    He's so scrumptious > Heavy Hunter to make 17.2 >>>

    Just spotted the ad over there >>>> Not in the market - one is plenty for me especially when that one is the Beast and bigger than I would need for myself, but I do like the little fellow. Love a little window shopping :)

    Rugs - has anyone else taken the plunge

    Its 7-8 degrees at night here, and the beast is currently in a 100g turnout, he hasn't been clipped all winter. The weather has been pretty lovely by recent comparison but is set to get a bit wet by friday again. I have been holding off on whipping off the rug for 2 reasons really - the...

    Poorly beastie

    So, the poor boy is a little under the weather, all the horses at the yard are, slight coughs and runny noses - not too bad temps ok, the odd cough, tiny bit of intermittent snot, can't work out if Ben is a bit lethargic or just moping with the wet weather (as he does this too) as the other...

    Today I did something crazy - even by my standards

    After months out of the saddle I started riding ben three days ago, he was super charged the first day - could get no sense out of him in the school as he took offence at the changes in the sandschool, he was like a coiled spring so yesterday I decided to take him for a hack round the 'mini...

    That soul destroying moment...

    When you splosh water down the inside of your welly and all over your leg... Yep, that happened and 2 hrs later I peeled my sodden jeans and socks off to reveal my prune like toes. Yuck, Yuck, Yuck!

    Bitless options - talk to me

    After some basic bitless schooling earlier this year with the beast, I have decided to take the bit out of his mouth on a more permanent basis. Our trial earlier this year was in a simple micklem set up. We stayed in walk and trot, he was good, pretty responsive, calmer in his head, but I...

    paddock maintenance - buttercups - help!

    Hi all, I wonder if any of you wonderful people can help. Long story short I sectioned Ben's field off during the summer as he was a tad portly, I have been giving him a couple of foot at a time and then a little over a week ago opened up the rest. Since it is a wonderful 'all you can eat...

    Anyone know of a driving pair of friesians for sale?

    this isn't for me, I was on the phone to my friend whose employer is looking to purchase a driving pair she asked me if I knew any going - I don't.

    Straw and the fatties and insulin resistant horse - reading

    So, what with this and that, dad being diagnosed with cancer at christmas, his chemo and everything that comes with it. General hatred of riding in horrid rain, my waiting for an op or the all clear from the Drs to ride again.. the beast has had limited riding since the onset of 2017 and is...

    A sucker for food and bed...

    A short video of my beastie, he can get so over excited about things and can be very in your face - he is not fed treats because he can be quite muggy. During the end part of winter I got bored and decided to teach him to put himself to bed and ask for his dinner - sometimes I would be stood...

    Share, ride and enjoy MY horse for free...

    Sparked from the 'pay to ride my horse' thread - lets look at this another way. How about if I advertised my horse like this 'Ride, share and enjoy my horse - the one I paid for and continue to pay for for absolutely nothing, if it gets ill, needs treatment, needs food, shoeing, bedding...

    my insane, strong, argumentative, overenthusiastic beastie

    so I haven't ridden beast much since 2016 - so much going on in my personal life - I left him to himself. He has been ridden by me a handful of times, and by others - plus had a lunge or two most weeks... My friend came down for 10 days -she adores ben, and took over for the week - riding, and...

    JRT - Itchy Feet :(

    Hi all, wondering if anyone could give some advice/ideas on this. Our JRT (11yrs) has always been fine - about 18 months ago she started getting really itchy ears - she had special drops which alleviated the itch somewhat but never cured it. She then went onto itching her feet - so much...

    Hi there, I'm a little out of my depth here... A friend has an awesome MW cob for sale, she has asked me to help write the advert... Fine, can do. However, I have a feeling that price wise - she could be asking a lot more than she is. Basic info- 5 year old MW cob mare - 14.2/3...
