    Aged, arthritic horse - barefoot query

    Hi all :) Long time no see! My old warmblood is back off full loan after 7 years. He is rather arthritic in his hind legs, however I think his nearside shoulder is going the same way and his neck is very clicky too. He has been back with me for 8 days now and I put him onto Simple Systems...

    Bedale Hunt

    Just wondering if anyone hunts with them? Apparently they meet right outside my new livery yard so I'll look forward to seeing it. :D :D Obviously at 6'2" and 5 months pregnant I'm not going to be hunting my mini shettie, although it would be amusing to watch :grin:

    Ponies and Donkeys

    A long time ago I was told that if you are keeping a pony with a donkey it needs to be wormed with an extra wormer. I can't remember what it was though I know I sound like a complete biff, but could someone let me know if this is actually the case and if so, what are the worms called that I...

    I'm excited!! (but very sad!)

    Found some old proofs of me eventing my boy that is now on loan (XC and SJ pics) that I couldn't afford to get pics from at the time. I got upset because these are the only nice pics of him that I have from when I had him. So on a whim - I emailed the photographer. Bearing in mind the pics were...

    Just thought I would ask - as people have very different things that they treat their horse with (food wise) I personally am very naughty - my old boy used to LOVE kitkats and Haribo Tangfastics and my current horsey got whatever I was eating and used to like Tuna Sandwiches... :runs away...

    Baby vs Horse

    Just thought I would put this too you. Money wise my husband and I (and our 1 yr old daughter) could either afford another baby or a horse. I have said to him that I wanted 2 babies close together so I could get back to work etc for good once all the baby business was done, but he wasn't so...
