    RE: Girthing up.....

    Good suggestions here already, but just want to add an additional thought. I know the chiro has checked the saddle over, but it might be worth getting a good saddle fitter (if you have one near you)...

    RE: Trial period when selling a pon

    Probably useful to draw up some sort of agreement that covers things like the actual time period, and maybe take a photo of the pony so you have a record of his condition. Agreement needs to state...

    RE: Over rugging!!!

    Sofia, I think it's a case for asking the owners, if you can. Although it sounds awful (personally I believe all paddock animals should have access to some form of shade), you don't know the full...

    Sorrel IS chestnut. As far as I can tell, it's just the American word for chestnut. As with chestnut, you can have gradations of colour.
