 Lost Dog Found –

This chap appeared at our house in the campo Just outside Iznate on New Year’s Day!
We have checked but he has not been chipped and hasn’t a collar.
Does anyone know where he lives, if so please  contact Joanna and Keith on 665462765


Comment on previous article    I was surprised to read yesterday’s article on sweet itch in Horses  by Steven Rowle. I think the article is misleading and trying to make people believe that healing will fix sweet itch. That of course is incorrect information. I think the article should be mentioned again just in case anyone out there believes what he is saying. He goes on to say at the end that the horse still has sweet itch, so why start with all the ‘pretence’ of help being at hand in healing? Also horses do not wear ‘jackets’, even children know that.    I am a qualified equine professional, accredited by the British Horse Society.                                                        I am not sure what Steven Rowles equine qualifications are ?                                          I don’t write articles on healing.  Kind regards Terry Booth  El Morche

Solution for Electricity supply problem 

Many times, when there is a storm (thunder/lightning), the supply will often trip out, it is always the main switch (RCD/RCB) “Interruptor diferencial in Spain” in the consumer unit that trips.  When you are away, you need a continuous service in fridge, alarm, swimming pool, that requires a continuous electricity supply.   In this case, it is possible to install a Self-reclosing RCCB to ensure service continuity.   Call or email for no obligation quote and more information:   Oscar Pinazo                                              ​Torrox     605 59 00 11 (Also WhatsApp)
