What a great way to honour a magic horse! And I do hope you are right in the connections putting the horses' interests first - I feel comfortable that Peter will do that, just hope he can "bully" the connections that way.
Ruffian: I've just looked up your namesake - I apologise for my ignorance, I'd not heard of her, but can understand why she made such an impact - she's magnificent! I was interested to read some of the pieces comparing her tragic death with Barbaro - I think it's good that we now have no problem in grieving for such wonderful equine athletes. She is just beautiful though. And Pati, I'm hanging on Peter to know and do the right thing by Nelly!
