Promising update on my horse…

horse.jpg This is a copy of an email I received from the trainer of my horse, Tarpins this morning:

He will have his first good gallop in the morning (6oom evens) which will be the most work he has done this time in. He is quite backward mentally and the plan is to trial him on Friday week (1 June).

Usually trainers try to talk up the horses in their care. I dread to think what ‘quite backward mentally’ really means…

    Don’t worry about the ‘Quite Backward Mentally’ bit Bruce Clarke – I had a dog who was also ‘Quite Backward Mentally’ and all he ever did was eat children.

    RIP Gordon

    I will try to remember never to fly a kite around my horse.
