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.
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?
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...
Thank you :)
Good luck for tonight! Hope all goes well :)
It is traumatic searching lol :D
I have travelled 100's of miles just for 3! It was impossible to find something local!
Spent half my horsey budget on diesel! LOL
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...
Please If anyone fancies helping me do a bit of horsey shopping I would appreciate any help as I am struggling to find something :)
I have a back/neck problem so need to find something safe (not worried if forward/fizzy) but that will not throw me about in the saddle so no...
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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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!
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...
