  1. Am I the only person FUMING about the whole Waverley raceday situation??????????
  2. Hey team, whats the general rule, I have horses here that are turning themselves inside out with not heading to the track, are horses that have been in full work for a period and not stabled at the track allowed to be transported to the track to be worked under level 4?
  3. Already rang this guy and he doesnt really do them anymore, they are a wee bit expendo $130k +

  6. Hey there - we need a farrier here in Hawera for several small stables, for me I would be prepared to travel to get horses shod, we are desperate!!! please contact us direct (06) 2784021 leave a message on answer machine
  7. Thinking of Rosie and her family, stay strong people
  8. What was the story in the Oaks? The stewards report is not out yet, jockeys and horses ok?
  9. So are they racing guys, sorry not able to watch tv at mo, out and about.......
  10. yeah well I Normally wean about 6 months, my foal was born on 6 Sep so nice and early and the mare is in foal again so being her first year with a foal at foot just monitoring her condition - she was hard fed the last month - 6 weeks before foaling and they are now eating together too. Thanks guys was much what I thought but just wanted someone to bounce off.
  11. He went real well considering he ran part of his race before he got to the gates...... guess he wasnt used to being led out onto the track like they are there either, Rosie did all she could with the draw and the sectionals the way they were, awesome result just gutted he got pipped the last bit, but they still did us proud
  12. Hey Guys, Just a quick question to see how many days approx everyone weans their foals, or is this another one of those "depends on the mares condition" etc..... There must be a scientific study done re the amount of milk that a mare produces until a certain day, as to whether you are gaining anything leaving the foal on or not. Your opinions please
  13. Sorry Mr Big Stuff you are right it was "Biff" that I meant to be quoting, just saw red thats all............specsavers is probably an option too!!! Seriously though, I understand there is a problem with certain things in the industry but all the moaning in the world aint gonna fix nothing. I dont know how to fix it but please negative comments are not gonna help a hell of alot, it is hard enough to drag your carcass out of the hay in the mornings to carry on at ground level as it is without people making it harder!!!
  14. Yeah well Mr Big Stuff........... your name says it all, all I am saying is lets get some positive feed back and make this industry a joy to participate, stop moaning and change something ( I am not too sure how, but at least I can admit it) Paul has is reasons for leaving the industry and my level of participation is none of your business.
  15. So much positivity NOT!!!! come on guys, if you cant come up with positive comments dont comment at all, get sick and tired of reading all this negative stuff - there are people in NZ like myself trying to make something with what we have and it is not all about the punters and what they think...... they think they have the rough end of the stick, you wanna try making it in this industry, we are here because we love it. We need positive comments and feed back that can maybe help - get sick of hearing stuff that is just downing to the industry, bugger off and make your comments else

    CWJ

    Hey better be careful slinging at the best, lets face it - CWJ is one of the best in the saddle, we havent got alot of new talent coming through behind these riders either, this game is hard. Also if theres a genuine concern for peoples safety let the so called "big boys" take his license off him, dont get personal, nobody knows someones personal issues or needs no matter how mighty they might think they are, stop judging and deal with the supposed issue at hand
  17. Hey Jess, Send the horse to Iain Marks in Te Aroha, I have known Iain and Betty for a long time now and thay are brilliant with horses that have problems, they also have a top rider that is gentle and understanding of the horses individual needs - I have witnessed them with a number of trouble horses and they take the time that they need and also are willing to change their training techniques to suit the specific horse, I have personally given them horses of my own to work with and have been nothing but impressed with the job. I sent them a horse to break in and due to the condition
  18. What about the owners and trainers guys, once again they are taking the slack. Ya really do get annoyed with this, never used to hear of abandonments - seems that these guys are trying to be clever and its not paying off.......
  19. Very sad, leaves one speechless, such a waste.
  20. There is a spot for a track rider at Hawera - Taranaki, anyone out there please contact Betty and Iain on 027 270 8864
  21. It is also hard from a trainers perspective, you may have a horse that is suited to a genuine 7-8, the track is rated 7-8 you race and the track is clearly not close to the rating, is this a case of tell the owners and trainers what they want to hear on race morning to get the numbers racing???? not only is it unfair to the punters but also the trainers, owners and most importantly the horses......it is a gamble as to what the track is going to be on raceday, personally find it hard to trust the penetrometer reading.
  22. I think that O P thought that the pace was going to quicken and when it didnt he got a fright, because shez such an honest horse she tried and flew home, I love Veyron but I also think that Shes Sinsational should have won that race hands down, dont think that O P did her any favours. Well done Veyron, because I think that saying that he is JUST a miler is a bit low, he is a very talented horse and the best horse won on the day, thats racing - all the ifs and buts in the world cant take it off him and the connections, you take every win and we all work hard to get our horses to the races, jus
