    What's the difference between the hay in the round bales and hay in square bales? Its just the same grass - just a different shape! That's what would be ringing alarm bells for me.

    I'm with Chardevj on this. i don't think that looks any better than what is already available. I actually think it looks a bit more claustrophobic than the one I have.

    If you are in NZ, we have had an awful spring. Lots of horses haven't properly shed out. The ones who have a great coat right now are mostly the ones who are underlights or who have been clipped. ...

    When measuring "english"style saddles they are measured from the front of the pommel to the back of the cantle - so I think you are measuring them too small.

    I'm not sure I'd want to use it as bedding. I lived for a while in a peat area and so the horses were living on peat land. It played heck with their feet. Even the smallest little holes would end up...

    Hormonal birth control didn't work on the New Zealand widl horses. Not sure why, but it hardly made a dent in their reproductive rate.

    When you get your next stable job, why don't you explain that you are a little out of practise and suggest that for the first 3 months you are paid a contract price for the work they want you to do....

    Is the bar to stop Rory getting in? And if so, why so high when its not going to have a horse in it?

    I'd love to use them, simply from their videos. Clearly they know horses- in all their forms and types and personalities. And it looks as if they have fun providing that excellent customer service.

    I use a hood. In summer, cotton with a slippery lining along the mane. I really like the way they don't rub the mane out, but train it to lie flat.

    I believe that children today are less exposed to danger and thus accidents and pain than they were 20+ years ago. They have little opportunity to assess their pain levels and work out how much pain...

    I didn't read the whole article, but wonder what the definition of "long term" and "many years" is. Human athletes tend to have a longer "working" life than equine athletes. The fewer number of years...

    I have travelled numerous horses over the years in hobbles. I train them when I am starting them, usually roping or strapping up a front leg. Horses learn to tolerate the restriction very quickly....
