    As the year for our babies kicked over I realised.....my weanlings had become yearlings and theyre not even weaned - which got me to thinking....

    WHAT a great way to barrier train them! I think the stewards should have no objection to racehorses bringing their mummies along for a quick suckle for comfort before they go out and a quick drink when they cross the line - you could line up the mummies at the finish post...first one here gets milk!

    What do you think, should I a) suggest this to the turf club as an innovation or b) wean the yearlings....?

    Can you record it when you suggest it to the stewards? (video and audio please!) :D

    ROFLMAO PSO...I once asked one of them if Ritalin for ADHD horses was a banned substance.......he looked at me for a few seconds then laughed...(mental note to self..do not torment the stewards!)
