    Can I pick your glorious brains?

    Hello my moragulous beauties! I was just wondering if I could pick your horsey brains? I am planning the social media activity for some sponsored riders for work over Badminton. I was just wondering what kind of content you would like to see from professional riders on social media...

    Joint fusion or amputation?

    Just off to the vets to discuss whether we have the lurcher’s wrist joint fused or amputate the leg following exhausting all other options. The vet believes that fusion is the better option, but I have never heard of fusion that was successful and didn’t result in eventual amputation. I was...

    Starzaan’s glorious Badminton HHO dinner extravaganza!

    Hello you glorious bunch of bints!!! I am hereby cordially inviting you to come stuff your faces with me one night during Badminton week. I love just down the road and there is a LOVELY pub nearby, so I think we should all go and eat ourselves silly and talk about hot farriers and sausages...

    Full livery in Dorset?

    Hellooo you beautiful sexmuffins!!! I am potentially moving to Dorset, and am looking around at yards first, just to see what’s around. I am that picky toad who has a long list of requirements... sooo... Must offer full livery (exercise 7 days a week ideally as I am away with work a lot)...

    Urgent - french speakers required!

    Hello lovelies! I desperately (and urgently) need a third pair of eyes to run over a few lines of French for me. Preferably someone who is strong enough with their French to know colloquial horsey terms. Snogs and eternal gratitude to anyone who can help!

    Indulge me for two minutes...

    Ok you moragulous wenches, I don't normally whine, but my goodness I need to whine. I am of the "as long as horse isn't suffering or hurting anyone, I couldn't give two hoots what you do with it" school of thought. I keep my trap shut when people do things I disagree with, unless I am...

    Any ideas?

    Helloooo! Weird question for you my moragulous chums. Does anyone know who has bought Beaurepaire Park in Hampshire? I'm being thick and can't work out how I would go about finding out. I also have a sore thumb. Too much vigorous morag wafting and welly dancing has injured it. SNOGS

    Great Dane with possible broken elbow/tumour

    Hi everyone, so, my 5yr old Dane has done something to himself. On Wednesday night I came back into the house after putting Baeley in (I was outside for about an hour), and was greeted by Gollum hopping on three legs. I took him to the vet first thing Thursday, and they said they think...

    Horse hunters I need your help!

    Right my morag wafting sex muffins, I am on the hunt for a new pony, and it's not going terribly well! I found the PERFECT horse (advertised in H&H with the tag line "Steady Eddie") but he failed the vet, so it's back to square one. I am terribly fussy I'm afraid, so, the ideal horse is -...

    HELP! Great Dane had a seizure.

    I'm just after some information really. My 4yr old Great Dane had a fit this morning. I am epilepsy trained for humans as part of my job, so hopefully I dealt with it well. It lasted just over a minute, but the worrying part was the prolonged post-ictal reaction - he was blind for about...

    Trainer in Basingstoke area?

    Hello all, I'm getting desperate! I'm in real need of some help with my Great Dane. He is very nervous about other dogs that he doesn't know and this manifests itself in the form of aggression. He has been extremely well socialised from day 1, but was attacked as a puppy and I think this is...

    Please help - dog pushing his boundaries with older dog.

    Right, I'm feeling terrible at the moment having just pulled the Great Dane off my older boy, and would love any advice anyone has to offer. In 2008 I took on a beautiful 7 month old Great Dane x Doberman from the Blue Cross. He'd had a hard start in life, and was absolutely perfect for me...

    Help! Choosing an arena surface?

    We are currently building a new outdoor school, and are looking at surfaces. Ideally we want a sand and rubber mix to prevent freezing - much as I love fibre and sand mixes they do freeze and we need to be able to use it throughout the winter. I'm looking for any advice at all - what not to...

    In shock... I can't believe my pony's gone.

    I just had my beautiful beautiful youngster put to sleep. This morning I found him in the field barely able to stand, after he had obviously smashed through fencing and broken open a pheasant feeder. My OH filled the feeder last night, so Kai ate approximately 15kg of corn. He had...

    There aren't any words....

    for how ecstatic I am. I just received an email from a client whose horse went home on Sunday after three weeks of intensive schooling. He's a 5yr old ex-racehorse who she was having real trouble with. He's her first horse, and she was having real problems with mounting him, with his bargey...

    Advice please - my showjumper is going showing!

    RIGHT, so, as most of you know, my darling Roy boy is getting very old now, and obviously can't do as much as he used to. He's an ex Grade A sj and puissance horse, who has competed all over Europe, so obviously at the grand old age of 28 his legs are a bit iffy. He loves hunting, and so will...

    Alright alright you can have an update you hags.

    Right... so... the farrier saga ended when I grew a pair of big shiny brass ones, and decided that the hot soldier was a much better option in every way. Sadly, as soon as I grew my brass ones and whacked them on the barbie in front of the farrier, he decided that THEN would be the time to...

    For all those of you who like trawling the internet for things....

    Help! I'm thinking of selling my lorry and buying a slightly bigger one, but cannot for the life of me find any examples of similar things on the internet to give me a vague idea of price. It's a 6.5ton Iveco with day living. Takes two large horses comfortably (my 17.2hh Dutch Warmblood...

    Another shameless "I love my Roy" thread...

    So, I know I wittered on for hours a few months ago about how much my Roy boy means to me, but he's just proved himself to be my once in a lifetime horse once again. The illness I have developed as a result of my reaction to the hair dye has been really getting me down recently. I'm still...

    My darling youngster is actually the sexiest thing on the planet.

    Even sexier than FF. And that's saying something.... he was re-backed on Sunday after being turned away for over a year (supposed to only be 6 months but my illness scuppered that plan), and was an ABSOLUTE SAINT. Uncle Roy held his hand, but he didn't need him at all... Now, I adore this...

    I need a farrier please - preferably an ugly one with morals.

    So, my farrier is a raging t w a t of the highest order, and also a rat. He may be beautiful, he may be capable of making me the happiest creature on the planet, but the fact remains - he's a rat. I want to use his lovely housemate, but annoyingly I have more of a heart than he does, so...

    Pg 38 of H&H...anyone else notice?

    Did anyone else notice the bloody foam around the mouth of that pretty bay on the left? Why on earth is it in a snaffle if matey has to haul on it's gob that much? Now, I know it COULD be something like a burst blood vessel in the nose etc....but I don't think it is. It makes me SO CROSS...

    Run free Milly mare... we'll miss you.

    Jump big hedges in the sky my beautiful girl... nobody will put buckets of water in your box any more, nobody will make you go out into the horrid field wearing a rug when all you want to do is snuggle in your bedroom and eat... nobody will chicken out of doing the big classes at competitions...

    When your world is falling down around you...

    and you're starting to seriously doubt your ability to cope any longer without screaming and exploding into a million glittery pieces.... you go and see your horse, and life seems ok again. I just went pottering out in the snow in my pyjamas sobbing like an idiot, and gave Roy a heart attack...
