Equine welfare issues aside; Mike and Terri-Ann really need to run their copy past a sub-editor, or go (back?) to journalism college.
The writing is so extraordinarily dire, it's hard to believe it would be accepted by a school teacher, let alone by a national newspaper.
I gave up at;
I read a bit today about extracts of seaweed which are supposed to be helpful in tackling plaque build-up; one of the horsey herb companies sells some seaweed/rosehip powder for dogs.
although a) the study I saw was funded by the manufacturer of one of the products and
b) relative's dog has...
Just saw this:
"Bad teeth revealed as biggest problem for pet greyhounds" - University of Bristol
A relative has a 13 year old lurcher cross who has bad teeth, coincidentally (no pun intended)
Do people clean their dogs' teeth? And how do you train them to tolerate this?
Re Aloe Vera; if you can't find a plant, Holland & Barrett sell 100/200ml tubes of pure aloe vera gel (own brand) which are not expensive. I always keep some.
Most other AV products tend to be more expensive and/or contain only a small amount of AV
For what it's worth, a friend of mine who's long term ill has been through the whole PIP process and has just had a Tribunal.
The DWP will try and get you off their books any way they can, as those are their orders from above; however at the Tribunal stage you are dealing with a very different...
Have you heard of Barry Hook in Andover, Hants?
Maybe he could help you search for a new owner - if that is what you decide.
If I was in your situation I'd be calling him for sure.
So very sorry to read this.
Sending a hug (( )) and best wishes
This page is for the RNIB Sight Loss Counselling team, maybe they could offer you and your partner some support
Thanks for that. "How to photograph horses without distortion" would be a useful thread...
My digital camera is rubbish for this, it seems to double the size of the horse's head while the back legs shrink :(
A couple of other favourite artists...
Charles Tunnicliffe - see his book "how to draw farm animals " or any of his wonderful bird paintings
Colin See-Paynton - gorgeous wood engravings of (often) birds
They're wonderful aren't they?
I don't know how much they sell for, but the contact page has a link you can click to email for a price list...
I believe she does open days... no dates posted yet.
I expect many will also know that her late husband Bert...
Ooh must mention Heather Jansch, many of you will know her work (esp if you have been to the Eden Project.)
Many people imitate her style - but they are not achieving anything like this standard. The lines in her work are perfect!
People who breed for colour ignore other vital things - like conformation!

Hear hear. Maybe even more in the USA than here! Am no expert on conformation but this...
Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but;
crafty corner... please feel free to add horse/animal art/craft work you have admired
Just saw these very nice hobby horses online. Great work Lynne.
I love that the sticks are short "especially for jumping" ! :)...
We wanted a fire damaged tree cut down and a burned fence mended. A very pleasant garden guy came and looked, but he doesn't do the quotes, it is the boss in the office.
Waited several weeks, emailed to remind the office about our quote, still nothing. Assumed they did not want the job, and...
I take a vegetarian Omega 3 called NuIQue (used to be called V-Pure) which is made from capsules of algae; eating algae is how fish acquire their Omega 3!
I presume it may be pronounced New-Eye-Queue, but I tend to think of it as New-Eek.
I am terrible for buying supplements and then taking them...
My little niece and I discovered by accident a new game to play with my sister's car (which was in reverse gear but not moving).
We found things held close to the reversing camera appear hilariously colossal in the dash display.
Including faces and - well of course - bums. Give it a go; but...
Loving all the beautiful pert/huge/fluffy/frosty/dappled/airborne equine posteriors! :D
Anyone else been told that the "Head of a lady/bottom of a cook" also applied to them, ha ha?
*sigh* One can't help being an English pear!
We women are like hourglasses, they say. Eventually all the sand...
Reference/instructional books definitely.
Mark Rashid really changed the landscape for me: made me see horse behaviour as just "information" not insubordination.
Amazing what a difference that can make.
Picked up Kelly Marks's Perfect Partners the other day and found it much better than I'd...
