    What lorry would I need?

    I may be considering purchasing a lorry in the not too distant future. Or I might not, I don’t know, but I would like one.

    Joint Stuff

    There was a thread a few months back which I can’t find, where all you clever people were discussing MSM, chondroitin, glucosamine as supplements and were kind enough to put links/info of where you got your straight powdered forms from. Would anyone like to put those links/info again?! Looking...

    Your mission....should you choose to accept it...

    I’m usually pretty good at finding things, but I’m at a loss with these and am pleading to the shoppers of HHO! I have a pair of wellies that I adore. They are super comfy, great with my plantar fasciitis, warm, and have stood the rest of time! After 4.5 years of near constant daily use...

    Top chop zero for £5

    Hey, I asked in the local feed store for readigrass, plain with nothing added as is to feed to my rabbits. Was sold this, didn't think to check label as thought zero meant just grass.

    Fun thread! Who would you........

    .......share a yard with?! Going only by posts you have seen on here, if you had to choose your fellow liveries from HHO members, who would you choose?! The yard only has 6 stables, so ideally only space for 6, but it does have 20 acres, so perhaps scope for some grass liveries! This is purely...
