With input prices rising like they a 50 % increase will struggle to cover costs and on arable land wheat is looking a lot better option than grass for livery's. what will horse owners be able to afford.

It is a good question not one that can be answered.

We have customers I have no idea how they find the money now but they always seem too.
Others have plenty of money but will disappear owing us.

I can see horse numbers declining but only slowly as one of our customers demonstrated when her pony finally died
She was 34 and never remembered a day without the horse it was her 4th birthday present.
She was never going to sell it or have it put down, people like her will find the money for hay.

Today's four year olds may not be given a horse though.

I've said all along this is a econimic war against the West from Putin ,

Dunna worry though I'm covered for this year (y)
Yes but a lot of Ukraine land will take years to be planted again due to the damage/spent/ unexploded bombs etc all over it and Russian farmers cannot get any spare parts etc so the west may well have to do a Post war German ww11 airlift type like what happened of wheat/Spuds etc to Russia next winter to stop them all from starving to death!

What with the russkiess on the warpath!! I foresee very little wheat seeing open water from Ukraine
Yep i agree with you but Frank seems convinced that will not be the case.

And even if they do manage to sell a lot of wheat onto the open market it may pull prices a bit but that drop will be eaten up with much higher energy and haulage costs by next winter!

The horsey folks will be fine. Without fail, every year, there's someone flogging round bale hay on the local FB page for £10-15 / bale. Hay making is a quaint hobby for a lot of folks with bit of land.

I wonder how this lot are fairing, are John Deere breaking US sanctions? Got to be all sorts of pressure being applied.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
