Minus 5 and dry when driving in.

Actually driving in was not much fun as the back or local roads had not been gritted as it was raining when I went to bed.

When I  left evening stables to go home last night it was snowing, which then turned to rain and then froze, so I leave it to your imagination what conditions were like here this morning.

Mikey Hamill who drives in daily from South of Worcester said there was no frost with him this morning..

David Bass (minus 6 according to his car) was in this morning but what work we might have done with the horses was soon cancelled and we just cantered the horses instead.

Any chance of jumping horses was certainly a no no as the ground was frozen solid.

We are hoping to have a runner at Leicester today but I cannot see it being on. If it is then Abbreviate heads there and for my thoughts please click here.

Predictably Plumpton and Leicester were abandoned.

The BHA for the second time in a week have backed down under pressure..Not good vibes from our leaders..

Charlie Mann's tweet yesterday must have hit home.. It is a worry as our sport needs strong leadership..

The BHA might be making themselves a laughing stock so lets find a reason to laugh too..

I know we have all recycled our Christmas trees but this one amused me.

Onions and Christmas Trees

A family is at the dinner table. The son asks his father, "Dad, how many kinds of boobs are there?"

The father, surprised, answers, "Well, son, there are three kinds of boobs...

In her 20s, a woman's are like melons, round and firm.

In her 30s, 40s and 50's they are like pears, still nice but hanging a bit.

After 60, they are like onions."


"Yes, you see them and they make you cry."

This infuriated his wife and daughter so the daughter said,  "Mum, how many kinds of "willies" are there?"

The mother, surprised, smiles and answers, "Well, dear, a man goes through three phases.

In his 20's, his willie is like an oak tree, mighty and hard.

In his 30s, 40s and 50's it is like a birch, flexible but reliable.

After his 60s, it is like a Christmas tree."

"A Christmas tree?"

"Yes.  The tree is dead, and the balls are just for decoration."
