  1. Well does fowk think its worth breeding now or leaving off until we see whats happening with this bird flu and Covid 19 ,I dont know but i have a bad feeling about this years racing.I think this government are going to struggle with getting vaccinations distributed to get the human ailment under control,what you think eh .
  2. Morning all hope all well after Hogmonay.
  3. What annoys me is the media yesterday spout on about numbers dead how many in hosp ,how just now compares to months ago every statistic but hey whats happened to the elation of a couple weeks age when they announced the vaccine programme ,well its all gone silent on that news .Who has been vaccinated ,what stage are they at ,is it proving a success ,what regions are done ,are local surgeries and pharmacies vaccinating if not why not ,or is it another Westminster shambles costing a fortune and being miss handled.

  7. Nae quite right IMO ringing 2021 birds in 2020 but possibly that would be the fault of the SHU or similar organizations for releasing rings to early but really who cares if the early birds want to feed youngsters 2 / 3 months more than me on you go IMO best off luck with your young ones 2021 though.

  20. Hopefully this club thats being formed will not split the Fed ,it might lessen birdage slightly but as far as i am aware Buckie ,Elgin members got cleaned out early on and Inverness well are they in our fed .I personally had one young bird race and lost half my team ( i only started with 24 ) all trained out tae 25 mile but bang they are gone .So what happens we do the same again next year ???? ,well i for one dont blame them looking for some thing new ! perhaps the Fed should have been looking into some thing similar ,just my thoughts on the subject.
