Used to have ride and drive types - cobs and Natives - and friend had a Shire x Irish Draught - a lovely chap - so gentle.  I also used to ride friend's Haflinger - she used to pull one of the carriages on Yarmouth seafront - totally bombproof

Roses too high above fence

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 20:51

That looks like a climbing rose, so with due respect to Artjak, I wouldn't reduce the height in that manner as you'll lose the blooms - those long canes need training horizontally - that will stimulate the growth of sideshoots which are the ones that produce the blooms.

My dream was to ride through Doone Valley on Exmoor, and about 3 years ago I did it!  Fantastic!

I wouldn't mind a day out with this lot though! http://www.cumbrianheavyhorses.com/

Are these cabbage worm eggs

Caterpillars have legs -  eggs don't.  Flowerbird says the things on her camellia don't have legs.

 

Cabbage white butterfly caterpillars are only likely to be on plants from the brassica family, cabbages, cauliflowers, kale etc and  a few ornamentals e.g. nasturtiums.
