Molson Canadian!
I was very disappointed when I eent to Montana and couldn't get my Canadian but we sell all sorts of American beer. Very put out.
But it looks like we are getting regular Coors instead of just light which is good. THAT'S a beer you guys did right.

The US racing industry generates something like $26 billion dollars - and unlike the average riding school or trail centre owner who are often scraping by to own a good racehorse and have it in training requires a reasonable amount of wealth - some of these people are paying huge sums of money to buy some of these horses but can't be bothered to spend some to have an unsound horse euthanized at home or support a rehabilitation centre to get a sound one prepared for normal riding?
This one ended up in a Rescue near to me. I'm sorry but I do find this subject serious - as I find all forms of neglect and abuse serious - we just happen to be discussing OTTB's and if the industry should do more to help its cast out horses
