Did anyone else get some explicit views when trying to get on Vic horse yesterday. Well I got Laura Ashley- dating service then I got some sex ad with pics to go with it. Not good when we have junior members on Vict horse maybe whoever runs vic horse needs to update software so members don't get unwanted ads like I got yesterday.

If you can go a little further out, Four Figs in Beaconsfield is amazing! Very Happy

Or La Atruim in Cranbourne.


Definitely try out Four Figs, you won't be disappointed!



I have been to Four Figs twice before, lovely cozy cafe! Smile

We have decided to head to Nomadic on High St, Berwick Razz


It can be very loud at Nomadic if there are a lot of people there!

The french place a few shop up the road is much nicer!!


You're right, it was very noisy! Lucky we were able to sit outside in the sun. However, the whole experience wasn't too flash, which was a real shame. Oh well, I'm home now so will be back at the local Laughing

whooops, they got bogged on the way to the fields on Saturday. Took an hour to get out.

Then went to a market, but my daughter didn't buy anything as most things were made of leather or goat skin.

Off to the crocodile pond soon.

South West Vic Weekly Forecast

Weekly Update, issued July 24th

Weather Situation :

A strong cold front and low pressure system are moving through the Bight, and into Sa and Victoria. Widespread showers and thunderstorms with local hail are moving though areas of East of Adelaide into the NW of Victoria, and we may see a little bit of activity spill over the border into NSW. A vigorous westerly pattern will be the order of the day over the next week, as the Antarctic Oscillation is now heavily negative. We will see another front On Tuesday move through coastal SA and Victoria, and another stronger front on Friday and into the weekend. By next weekend, the colder air from this surge will start to penetrate North into QLD. As a response, a surface trough will develop along the coast. An Upper trough will also develop into Southern WA over the next weekend.

Week 1, July 24th – July 31st.

Widespread rain, thunderstorms and local hail are moving through Victoria today as a strong cold front moves through

Further fronts move through over the next 48 hours, with showers continuing over the next 72 hours

Later in the week fine conditions will develop, as a high pressure ridge moves over SE Australia.

On the weekend an upper trough will develop in SA and this will move into Victoria next Sunday.

Rainfall : 25 – 40 mm.

Forecast Confidence : Very High

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Week 2, August 1st– August 8th

A cold front will clear early in the period and conditions will become fine.

A large upper trough will develop in WA, and this is likely to bring further rain into Victoria during this period.

Widespread rain develops with this front, and extends well into Northern Victoria.

Late in the period, a surface trough brings wide spread rain into Central QLD.

Rainfall : 15 – 25 mm.

Forecast Confidence : High

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Week 3, August 9th – August 16th

An upper trough will now start to develop in the Indian Ocean, and this will be the onset of Spring like rainfall

It will feed in from the NW, and begin to deliver widespread heavy rain through the interior of the country.

This is likely to become the focus for the following two weeks.

All that remains to be seen is if this interacts with cold air, which would increase rainfall dramatically.

Rainfall : 20 – 30 mm

Forecast Confidence : Medium / High

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Week 4, August 17th– August 24th

Further low pressure is likely during this period, with the barrage of cold air to continue to pound the Southern areas.

Further rain events are likely as this interacts with further tropical moisture from the NW.

Southern areas will do best during this period as an upper ridge over the interior may temporarily dry things a little.

Rainfall : 20 – 30 mm

Forecast Confidence : Medium

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Notes : Obviously the first two weeks are the targets weeks, what happens with these two weeks will determine the following two weeks downstream of that.

We are moving into a very active period with a lot of things going on, and the weather will change quickly. Hence, I will be updating these pages regularly to give subscribers the best information as it occurs.

Long term free lease (forever if that is what is wanted).

7yo, 15.1hh TB mare. Kayla was apparently broken in as a young horse, however I have never tried to put a saddle on her, so she is being advertised as unbroken. She never trialled or raced and is unnamed in the studbook. Her sire is Alberato and her dam is Pleasant Princess.

She has had one beautiful foal. Unfortunately she got placentitis throughout the pregnancy and her colt didn't survive, despite treatment. He was dark with 4 white socks and white on his face, absolutely stunning and she would have another stunning foal I am sure, if someone wanted to try again with her. She went in foal straight away and was served live. Measures would need to be taken to ensure she didn't get placentitis again.

She is a sweet mare who has come a long way. She is easy to keep weight on, easy to worm, catch, shoe and float. Absolutely no kick or bite.

She was a rescue, hence why she is only for lease and not sale, as I don't want her to end up in a bad situation again. Her feet are slowly coming good, but still need regular trimming to maintain.

She would be ideal as a companion (she is always the boss in a herd), broodmare (if given special consideration towards her history) or a project horse, as she moves beautifully.

