ITS 8:30AM AND WE ARE AT 35 MILES AND WE HAVE THICK FOG ON THE COURSE.  WE WILL WAIT IT OUT BUT IF IT DOESNT CLEAR WE WILL HAVE TO BRING THEM BACK. WE ARE EXPECTING CLOUDS TO COME IN TONIGHT WITH RAIN THROUGH MONDAY. WE CAN ONLY DO WHAT WE FEEL IS RIGHT FOR THE BIRDS. THE WEATHER HAS NOT BEEN IN OUR FAVOR.

LOOKS LIKE WE ARE DONE WITH THE POX OUT BREAK. THERE ARE A FEW BIRDS THAT STILL HAVE LARGE POX ON THERE EYES. THOSE BOIRDS ARE NOT GOING TO TRAIN THIS WEEK. WE ARE GOING TO GO 15 MILES TODAY. IF THE BIRDS DO GOOD WE WILL GO 35 MILES ON FRIDAY. WE HAVE HAD LOTS OF RAIN. WE ARE EXPECTING RAIN AGAIN LATE TONIGHT AND TOMORROW, WITH ANOTHER STORM COMING IN ON SATURDAY.

WE HAD TO SLOW DOWN ON TRAINING. THE BIRDS HAVE POX. A COUPLE WEEKS AGO A BIRD CAME BACK FROM LAST YEARS RACE. IT WAS A BIRD THE WAS GIVIN BACK TO THE FANCIER. IT HAD POX AND I DIDNT SEE THE BIRD UNTIL IT WAS TO LATE AND HAD INFECTED THE LOFT. WE HAVE BEEN TREATING THE BIRDS  FOR 10 DAYS AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE RESPONDING WELL. WE WILL START TRAINING AGAIN THIS WEEK.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR,
