Plus 12 and dry when driving in.

Apparently a disappointing week ahead weatherwise.

Monday morning and some very fresh horses which is slightly surprising as they all had their annual flu jabs yesterday.

It is BHA rules.

Perth on Saturday was not a good day out as Peaked Too Soon found the soften ground catch his wind out.. that will be recticifed this week.

An ode of English plurals

We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes, But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.

You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice, Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.
