Keeping Your Whites White and Your Brights Bright   14th Dec 2013
Keeping Your Whites White and Your Brights Bright
General Winter can present some challenges when it comes to keeping your horse groomed. If you've got a grey, palomino, cremello or pinto or any other white or pale colored horse, you might not recognize your horse until spring, because manure stains, mud and other grime can turn your horse into a horse of a different color. You can't bathe your horse, because of the cold and no matter how much elbow grease you apply, it's hard to get rid of the 'yellows'. Grooming isn't just about how your horse looks. Grooming in winter is also a good time to check for cool and damp weather problems like lice, rain rot, ringworm and scratches.

My Dead Horse Visited Me Last Night
 by Miss Mustang on 11th Dec 2010
My Dead Horse Visited Me Last Night Horse Stories  It was around nine at night and I just really wanted to see Rebel, but that was impossible so I cycled down to my livery yard and sat down in Rebels Stable. Just weeping and weeping untill it hurt to open my eyes. I sat there silently until I heard a crash and saw a white flash even though my eyes were shut tight. I opened then squinting and a bright light. My heart skip a beat at what stood in front of me.

Choosing a Horse
 by Polo the Weirdo on 16th Aug 2010
Choosing a Horse General  What would be the point of having that lovely skewbald if it is trained in barrel racing and you want to be dressage? Why get that first horse you see if you want to do showing and it has cow hocks and an ewe-neck? Would you thank yourself for getting that champion horse when you find that it’s just too fizzy for you, and throws you off on every second stride? No, you would not. As such, you need to forget about what you want or what you’ve always dreamed of, and focus on what you need.

MTG - Mane Tail Groom   13th Aug 2010
MTG - Mane Tail Groom
Product Reviews To begin with, Marmalade was experiencing hair loss from a condition known as rain rot. The skin in the affected areas had either no hair or sparse, bristly, loose hair. The skin was very dry and flaky. I looked up different hair growth products, and my mother found M-T-G. We went and purchased a 32 oz. bottle for roughly $30.00.
