    Welcome to the forum, gingiefly.

    I used to be a yard-man but I am retired now.

    I think there are a few on here who still have the joy of mucking-out and working with horses, I’m sure they will be along in a while!

    I worked 4 J.L.Dunlop n last rode out 4 Lady Anne Herries (missing that one).

    Does anyone know by the way, if Harry Dunlop has taken any of the John Dunlop staff up 2 his yard in Lambourn??

    Gingiefly, can we PLEASE converse in English.

    It doesn’t take that much longer to type the full word and it certainly doesn’t cost any more.

    Methinks GingieFly is a bit of a textaholic, guilty of it myself when I text.

    I’m with L.V Russell at the moment. Absolutely love it and what a time we’re having at the moment!!

    Where do you ride out Tony?

    Namedroppers the lot of ya ;)

    I used to work part-timish when i was in school for a point-to-point trainer but i wouldn’t know him from Adam now, just on the "breeding" side of his operation – he was ecentric and insisted on using an ex-racer and an Irish draught stallion to induce stamina.
