    Ok, what's going on right now (5:50 pm). The Spanish chef looks MAD and people are clustering around shaking fists and yelling?
    (I so wish I understood what the commentators are saying on Dubai TV...)

      Thank you for verifying that. I am watching live on FEI tv, but I was wondering if somehow I was getting a replay of this morning. The FEI commentators aren't being very clear. It says because of excessively high heat and humidity.

          Dissolve. That's what you'd do in water. Or react with it.

          My area of expertise is chemistry, not royalty, so I'm not sure if they'd either melt or dissolve in general. BTW, IMHO, the wicked witch did neither....

                        Am I alone in thinking that the WEG should just be cancelled? I suppose it is too late to get the horses out.

                              Yeah, that does not seem like a fun event to be at... :/. I was at the Pan Ams with my horse, and it was relaxed and exciting. That just looks scary.

                                RE skydy's #91 post: TIEC is in the 4-6" yellow region of that map. It's located just to the right of where the NC/SC/GA borders come together, just as the SC border becomes flat.

                                That event does seem to be going quite off the rails ...

                                  On Monday, heikh Mohammed made an unannounced entrance into the Keeneland Yearling Sales (laying down many millions as he bought the cream of the crop).

                                  My guess is that he decided to swing by Keeneland on his way to watch the endurance at WEG. He was at the very top of endurance riders until a few years ago. Now his son is at the top of the sport. So it is not unreasonable for him to be at WEG and personally observe this clusterf*ck. Oops. One does not screw with *his* sport....

                                    He and his son have done that regularly.

                                        • So did they ever stop the leaders who were still on course? Or are those poor horses still out there in the dark for no reason?
