    Very sorry for your losses, especially your lovely old boy who I remember well from Melton camp xx lots of lovely suggestions but surprised no one has suggested getting a cob yet, I have one after injury made riding more energetic horses difficult and she is so very far removed from my TB x...

    Is there a way to 'manage' rubber mats to minimise them getting icky underneath?

    What mats do you have? I have green Equimats, 20mm and 28mm and don't notice any smell and when I've lifted them they aren't grim underneath? I use aquamax bedding on the top, not very thick this time of year and my muck heap is ace, the well rotted stuff (4 years plus) is better than shop...

So has...

    Spillers gro and win

    I used it with both home breds, IRC it has higher protein in it for growth etc than normal balancer so where it wouldn't do any harm to feed it after 2 you are effectively spending money on something the feed companies don't think you need at this point. Spillers helpline is very good, give them...

    FBHS list - a select bunch

    You must have been at uni at the same time as me, 2003-2006? Sam is great, have had a few private lessons with her as well as having her as a lecturer at uni πŸ˜ƒ. One person on that list I've seen wrapping horses with poles, awful awful woman (not Sam obviously)
