  1. Yada yada

    My first visit to a COTH slaughter thread in almost five years, and the conversation/dialogue has not advanced nor refined. Not one iota.

    I saw a two year old zonkey at a local auction a couple of months' back. It had a $2000 reserve and didn't sell - high bid $900. Who knew??

    Jetsmom, sad though it is to say it, I don't believe there IS a "policy". I wish Magna would just come out and say it, so that people would cease to have expectations of their responses to apparent...

    I can't say for sure, but I'd say on 11/12/2009, 7th race, a horse broke down at Charlestown.

    I don't think my body's adrenalin production rate has ever fully recovered from riding with Lynn and the group ... and it's been several years! Amazing experience, have a wonderful time!

    Phenylbutazone (bute) and clenbuterol among other substances including Furazone like topicals, are actually banned in animals for human consumption by the CFIA. No quarantine period can change that....

    This is awful :( So sorry for the owners.

    The next local horse auction is in Chino on the first Saturday in March; the one after is in Mira Loma on the second Saturday in March. I'll be at both...

    Okay, so someone that thought they could help couldn't.

    Six mares are actually remaining to be placed. I still don't have photos of them. Local rescues and rescue contacts have helped place all...

    Just the stallions, the yearling and 4yo colt remain to find homes... thanks to everyone that helped out.

    Yes. I'm an economist.

    I once looked at the price of horsemeat sold in France. I'm probably not remembering correctly, but I thought that the price variation was the equivalent of someplace...

    Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue has been asked to assist in finding good homes for 19 (at current count) free thoroughbreds currently at a local thoroughbred farm. I don't have any additional...

    THANK YOU

    Luvmytbs, I was at work today, left early this morning, and the first I heard of the fire was your message on my phone at 6,30 this evening. Checked in at home, and all was well. The fire apparently...

    I actually wasn't suggesting that they train exclusively on turf, but if you want it in the desert you would have to irrigate, just as some of the large breeding farms do now. There are a number of...

    I don't know - do they have to be IN LOS ANGELES? California does have an abundance of wide open spaces, particularly compared to the UK. Drive into the high desert, the low desert - land is cheap...

    The title of the article is highly misleading - in fact it's misrepresentation of the facts presented in the article.

    I like Arthur's comments that 90% of fatalities are associated with a...

    Beezer... you made me laugh. I have to share this on the CHRB.

    Last year the CHRB was contacted by, mmm, possibly press members ((?) forgetting the details now) regarding 40 pregnant TB mares...
  17. Really - the title of that article is...

    Really - the title of that article is unbelievably misleading. What's the per starter or start rate per surface?

    I'm just guessing, mind you, but most starts (starters) in California now occur...

    Sometimes I think you have to go with "the big picture". What policy/action improves incentives for more responsible breeding and ownership?

    It's not clear to me that the cost of euthanasia by lethal injection for a very broken horse at a racetrack is so high for its owner(s), relative to the monthly vet bills that many if not most have...

    I thought that the 100 TBs referenced on the blog page were all seized by Ventura County animal control at that time, and many I believe are now placed. Unfortunately, and this is just my...

    I am so sad for the loss of County.

    County's view and mine on whether horse slaughter should exist were completely at odds. Yet I agreed with statements that he made in so many of his posts, it...

    Just the tracks of the fair circuit (Pleasanton, Fresno, etc.) and Los Alamitos (multi-breed but mainly QHs and TBs) appear safe. Not clear what's going on with Fairplex as a year round training...

    Just wanted to say that folks at the Jockey Club helped us ID three auctione rescued horses this week, from difficult tattoo reads. They called ME to see if they could help me confirm the identities...

    No I understand - I think that the proprietor did a very good job of convincing people "outside" that all was well. I honestly doubt that everything was well in the Fall, possibly ever. The only...
