    Another thought...This is HBO. They don't do 'family friendly.' While there were some squicky moments on the BBC series (most things like birth and stitches are real, with an actual farm vet,...

    Someone at one of our zoos when I worked at one went up a gated-off access road and was found sitting next to the snow leopard enclosure, reaching through the fence and petting the snow leopard. ...

    Technically the BBC version was a "remake" (there's an earlier film; Anthony Hopkins was in it). But as far as I'm concerned there is no need to improve on it, let alone throw in "name" actors (let...

    http://www.equibase.com/profiles/Results.cfm?type=Horse&refno=7991938&registry=T

    Equibase is more useful since you can read the old charts on most horses (except really long-ago ones.)

    If her close kin are winning in New York, you MIGHT try consigning her there. It's a good market to run state-bred horses so someone there might like her based on recent wins and would have a better...

    Condition is everything. If the cover's damaged, the value drops significantly so in this case, unless it's a signed first edition the value's probably almost nothing to start with. If it's "David...

    Look normal to me. He's not a fire-breather so I suspect his are flopped more often than they're pricked.

    Yep. I see a bunch of horses who know EXACTLY what's expected of them, which seems to be showing what I'd call "brio" (fire, action, etc) on a very long, loose, lead, then being expected to stand...

    I don't mind the ribs (he's a racehorse, after all) but I don't get why they wet him down so much he looks a different color than he really is.

    I called the fire department when I had one going off and they basically said the humidity attracts dust so there's not much you can do except AC and dehumidifiers.

    *sigh* Think about how that sounds if you say it about women. And yes, women do many equally dumb things--just I find it more at work than at home.

    Honestly? Sleep Number is the best mattress I've ever had. I sleep alone, but even so, I vary between how firm and how soft I want it depending (lately it's been firm, but I was hurting...

    Baffert flat-out said in one of the articles he'd never let people pet War Emblem like he does Pharoah because he'd "savage" them, so I'm guessing he's probably not up for much snuggly pictures. And...

    My policy with everyone is whenever someone is about to do something stupid unless we're talking actual immediate risk of death (ie eating fifty-year-old canned goods with swollen ends on the can) is...

    It's like $75/day rate for owners at some tracks. (I don't know off the top of my head what our horses are but when they were at Santa Anita it wasn't cheap.) That is way more than I have ever paid...

    I know at least one person who cold-called a trainer half the country away not even to make an immediate offer but to find out if they had plans for the horse when he was done and were met with "Want...

    In most jurisdictions polygraphs aren't admissible because they're highly subjective and for someone who's good at keeping calm (ironic given what this vet likes to push for horses) you can be guilty...

    That is just so much more work than I'd want to put into cookies. (But it's very cool. I appreciate it on a professional level, I just can't imagine doing it for fun.)

    I agree with Melissa--just call the trainer (or leave a message at the track office) making an offer on the horse. You might get it for less than the minimum claim price (I think it's $5000 there,...

    I agree with gumtree. Especially with a bone bruise it's the stress of the sport. Overall Chrome has been sounder than a lot of his peers.

    My parents do a neuter (they're all male right now, females were spayed), shots, and the cats get Revolution. Right now there's just one unaltered male who hasn't been to the vet yet (he's always...

    About the only thing that any reasonable person might have done differently is wait longer to consider the operation given the dog's physical state--that's an enormous weight gain in barely a month....
