I've a soft spot for ex racers, i grew up with horses and we've had an OTTB in the family for 9 years now and wouldn't trade her for the world. ..though she's of in Ohio with my daughter now, not sure which I miss more, lol

    G’Day from down under xhimbica [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
