I fell by the wayside unfortunately.  Can I carry on with it, as with Futurelearn, in spite of everyone else having finished?  I know I wouldn't get a certificate, but I didn't want one anyway.
Did you enjoy the whole course Bex?

I also dithered, I think you can defer or restart a course, but if you paid to get certificate you've lost that money.

I like the code!

Yes, I believe you have access to the course material for as long as you like but won't get a certificate.

I did enjoy it. Some of the videos were a hard watch but it was interesting exploring my own views and opinions regarding animal welfare and how they compare to current standards and regulations.
I often question my own morals and ethics around animal welfare especially as it pertains to eating meat and whether I can still justify not being a vegetarian.
As it stands I am still happily omnivorous :)

I was fairly 'horsey' when I was younger but haven't been on or near one in years. And as I plan on having, at the very least, a few rescue donkeys once we get our smallholding, I thought this horse course would be a good way to brush up, so to speak.  :horse:

Little bugs have lesser bugs upon their backs to bite 'em. And lesser bugs have lesser bugs and so ad infinitum!
