QuoteOriginally posted by: CuchulainnQuoteOriginally posted by: katastrofaRIP, Zwartje.How old was she/he?Here's a Polish comics strip explaining how cats can have 9 lives:Translation goes as it reads:"Heaven's door"Oh no... you again?Make up your mind! ARE YOU COMING IN OR NOT?![Why cats have nine lives.]Zwartje's probably used them all...He was 9 years. It was sudden and our other cats died of old age (e.g. 18 and 19 years).My first duty when back from London last night was to build a little grave next to Boris' and Praline's.Is it legal to burry pets the house's garden in the NE?It is not in Gaule.

Yes, i don't really watch racing that much any more. I got a little closer to the sport through a syndicate and saw so many injuries and problems in training, even in a very good place where the quality of care was excellent. I was aware of this before, of course, but my perspective has changed in the last few years.So now, mostly just yacht racing.RIP to those horses.

My memory goes just about to Mtoto in 1988 at the King George Stakes. I've stopped watching any kind of races, unless it's rugby

QuoteOriginally posted by: katastrofaHave you tried dressage?Yes, when I returned to riding after a long absence, I started with dressage and then added jumping again once I "got my seat back" as horse people say.Dressage is a great foundation, even if you will not train for Grand Prix level yourself.
