    Hi just wondering here

    In my very late 20's I wasn't fortunate enough to have my own horse until then. Rode at a riding school from the age of 6 and during my teenage years was fortunate to be allowed to ride ponies owned by a local dealer.

    Horse prices - groan

    I think you are underestimating the price it costs to breed a decent horse, from the stud fee to production. Something that is ready to go elementary will have had a good few hours training put into it.

    Striped hooves - showing?!

    Same here, I think it looks awful and very unnatural. My mare is jet black and a county standard riding horse but I only use the clear oil as I think it looks so much better.

    Wildlife when out hacking

    Really miss seeing all the wildlife that the UK has. Here I see wild pigs, goats and quite often deer sometimes a few birds but that is about it. I was riding in Australia a few years back when on holiday and there were kangaroos jumping up the track in front of us which was cool.

    I usually double net with two fine ones, looks better than one heavy one I think. Any chemist should stock them.

    What would you do?

    She is being totally unreasonable and is fortunate that you have put up with this selfish behavior for so long. I would just go in and if she says anything say you will try to keep away from her but its the only convenient time for you to ride. If she wants exclusive use she should be...

    What is this bit called and how harsh is it?

    My mare goes beautifully in this bit, you don't see many eggbuts these days. A Dr Bristol has a much bigger more square piece in the middle.

    Getting rid of rats without using poison

    I thought those sticky pads had been banned,due to being extremely cruel. I know rats are vile but still living creatures who should be disposed of humanely

    Agitated mare

    She could well be grass affected, you mention the amount of grass growing at the moment. Have you tried giving her magnesium. Have a look at this site there is lots of information on it.

    Nightmare abcess. Help

    This, a few years ago I experienced this with my old horse, it went on all winter eventually, it burst out of his heel I think the time span was about 3 months from start to finish. A very stressful time for myself and painful for my horse.
