Liz and Hugh Somerville BVSc Cert AVP (ESO) MRCVS Advanced Practitioner in Equine Surgery – Orthopaedics give their thoughts on supplements, the good ones, the bad ones and making sure your horse is safe.
Hello all my name is Choccy and my mum says I’m 25 years old but obviously she is lying and I’m still in my teens! I have been lucky enough to be chosen as one of the Loch Leven Equine Practice Golden Oldies, although please don’t let me have to meet Hugh because I really don’t like male vets! I’m super excited to be allowed to give a monthly blog on all my adventures which thankfully my Mum still lets me have.
We had the most incredible response to our search for a special Golden Oldie to support over the next year. It has been such a tough decision, we are super lucky to have an amazing bunch of Golden Oldies that we care for which made the decision even more difficult After cutting the initial applications down to a shortlist of 5 we simply couldn’t chose one. So we have decided to support three!
We will share more about them individually in the next few weeks but here is a brief introduction from their owners Victoria Dewar with Choccy, Paul Sargent with Flicka and Ailsa Fossett with Lorna
I love Christmas and all that it brings, but this Christmas feels a little extra special, because for the first time in a long time I get to spend it with my loved ones (and yes, I mean my horses too!).
Flash has barely put one of his big hooves wrong since our last update, in fact he has been pretty phenomenal and definitely completely back to the Flashy boy I know! We have mainly been out on the Showjumping circuit proving that cobs really can - it may be getting a little addictive although we are still busy trying to channel our inner dressage diva at home!
So Flash and I are definitely back on track since the last blog I wrote…..finally! We have been out and about and managed a lovely double clear at Hopetoun Horse Trials and Forgandenny, dressage still needing some work but both of us feeling back to our normal and positive selves which has been much more enjoyable.
So we have been quite busy since my last blog! We have managed to get out and about to a few shows where ID has been jumping consistent double clears around British Novices and has just been a big dude!
I’m not sure writing a blog for social media is really my thing (I’d much rather be writing a referral report) but I’m going to give it a go!
Hey it’s Stacey and Marlo and our latest blog is about our second ever Royal Highland Show experience.
So I’m starting to wonder if anybody has fallen off as much as me between the months of March and June?!
