    Mare kicks

Squats, squirts, messy down the back legs and kicks- horses and people. She is not trustworthy when out of heat either. Still might...

    Hay Choices

    We have just found a new hay supplier. They are a private yet commercial supplier. Their hay is forage analysis tested. We have seen samples (from 2013 anyway) of some of their bales. I just wondered how many of you felt about the different grasses. We generally don't feed straight alfalfa...

    What will your Easter menu be?

    Do you have a standard Easter meal or dish you serve? Do you have family over or just yourself? My sister had Easter breakfast once with family and one extra couple who's grown kids couldn't make it home that year. She had eggs (however you wanted them), bacon, sausage links, toast and muffins.
