    Cutting down on numbers is SO HARD

    I totally get where you are coming from. We have 7 now, i keep looking and thinking someone has to go. But find reasons for them all to stay. So i will join you in the crazy horse lady group. I dont think we should limit numbers to the group as i have a feeling theres a lot of us about.

    The vet thought the same about Rustle , he was slightly tight behind ( contracted tendon ) A couple of days later he was fine . A lot of the time they do sort themselves out. if not the farrier can help sort them out . Try not to worry too much . Easier said than done I know 😊

    it’s just the beginning isn’t it ! Getting them to 4yo sane ,alive and sound isn’t exactly easy 🤣🤣 Fortunately Aria seems a lot more herself today . Her udder looks a lot smaller . Phew 😊

    Amber looks very content, hes super. Just love how chunky he is. Well, we have had stressful afternoon . I noticed Aria wasn’t herself . Kicking her tummy , not letting Rustle drink . She progressively got worse . Was really worried about colic or mastitis as her udder was enlarged and milk...

    Ahhh !! congratulations . What a clever girl Amber is .. hiding everything from you all 🤣🤣🤣. At least he’s looking for the milk and he’s up and about . Hope you get to see him latch on soon . The first few hours are usually the most stressful, so will keep everything crossed for you and wait...

    Is there a way to 'manage' rubber mats to minimise them getting icky underneath?

    Good grief Catembi, what is wrong with this women . She really does seem to have some sort of vendetta against you. I would 100% do what GS suggests. you need to hit back now.

    Novice Breeder Looking for Tips

    You need to change repro vets . Sharpish . Not only did they fail to scan the day after insemination. The fees are ridiculous. You could send her to Twemlows for less . You should not be paying that sort of money

    It wont be another £1000, just the cost of the insemination package . Fingers crossed for a miracle blob :)

    Which bedding would your horse choose?

    Every animal we’ve had prefers the straw/hay You never see Bob asleep like this I’m the shavings 🤣

    Which bedding would your horse choose?

    Im pretty sure given the choice all of ours would prefer straw. I watched Finn when we tried him on straw and he definitely lay down more on a straw bed than he does on a shavings one. we only use straw when bedding down for foaling and switch back to shavings as soon as we can. As MP mentions...

    To sell or not to sell

    Its quite normal for nice people to feel guilty about selling horses. But it does sound the right thing for him. You may find a sense of relief when youve found the right home for him

    What should I do with my horse?

    From a financial perspective id say sell. However, if you want to keep the horse for when you finish your education, then find someone local to loan and stipulate where the horse is to be kept so you can keep an eye on him/her.

    you’ve hit the perfect milestone now . Won’t be long . I’m sure I read somewhere that mares don’t carry as long when they have them this time of year . Could be wrong ! Mine have all been early in the year and made me wait 🤣🤣

    2022 Foals

    its really hard with maidens as they write their own rule book. But, id say the thing that has to happen is the back end slackening off. So really watch our for her turning wobbly around each side of the tail head. It really goes wobbly like jelly. My mares all really start to rub their bums...
