Is anyone else looking for some hunters?

A friend of mine on the Mornington Peninsula is trying to re-home two male desexed short hair cats (they're brothers)

They have had to move to a house block where it's too dangerous for the cats to be outside, and the cats are just not happy being locked inside.

They're good hunters apparently.

Must go together, and must go somewhere where they can go outside safely.

It is imperative to insist your doctor tests for Coeliacs Disease. Very few have much knowledge of it. In a coeliac the gluten blocks the absorption of iron. Get that checked first then insist on further testing until you. Find out WHY you are anaemic.

Classic D grade doctor attitude to just treat the symptoms.

I had the coeliacs test because my sister has it. It definitely contributed to her anemia. So yes. Definitely get checked. The initial test is just a blood test

I also worked at a trail riding place near Mansfield and the horses were so well looked after- never poor in exceptional condition, feet done, rested when needed. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. The workload was big too over the terrain they rode over.

This. 100%. I'm disgusted at Ace-Hi because they seem to care more about the amount of people they can squeeze in than having well-conditioned horses. I realise it's tough right now for many people, but shouldn't that be the first priority in a business that relies on having healthy horses?

I've had a couple of TBs that have lost weight in winter and I'm still upset at myself that I didn't do more to prevent it from happening. They were both fat and happy in warmer months, but I felt I failed them in winter and I'm happy to admit that. My partner and I were struggling to eat ourselves at one point, so we leased my boy out to ensure he was well looked after as that was my priority. I had the opportunity to see the older one recently (23yo) and his owner had 'retired' him... aka left him in a paddock to rot and slowly wither away. These cases hit nerves.

I do know that I've had two foals that have learned to do it by mimicking another horse in the paddock (and since I've refused to have a windsucker on the farm because of that I haven't had one foal learn to do it) but loads of experts have told me I'm wrong and it isn't learned by copying.

I chose to disbelieve them!

Of course there are loads of other reasons too but these foals had none of those reasons.


Same here..
once I defended having windsuckers but then I saw others coming up doing it who previously hadn't..so I prefer not to have them round either.
Might be many a problem that creates actual windsucking..
but unless you have had a copier or two who had never done so prior and not having any issues other than standing watching..
I doubt anyone can say its NOT a learned habit.

When you have many clients horses pass thru the place you can only go by what you see and experience..not talking one or two a year either.
Part of my job entails watching them rather closely.

Monkey see monkey do..happens in all species Confused Confused


One of my horses is a windsucker (as outlined in the other thread), and none of the others have ever copied him. Having said this, I still believe the risk is there, it can be a learned behaviour. Not sure how often it happens, but yes, monkey see monkey do. I do know that he has taught his best friend to pull rugs off the fence Laughing

Not all horses will learn the habit, but they CAN and you won't know if your horse is going to be one of the ones that learns it or not until such time as its too late! Prevention is better than cure!

I definitely think it can be a learned behaviour, I know some people think differently but here's my opinion.

Wouldn't you say it's a survival tool (in baby animals especially)? Learned behaviour is defined as "an activity that an animal is taught through training, observation or experiencing their environment". So, if given the chance, some of our buffoons might copy this behaviour because they think it will be beneficial to them.

For clarification, I'm not saying that's the sole cause of it, but saying it's likely.

I said "two foals". Foals learn by mimicking. That's why you don't want to raise an orphan foal in isolation from other horses.


Certain behaviours are hard wired, like scratching etc

Yes, apparently my guy learned to windsuck as a foal from his mum. But then, could be crap, was told so much bulldust that really I have no idea who he is or anything, but I do know he's a good windsucker! Laughing

For another POV:
I work on a Mid ward in a country hospital. And the labour team always do a little groan when a woman comes in who rides horses Laughing
This is largely anecdotal but the midwives strongly believe that horse riding strengthens the perineum and can actually make the second stage of labour more difficult because the pelvic floor won't yield, and often the woman requires an episiotomy to assist.

But then again there are obvious benefits to keeping fit, active and happy!!! Good luck with whatever you choose!!! Smile

Hmm don't let your child catch the bus then, heaps of animals on there. Climb trees? Not on on your nelly kids! No contact sports, no pony club, no vehicular transport, vaccines can kill as well as peanut butter, Sudden Cardic Arrest is from sports and red meat gives you bowl cancer.

I don't think the Horson brand are Indian leather. Made over seas possibly. Had mine for 6 years and sold it in perfect condition. Lovely soft leather. Wouldn't classify $300 cheap either.

Pretty sure the Horson bridle I have has Horson stamped it.

Will check tomorrow.

My understanding of Horson bridles:

Lesser quality English leather - sent over seas (possibly India) to be made to Horobin specifics.

Not cheap. A bit hit & miss. Horobin stopped doing it about 5(?) years ago.

Edited to add: I do have a gorgeous Horson leather halter.

Id just like to introduce my new boy- im very excited about this one!.
He was previously one of obsessed's (from the forum) horses.
After a back run of luck with horses and soundness issues, robyn who is also my instructor gave me this boy to ride for a while.. when she put him up for sale, i had to buy him, i was in love with his beautiful temperament and he is so easy to do anything with.
R L Meerkat, or 'Gilbert' as he is affectionately known is a 4 year old warmblood by capone with a quarter andalusian in him.
I am very smitten with him.

Patsy, put dishwashing liquid on grease stains immediately, work into the stain and rinse.

It works best when the stain is wet.
