    Omeprazole Injections Cost?

    You are looking at about £800 -£900 for a course of 4 injections given weekly, it seems to have better results than oral medication and is easier as doesn't need to be given on an empty stomach like alot of the oral stuff. Generally best given in the rump as lots react to them in the neck so...

This is because the blood test is testing for anti bodies so if the horses has been in contact or near an infected horse the result will likely be high, but each horse is an individual...

    Knowall novices

    I'm not really sure where in my response I'm grovelling? Just I don't particularly enjoy an atmosphere on a yard as I want to enjoy my horse. If I don't really like someone I'll still say good morning etc purely to be pleasant and not create an atmosphere for others.

    Saddle Fitting Opinions

    Sorry I can't really help with recommendations and as sbloom says each fitter will differ during to experiences and general human nature. Equally horses are all different what works for one won't necessarily work for another. Are you able to recommend any inhand/ ground work exercises @sbloom ?

    Definitely medium blades on a grey. I used to like clipping my hunters out with fine blades but wouldn't use them on a grey had a medium pair just for her. The fine takes it so close that it would be hard work getting a really good finish on a grey with them

    Looking for examples......

    The thing with vetting is its only what the vet finds on the day. Further up someone has said about navicular and kissing spines, did you have the bloods run that were taken at the vetting? X-rays can be added on but don't come as standard, the same with teeth.
