  1. Easy advice mate... DONT! lol
  2. Dont get all in awe of the Shetland Islands brochures... trust me when you are out in the pissin rain and hurricanes.. you will wish that you had thrown the brochures in the bin and decided not to bother moving at all... Dont expect trees.. there are very few... seemingly the sheep eat them... thats probably because in the winter the parks are that weet that they reach for something dry.... If you like driving... great.. but alas the price of fuel up here... £1.21p a litre for diesel.. well.. you wont be driving a lot! Always take a change of clothes with you when you go out.. because guaranteed.. it might be sunny when you step out the door but by the time you have driven to the bottom of the road.. it will be pissin doon. I could go on all night... but alas.. I wont...
  3. yeah there are sportsbikes around.. I have seen quite a few.. its just getting to the weather where all bikes are put to bed till next season...
  4. I must say I am extremely pissed off as I was coming up the north road today and the police overtook me and went into the other lane and sprayed me with stone chips and chipped my bloody vehicle. OUT OF ORDER! They didnt have their blue lights on either...
  5. Dont know .. but poopin in it might!
  6. I had someone at the door that wanted to sell me jet wash things .. he had a silver van... and an irish accent...
  7. Whether it goes to a custodial sentence or not, they should never be allowed near animals ever... there is no excuse for what they did...
  8. Gracie has gone back to Orkney vets bill was astromomical and there was nothing they could do with her here..as not got proper facilities to operate. I will miss her.... Got new horse!
  9. I get the horse and hound every thursday and read that article... its crap how things can turn out.. something that can seem quite friendly like letting someone have a peerie ride on your horse can have catastrophic consequences. I have a new horse now and with him being 17.1hh not many folk could get on him anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. @Frances144: You are probably right hun, shame but you are probably right!... just about says it all doesnt it! (*** mod edit - excess quoting removed ***)
  11. Probably best to put the sheep there, since they arent being groomed, ridden, patted, made a fuss off, etc...
  12. Whit sharn.. its a sport here like any other... I dont think reestit horse would go down too well.. and I am quite sure that somerfield could come up with the goodies when it comes to a bit of lamb!
  13. Nah I think that he is stuck at the under the goolies lift! And then he might get stuck at the belly lift!
  14. I think that it is about time equestrianism is taken seriously in shetland.. and I dont mean a wee patch of grass next to the clickimin.. at the end of the day, there are more and more horses coming here and it is getting as important as football, hockey, netball and all the other sports that are played here... it should be recognised as a sport and more provisions for grazing should be met... I have never seen a place so anal when it comes to allowing horses on land.. I would have had a nice house down culswick with nice stables and my life would have been peachy but could I get grazing... could I frack! sheep? and what joy do sheep bring? can children get hours of fun out of a sheep? and when it comes to "ruining fences" ... I have never seen a horse "ruin a fence" yet.. I have however seen sheep lean and lie against fences... fleece lying all over the place and the girse covered in sheep sharn.. aye... well if I ever get a croft.. or a piece of land, I know what I will be having on it! and if you want flowers... grow them in your garden... not in perfectly good parks that animals can graze on! And before anyone says it.. well there are plenty of shetland ponies... they are looked upon as "working the land" because they are being bred in most cases... so hence they are allowed on "croft land".... If I ever win the lottery.. I will build a big equestrian centre for all the people who are finding it tough to get grazing, quality riding, Riding for the disabled, christmas parties and fancy dress for the kids and facilities in a safe, atmosphere.. because quite frankly a peerie corner of a park at a roundabout.. its pathetic! whilst what does all the other sports get??? look at the clickimin.. at the facilities for every other sport.. and what does equestrianism get.. hmmmm ... not to mention the folk that complain that riders have to go on the roads.. well give them something better then... i.e. indoor school, outdoor all weather floodlit riding arenas.. they have it on the mainland... why not here.. ?
