Ireland is a class place, beautiful scenery n some lovely old towns/cities. N ye do get the "postcard" thatched cottages with a we old man smoking a pipe with his donkey lol. Like where I live is about a 5min drive and your in Co Donegal. Theres pratically no-where you can go that your not within a 5min drive to the countryside... when it comes to the accent, am pretty mixed, bita townie n a bita country... Dublin accent is fairly nice, don't go to cork, youll not understand anyone haha. I have been told that even I talk while fast so it might take you a while to know exactly what wur on about lol I really wish yous the best of luck! ÁDH MÓR I would def try forwardn your CV's to law firms and universities, any jobs that are going they want people with experience so yous might be in luck!! All the best

...look up grianan fort donegal on google, I live down the street from it, just gives an idea that even if you move to a city your still close to amazing old historic sites...plus the walls in derry.. we get the name "the walled city" sometimes..

[QUOTE=alexischristina;1425624]So when do you guys say is the latest to clip? Not to steal the thread... but my coach suggested I body clip by appendix because he's still SUPER furry and we're already showing and he gets so so sweaty.[/QUO

You can clip at anytime, but earlier the better, clip right now.

A horse kept in a barn isn't exposed to the daylight hours like an outside horse. Depending on how far north or south one is, there's always the day that the horses really start blowing their coats. Florida horses will blow them sooner than Minnesota horses. My arab would be completly shed out for three weeks only and it would become evident that his winter had started. He was in A1 health.

Simple solution, if your horse is in a barn then simple answer is to use "daylight" bulbs in the light fittings. Daylight bulbs simulate the sunlight and are used to treat those people with seasonal affective disorder. They cost about £5. I keep my ponies "under lights" untill after the major championships in october. So they come in before it starts going dark and the lights are on untill 10pm they are on a timer and come on at 5.30am

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
