    One way ... advertise and sell on multiple platforms and the in person sale is “if not sold prior”... In any business knowing and connecting with your customer is key. On another angle As you may know I’m a a fan of parts of the German model and exclusive sire arrangements - I’m sure savabeel has done ok as private.

    I wonder if it will begin to swing the power back to supplier ie the major producers like arrow field who through necessity prove that in fact they have exclusivity and pulling power in a business where discerning wealthy buyers want an edge.

    Ribchester

    I saw him at the parade when he first arrived, still a racehorse when I saw him, thought he was finer even a bit narrow in front - I may be being harsh - but with 4 G1 wins you can’t say he’s not a contender, sire son of Iffraaj seem to be sort after - I’m happy to have a mare by the international shuttle sire...

    He’s (showcasing) a great way to kick off a mare - like volksraad used to do

    Horse loading ramp

    Measure your own / most likely contract mover truck door and make it slightly wider for parking error, and also for its height. consider how both side and rear loaders can use it consider a rise then flat rather than continuous up hill hmmm.... consider an L shape when the horses walk around a corner as well...

    Time Test

    Totally agree. We can get a thrill from that dansili mare time test is out of, but we find out when the hoofs hit the turf. But disclosure I’ve sent my best mare to him...
  13. Point 4: never drink a Chardonnay cold , it kills the complex aromas. Point 10: really gets me as if you can’t hear what’s the point of being there, especially given point 9!
  14. Here's an article on 1 NEWS NOW I thought you might be interested in. Aussie racehorses wrongfully sent to slaughterhouse, investigation uncovers https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/sport/other/aussie-racehorses-wrongfully-sent-slaughterhouse-investigation-uncovers
  15. I think The rules of racing in NSW prohibit the sale of ex racehorses at unregistered/ unregulated sales, and while not illegal also the destruction of horses in this way at a slaughter house. The article quoted around 4000 a year being slaughtered- the NSW industry regulator - who appears to be not monitoring effectively - is quoting .4 of 1% from memory noting 14000 foal a year are bred in Australia.
