The red and black ones are the shires deluxe large, they are mahoosive, 1.75” holes and under £12 on eBay (shop around there’s lots of sellers charging more) I also like the shires 60” haylage nets, huge and cheap (£8 or something silly) and with slightly bigger 2” holes.I adore him.
On another matter, where do you get your giant Haynes for your graze boxes? They are such a good idea to prevent wastage
Sounds greatNiko’s coming on in leaps and bounds, all 4 feet rasped today, he’s much better at holding the hinds up for longer now and there’s never any question on the fronts, a big difference to 6 weeks ago when the farrier barely managed to get the fronts trimmed with lots of hopping about. He also doesn’t run every time I so much as look at him when he’s eating anything, he happily carries on chomping now.
It's good that you can spot all this an know what's genuine and what isn't.It's always a couple of months in when they get their feet under the table that they start trying their luck, and here we are in week 6-7 and it's started;
Night before last my friend was stood at the gate chatting to me and Niko sidles over and is all nosey, sniffing and nuzzling, next thing I see is his mouth right the way around her bicep, luckily she's used to horses and corrected him just as he started to bite down so she didn't get the full force of it. Then last night he was in a bit of a grump come dinner time, had a real pop at Dan (he often gives a half hearted chase but he landed him a bite) then when I was picking his feet he swiped at me, not an 'I'm unbalanced and need my foot back', not 'I'm unsure', it was 'I don't want to' cow kick! little shit!
I know it's totally normal, especially for a 2 year old, it just made me chuckle just how predictable they are.
