    Age/Joint Supplement

    Hi I have two Italian Spinones, aged 9 and 1. I'm looking to put my older girl on a suitable age/joint diet now she's getting on a bit. They both feed from each others' bowls and are slow/picky eaters so it would be a bit of a nuisance to try and separate them in order to feed one a "senior"...

    I'm looking to get a fleece or show rug embroidered with the name of my pony/rider for a Christmas present, but the ones I've found on the Internet seem to be extortionate prices (around £80/£90!!!). Does anyone know anywhere reasonably priced that I can use? I'm wanting a rug made in a...

    Annual Jabs

    Hi, I was late getting my 3yo pony's booster jab this year and my vet said that they preferred not to give the booster and that ideally I needed to restart the course from scratch. They did say that if I didn't show then I could risk just giving the booster, but I do show. The vet said that...
