    Back out competing again finally!

    Bunny (Lambrigg Playgirl) is back in work (finally) and 2 weeks ago she went out jumping again at Barton. The clear round was rather sticky but she was back to her old self in the Novice coming a respectable 3rd. Yesterday we bit the bullet and jumped the Novice and Open. Due to a sat nav...

    Price of arena hire for jumping clinic

    How much is it usually? For arena with jumps? I'm being charged £300 for a day and £150 for four hours. The owners daughter is having two lessons too and last time I offered to do it for the price of a lesson without the arna hire on top but they haven't made me allowances, so should I just...

    Church Farm - my first homebred's BS debut!

    Kaos (One 2 One - so named as his dam had one ovary and his sire one testicle!) nearly didn't make it to his first birthday, he was born with a leg angled out at the knee and needed a perikneal strip operation to straighten it. His gelding went wrong and he was in the vets for 5 days while they...

    Vet is baffled....

    I took my horse on a hack, he was fine throughout, when he went back to field i let him loose and he trotted off - lame. No heat/swlling anything, just lame. Doesnt react to sole pressure and no worse with flexion. Anyone know of any expert lameness vets in or around lancs?

    Bob's first (and second!) outing Since his injury last September

    Well, Bob has come back into work nicely with only a few tantrums, mostly of the yee ha variety rather than the nappy &^$£* of last spring. As he'd been going so well at home, he went to Barton unaff, he hates the arena to put it mildly. He managed to go up the tunnel without a tantrum, just...

    Size diff between mare and stallion for covering

    How large a diff can you go, in either direction? I've heard no more than a hand bigger for a small mare, but how big a mare can a 15hh stallion cover, is it possible for them to cover a mare thats a hand (or more) bigger or do you need to AI?

    Help - Bob's rehabbed and working but...

    I'm terrified of the injury re-occuring. The bone chip has dissolved, the swelling is down but a bit of scarring which I'm assured is not going to interfere and the suspected suspensory branch injury seems fine. *He's jumped over wheelbarrows onto concrete, rodeo'd round the arena with me for...

    Jumping values from gradings (kwpn etc)

    2010: KWPN fokwaarde springen 130 93% 2010: Duitse fokwaarde springen 153 87% Why the diff in values for same horse? Also, if the progeny perf affects the values, surely a stallion could be great at passing his wonderful jumping genes on but never really show it unless the right mares...

    Bunny boings round Barton again for another Red frilly!

    This was Bunny's 4th outing and 2nd Novice class, it was also a trailblazers qualifier so it was rather busy. Collecting ring was a nightmare, far too many horses/ponies in there, nobody seemed to be stewarding it, several nappy ponies were causing havoc, so I warmed up on the flat and popped...

    Keeping colts entire

    for those of you who keep colts entire, what made you make that decision? I'm not talking about how they're kept etc, but conf/breeding, the 'x' factor, etc. just curious as on the other thread someone said they'd 2 colts left entire, the nicer one didn't turn out as stallion material or at...

    Bouncy Bunny Boings round Barton (1st comp report!)

    Hope the alliteration is ok, I'm not the best at it! Well, I've been asked to ride a pony for a friend, who hasn't done much jumping before. She's been twice before jumping mini cr and cr happily so yesterday it was time to brave the Novice class. Off we went into the cr and she seemed...

    Fed up with 'neglectant' livery on yard I stable on

    Ok I'm probably having a bit of a rant here but I am so mad. This lady often doesnt muck her horses out, just pushes the muck to one side and puts a bit of clean bedding in, i'm used to that, not that I think it's fair but at least they are fed and watered....but yesterday she turns up, clearly...
