(Due to the wonders of the internet am now pretty convinced the title link should now be to a non geo-restricted site)
The link is to a documentary recently shown in the UK - one of the Inside Nature's Giants series (which last year won a BAFTA - our version of an Emmy).
The full majesty and fragility of the thoroughbred racehorse is frankly addressed.
Ever wondered why and how horses can run so fast? This programme that will go a long way towards explaining that.
Highly Recommended viewing.
(NB The programme was shown in the UK with a parental advisory notice as not really suitable for young children. Includes scenes in the mating shed (Coolmore's no less) and of a post mortem)
