    Surprised no one has posted about his race today, that was the most amazing flat race I ever seen and probably the best horse I have ever seen, just one could argue now that he's not the best horse in the world.

    I am looking for a new dog and ideally want an adult/young dog who needs a new home. Always had collies and still have one but she's 16 and obviously slowing down.

    Willie mullins ?

    Just musing after watching the racing yesterday and today, his horses are in a different league, the 4 winners were unchallenged and look more or less unbeatable. What's he doing that nobody else is ? Must be hard for the British trainers to know that come the big races they have no chance ?

    any experiences with pyometra

    My collie has pyometra and I feel guilty that I didn't notice anything until she was very unwell. Even with hindsight yesterday she seemed fine and I woke this morning to a very ill dog that went downhill by the hour. She never went off her food or seemed different in any way although I imagine...

    Dangerous Dogs Act

    Just read that the 6 month girl killed last week was attacked by an American Pitbull, no great surprise there, sadly. There seems to be more and more reports of serious attacks in the media and considering the act is now over 20 years old, it clearly isn't working. Surely more needs to be done...

    Let's be blunt .....

    Was going to reply on the national fatality thread but it's getting so bogged down with statistics that I thought I'd start another.... It is unimportant what the figures are, they are low, deaths happen, it's sad but it's part of owning horses no matter what they do. We breed horses...
