    To Thomas' list of "bads" as seen through COTH-ers' eyes we can now add:

    cops are crooked

    prosecutors are crooked

    judges are no better

    a statute that says you must provide shelter is...

    And. . ."Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead!"

    Anyone old enough to remember the old Saturday Night skit :lol: ?

    If we are going to be very accurate about this, there is no published report that monthly or bi-weekly Adequan does anything ;)

    It worked for me too - it's "just" $7.95 but it feels so good not to pay it :cool: Thanks for the code!

    These are the best. But I agree they're so deliciously addictive they're a little dangerous to keep around the barn :lol:

    I feel a little sorry for whoever made this error because it must be devastating to know your mistake killed 21 horse. I feel more sorry for the ponies, their owners and riders, and the vets and...

    Great job, FatPalomino & Jetsmom, of providing facts and evidence :yes: :yes: :yes:

    I don't think so. I won a Pessoa saddle in 1985 or thereabouts. Rodrigo was just 12. By 1990 - Rodrigo was just 18 - lots of people were riding in Pessoas in Florida and Virginia.

    All I can...

    As others have said, it's Portuguese, not Spanish. The Brazilian Federation is not spitting in the FEI's eye, IMO, but covering its behind. My Portuguese is rusty, but I came up with this...

    Wow, I hope that's a mistake. I went to the open house briefly. The park has some good and bad things. The best thing is the indoor, which reminded me of Frying Pan Park in Virginia, except bigger...

    Reporting abuse is the ethical thing to do, and perhaps it's harsh to say it's useless, but it's also a little naive to assume that if, say, a young working student for a BNT goes to authorities to...

    I didn't call anyone a Courtney person :lol: Had I used commas, this is how that sentence would have read:



    That's the only interpretation that makes any grammatical sense ;) But, in any...

    I think it's a pretty good bet that he didn't pick it up at the clinic. If you read Courtney's comments after the FEI decision, she pretty much backed away from that theory. Only on the internet...

    She doesn't have to be a "late" entry. She's always been on the show roster. If she does compete, I wonder if the timing of the decision was totally coincidental.
  16. I tend to agree. I think that was a joke :lol:...

    I tend to agree. I think that was a joke :lol: :lol:

    Oh, no, I'm a lawyer too :lol: :lol: :lol: !!

    P.S. I find ceffyl's position way more logical from a lawyer's standpoint ;)

    I don't get it :confused: While ceffyl gets accused of spreading rumors when she/he offers logical deductions based on the public record :no:, the post above is sheer speculation. And that's okay...

    Why bother responding? YankeeLawyer - who, amazingly lives and breathes high-profile law, has a stable of international-caliber horses, and spends more time on this board than anyone except SLC2...

    I like this too :D !!! The rules may suck (I've already said I think they are draconian) but they're the rules.

    The flip side of "why would they test for such a harmless substance?" is "why is so...

    I have no idea - no one does except the riders and their people - of what the intent was, but for drug testing purposes it doesn't matter. The rules are strict liability. If the horses tested...
