5th September, 2008 If this were the last day of your life my friend?

I went to Beaulieu Road Sales yesterday and that will be the last time. I am filled with a profound sense of grief every time I go. Most of the foals there were only four or five months old and unhandled.

Pony one has equine papilloma virus which can be contagious and was in a pen with thirteen other foals. He was also being aggressive kicking and biting the others. Foal two speaks for himself. Foal three had some sort of eye cold in common with many of the foals at the sales.
