    "Is there an experienced equestrian looking for a loan horse over the winter initially, maybe longer. He's 15.1hh 9yrs old Green only just doing his canter work just now, absolutely not for a novice rider although safe for a competent person and not nasty at all! Has some quirks but these are...

    Do you take your horses out and about on your own?

    The lack of self-awareness is strong with this lot . . .

    'Flu case in Central Scotland

    There are two confirmed cases in Leicestershire that are reported as being newly arrived from Scotland. So its possible that its those that are being referred to. I wish they stated where in Scotland they were newly arrived from!

    What is this?????

    I thought I'd be clever and do a google reverse image search (you up load the image it looks for other versions of it) . . . Apparently its a marine invertebrate! It would appear that Mr Google doesn't know!

    Planning ahead re: bad weather

    I have winter tyres - but when the weather gets too bad for them (I live up a wee private lane) I have autosocks. They work almost as well as chains but are much easier to get on. If you think you might struggle to get about they are well worth the outlay.

    Another British Horse Society c**k-up

    For me the one big, HUGE red flag - is that they want to increase the number of people that can call for an EGM from 12 to 250+. 12 is an easily achieveable number. How many folk know 249 other members? The only reasonable reason I can see for this would be if this had been getting abused by the...

    "Putting the feelers out there I’m thinking about selling my youngster but not 100% sure just seeing if there’s anyone out there looking for a nice calm project must be able to collect from Derbyshire as I have no transport" I think anyone looking for a nice calm project might need a bit...

    How did you and hello

    Helllooooeeeee :D I'm usually FrecklesTheCat - rather unimaginatively named after one of my feline trio. My present username merely explains what happens to any baubles that are too low on the tree! At least they don't tend to climb the tree anymore - when the youngest was a kitten she climbed...

    Riding after hip replacement.

    Thanks Guys, Op was 20th, was out on the 23rd. Seems to have gone well. :) Christmas was a bit weird - My kids chose to go through to Granny and Grampa while I was in - and there through until yesterday - it was a bit strange waking without them on Christmas Day. We headed through to them all...

    Christmas Funnies

    This morning we were innocently opening our presents. One present, then the next present, then the next present, round the circle of family in an orderly fashion (disorderly comes later in our house ;)) My daughter got a toy stable, with horse and tack, which she was really happy with. So...

    Scary riding school story (long post)

    Ah Memories of the day we got to go out on a On Road Hack - Somehow I was riding the ArabxTB cross I was never any good at getting her brakes to work - We ended up cantering up a hill towards a blind bend! So glad there were fewer cars back then (I'll swear the cars were slower too!). Twigs was...

    Can't get lorry back

    Red-Nose, I read it as the person doing the conversion and the garage owner being different people. The OP has fully paid the person doing the conversion - but the person doing the conversion owes money to the garage owner. The garage owner then wants to hold the vehicle as security for the...

    Anyone else seen the video on FB of two ridden cobs on the back of a moving flat bed trailer? WTF? The guy that posted it has come on and said "They're for sale". Seriously does that excuse something so stupid? He's just followed it up, when asked why, with "It's good to be original!"

    Sad, and angry. Non-horsey post

    When I was a child we took in a zebra finch my Mum caught in the back garden, a stray cat and an abandoned rabbit! We also had a feral cat that used to come for his tea, would occasionally sit in the living room and would never let anyone near him! I've never had any stray or abandoned animals...

    Riding after hip replacement.

    Obviously I'll be guided my my physiotherapist and consultant but . . . For those who have had a hip replacement: How long did it take to get back into the saddle? What do you think helped or hindered your recovery? Mine is getting done next month and I'm presently nervous - but looking...
