    premier equine rugs

    I just don't know what to do. I have always been anti fly rugs but my new horse is suffering with fly bites so think it would be best to get her one. I want the lightest weight one possible. I liked the look of the PE Superlite fly rug but can't find it anywhere in stock. Heard good...

    premier equine rugs

    Hi How generous are the premier equine rugs? My new horse is 6"3 bordering on 6"6. Tried a friends 6"3 Mark Todd fly rug on her tonight and not too bad length but no generous enough for her shoulders. What would you advise? Thanks :)

    Would you always be present at PPE's?

    As mentioned in another post I am having a horse 5 stage vetted this week. I cannot be present due to work and the fact she is about 140 miles away! :( I am worried about not being present but I have got a vet unassociated with the seller and they have promised to be in phone contact and...

    How many viewings before you found the one!

    Just wondered how many viewings are the average to find your horse? Also, if you found the one and it failed the vetting, did it put you off getting another vetted? I have looked at 3 and last weekend found a lovely horse who is getting 5 stage vetted this week. I never usually stress...

    Potential sharer for dressage horse

    Thanks for all of your advice. It makes total sense. I will no doubt have many more questions if this does seem like it's the way to go so I appreciate your help. I can't bear the thought of him going anywhere :( so seems like this could be the best situation :) should the worst happen.

    Potential sharer for dressage horse

    Thanks for your reply :) I wish you were nearer me too!!! My friend who rides my horse for me says she feels like Carl Hester when she rides him so Springsteen has some magical genes :) Maybe I should ask for a small contribution. I would definitley get a legal agreement drawn up...

    Potential sharer for dressage horse

    I have a query for all you CR Riders :) I am due to get back in the saddle again in a few weeks after another few months off (due to a arthritic condition I have) Because of the problems I have had before I am probably being pessimistic but it is likely that I will have the same problems...

    Horse advert?

    Worth paying. Looking at it from another point of view, all websites require hosting and running. This is not free, someone somewhere is moderating/running/hosting, paying for servers etc, so a one of sum of £5 is nothing and is what keeps sites like that running so I never begrudge a small...

    Advice on pasture management please

    Most yards are on limited turnout so wouldn't work at all. My horse has 2 seperate acres (one for summer and one for winter) I poo pick twice daily during the summer and once daily during the winter. Your grazing sounds perfect for that kind of set up. I agree with the other poster...

    Advice on pasture management please

    Firstly congrats on your new babies :D IMO a 9 acre field with 4 horses on it, I wouldn't have a problem with harrowing. Just get worm counts done regularly and routinely spring and autumn give them Red/Tapeworm wormers. The yearlings will do well to live in a 'herd' situation so if you...

    Liver problems. Any experiences?

    How Weird mrs Magoo!! Keeping my fingers crossed for you. It is so frustrating! We are now waiting for my friends mare to have her bloods on tuesday! It makes you wonder though how many horses out there have probably got high liver counts but you wouldn't think anything was wrong!

    Liver problems. Any experiences?

    Long story so I will try and summarise! :D My gelding started suffering from persisant scouring. Normal poos but scouring before and after poo. He was well in himself, no weight loss/condition/performance etc just scouring. I wasn't happy so had vets out for a blood test. It came back...

    Calm horse supplements do they work?

    From experience I would always go for a calmer with L Tryptophan in. Equine America so kalm, Top Spec Calmer are 2 I know of. My lad isn't on a calmer any more but when he was they both worked.

    Insurance and vetting

    NFU are great value for money but over £3000 (I think) you need a vetting :)

    Anyone used

    They are the best online/ebay seller IMO. Have used them many many times. 100% pleased with service/delivery. Their customer service is among the best I have ever dealt with :)

    Horse not quite sound-get the vet/farrier?

    I would get the farrier first asap. Sounds like it could be nail bind, this doesn't always show on the day of being shod but can happen within a few days. :)
