    White Shetlands.

    Ok I know ponies are not white they are grey. But near junction 10 of the M4 there is a field full of very cute white shetland's . Do they have a job to do or are they just someone's hoarding habit. They do make me smile when I have been past though.

    Help to oil or not?

    I have after 10+ years bought Maggie a new bridle it is a good quality Jeffries one. I have used it once after leather barm & conditioning soap but still much stiffer than I would like.

    Weg 2018

    So it is not going to be at Bromont hope they find someone to host it. Having visited Bromont this year though a lovely site it was hard to imagine them being able to host such a big event. Sad for them as they were all keen to host it and were very welcoming to us.

    Carrie Vincent

    Do not have a clue about her but she has just been prosecuted for selling non bomb pro horses as safe. Would you believe she was a police officer at the time. Accidents happen but to sell unsuitable horses to people is a crime. It was on our local news so I am sure it is fine to name and shame...

    Catching up on some reading and in the free local paper there was a dressage report. They mentioned a KWPN gelding and than in the next sentence called him a hermaphrodite. I have seen many pigs that were hermaphrodites but never heard of a horse. And would you then call it a gelding or is it...

    Mare's behaviour

    My mare is known to kick but has been a fabuless mum and was no trouble when they were put back together after weaning. So why when I put a rug on her 15mnt daughter for the first time did she attack her she must reconise her. I have had to try to slowly get her used to her wearing it now but...
