    When would you call it a day?

    She's had a lot going on the past 4.5yrs. When you start thinking about quality of life then it's time. I appreciate that it's hard as she's just 12, I know how difficult it is having made that decision for my beautiful homebred 12yo recently.

    What do you feed your poor doers / your thoroughbreds?

    I had an old ex chaser to care for, he loved soaked barley rings.

    First pony? How old were your kids?

    My son was 4. He asked to ride then, wanted a grey pony like mine. I managed to find a rare tiny 11.1hh NF!

    Events running today in the heat!

    I am pretty much heat intolerant. I got heatstroke when I was 9 on sports day. Blinding headache, shivering and throwing up. As I'm entering a period of my life when heat becomes more of an issue, the temperatures we are experiencing now I find difficult to do much in without feeling ill...

    Your horse live - other things to do near by

    Warwick Castle is a must. Stratford upon Avon has plenty going on and has nice variety of pubs/restaurants and theatre.

    The ordinary horse owner Olympics

    One of mine used to do that too.😅 Straightening bent electric fence posts. How many can you do in 2 minutes?

    So, if not riding due to heat, what are you doing?

    I have been into the cupboard of doom and shed. Spent over 3hrs pricing up and sorting out all my stuff ready for a tack sale next week. How does one collect soooo much stuff?

    Is it just me counting the days & hours till this heatwave is supposed to end??

    I'm not a lover of heat at all. Had hoped to take a pony to show today. Not a chance in this heat, nor will I be going to look round. Shame for the organisers as it the first show since 2018. Weather and covid have put a halt to the last 3 years. The ground is rock hard, the grass crunches...

    Passport help.

    I know the NF have their chip numbers recorded on their passport. How old is the pony?

    Passport help.

    Is it a breed society who issued the passport? Was the chip registered with a company? For now I'd get a passport pdq and see if you can get the vaccinations details entered from the previous vets. If not then you'll have to start a new course and hope that 2 vaccinations on the new pasport...

    The ordinary horse owner Olympics

    Roll up 100m of electric fencing tape using hand/elbow method, then reattach it to the posts, fastest time wins. Points deducted for swearing and cutting the tape! 😆 Variations include windy conditions and length of tape. We could have the 100, 200 and 400m sprints.

    Grief due to loss of horse

    It's good that you've managed to go to the yard. I'm glad you making small steps forward, it's all part of the healing process, which takes time. I hope getting him back Wednesday will allow you to look through pictures and remember those fabulous times you had together.

    Hard ground and riding

    The forest tracks are like concrete. There are some sandy tracks and grassy areas for a trot or two.

    Grief due to loss of horse

    It is hard when you don't know what caused the problem. I spent a few years investigating, trying different supplements, physio, changing how I managed her and never got to the bottom of it. Do not think 'what if', it's easy to try and blame yourself-DON'T! This is just you grieving by...

    What a rough time you're having. Glad your mum would have approved of her send off. I hope your boy settles and that you manage to get some rest and food into yourself.

    Horse with Cushings advice

    Personally I'd treat as laminitic, so no/as little sugar as possible. My friend found D&H cushcare good for her horse when he dropped weight in winter.

    Baling twine

    Holding up the exhaust. Used it to tie door handle to other part of the car when lock froze so couldn't close it.

    Pony weight loss timeline

    When my son's first pony, 11.2hh, arrived in August she was nearly 300kg, looked like she'd swallowed another pony. We stripped 70kg off her over the winter.
