Unstoppable, ungaggable, unzippable
I'll be moving with my horses to Merricks/Balnarring/Hastings area in the next month. I have no idea who is who or where to find anything.

Firstly the important things. Can anyone make suggestions of where to find the following.....

Equine Vet
A GOOD farrier for shoes and trims
Cheaper feed stores in the area
Riding clubs that have regular rallies and will accept associate members.

Any other horsey or non horsey info about the area you'd like to add would be most appreciated too.

One of my fur babies.....

●Sponsorship applications being taken now●

The Barn and Kennel is looking for two lucky people to join the team as a sponsored horse rider and a dog handler.

This exciting opportunity will be given to those who can prove they are dedicated to their sport and can successfully show off our business while doing what they love!

The sponsorship package available does not include financial support, however it does include free products relevant to the success of one horse/rider and dog/handler combination (including rugs, beds, supplements, grooming products, leather items, leads, collars/halters + lots more) as well as up to 60% off other items needed for other horses/pets in the family that we stock/can order in (excluding made to order items).

In return, we ask that you showcase our business at any given opportunity and display any decals, products etc provided to you. We also do believe word of mouth and social media are two of the best ways to successfully advertise a business in todays world so people with the ability to 'spread the word' and share our posts via Facebook (for example) would be preferred.

Any one of any age, level of competition or experience may apply. We do ask that you already participate regularly in your chosen sport/discipline. We are not just after someone competing at the top levels, as long as you are dedicated that's all that matters.

Applications must be sent to thebarnandkennel@hotmail.com to be considered. Please include details of yourself and your equine or canine partner and your discipline/s, why you should be chosen, as well as a brief run down of your calendar, any past wins/places, and photos.

Hello! i am looking for an experienced horse trainer/ worker. I have an educated Horse (Previously competed high levels in eventing with EV) who has been out of work for the past year. I haven't been able to ride him due to uni commitments and moving to Melbourne Sad I have now realised that he is to good of a horse to be sitting in the paddock and should be ridden and by someone who has time for him. Im looking for a trainer or horse worker to ride my horse and potentially compete on him, so he is ready for sale. Im after someone who has experience in eventing, or dressage work with jumping skills Smile I'm located in South Gippsland, i would be looking for Gippsland area but happy for him to go more Melbourne way (caulfield).

Please let me know if you have any recommendations Smile

Thank you!

l have many tons of Malt Combings and a steady supply of quality Oaten Hay. ln order to use the Combings l need to mix it wet with chaff, a local farmer and former horse trainer swears by his Hammer mill and sold off his chaff cutter years ago.
His horses won many races and his Show sheep have dominated the Royal Melbourne Show in years gone by. My horses are mostly just Rescues that were heading to Echuca but l would like them to get the most out of what l feed them, they have limited grass, one horse to 6 acres of unimproved, sandy pasture.
l have the option to buy a Hammer Mill or a Chaff Cutter, what would you buy? Smile

I have been given the specs and spoken to the property owner of a Agistment property on palmers rd, that sounds great and closer to home; which is a big factor for me.

I believe this may be the only Agistment place on that rd and would like any reviews of the place as I want to make sure it's the right place for me and my horses

Anyone had a horse injure the frog of hoof and how long did it take to heal? I've had hoof injuries before of varying degrees and anything from coronet band will take 6mths to grow out, butt one of my boys sliced half his frog away about 4 weeks ago and a small section is still an open wound, same size as it was originally. It's healthy and he's sound again, any ideas how long it will take to resolve?

We are currently upgrading to a gooseneck float. We have done a lots of research and have narrowed it down to 3 companies. One is Attitude floats. Does anyone in Vic have one, what is your opinion on them. Happy to receive PM regarding any negatives. I can't afford to make a mistake when we make this purchase. If someone has one in Victoria are you happy for us to come and have a look at it. We want to get underneath and have a good look at it structurally. We will be towing 4 horses and safety is number 1 above looks and bells and whistles.

Anyone have a cheap way of moving sand from one side of arena too the other.

Arena harrowed regularly with home made harrow- but due to the slight slope it tends to graduate to one side, especially after rain

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to get some feedback on an issue I am experiencing with my TB Gelding.
He has had the Tie Back operation a couple of years ago from his racing days and has been off the track for the last year. In this time though he coughs a lot. We have changed his feed with expert advice but I find that he is still coughing at the start of rides and sometimes during.
The severity of the cough can be different from just clearing to must stop and really cough.
Just wondering if anyone else has this issue?
