    There is no discussion about cancelling WEG; there isn't even any official discussion about moving WEG at this time. What it does say, is the organizers need to come up with a whole lot of money!

    Clark won't be able to gallop glen during quarantine, but since it's only 42 hour I'm sure they'll be able to plan the gallop schedule around that.

  14. Horses overfilling paddle waterers. Solutions?

    After spending too much money having auto waters installed (lol), they fill way faster than the horses can drink, so they spill 10-20 gallons in their stalls every day. It's been 6 months and it's...
