Re: The VENT Thread

Mom who is also at the same nursing home dad was, did great. She's recovering from a stroke, but had direct instruct...

Re: The VENT Thread

My dad does not have to struggle anymore with Alzheimer's. He lost his battle early this morning, 3 days before his 89th birthday.
Love you forever dad.

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Thank you Sparrow Castle & Nicole. Quite a disappointment in sale price, but not much racing on dam side. I hope he is in
good hands and does his best.

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Hip #441 at the F/T Midlantic Sale is a white colt by Honorable Dillon. Would be great if any members
at the sale can get a picture of him. Thanks!

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.
