    Update ' Suggestions please' mare lameness.

    Not good news, saw specialist equine vet this morning, she reckons the hock was virtually dislocated when she slipped, the damage is irrepairable and she will have to be retired from ridden work. So, to say we are gutted wouldbe understatement although we had our suspicions this would be the...

    Does your horse mean more to you than your children...

    I love my horse soooooooooooo much, she doesn't answer back, she does as she is told, she doesn't shout or scream. It's a close call between horse and children... Horse definitely wins, and if she does start to get on my nerves... I can sell her and get a new one, is there a market for children...

    Charities, are they or aren't they..

    How do you know if a charity is? Does it have to be registered with the Charity Commission as I don't seem to be able to find it on their search. Does it have to have the charity number on the website?

    Flaming busybodies!!

    Fuming or what!! RSPCA visited, someone had reported our sheep (these are pedigree ewes and lambs, home after being sheared yesterday) were on the bank (1 acre of long grass) panting with no water. So, for starters some busy body has been up around our shed, where they had no right to be, it was...

    Is Cornwall really too far?

    I have had our boy advertised, nice little comp horse, ads in H&H, HQ & HD on and off for the past 2 months. Initially get lots of interest but as soon as you say where you are everything goes dead. A friend is also in the same boat. Both horses are realistically priced (IMO), ads read well with...

    Height Certificates

    I had our roan pony measured she was well under 14.2 so no probs but our boy (black in sig) measures 155 with shoes, how much can you reasonably expect to reduce the height to without excessive foot paring, dehydration etc. He is a very smart little horse who would make a fantastic worker but...

    Hatherleigh BE90 Report

    After our boy's decision that he doesn't like xc my daughter has stopped eventing him and was really missing it.

    Small competition horses

    Where is the best place to advertise small comp. horses? We tried Horsequest in the spring with little interest. He measures 155 with shoes, has bsja winnings and BD points and has been placed at BE although he isn't consistant xc. Not sure what he would be for workers as he may measure 153 but...

    I love you Dubarry!

    After years of being unable to get my hugely large calves into a pair, they have introduced Xtra fit sizing, and they even fit my little fat legs!! So yes, I will now look like everybody else and will no longer be walking courses in proper farmer wellies (can't get hunters on) or my walking...
