SATURDAY 19TH MAY:
Arother gorgeous day .The main job today is galloping ,we have around 70 hounds to gallop so its will take the best part of the day. We have brood due to have pups so they will have to be watched. The only other job will be to take the vat to the accountant . ON THE OPEN RACES SCENE IN THE UK WE HAD ONE WINNER AT ROMFORD OH NONONO .
Friday 18th May:
It looks like its going to be another nice day and definitely a busy day. Kamil is away for fish, all our waste has to be taken away, we need carpets, food for pups, were going to do a major swap around with pups, saplings and dogs that are schooling. We have a bit of tidying up to do. If we get all this done today it will have been a very good day.
On a very sad note as we were doing the journal Swift Tequilla (brood) dropped dead.
ON THE OPEN RACE SCENE IN THE UK WE HAVE FIVE RUNNERS TONIGHT.
AT ROMFORD: OH NONONO, SWIFT DIXON, SWIFT TARQUIN AND RUBYS RAZZLE.
AT CENTRAL PARK: SWIFT MILEY.
Thursday 17th May:
We only trialled 8 hounds yesterday at Kilkenny early in the morning as I had to leave Padgie at the kennels to feed and check on all pups which is a major job at the moment. My plan was to go back in the afternoon with plenty of help but I decided against it as it was red hot with no breeze. I cant go today as Padgie has a toothache and is at the dentist to check it out before it turns into an abses. I'll never school 24 hounds on my own so better to leave it a week and have it done properly with plenty of help.
ON THE OPEN RACE SCENE IN THE UK WE HAVE FOUR RUNNERS.
AT HOVE: SWIFFT IVY, OH ARMANI, OH YESYESYES
AT MONMORE: SWIFT LUCIOUS
Wednesday 16th May:
A lovely morning and a brilliant forecast for today , The main jobs today are trialing at Kilkenny we are going twice with 37 hounds .At the kennels its a day for feeding, cooking ,and cleaning plus keeping the dogs cool with plenty of water .
Tuesday 15th May:
Its an overcast morning but I don't think it will rain. We have broods for testing at Michael Dunne's and we are also going to Martin Lanny (back man) to get dogs checked (precautionary). At the kennels we are definitely going to gallop and we are definitely going to get the roadway tidied up in the field and that will be as much as we can do today.
ON THE OPEN RACE SCENE IN THE UK WE HAD ONE WINNER LAST NIGHT AT NOTTINGHAM: SWIFT ALBA.
TONIGHT WE HAVE FOUR WINNERS.
AT SHEFFIELD: CONEY SABELLA, SWIFT SAM AND CONEY KARAT.
AT CREYFORD: SWIFT ASBOLOS.
Monday 14th May:
The forecast is good and its another busy day. We have all our waste to go away. We have supplies to collect. We will hunt pups. We have straw to bag and we will tidy up the roadway in the field, we will do a bit of work on the gallop as well and that will be as much as we can do. In the soccer I thought Newcastle were outstanding yesterday against Chelsea. A 10th place finish in the premiership is fantastic. The 3 teams that came up last year from the championship all remain in the premiership. I said time and time again you would survive with 35 points and you actually would have survived with 33 if you had good goal difference.
ON THE OPEN RACE SCENE IN THE UK WE HAVE THREE RUNNERS TONIGHT AT NOTTINGHAM: AZZURRI GENESIS, SWIFT DITTON AND SWIFT ALBA.
Sunday 13th May:
A lovely morning and a brilliant forecast for the week which makes the job much easier. The main jobs today are hunting and galloping. Its the start of a very busy period with schooling and broods having pups. If we get the middle of this week here we will have all the hounds wormed, nails cut, treated for paracites and the dogs that are schooling will have been checked by the vet. We also need a trip to back man Martin Lanney.
Its the last day of the soccer season and Newcastle are on the TV at 3pm. Lets hope we can win and secure 10th spot which is a major achievement after coming out of the championship. As a Newcastle United fan lets hope we can get the ownership sorted. If somebody is going to buy them lets have it done very quickly but I don't think its going to happen. They must get the manager situation sorted and we definitely need players so lets hope it all happens quickly for next season.
NO OPEN RACING IN THE UK TODAY.
