    I always keep the JC names as show names (but I've never had a really bad one to deal with), but since all my OTTBs have come sight-unseen straight off the track, I've never known what their barn...

    It's been a strange year for birds on our property here in East TN. Many of the normal species haven't shown up, and there's birds here now that are unusual for this time of year.

    Absent: wrens,...
