    Waikato Stallion parade

    Big crowd turnout. Stallions impressively presented at every stud. Didnt make choosing matings any easier ! Windsor had theirs looking particularly shiny and ready to go. Zacinto very poised in the wind and rain. Pedigrees aside, Preferment, Rock 'n' Pop, Sacred Falls, Zacinto, Vanbrugh, Turn Me Loose, Mongolian Khan and Shocking had particular physical appeal - to my very subjective eye.

    May Sale - as a vendor is it worth it?

    Good vendor to deal with too. His weanlings are well presented & generally have decent pedigrees. No reserves on them so you know where you stand.

    Race 8 Avondale interference

    Seems like a sensible outcome . Rider of 2nd horse viewed footage and decided not to take it any further. D.Johnson warned by stewards. All sorted.

    joke thread

    Paternity explanations - from Child Support forms These comments (allegedly) were provided by mothers on Child Support forms in response to request for details of children's fathers. Aside from being variously amusing and sad, some illustrate the admirable spirit and humour that people exhibit in the face of personal challenge, institutional bureaucracy and what some clearly regard as an invasion of privacy."..I don't know the identity of the father of my daughter. He drives a BMW that now has a hole made by my stiletto in one of the door panels. Perhaps you can contact the BMW dealers in the area to see if he's had it replaced..""..I am unsure as to the identity of the father of my child as I was taken unexpectedly from behind while being sick out of an upper-storey window. I can provide you with a list of names of men that I think were at the party if this might help..""..He gave me a phone number which turned out to be one of his mates who said he'd been killed in a concrete mixer accident. He was a builder and a bit stupid so I thought yes that sounds about right..""..I have never had sex with a man. I am waiting for a letter from the Pope confirming that my son's conception was immaculate, and that he is Christ risen again..""..[XXX] is the father of child A. If you catch up with him can you ask him what he did with my AC/DC CD's?..""..I thought it was [XXX] because we definitely had sex at a time which fits with the birth of child A, but since discovering he is gay I am not so sure..""..I do not know the name of my daughter's father. She was conceived at a party on [date] at [venue] where I had unprotected sex with a man I met that night. I do remember that the sex was so good I fainted. If you manage to trace the father can you send me his phone number? Thanks..""..I remember buying the sperm at a garage sale last spring but I never kept the receipt I'm afraid.." "..I cannot tell you the name of child A's father as he informs me that to do so would blow his cover, and that this would have cataclysmic implications for the economy. I am torn between doing right by you and right by my country. Please advise.."

    Why do you seldom see lawyers sunbathing at the beach ? Because cats keep coming along and covering them up !

    joke thread

    Three prominent surgeons were playing golf together and discussing surgeries they had performed. One of them said, "I'm the best surgeon in town. In my favourite case, a concert pianist lost seven fingers in an accident; I reattached them, and 8 months later he performed a private concert for the Queen of England." The second surgeon said.. "That's nothing. A young man lost an arm and both legs in an accident; I reattached them, and 2 years later he won a gold medal in the track and field events at the Olympics." The third surgeon said, "You guys are amateurs”. Several years ago a man was high on cocaine and marijuana and he rode a horse head-on into a train traveling 160kms an hour. All I had left to work with was the man's blonde hair and the horse's arse. I was able to put them back together and now he's running for President of the U.S.A! "

    Riding the favourite at Riccarton, a jockey was well ahead of the field. Suddenly he was hit on the head by a turkey and a string of sausages. He managed to keep control of his mount and pulled back into the lead, only to be struck by box of Christmas crackers and a dozen mince pies as he went over the last fence. With great skill he managed to steer the horse to the front of the field once more when, on the run, he was struck on the head by a bottle of sherry and a Christmas pudding. Thus distracted, he succeeded in coming only second. He immediately went to the stewards to complain that he had been seriously hampered.
