I do agree. Our farm vet has clean overalls and disinfects himself pre, during and post covid.
However, this post was specifically about equine consultations.. I think if the farm vets said to farmers, OK, we can PD your cows/treat your sheep/operate on your pig, but you’re not allowed to be...
Having worked in vet practice for 10+ years previous, I have to agree that there’s no reason why vets shouldn’t be seeing clients as per normal. If they insist on wearing a mask to walk into reception/collect drugs, I’d be ok with that. However, all clinical workups, visits etc should be treated...
Ive recently started my Welsh on Protexin Acid Ease for some gut lining support. He’s probably been on it for about a week now - just on a maintenance dose.
I’ve gone out to him this afternoon, and he seems very itchy!
Am I right in thinking this could be the Alfalfa in the Acid Ease...
I’m going to the Charlotte Dujardin Masterclass at Myerscough on Saturday and then Xmas fun planned for Sunday. A non horsey weekend for me! Apart from trampling through the mud to turn them out and bring in 🤣
Are there any ‘avid’ eBay users on here?
I’m selling brand new horsey items on there at the moment, all at very reasonably prices and open to offers with fast postage etc.
I’ve had so many people make an offer, I’ve accepted or they’ve won the auction but then they just don’t pay. I then go...
Yes everything you have said is very relatable. The more I’m around my own, the better it tends to be. I do have asthma and hay fever too. I’m on very strong antihistamines that only just touch the allergy symptoms!
I just absolutely hate the constant sneezing and itchy eyes!! 😂
Interested to know if anybody ‘does’ anything with their companion Shetlands?
I bought mine recently to keep my Section D company, he’s only young therefore not suitable to be backed just yet, or do anything too strenuous.
I just wondered if anybody ever takes theirs into the arena to do some...
Strange question, ha!
Where do you carry your phone when riding? In particular on a hack/in the summer.
I don’t like riding tights or leggings so the down the leg, deep pocket isn’t an option.
It’s too big to stick down by bra! I’m thinking a running belt around the waist could be a good option...
My horse also does exactly this. Again, isn’t seasonal at all - never does it as soon as I get on but will do it twenty minutes or so into a session whether that is hacking or schooling.
I’ve got him in a Micklem, but question whether this is making any difference.
My friend who is a...
A quick question for all those that are on board bright and early.. what do you do when it comes to feeding your horse?
Does your horse have a hay net over night, which lasts until morning?
Do you delay riding and feed some forage in the morning before getting on?
I’m thinking my only option to keep mine going this Winter is to box up, park up and hack in a quieter area.
Our road is getting increasingly busier and with a fairly nervous Section D, I’m wondering whether not to even risk hacking down our roads and boxing up to go somewhere different...
Who does it and what are the pros and cons? What does your typical day look like and what industry are you in?
Iâ€™m currently in a high pressured job as a manager in a mixed vet practice but am thinking of a change to include more flexibility due to various reasons.
Would love to hear...
After some advise..
I currently just have the one Section D pony. Heâ€™s kept at home with me, we live on a large herd dairy farm. Iâ€™m thinking of getting another horse, as although he is very settled on his own I think it would be nice for him to have some company.
How much time...
