Silk Racing has their own YouTube channel... :mrgreen:

Amongst the vids is one of Almond Eye from the first week of February when she's been "resting" at the farm. "Resting." :lol:

Re: 2019 Foals

General question - do most farms keep their broodmares shod instead of barefoot? Does it help with the added weight/strain on the feet?

Re: 2019 Foals

@Tachyon, I came across this on Facebook. Do I understand it correctly? Ginger Punch was bred to Chrome and she had a filly? I thought Ginger Punch was in Japan. Was she shipped back here to be bred to Chrome? If so, I'm delighted a mare of her quality was bred to him. Chrome has been receiving som...

Re: 2017 Names

Oh yeah, I mean Good on Paper is a clever moniker too, I just feel that in this particular case the clever name the filly already had was cleverer than the rename. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Re: Random News about Breeding and Breeders

What I just don't get is, basically, they admitted that the dates were wrong and they knew they were wrong. So then how can you say claiming that dates were false is "without merit"...? I mean the suit itself seems like a pretty messy Gordian knot, but the underlying facts of the case haven't reall...

Huh. I mean, Winged Victory might've maybe been a little bit ambitious, but... it's clever and a lot more interesting than Good on Paper. :roll:

tachyon can correct the tweet translation if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's Silk Bom Ba Ye (JPN).
