lionheart is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Grand National Fatalaties

Yet more carnage. When will they ever learn? That poor horse landing on his neck really sums it up. Shocking waste of talent.

*STOP PRESS*

"lionheart in dangerous sport is dangerous shocker"


and in todays other news the sun shocked many by making another appearance this morning.






when will they learn, learn what? that its a dangerous pastime? really?
waste of talent? what, horses that have been bred for exactly that talent, not a waste as much as bred for that specific purpose really.

Sad when such a finely trained and cared for animal dies...horses are such a noble creature.

But...I am already getting tired of the press this receiving - it just confirms over and over that many people back home care more about kittens and horses than people.

Amen.

Also agree with Shiva; they're bred for it, they love it and they love racing.

If a horse dies before the end of their career, the only thing they miss out on (if a successful horse) is lots of sex.

Behave.

Bacon Sandwich or a hangover McDonalds.

Two reasons I've never entertained the thought of being a Vegetable.

How d'you know plants don't have feelings, too?

And if rats (on a stick, preferably) tasted as good as a Lincolnshire sausages and by eating them you were reducing their numbers, would you or wouldn't you?

I like fluffy animals, I don't like seeing them dead so I think i'd rather not eat them- rats are cute too to be honest-ok not if its climbing out your ubend, but if I watch it on David Attenborough and go aww I think it falls into a cute factor.

I used to have a hamster which is a rodent- if hamsters where pests like rats would you say the same thing about them?

Plants- well Im not that bothered about them or fish. I do understand my arguement is completely flawed - and I will still drink milk and eat fish just nothing that resembles a carcus of something that was once cute!

Purely because it would be like kicking a puppy, I'm going to let that abomination of an argument slide.

(also 'cos you've helped me get over here )
