  1. BGB,you forgot Ms T.Bippin,she gave a very nice presentation for the Sound Horse side.

    as far as Blkburn the lickers wasted their money,all she wanted to talk about was the race Horse industry.did she mix-up which group gave her what money,she is on the take so to speak.

    NOW I hope this group of non horse folks can see the abuse that the twh goes thru for the sick humans that own them.
