order for things to move through the gut they need to be soft and contain a certain amount of water.

    Sympathies to the person who's horse died.

    RIP to the horse. Was awful to see, a very obviously broken back leg. Did wonder who it was as I wasn't paying attention at the time.

    Donkeys still looking for winter homes

    We had a beach donkey one winter! We just had the one and kept it with our 3 ponies! It was so cute! Dad used to bring it for walks when I hacked my pony out! Would follow quite happily but wouldn't go infront and couldn't be dragged anywhere but could be driven from behind!!

    Months trial

    Thanks guys. I did have doubts and have been umming and ahhing about it but thought maybe i was being unreasonable. But the fact that you guys have said you wouldn't let your horse out on trial or wouldn't ask for a trial if you were buying kinda suggests i'm not being unreasonable. Think i'll...

    Months trial

    They've been to try the horse, and i said they woud be welcome to come back again if they wanted to but they asked for a months trial. I said i wasn't sure so i am going to see where he will be kept first. A lot of people have asked me about "loan with view to buy" which i have said no to as i...

    Months trial

    Don't think he'd be used as a PC camp horse as i'm only selling him as a hacker as he's not done much over last few years and they're not a PC family. But it does worry me they'll just have a horse free for a month, or of course the horror stories of horses being out on loan and being sold on...

    Months trial

    Anything i should consider before letting my horse go for a months trial pre-sale? I'm guessing i'll have to give them the passport? I'll obviously photocopy it and keep copies myself. Should i ask for a deposit? Also if you were selling a horse would you let it go out on a months trial? Just a...

    Summer abroad working with horses?

    If you also like kids then i would recommend camp america or BUNAC. Working on a kids summer camp teaching kids to ride and horse care is so much fun! but also be prepared for hard work! Flights there and back were paid for with a wage which isn't great but is enough to do some traveling with after!

    Driving age!

    I think the idea of a log book and being signed off for competency is a good idea. For example someone could learn over the summer and may never have to drive at night or in the rain then suddenly they pass their test and have completely different conditions to drive in that they don't know how...

    Thanks for all your responses. He's 14. Like i said for over 2yrs he's had an easy life as i was doing a MSc and was very busy so he was a happy hacker and often only occaisional light hacking. He always seemed ok doing this, though my trimmer (he's barefoot) had noticed some uneven wear on the...

    My horse has been in very light work for a couple of years due to me studying. I have recently been bringing him back into work and doing more schooling with him. He has felt not quite right, espcially in the school so i decided to get him checked over by a physio. She says he has a low grade...

They just wouldn't listen to us as we tried to explain but there will nearly always be someone there as i work nights so am there all day and...
