Re: The VENT Thread

I've been fostering dogs for a rescue the last few months. Today, I gotta go pick up the one that got adopted on Saturday because the adopter claims we lied about her being potty trained. In the two weeks I had this dog, she did not have any peeing accidents inside. The adopter seems more concerned ...

Re: The VENT Thread

Good grief. I've spent my fair share of time in hospitals (to be fair, they're almost all children's hospitals) and never quite that level of incompetence. Is there another hospital you can go to?

Re: 2019 Names

In the Shallows - f. War Front x A Star is Born (IRE) - this name is clearly a nod toward the song from the latest iteration of the movie and I LOVE IT.

Definitely like the nod to Foal Patrol.... better than Bird Empire or Bird Maker. I hope they do Foal Patrol again next year.
Bird Patrol died sometime after she was named, sadly. JC has her as "Horse reported dead before registration was completed." :cry:

I know horses generally do OK in cold weather, but doesn't a 21-year-old champion deserve a bit more shelter than an open shed? :oops:
I'm guessing she also has an inside stall and this is while she's turned out. Man, I can't believe she's 21.

Yeah, try to stay away from that first tracheostomy. They tend to have friends. I've had three or four. One nitwit in a white coat was mumbling on my last stay, I heard that word mumble by. Told him to ask whichever member of the herd of drs did my last one what my throat looks like. It's why I'm o...

Re: Chad Brown has been ordered to pay more than $1 million ....

Even after reading it I sincerely doubt Chad himself is doing payroll. Does the president of your company do it? Someone he hired likely did it for him. Nowhere did I say it was an ooops. Someone was clearly negligent. How backstretch workers are treated in my opinion is looooow. Had to offset the ...

Re: The VENT Thread

The problem I've run into is the lack of big-picture thinking and coordination among the practitioners. Yep, it's called "practicing" medicine because they're truly just practicing on us. They make a diagnosis based on their particular specialty even if it explains only one of the symptoms and they...

Re: TV Discussion Thread

The Tyrion Explains It All was a little tiresome, but otherwise, it was as satisfying an ending as we were going to have. The build up to the last season was so immense, there was no way it was going to exceed or even meet expectations. Drogon and Ghost were the best parts of the episode, though. Al...

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Saw somewhere earlier that War Front started out at like either $17K or $7K. It seems like War Front doesn't have that many sons that "go on" and keep the form they had as 2/3 year olds on the surface (and from memory), but that's probably largely due to the climate of retiring to stud ASAP. I've f...

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

I think the biggest shocker isnt War Front siring a Triple Crown race winner... its a Sadler's Wells mare producing a War Front one LOL Bahahaha this is true. However, the female family also produced Aldebaran (multiple G1 winner on dirt) in addition to a bunch of turf stakes winners, so it's not s...
