    Two things i have learnt about Bassetts in 24hrs of owning one!

    Yes - selective hearing i missed off my list!! Now, what about the barking? He has a big bark for the size of him (as i'm aware they all do), but is it something that could be a problem? ie barking continually?? We had 1 session this afternoon (instigated by my cat at the catflap!) that stopped...

    Two things i have learnt about Bassetts in 24hrs of owning one!

    Firstly, they don't do short walks - a 5 min stroll round the block takes 15mins as they sniff EVERYTHING! Secondly - they are such busy dogs - Bob seems on a mission whatever he is doing! Have i got them right or is it just mine??

    Humphries and Swain saddle - bargain!

    Fantastic bargain! One of the horses i ride has one, it is extremly comfy and lightweight. The owner is now going to get another for his other horse, and they get a great bargain as they take the horses direct to the Walsall factory.

    Just to say thanks to all of you

    Its was sad to read of your loss - as it is to read of anybody losing their horse. Having the ability to help an animal when it needs us is the best thing about being an owner, even if having to pts is the kindest thing to do. We all do what is best for our furry friends, and you are no...

    Moulton College Northamptonshire and British Dressage!!

    I do agree with you - and students will not learn anything from a badly run show, but what i am saying is there has been a vast improvement in the running of the shows over the past few months. Moulton college has had a bad reputation for a long time due to the poor shows - and rightly deserved...
