yes that's what we like to see .... lots of pictures of nice-looking strong young men. (whoops have I wandered on to the wrong website ...?) If I could find a picture of me which wasn't showing my chubby side, or my tum, or in which I didn't have my eyes half-closed, then I would post it ...
my chooks: Sage&Onion, Roger the randy cockerel, Squawkbox, Bonnie 'N' Clyde, Pancakes, Custard, Omelette & EggNog. Plus four garden cats and another half dozen feral ones that I feed. And a nursery of pipistrelle bats in the verandah roof ..

40 isn't old! Wow she's gonna be a vet, you must be proud. That's harder than human medicine isn't it.

I'm very proud of her I just hope she has the determination to see her through it. Not only is the training long (as you rightly said longer than human medicine) she also has a 1.5 hr journey each day to get there and 1.5 hrs back home by bus. I took her up there the other day to see the collage and was really impressed myself with the place. The teachers seemed fab and couldn't do enough to help us and we had a great meal in the refectory.....they also do equine,horticulture and game keeping there as well as agriculture. It's a working farm with as many hands as they need there and really does look to do the owners proud.

I just hope she has the stamina now for it all. She loves animals and nature and is a hive of information because of all the animal planet and national geo channels she's frequently watching. I'd love to be able to buy her a car to make the travelling that bit easier but the insurance would cripple us for a person of her age....these boy racers have ruined it for everyone...well them and the money grabbing insurance companies. BTW, 40 is old when you've played football most of your life, i seem to be able to feel every little kick I've ever had, every morning now all revisiting me.

Good luck to your daughter mattie2012, she has a long way to go but hopefully will get through in the end! If she does, tell her to specialise in poultry....there are so many vets out there who know next to nothing about them! ;)

Know what you mean about the car insurance. My eldest son is 19 1/2 & we can't afford to get him a car because of the insurance cost. It's due to go up for women too, as they are bringing it in line with men. There are some insurers trying to help though I believe. The Co-Op has a smartbox device fitted in the car which monitors how you drive so if you're sensible & not a maniac, your premium should go down - at least that's the theory!

I'm afraid to say cp that I wouldn't touch coop with a barge pole after last weeks escapades. I phoned them up on my Dad's behalf because after being with them for nearly 50 years they quoted him £426 and he was annoyed about it. He asked me to shop around for him on the web and I managed to get him a quote from Churchill for £256. He hasn't had a claim in all of the time he was with Coop either....it's disgusting some of the rates they come up with it really is. He doesn't get half of what he would get with coop should he need to claim and the excess is higher but if you drive carefully then you shouldn't need these things anyway. least that's his phyilosophy!!

Don't worry, I've already told my daughter she can be my personal vet, I also look after a kennel full of hounds every now and again for the local hunt, so her services may be very useful there too.

Reptilian vets are very few and far between too. Considering it's one of the most popular animals to keep in this country, it's quite surprising really. My nearest reptile vet is about 20 miles away. And I'm lucky at that :?
