    Thoughts on a weird horse ‘thing’

    Yes agree, sounds like a neurological issue, worth a chat with a vet.

    Fat horses

    The frustrating thing is that "show condition" ie obese has been a problem in showing for decades that I can think of. As has been said above, the entrenched ideas and lack of action from judges and some breed societies speaks volumes.

    Ideas for building a basic yard from scratch

    If you are looking at containers, go for insulated ones, they are a lot better for storage, they don't get condensation in them.

    I can't believe this!

    You are paying for the trainer, so I would politely but firmly ignore the YM and concentrate on what you want to work on with the trainer.

    Your cancellable takes...

    I feed straw in certain situations. When I was still riding I would groom the bits of the horse that mattered when time was short.

    Dream breed(s) you've always wanted

    I would love a Saluki, I dont think we would be a suitable home though. I would like another Biscuit, another collie gsd cross like Sam, another GSD and a Parson Jack Russell. Then something like a Papillon, and a mini Jack Russell..various did say dream dog scenario didnt you ;)

    When do you considered a horse old ?

    I have a retired pony who until last year when she was 30 looked like a 20 year old, other than gradually going greyer round her face. She still moves well but last year didn't carry her condition all that well. At 31 I am wondering if this will be her last summer.

    Would you breed from this mare?

    No, for reasons posted above. Also she needs to consider the whole youngster upbringing weaning etc.

    Full Livery People - Do you see your horse daily?

    Oh hell @Ratface, that is awful, I hate that you are being bullied like this,I understand the politeness dilemma though. I think LadyGascoyne's suggestion is a possibility.

    Horse being left unchecked in stable

    Its a pity the yo is useless. I had someone come on to my yard who was like this, they refused to answer phone calls etc and I turfed, poor youngster that they had.
