Welcome to Horse Caring - For people who love helping to care for horses
There's a wealth of information on horses here. Horse Facts, Tips, How to Measure A Horse For A Rug, Name The Body Parts Of An Horse, Farriers, Vets, Insurance Companies.
We have a list of names and you can also add the name of your farrier and vet you use and the area to help others find good farrier and vet.
You can find our Worming programme and find information on the worms that infect your horse. Keeping up to date on worming.
Why do you need a Dentist for your horse? A lot of people over look a dentist and do not realise just how important a dentist is and the health problems caused through not having their teeth checked. Many horses struggle when the bit is in their mouths and most of the time it's the teeth that need treatment. It will cause sores and pain to the horse. People think it is just the horse playing up and all it takes is a visit from the dentist to put it right.
How many teeth does an horse have? And do you know the name of their teeth? Find out here. Read on health problems, choke, colic, plants, there is so much to learn on horses here.
If you would like to know the work we do with the horse's, myself, my helpers and the beautiful horse's, then please read the About Us page. It is full of information about how each horse came to stay with me and how I have started to make homemade crafts to sell which help towards the horse's.
Always remember....... A horse is not just for riding. There is a lot more involved!
Christmas is coming!!!
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas! Hope all your dreams and wishes come true........
It’s the night before Christmas, we’re out in the barn
Blanketing horses to keep them all warm
They’re eating their dinners, tucked in cozy stalls
Not aware that it’s Christmas or any special day at all
They can dream of spring pastures from their pine-scented beds
No visions of sugarplums dance in their heads
But we people are thinking of merry parties and such
Maybe feeling a little sad at missing so much
This season is special but the horses don’t know
We’ve got work to do before we can go
We finish the chores and head on inside
To get ready for dinner and our own yuletide
It’s nearly midnight, the carols are sung
I remember a story I was told when I was young
How at midnight on Christmas Eve
The creatures of the barnyard can speak to us with ease
I am called to the barn, I wade through the rain
I know I must go, I can’t really explain
I slide open the door, pause for a while
Then slowly walk down that dully lit aisle
A nicker from Casey, a wink from JD
Sleepy old Alibi waking to see
Tucker rustling his bedding, a snort soft and light
Each horse gave a greeting as I walked through the night
I thought about parties bright lit and warm
The ones we don’t go to ’cause we have the barn
And vacations and holidays that we don’t get
When we’re working long hours for bills to be met
Walking all the way to the end of the aisle
I stop to stroke Bonnie, it brings me a smile
She snuffles my face, hot breath on my skin
It starts me to thinking about my horses, my kin
I could be at parties with laughter and mirth
But where I am right now is the best place on Earth.

This site is dictated to 5 wonderful horse's. They all have their own story to tell.
Paris, the oldest and mother to, Pip, then there is Rosie, who is mother to, Ollie and last but not least, Milly.
They all have their own page with photos, some with videos and how they came to me and how they are now. To read their story just click on the name of the horse or go to the menu above and you will be taken to their page.
My mission is to build a mobile field shelter for the horses, hopefully before the snow arrives. The agency of the field said it has to be a mobile shelter, which makes the cost higher then a normal feild shelter! My aim is to raise enough cash to make sure the horses stay dry and sheltered over the winter months.
My 2nd mission is to get water butts in the field. There is no water supply in the field.
We rely on a lady who lives at the back of the field and she supplies the water for them. She is amazing and a God sent. She has a love of horses. If we can raise enough cash to get a couple of water butts, it will help greatly to have water on hand without having to bother the lovely lady all the time.
