Re: 2018 foals

It was great to watch La Verdad's foaling. I do think there were too many people in that stall while she was in heavy labor. Trying to pet her on her face and surrounding her with 10 people was a bit much while she was in heavy labor. And it doesn't take 3 people to towel dry a foal, and having it's...

Re: 2018 foals

I'm wondering if La Verdad is in labor in the other stall because I see a lot of people walking around the stall and a photographer is there. Hope things are going okay. They gray mare does show signs of discomfort at times too, maybe they'll have 2 foals tonight.

Re: 2018 foals

It looks like StreuFex, or some kind of broken down straw compound. All of Ramsey's mares foal on it, and people have asked about it a few times on their Facebook. They almost always give a thorough explanation of what it is and why they use it, but I am lazy and tired and it's too late to go look ...

Pure ignorance and lack of responsibility. These owners should never be able to own a racehorse again!

Re: Fire at San Luis Rey!?

Just learned my friend had to put down her 32 year old Appy just before Christmas. Wow, you say, yeah, she did everything for this horse, and he was
in good condition for his age. Kudos to her though, not too many horses get up there in age. RIP Chance.

Re: Fire at San Luis Rey!?

Sounds like the worst is happening at San Luis Rey Downs, reports saying 75% of the barns are gone and many many horses have perished.
Don't know how I'm gonna sleep tonight with this image on my mind.

Re: In memoriam 2017

29 horses at a boarding stable died in the Creek Fire near Sylmar, CA. And there are fears that the toll may end up higher as so many people were forced to suddenly flee the huge, fast-moving wildfire. :cry: https://patch.com/california/agourahills/s/gaz1v/dozens-of-horses-killed-in-creek-fire Oh m...

Re: Keeneland January 2018

Just started looking at Keeneland January and hip #3, Dance Play, only 2 years old and was bred! I hate to see this! Obviously her body wasn't
ready to conceive as she is not in foal.

Re: TBC Breeders Cup Watch Party/Discussion Thread

I'm already stressing out. Looks like only the Classic is televised on NBC, all the other races are on the NBCSN channel which I don't get. They're streaming for free in HD on the breederscup website and the breederscup official facebook page. Thank you all! Now maybe I can get some sleep tonight! ...

Haven't posting in a long time but maybe you'll remember my saga last Oct being ambulanced to Westchester Medical and 2 days later having a tumor removed from my neck and having my neck fused with 2 rods. The tumor gave me multiple myeloma. So then I got a blood clot 2 days after leaving, so I had t...
