    hi I've just became owner of 2 beautiful horsefield. The previous owner were neglecting them so I've took them on. anyone got any advice on what's best for them and how I can tell if they are male or female etc .

    i have done some major research before I received them. but what the previous owner telt me is completely different to what I've read. Like I've read topsoil is the best but they used newspaper, they fed them 3 times a day and they'e never hibernated or ever been washed down. Also one has a weird mouth. I've looked it up and it looks like a undershot in the bottom part. it eats well and doesn't seem to bother him (i am going to get it checked out). she said they are both female but they look male ?
