    Strangles Vaccine.

    We made the HUGE mistake of having our mare vaccinated when there was an outbreak on a yard next to our first choice of trainer.........took her over 6 months to 'recover' from them. She was very unwell immediately after the first and was obviously not right in herself - she was dull...

    Foster Mare scandal

    We were offered several foster mares from this sort of route last year when we had an orphan foal - one fellow even offered to ship a mare from Ireland for us.

    I never thought it would come to this :-(((

    Good idea about the driving - start with long reining from behind - I walked my boy miles doing that when I couldn't face getting on him. He got fit, got out, and I got exercise and spent time with him....win win if you ask me.

    She held on for exactly one year!

    Feeding - ideas wanted

    What about going with the Hi Fi Senior......it is not expensive and will give you more calories for the scoop. Or their Fibremix senior then you could do away with the leisure mix altogether.
