    Thank you Pammy Hutton - and Horse & Hound. You're a great team!

    I confess I'm the mingy sort who has a quick look at a magazine I follow before I take it to the till. If nothing catches my eye, I tend not to buy. Spotted the Comment bit - Pammy Hutton this week - always a good read. I was VERY glad my local newsagent hadn't run out - as he had by Thursday...

    The first hint of success for our campaign: an e-mail sent to BHS Members today - some members do not get e-mails so read it here: Dear Member, As you may know, the Board recently proposed some amendments to the British Horse Society’s Articles of Association, and these were scheduled to be...

    Shropshire Riders:

    Bridleways can be the bane of our lives and I confess Shropshire 'officials' appear to take much more notice of Ramblers than of horse riders. A chance to open their eyes - a survey that will take 5 minutes and MIGHTget a bit more action...

    What do we want to TELL the BHS - in no uncertain terms!!

    Obviously not all members will be able to get to the BHS EGM on Saturday 5th January. Hopefully you have all put your proxies in good hands. But lets get clear on the messages the BHS needs to hear - and that will be repeated ad finitum until they take notice!! Obviously, the FIRST priority...

    Another British Horse Society c**k-up

    I thought that after Sheila Hardy won her unfair dismissal case, there MIGHT have been an improvement in employer/employee relations. But now - Wendy Suddess - who has worked her backside off for the BHS for 17 years - has been sacked. I'm slowly gathering facts - but far too many people seem...

    Vets who CAN't scan!

    It's been a while since I posted here, so I don't know if I can get up the pic of my latest foal. He's very cute, and 'normal' and gee - he has a heartbeat. Mare was scanned SIX times after covering by my new (and now EX) vet - because of her gloom and doom. Fist the foetus was malformed, had...

    Veterinary error - ?negligence

    I have a nice young mare about to go to the specialists to have a rear tooth removed. She had her mouth seen 4 times by my vet in the last 12 months - 1st when we were about to back her. She wouldn't settle in her mouth and was quidding badly - another check. Then another - oh gee, she has a...

    Anyone with experience of Temporomandibular Dysfunction?

    It's a new one on me, but it looks like one of my 5yos has it. She's been fussy about her mouth for months, vet did teeth (again!) and said she had a ramp on the near side. Did what he could with it - no improvement - still quidding more haylage than she swallows. So explored again and found...

    More song titles for horses' names

    I found this old thread in the HHO archives from 2011 and thought it would be fun to have an update. But of course you can't update Archives. Since then, Indigo Three Times a...

    Equine Action Group on Facebook - anyone ripped off

    The Equine auction Group on FB is of course run by a couple of crooks. A friend just lost a deposit paid to a fake profile using that group - anyone else had any experiences with it?

    Lame - where, why, what to do

    A nice 6yo gelding, brought on quietly. Been 2/10ths lame for about 8 weeks now. Has had 2 weeks box rest on bute, no change. Been seen by own vets - plus 2 days wih the consultants. Nerve blocked, x-rayed etc. Nothing! Physio has checked him out thoroughly - couldn't find anything. So...

    RIGHT HORSE RIGHT HOME - anyone used it?

    Question as in the title. Has anyone used RIGHT HORSE RIGHT HOME to help sell a horse? I made the mistake of trying it - listed 2 horses. 6 months went by without a word from them ad the horses were sold by other means. THEN they sent me one enquiry - and hit me for the subscription. (I'd...

    Any other ideas on why a backer won't tolerate a roller?

    He's a 4yo - we've backed 5 full siblings (all easy-peasy.) 3 of his full siblings ended up with kissing spines - so had him x-rayed before we started - all clear. When he refused to accept a roller - slowly and carefully introduced - I had a guess at ulcers. Two weeks treatment to date and...

    4x4 for towing

    Have to replace my 2.8 auto pajero - it's finished. Didn't get driven while I was ill, and RATS finished off the electrics! I'd love to find another just like it - but working - but they seem to be few and far between - and I just don't have the time to travel very far. So trying to look at...

    Update on Kissing Spines

    Well - we had a day of it yesterday. Snoopy had steroids injected into the relevant areas - and will restart working - using Visconte Simon Cocozza's ideas - in a week. Didn't have time to have another look at Lucy (who had surgery last year.) But Linus ..... (4 year old we had JUST started...

    Kissing Spines - is there any current research?

    I've become far more familiar with Kissing Spines than I have ever wanted to be! 3 full siblings - from the same 3/4 TB mare have developed it - between 5 and 8. That says to me - possibly conformation caused - but more likely hereditary. Is there any current research going on??

    Tack room clearout - I'm still in shock!

    I spent yesterday sorting the aftermath of a total clear-out of my tack room - by clever thieves who accessed through the fields - so didn't have to tackle the heavy chain and padlock on the gate across the drive (which definitely would have woken the dogs.) Brute force used on the padlock on...

    Separation anxiety - ideas??

    I have a nice 6yo coming back today - as his first 3 weeks at his fist new home has turned him into a monster. I've only had this problem once before - with a lot of horses sold - and the 1st one had some excuses. He was 11, never been off the place before, the original Mr. Laidback. He came...

    Help - 'curing' a headshaker??

    Do I have one?? I've never had one - or even seen one to the best of my knowledge and in the last 2 weeks I've read more than I ever wanted to read about it and I'm still clueless! Three weeks ago I sold a home-bred, 6 year old mare - 3/4 ID/1/4TB. Within a week the buyer was claiming she...

    Does anyone else have 'script' problems on HHO

    Wierd young horse problem

    I may well regret posting this here - but it's so desperate I'll take the risk in the hope SOMEONE has an idea we haven't tried. Sir John is 3 - hell, no, he's officially 4! He has been a nervous **** since before he was gelded. Absolutely NO reason for it. I know his mother, and his...
