Re: Border Run is Thirty-One!

In the midst of another Santa Anita-less Saturday I thought I’d give you this alliteration. We lost our little Welsh Pony mare, Opie, on Wednesday. She was 36 so now Border is the senior member of the herd. The sun is out and the birds are chirping— not a given during early-Spring in western Washin...

After all, it can't be profitable to continuously sell unsound horses.... right....?
Then again, horse traders have a long, long reputation of sharp practice, that probably goes back to when the horse was first domesticated.

Re: Santa Anita 2019

They don't. It's the drive to present unblemished scans for big money babies at the sales. Ask most any breed-to-race owner and they'll tell you most of their best homebreds wouldn't have passed a vet scan. I think using it on horses <4 years old should be criminal. I'm also upset about not disclos...

This is not fun. Wanna have a seizure... you can have mine.
Moved Sunday, my med schedule is off. Daylight savings doesn't help, either. Just the timing on meds has me screwed up.
Major trembles.
All the best for getting things back under control soon, EP2!

Anyways it would be super cool if we, collectively, could go back to talking about how we could have prevented all these horses from dying.
<sigh> Does something in this whole mess reminds you of "bait and switch"" Apparently not going to happen, more's the pity.