More than happy to answer any questions about her and email or text photos (they are too large to upload to vichorse)

She will only go to someone very knowledgeable and kind.

Located in Narre Warren North. Contact me on here or on 0437752061.

You could try this little exercise. If you have an arena with letters, try trotting a 20 metre circle or 2 at E or B, at a nice steady pace, then trot a 10 metre circle. If his trot feels steady on the first 10 M circle, or if necessary on the second (or the third) as you are heading back to E or B from the 3/4 line, make sure your shoulders are turned towards the centre of your circle, your outside leg is just a tiny bit back and "think"(or say) canter.
If he pops into canter just ask him to continue a 20M circle from E or B for a round or 2 and then ask him to go back to trot.

If that doesn't work after, say, 2 tries, I'd wait for your next lesson to canter so it doesn't turn into an "issue".

Wanting a dark brown drop noseband in pony size, anyone know where I can order one?

Tried Saddleworld and Horseland and they only seem to come in a cob or full size. I will get one made if I have to, but hoping someone may be able to make some suggestions.

Gah bloody ponies, can't wait til my kids move on to horses, they are little rippers, but finding gear that doesnt cost the earth if it's not 'standard' which seems to be Hanoverian or cavesson nosebands and a snaffle bit is doing my head in. All I want is a drop noseband and maybe a couple more choices in bits than a snaffle or a Kimblewick without having to spend a fortune, rather than a zillion different designs in saddlecloth's,rugs and blingy boots! OK rant over Laughing

I've got a 9' straight load and would like more room... But my WB does take 7' rugs.
It's interesting that people buy angle loads but don't get any more length (some cases less length) than a straightload.

I have finally got a vacancy at an agistment property where I have been on the waiting list for months so I"m so excited. *clapps hands*
But this now means I will need to buy a few extra things as she will be on their "semi full care" package which includes stabling at night.

The owner has asked that I organise what rugs she wears for daytime (paddock) and night time (stable). Daytime is easy as she is currently out 24/7 so I have all the rugs for that, but I'm not sure what to get for the stable rugs? She has a hunter clip and being a clydie cross, needs rugs with a good drop and room around the shoulders.
Can anyone recommend anything?
And I know a lot of the stabled horses wear boots? Is this just for the expensive horses or is it part of the required stable wear?

I have just gone through this dilemma too, having moved agistment and cities - from Melbourne where my horse had paddock agistment with shelter, to Sydney where he is now stabled overnight.

Nighttime, I simply stable my boy for much of the time in a cotton and Skye park woollie (no neck rug). In the middle of winter (and the nights are around 2 or 3 degrees), overnight he would be in his winter heavy. This is the same as I would have used daytime thoughout the Melbourne winter (at night, and in the worst Melbourne winter weather I may have used a woollie also).

Our barn is closed overnight, so the protection from the wind and body warmth of all the other horses means he would be way too hot with anything more. (And I get the point that Australian horses are way over rugged in comparison to many countries.)

He is checked now, in the evening around 9 or 10pm, and he is always warm enough. Plus he has access to lots of hay.

I have a hot horse, so am more concerned about him being too hot, rather than too cold. I do think I should have him rugged more lightly than he is still, so am guilty of self projecting and anthropomorphising, but he is still the most lightly rugged horse in the barn (some agistees heavily rug their horses to keep a summer coat for competing, but I think that means their horses go through winter in an almost permanent sweat).

That said, I may get through this winter without rubbing out his mane from over-heating. I got rid of all my polar fleece neck rugs with the move and would never use one now, especially not for overnight. I also decided to invest in a bucas power turnout (the ones that go from -20 to 20 degrees) so I would not have to worry about over heating so much.

Overall, I have found overnight stabling for my boy has simplified and reduced the number of rugs he needs and I sold a few as well (but then I do have a thing for rugs), in particular the synthetics. Cottons, unlined canvas and a winter woolie are now the rugs I use most.

Have a look around when you changeover and see what works for other people. Don't over invest in new rugs, just reduce a few layers on what you are already using. I am also not a particular fan of doona rugs also (no breathability), but if you do buy one, make sure you don't put any rugs on top.

Also, horse boots and stable wraps.

My instinctive and automatic response is No, No, No. Don't do it. Also, it's not necessary unless you have a particular issue or problem with bad swelling. I have recently started putting magnetic boots on my boy overnight (after a transition period), but only after vet advice and for very specific reasons. Almost no other horse in our barn has boots or stable wraps (including thr GP horses) and unless there was a very specific reason why (and on vet advice), I would not do it. You may also find if you do start, it may be difficult to stop. As a starting point and with the next horse I have stabled, I would never use boots or wraps unless absolutely necessary, and then really 24x7 paddock agistment would be a better long term option, if it's possible.

Enjoy your move.
