    Outlander 2 l. hybrid

    I've had the diesel Outlander, it was manual, not sure if they did automatic ones. It was a really good towing car, and economical to run as well. Now I have a new PHEV, 2.4 which does about 20 to the gallon on local roads. Interested in reading Becc's post as I've contemplated putting a...

    Looking for a towing vehicle

    Another vote for the Mitsubishi Outlander. I'm on my second now and have the PHEV, (Not really a tow car as it can only tow 1,5 tonnes) but last one was a 64 plate diesel and it towed so easily, Ifor Williams 505 and a 16hh warmblood on board.

    What should I be worming my pony with at this time of year. I've had him a couple of months now, he went onto clean ground, and hasn't been wormed in I don't know how long as his previous owner said she only did it when they had worms and he didn't have any with her. TIA.

    Has anyone bought a house with land and then relationship with partner not worked out?

    Sorry to read about your partnership coming to an end. After nine years you ought to have built up quite a bit of equity in your property. Can you use some of it this to buy land, get registered with local land agents and see what comes for sale rather than rent?

    Nightmare day!!! (Warning, unpleasant pictures)

    Gosh what a nightmare. So sorry for your little horse. Aren't we lucky to have such specialist help for instances like these. I hope Tigger makes a good recovery.

    Would you buy this..??

    I'd pass on this one and look for a sound one, which you can probably find around the same price. Shame as he's a nice looking pony.

    Would this bother you?

    All that's in the ground are bones. Your horses memories stay with you. Don't dwell on it just look to the future in the very fortunate position of being financially secure.

    Pony Rides

    How do the pony party people get round this rule? Or do they make enough to make it worthwhile? Such a shame our countrys rules and regs and culture of sue sue sue will deprive so many kids of a sit up on a pony.

    Thanks for all comments. To clarify, rug appeared on horse yesterday. It strayed into our field as its own field fence is like a cobweb. We bought this field in october. We are renewing all round the boundary, but the fencer fell ill and was off work, hopefully returning next week. I...

    I can't explain what the owner is like as it would only be my opinion, but she does have a reputation locally. Last time I went to see her about her sheep being in with my ponies she wouldn't answer her door or telephone. I am disabled, have heart problems, and need crutches to be able to...

    Well he was like that when I left today, doubt very much if his situation will have improved by morning. I will remove it then if its still on. Am just so desperately sorry for him.

    This poor fellow was starving in his field so broke through into mine four weeks ago and has been gaining weight ever since. Because of his condition though, which is still very poor, there are people/organisations involved, but today I found him like this. Its heartbreaking. He was given to...

    literally don't know what to do... ideas please.

    I agree with ihatework, barbed wire, tight as can be, it will stop her. Rather a few scratches than onto a main road. Also cheap and easy to put onto existing posts.
