    Impaction colic

    Any experience of it and how to mange it I have had another day of it with Arabi, he had similar symptoms about 2 years ago we checked everything then worms, infection nothing to give reason for it. I have found he has quite a noisy overactive gut compared to my other horse but he has a good...

    Cushings question

    I had Louis tested last week as his coat was a bit weird this year and his result was 20, vet said 15 is the normal range and that his in a grey area. They have recommended he has the stim test to give a more accurate result before they treat. What I'm asking is is it really necessary to have...

    Dressage girth

    I am being really dim I think 🤔 I can't work out what size dressage girth I need, he currently wears a 54 long girth but it is a bit long as in it almost does up to the top of the straps. I use flexigirths and I emailed them and he said a 28 or 30 inch does that sound about right I really have...

    Snuggy hood people help

    Last year I tried a headless turnout hood on Louis and it constantly slipped down his neck and I did it up quite tight, his quite narrow through the throat neck area so that may have been the issue but I'm thinking should I try a size down. I bought a M/L as his 15.3 but his neck is not wide at...

    Mud mats

    I have a gateway into my small field that gets really muddy and it's the gateway I use to get out onto the bridleway, it's only a very small bit that gets really bad so I wouldn't need loads. Only thing is there is concrete up to the edge of the field so would need to put them up to that edge...

    Acoustic Ears

    Been using them for a while now but twice last week my horse shook his head and the bridle came off luckily both times I wasn't on him but it's now made me wary, they really seem to help him concentrate and not hear all the farm machinery but it's worrying me.

    Soggy sore heals

    One of my Arab's pulls his shoes off in the field so he wears over reach boots, I bought some neoprene ones as everything rubs him and they were fine but I think where they get wet and sit on his heals its making them sore and soft and one has split. I gave it a good wash and put some iodine on...
