    How do you measure what height horse/pony you need in a trap?

    I have just bought a 2 wheeled trap in need of cosmetic restoration, though basically sound, for very little money. It is sort of a dog/rally/pleasure type trap; takes two people on a bench type seat. As title, how do you measure what size horse/pony will fit the trap? I have a Fell 3 yo...

    Deerhounds and osteosarcoma

    Sadly my deerhound has just been diagnosed with osteosarcoma. It is something they are prone to, but you sort of don't think it will happen to you, do you? She is seven and a half and still fine in herself. Chest x-rays are clear. There is however, no "cure". The simple option is pallaitive...

    Mobile field shelters

    Hello. Does anyone have any recommendations for mobile field shelter suppliers in Lincolnshire, or anywhere else if they travel at no extra cost? Doesn't have to have any fancy "extras", plainer the better really, but does have to be sturdy due to big horses and strong winds. Many thanks.

    Amersham horses case and "pets"

    With regard to the favourite topic of Mr J Gray, can anyone explain the following to me? I admit I haven't seen any of the newspaper reports on the case and as far as I can see, the hearings haven't (yet) been reported on Lawtel, if indeed they are going to be, so I haven't seen the actual...

    Saddle theft Lincolnshire/Market Rasen

I feel sure it was targeted as we have had a couple of people come to the house with clipboards or parcels and the like asking for addresses which always makes me suspicious. I am in Lincolnshire, near Market Rasen...

    Liquid rubber matting

    Does anyone have any experience of liquid rubber matting as opposed to stable mats? Thought it might save all the hauling about that seems to be the downside to mats. Thanks.
