Am selling my Peter Horobin Liberty 17" Black Dressage Saddle. It has large adjustable / removable knee blocks. It is 4.5 years old and in excellent condition, no marks, scratches, dings or over wearing, Girth points both sides good.

Medium gullet in the saddle and can be easily changed by a saddler or Peter Horobin himself.

Am selling fulling mounted with Bates double stitched leathers , Korsteel Irons and Equi Wool girth 75cm as well as the cotton Peter Horobin saddle cover.

Saddle has had minimal use in last 8 months due to unsound horse, as horse is now retired this saddle is sadly surplus to my needs.

The details of the Liberty can be found on the Peter Horobin website, this is a lovely comfortable saddle of high quality and buyer will not be disappointed.

Price realistically to sell in today's market $2500 fully mounted.

Please call myself or pm for any further details. Photos to be added to add on Monday 31st Aug, Saddle located in Mt Martha, can email photos now if requested.

Our old dog had Addisons Disease and required human drugs to keep her alive. Instead of paying over $100 per month to buy the drugs from our vet, he happily wrote out prescriptions which we filled at our chemist, for less than 1/4 of the price. Saved us a small fortune over 13 years. And our dog became very well known at our chemist!


Our vet also did this to try to keep our costs down for ongoing treatments with expensive drugs.

Hi everyone Smile
I'm looking for agistment for one horse in the Ocean Grove, Leopold, Drysdale area. I know of all the bigger ones but would love to find a smaller private agistment that has a secure arena to ride in.

Our little dog was on Vetoryl tablets. We just purchased a box for her but sadly she passed away in her sleep last week. I feel bad for throwing the tablets out and wondered if I could donate or return to the vet for maybe one of their pensioner customers to use to help them with costs.

I've taken such meds back to the vet they came from, in Queensland they gave a refund which I didn't expect & recently in melbourne they just took them back to dispose or redistribute if appropriate. We lost our Sarah a year ago today. I'm sorry for your loss.

I think it helps with the sadness of loosing them that with helping another person in the same situation helps ease the pain a little.

I just needed to have a bit of a rant and some advice on what I should do.

One of my male friends and I (who to me is like a brother) spend a fair bit of time together, I'll see him at least twice a week, mostly because he works in the same suburb as my house, his cousin lives with me and my boyfriend as well which is how we met, and we often spend hours just chatting and mucking around. Today we were chatting after he and his girlfriend had a fight she has apparently decided that he spends way too much time at my house and she is uncomfortable with our relationship.
We'd planned on driving up to pick his new puppy up next weekend, it's a 6 hour drive each way and we invited her but she didn't want to sit in a car for 12 hours which is fair enough, but now she's saying she's uncomfortable with me and him going together even though his brother is coming with us.

I just don't know what to do, I've been friends with him for 5 years, I counted her as one of my close friends as well even before they got together. I don't know if I should tell him I can't go with him this weekend, even though we've had the plan set for a few weeks to keep her happy?
I just can't understand where this is coming from, I've been happily with my boyfriend for 6 and a half years.
I don't know if it's a maturity thing, me and my friend are both mid twenties where as she's turning 21 at the end of this year.

Honestly I'm a little bit insulted by this, I even made a point of asking my boyfriend what he thought of it all and he has no issues with us spending time together.
I guess I'm just a bit confused haha Confused

Edited to add: I asked him what I should do, and his response was that neither of us are doing anything wrong so she needs to get the hell over it.

isn't it hard when people don't understand that you are just friends just cos you are male and female.

I had a great mate, he came riding with me all the time, he grew up with my hubby and moved away for a few years and then when he came back home, I met him, we hadn't been married for long, but hubby was fine with us riding out together, we were all early 20's.

it was my workmates at work, ewwww you are having an affair already, what do you get up to riding out all day?

Gave us the ****s

If he's happy to go with you to get the dog, then just go.
Friends are friends no matter what age/sex etc

Ridiculous. I had a male friend cut me off because his girlfriend wasn't comfortable with our relationship - to make it even worse, I'm a lesbian! Laughing Really goes to show how deep-rooted the idea that you can't be friends with someone of the opposite gender because intimacy/affection = attraction. Rolls Eyes

Don't sacrifice your friendship for that silliness. It might be a good idea for someone to have a chat with the girlfriend.

Step away from the computer,
See I see both sides to this... in one instance, I can see where she is coming from. My boyfriend went on a 6hr one way road trip not long ago with another male friend and a female friend. Now I was uncomfortable with this not knowing the female friend very well however I trust him. So I didn't stop him going, he was aware of how I felt.
Then I also see where you are coming from, you're both in a happy relationship and she should see that you are good friends with him and that's all.
I guess as an outsider looking in, I see things lately based on the saying 'how would you feel in this situation?' Then make your decision on that I suppose.

Troppo. Loco. Round the twist.
Don't change things it is her issue and she needs to deal with it. My sisters best mate is male and they've been friends since school, gone through a lot of ups and downs including relationship issues from her boyfriends and his girlfriends. Her husband realised very early on in their relationship that here was no threat and they are great mates, actually had him as groomsman at the wedding, was some discussion about who's side he'd be standing on. Laughing

I believe if you can't trust your partner it's not a good relationship, she is not going to last, don't wreck a friendship when you aren't doing anything wrong and your partner is comfortable with it.

Step away from the computer,
I had a Nissan Navara D40 when I was riding and towing horses. Honestly, I couldn't say a bad word about it. It towed like about dream and I never had any part let me down. It had nearly 300,000kms on it and only then was it starting to need general wear and tear repairs. My dad works at a Nissan dealership so I guess that helped with maintenance of my car.
I will however be looking at getting another 4WD within the next 12 months and honestly would consider getting another.
The only thing I didn't like much was the turning circle in it. But that's all.

One place I agisted at, told me that I had to get rid of the mud (on gate/fence line) because it was unsightly.

Middle of winter and on a hill slope left me scratching my head on how to fix that. Solution.... put dirty stable bedding (being wee, poo, hay and wood shavings) on top.

They loved it and thought it looked fantastic... Confused

We have a no dogs and no smoking rule at my agistment.

Also, there's a $5 per item charge if you leave any of your stuff laying around, including poop. It's amazing how carful everyone is to make sure the place is neat and tidy before they leave now that there's a dollar value attached to it!!

I have been very lucky with the places I have agisted at in the past. One had an indoor and we were charged for lights which I think is fair enough, we could come and go as we pleased, and weekends were a no go during the day as there were lessons on. Again, fair enough. I guess I have the opinion of, they are letting you use their property and grass, come and go as you want and I don't believe it's too much to ask to follow a few simple rules. Yes there are some funny ones, but everyone is different and has different ways of doing things.
Though I much say, I loved it when we moved to our own property Smile

One had an indoor and we were charged for lights which I think is fair enough, we could come and go as we pleased, and weekends were a no go during the day as there were lessons on. Again, fair enough. I guess I have the opinion of, they are letting you use their property and grass, come and go as you want and I don't believe it's too much to ask to follow a few simple rules. Yes there are some funny ones, but everyone is different and has different ways of doing things.
Though I much say, I loved it when we moved to our own property Smile

Most people ride on the weekend, what a stupid rule.


It was a riding Centre, so I don't believe it was a stupid rule.


Horseriding is the most fun you can have with your pants on... Smile
