    Is Kevin a Mini?

    Hello, I was just wanting to see what people's opinions on what Kevin is. He is around 41 inches? I will check his height properly tomorrow. And a mini is usually under 38 inches aren't they? But If his parents were miniatures does that make him a mini regardless? I have owned his mother she...

    The Newest Addition!

    Hi all! Today I went and treated myself with my money. Instead of buying more horse things I really don't need, I bought a new addition to my "Little Farm". I was so lucky to get this little girl, using the Facebook "Buy, sell, swap" page, I found her for sale. I was lucky to get in and say...

    Lead line pony.

    Hello, Within the next couple of weeks I am going to be gelding Kevin. Then I want to carry on with some training, pretty much desensitizing and some basic things, which he is surprisingly really good with. I want to make him my walking buddy to start with, and get him out and about and seeing...

    Hello, In the next few weeks I am getting my Kevin gelded. We also have a rescue horse living here called Banjo, and his owner Tenae wants him gelded as well. And its cheaper for both of us in vet travel fees if we get them both done on the same day. Anyway, we called some vets and they said...

    Pawing Horses...

    Hello, Does anyone have some advice on teaching a horse to stop pawing? Snickas is really bad for it, when you approach her with food, sometimes without food, she paws like crazy... She also paws the steel gate which is really loud and irritating. She is a very greedy girl, and loves her food...

    Gelding Kevin

    Hi, So I really need to geld my 2 year old colt Kevin. He has been very 'studdish' and I am not experienced enough to handle a studdish horse. He is very strong and could become dangerous as I experienced today. He is normally very laid back and easygoing, now he isn't. I just wanted to know...

    Rearing foal

    Hi, I just have a quick question about my little Texas, she is 3 months now. Sometimes when I am out with her she rears up at me for no reason, I'm not sure if this is her 'playing' because she does it to her mum too. But she has her ears back when she does. Its normally when she is bundled up...

    A few questions

    Hello, I have a couple questions that have been on my mind that I wanted to ask. This question is more of opinion, but when you bath your horse, do you let him off to roll, or do you keep him off the dirt and rug him. I have watched videos in the past, some wash and let them roll, some rug...

    Mice and Hay.

    Hi, We have a bad mice problem here. We are constantly killing mice in our house and they aren't just in our house they are down the paddock and in our hay.

    Do you think Willow is Pregnant?

    I have another question. Not about Snickas or Texas. So on the 25th of Nov 2015 I wrote down the date Toby went over Willow. Its been 7 months now? I haven't seen him crazy over her since. At 7 months would she be really big if she was pregnant? I haven't really checked her for a while now so I...

    Lifted tail?

    Hi. I am just a bit curious about the way Kevin holds his tail. When he is out eating he will hold his tail up so it isnt touching his bum, its not lifted crazy high. If i walk up to him he will put it back down. I am just concerned if it is a sign of pain. I can touch his tail and...

Some asked if it is 'Indian Leather' or 'Australian Leather' But I wouldn't have a clue. It has no brand/stamp on the leather anywhere. Is there any way I can Identify...
