Thank you all once again for all your help, which is invaluable :)
I was hoping Honey08 would reply to let me know what sealent she used, as that looks like a shorter term option to get me through the Winter, as it may now be too wet to get to the shelter, if heavy vehicles are involved with...
Hi all and thank you for your help here :)
Just a few questions to some of you please?
What steel sheets did you use and are they noisy when it rains or hails?
The nails on my roof have little clips, so it must be movement that has made the holes enlarge and leak...
I am amazed to log on and see such a great response to my questions on Onduline and thank you all so much for your time to respond.
There are a few people that I would like to ask further questions and will re read the posts and reply again ....
Oh my goodness I did not think I would get so many good replies in such a short time, so thank you all so much :)
It is guaranteed for 15 years, although the amount they may compensate reduces after 5 years.
My Field Shelter was erected by a very good supplier 8 years ago and still looks...
Have any of you any experience of Onduline Roofing Panels used on your Field Shelter or Stables please?
Are you able to answer some or all of these questions?
When was in installed?
Has it warped?
Are there stains through the sheets?
Is it leaking?
If it is leaking, how long did it...
Hi Rhaloulou thank you for your answer and yes I will speak to other feed suppliers .... I have only spoken to Spillers and they were very helpful :)
Motor cannot chew much nowadays, apart from Carrots and Polos .... funny that :P
He is a 14.3 Welsh D x Hackney love the Welshies and I expect you...
Thank you RhaLoulou for your reply ...
Another Cushings horse, so I presume you have to watch what you feed her. What is 'outshine' and what sort of quantity did you give in a feed of that and alfalfa nuts?
Motor is 14.3 and about 600lb ....
Once again thank you all for your help and advice, all of which I am taking on board, in the quest to find the best solution for Motor :)
Polos Mum - the problem is that his back teeth are like billiard balls and although he tries to chew the hay, he fails and out it comes, but now his...
Thank you all for you help and advice which is really great that you have taken so much time to respond to my plight .... :)
I cannot respond to everyone individually, otherwise I will be here all night :O
As TGM says he is a Cushings/Laminitic and I have to be careful with grass nuts, as he has...
Thanks for your reply which is greatly appreciated.
He gets 8 lbs of HFNs and 3 lbs of HH ... not so keen on the HH !
I presume l can soak more HH and put in different bowls around his FS... what did you used to do?
Motor is now nearly 33 and due to his teeth being of no use any longer, I will have to take away his hay net, as he has started to choke on it :(
I currently feed 3 meals of soaked Splillers High Fibre Nuts and Happy Hoof, that currently keep him in good condition - all in all about 11lbs a...
Yes he can be fed outside, but then Crows get at it more, but I suppose the lesser of the two evils and it may break the cycle a bit :)
Damned Fox has now taken an empty hay net and tore it to bits and my gloves .... my fault for leaving them in their reach .... poo everywhere yuk yuk .... in...
Well Clodagh .... it didn't work and I think she must have got off on the smell, as there was more disturbed shavings, under Motor's feed this morning :( ..... BUT saying that, I did not find any poo in there :) ....... so we are part of the way there aren't we? :devilish:
He has a full shavings bed and free access to his paddock 24/7.
I have sprayed the line into his Field Shelter with Jeyes Fluid and behind it .... let's see if she ventures in and makes a mess tonight.
Friend has seen the Fox standing inside and poor Motor looking in.
Thanks for all your help...
Thank you Clodagh for all your suggestions, it's a great help.
It's definitely Foxes as she stands and watches me .... no Badgers in the vicinity!
She defecates under his hanging feed bowl and then it looks as though she tries to reach it and spreads all the shavings over it .. yuk yuk
I have stables (Feild Shelter) in the field, so my boys walk in and out as they please ...... and so does the damned Fox :(
She digs up Motor's bed and defecates every night and he is suffering from what the Vet diagnosed previously as Mange .... any ideas would be appreciated.
Many thanks :)
SpottDottyPony - my heart goes out to you and can only think that time allows the pain and upset and all the other emotions, to subside :(. There must be a time when the lovely, good and happy memories, don't make you cry ......
I have this to come and I am dreading it, as my boy, who has gone...
I need to test my 12v Batteries, used for my Electric fencing, so that I know it has charged up properly BEFORE I hump it to the field and find it has not charged up properly.
Anyone recommend a very good make please?
I only use a trickle charger and therefore cannot rely on the fact it...
