Re: Horse poo frozen!

One of the horses went of colour this week with what seem to be a pain in the gut,we started her on a bran mash and now is well again.I think she got this from eating snow and ice. Stabled at night with two rugs so thay should be warm.Hard work poo picking,i use a potato grap.
