    TV Times for World SJ Champs

    I watched Eurosport last night and was trying to work out if the two presenters weren’t getting along - there seemed to be a few snide comments! Watched Lotty’s test again on YouTube this morning. It was brilliant!

    Our farmer spread muck on the fields some months ago and because we have had no rain since it is just sitting all over the field, which the horses are now having to graze. Unless you have rain forecast I would poo pick for now

    Spot the hose leak

    I’ve never known it this bad in the 11 years I’ve been at this yard. We strip graze so have a bit left (of dried up grass and weeds) for another week or so but the field that I shut off a few weeks ago hasn‘t grown at all. That field is supposed to be my autumn grazing 🙁. Last year we had...

    Spot the hose leak

    Oh for some rain for the fields. (The leak is only when the hose is turned on to fill up the field waters so we’re not wasting lots of water).

    Can you wear an air jacket only for hacking?

    Ground Anchors for field shelter

    I’ve thought about these (usually when the forecast for strong winds is that night) but after reading some posts on here do wonder if you’re more likely to lose the roof if the shelter is tethered down. One thing I do know is that at the moment there is no way I’d get any in the rock hard...

    My cat seems to be covered too. Must be the time of year 😕. I’ve treated her and comb her regularly and am getting loads off her. Her jabs are due at this time of year and I always seem to take her to the vets looking very scabby.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned as haven’t read all the replies but just wanted to say our youngster started napping when his saddle no longer fitted. Replaced the saddle and he stopped doing it (so it could be discomfort).

    Horse prices- ever going to fall?

    Looking at a local site, it seems that the horses are coming down a bit but people are still expecting crazy prices for ponies - whether they’re getting them is another matter. I suppose it is the season for selling ponies though.

    Horsey artists and pictures

    I was given a set of placemats by this artist! My daughter bought them at Olympia. We’re big fans of Amy Goodman - She has her workshop nearby and it’s always interesting seeing what horse sculptures she’s working on.

    Cushings - Grey area and Prascend

    It is interesting that you both say half a tablet. My 14.3 has just been tested and is just over the positive line and my vet has suggested trying him for a month to see if makes any difference. However, she has said to give him one tablet a day. I’m wondering whether to query it with her.

    What feed changes have you made due to the rising cost of feed/hay/haylage?

    Mole Valley cubes have gone up a lot too recently. They often have offers on them though so I buy a few bags then.
