    Underweight rising 2 year old?

    Thanks for your replies. That's interesting regarding the mix. I thought that since the d&h mare and young stock mix was specifically designed for native or part-bred animals that it wod be suitable for her- is this not the case? What alternative feed would you recommend?

    Underweight rising 2 year old?

    Thank you for all your replies, I appreciate them. I normally would have ignored the original comment I was given but it came from someone I really respect and who has had far more youngsters than I have. I'm just glad that I am seeing the same horse as others on here are 😊.

    How Are Your 2012 Foals Looking?

    Here's some pictures of my little filly- she's a welsh D. I'm hoping she'll make at least 14.2hh - at the moment she's about 13hh at the withers and 13.2hh at the bum. At 1 week old and now at 11 months old Some days she looks in proportion and others I just look at her and think...

    Underweight rising 2 year old?

    Thank you for your replies- I'm glad that you are seeing her the way I do. Yes you can easily feel her ribs and depending on how she is standing you can see a few of them but I'd rather that than have her fat :)

    Underweight rising 2 year old?

    This is my rising 2yo filly, Welsh D. She has 2 feeds a day, using d&h mare and youngstock mix as well as supplements. She lives out and her field has good grass, but I do put down some hay in the evening. I personally think she is OK- yes she could have slightly more condition but I don't...

    Your Horse Ghost Stories.

    Not my story but a friend of mine has had a few ghostly encounters/experiences. Once she was away from home when one of her horses became very ill, she had told her husband to call the vet to put the mare down. Not long after putting the phone down she heard a horse neigh, quietly but...

    Worry worry worry with horses

    I'm exactly the same- the other night I was seriously questioning why I have them because I work myself up so much. I'm generally a very laid back kind of person who doesn't worry about anything EXCEPT for the animals. I give the horses their 'final check' about 10pm but I then imagine loads of...

    well they've started already.......

    Thanks for that- this is what I was hoping/thinking myself but it's good that someone else thinks it could work out this way :o

    well they've started already.......

    My horses are right next to a cricket ground that always has fireworks :(. My little mare is totally used to them after 7 years but this is the first year I've had a weanling and yearling so I'm really worried :( The field is also right next to the motorway which is constantly full of loud...

    Chestnut mares?

    I've got a 15 month old section D who's chestnut with 4 whites! But so far she has been a total gem, no faces or anything- she is the most placid yearling I've seen. Whether she changes as she gets older remains to be seen but her mum and grandmother are chestnut with 4 whites (from what I can...

    Anyone else getting foals soon

    Ah right I thought I recognised him but wasn't sure, I've got the stud on facebook. Mine is by Terackie Winter Shadow out of Terackie Madam Xantia (Nebo Daniel).

    He looks nice :) how's he bred? This is my girly who's coming in 2 weeks :) she's a section D

    My 15 month old section D filly is now standing around 13.2/3hh, her breeder think she will make 14.3hh. But everyone who's seen her comments what a big filly she is and I'm starting to wonder now whether she will get a bit bigger. Her parents are both 14.3hh but her grandfather was around...

    What is it really like in Carmarthenshire?

    The good news is that it's not as bad as you've heard but the bad news is that it's probably even worse! Seriously there is a lot of rain- but when it's nice it is so beautiful. It isn't bad living in Carms being English- it gets a whole lot worse the further into mid-Wales you get. There are...

    A concerning relaxed attitude to fat ponies...

    This unfortunately is the norm for Welshies and it horrifies/upsets me each time I see it happening. A friend of mine took their 2yo D filly into a class- needless to say she was the only one who looked her age as the rest looked like adult cobs. Not only was she put at the bottom of the line...

    Vetting and insurance

    The value of the horse will affect whether a vetting has to be done but under that price it's up to you. Different insurance companies will probably have different prices at which they require vettings to be done- KBIS is £5000 for example. The vetting doesn't alter your premiums it is just for...

    Rug Enquiry - Welsh D

    Ditto Weatherbeeta and Premier Equine, they're a good fit for those that are wide and chunky.

    Best insurance company for a yearling?

    Thanks everyone I've decided to go with KBIS having heard so many good things about them :)

    Best insurance company for a yearling?

    Hi I was just wondering whether anyone could recommend any insurance company for my new yearling filly. The main thing I would like cover for is colic surgery. At the moment I'm thinking that KBIS would be the best, anyone have any experience good or otherwise with them covering a youngster...

    companion dilemma

    The only thing I would say is that be aware that not all horses take too kindly to shetlands...I know quite a few horses who have been introduced to shetlands and simply couldn't cope with the pressure or get their head around the concept of a tiny horse :rolleyes: Just a thought for you if your...

    Welsh Cob stud recommendations?

    Ditto all of the above- I really can't rate them highly enough, and they are very genuine kind people to deal with. They don't breed many foals per year, next year they're expecting 9 foals, but the cobs they breed in my opinion are something very special.

    Welsh Cob stud recommendations?

    I would definitely recommend Derwen Stud for fantastic quality cobs with great temperaments. Ifor and Myfanwy are also so lovely to deal with and can help you choose a cob that's just right for you. Some other studs tend to breed cobs that have 'fiery' temperaments and aren't particularly good...

    Can anyone recommend a good animal portrait artist?

    Thanks everyone for all your suggestions so far, I'm going to spend today looking up all of these artists. I'm going to the Royal Welsh in 2 weeks so hopefully I'll be able to see some artists there- I hadn't thought about that so thanks! Legaldancer I'll pm you :) I just wanted to add that in...

    Can anyone recommend a good animal portrait artist?

    I'm already thinking ahead to my dad's big birthday in November and I'd love to get him something really special. His 15yo dog is the apple of his eye so I was thinking it would be really nice to have a portrait done of her- BUT I've spent hours searching all over the internet looking at loads...

    Anyone else been bitten by a horse fly?

    I got bitten by one last year and had a similar reaction- the whole area was very swollen and hot. I just bought some antihistamine tablets, cleared it up within a few days.

    Looking for a Pinto Arabian in the UK

    These are who I was going to suggest too. I've just bought a palomino cob from them and they are brilliant. I've also seen their pintabians and they really are something else. Would highly recommend them!

    Docks have survived Doxstar :( Now what?

    Headland Polo worked wonders for the dock in my field. They began to die within a few hours and were dead by the next morning.

    Traditional Welsh Section D's?

    A lot of judges do still like the old fashioned type, although it also depends what you consider to be old fashioned. I would say that last years RW winner Abergavenny Morning Queen was very old type with a big and more coarse head. The main thing is that she really moved, as long as they can...
