What course are you doing? Do economists also have Saturday lectures?

Medicine. I don't think economists do, mainly Mathmos, NatScis, Compscis and engineers. (and 2nd year medics :mad: )

thx. Phew! Big relief. I'm so used to not doing anything on Saturday's until about 9pm that Saturday lectures would be a BIG shock to the system!

Engineers don't, at least not in the first year... and I didn't think mathmos did though I could be wrong..? Economists definitely don't. Some of ours don't seem to go to any lectures...

As far as I know, there are no saturday lectures in Oxford.

If lecture lists do it for you, you can look at them all here: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/pubs/lectures/

Almost exclusively sciences. I don't think any of the arts subjects have Saturdays.

Here, this should soothe all the Cambridge Freshers' concerns - it has the time and date of every lecture in every undergraduate course in Cambridge. But just to stem the panic, I can assure you that no first year in any subject other than NatSci has Saturday lectures. The rest of you just aren't good enough

Just to point out he isn't actually skewbald! He's tri-coloured but most of the pics make him look skewbald. However, technically he's tri coloured as he has a black patch above his knee on one of his fore legs and that is also why he has black in his mane and tail, rather than brown

Actually, there is no such thing as "Tri-coloured". Skewbald is the CORRECT term to describe a horse with either the tobiano or one of the overo genes on a base coat colour that is not black (which is called a piebald).

Rocky is in fact a bay horse, and displays the black points and mane and tail which all bay horses do (hence the black patch on his leg above the white marking)

His correct colouring should be described as "Bay Tobiano" - That is a tobiano pattern on a bay base coat.

Unless you are in a 1950's pony novel of course.... Maybe the original poster is suffering from some kind of delusion - perhaps a rejection to the modern way of living and the advances of science (yes, even equine terminology has advanced...)

Jolly hockey sticks everyone!

I agree he can be referred to as Tobiano, but his veterinary passport and insurance documents all call him Tricoloured as do the people at my yard (it is an equestrian college!) as that is the current terminology for a horse with three colours on his body (ie. above the knee).
