This is a division i JUST got from Krull Smith (it came today). It was shipped in bloom so the blooms are a little damaged but hopefully will straighten out in a few days. This clone was awarded in April of 2006.

Have I mentioned lately how lovely I think these are? Each photo makes me go and threaten mine. I know Jason's bloomed this year and he got his at the same time and place as I got mine (same cross, same size). Hopefully soon!!!! :sob:

It's a possibility, if the only vet schools i get into are out of the country!

Not bad at all!

One cross I'm going to make is Bel Royal (roth x kolo) x rothschildianum. I'd like bigger roth-like flowers with a 6 to 7 flower count!

You can get that without the kolo. Some people even claim 7 flowers on roths. Most I have seen is 6. I agree though. That would be a neat cross. Especially with a really dark roth like titanic.

Beautiful plant! It'll make a great parent!

I can't imagine you not being able to find a good vetrinary school in the US. One of the guys I work with had his wife head up to Colorado to attend vetrinary school. After 1 year of separation, he decided he wanted to be with her so he left fighters, joined the airlines, and moved up there till she finished school.

I thought that because of the shortage of large animal vets that you could get some kind of special deal and easy admission if you agreed in advance to do that. But of course, that depends on you wanting to be a large animal vet. One of my friends did that for a little while and couldn't handle it (he's a neurosurgeon now--quite a masochist).

I seem to recall getting into vet school is harder than getting into med school.....as there are only about 30 or so vet schools in the USA. So the competition is rather fierce for one of the spots.

Shhhhh, don't remind him. He might just do something rash! :sob:
