Hi there, looking for help and advice from people who manage 'fatties' on grass livery.
I am taking over a grass diy livery yard (14 horses), mostly good doer native types.

Can anybody tell me why a horses BSJA record would have Dam and Sire noted as 'unknown' when full breeding is a known quantity and included in the passport?

Afternoon to all Stallion geeks

Does anybody have any experience of the 'thermavet' thermal imaging camera device that attaches to the iphone?
Seems like a really good idea and useful product (its around £200) just wanting to see if anybody has purchased and can confirm its worth the expense?
Just a quick question - is the title possible?

I have managed to put some xray pictures in an album on my profile - if anyone can help putting them on here I would be grateful?!
They show xrays of my horses spine taken as a result of battling ongoing grade 4 gastric ulcers which are not responding to treatment.
Just had my boy scoped again after 3 months of GG for Grade 4 pyloric ulcers and to my horror the ulcers are worse than they were at day 1 :-O.
He is now going to try Ranitidine instead along with a 2nd lot of antibiotics and then potentially some sucralfate. The specialist has...
