    Not that I'll ever have as high a profile as the individuals under discussion, but personally I'd be far more troubled by accusations of putting personal gain over a horse's welfare than I would by...

    Honestly, someone who needs to bring their coach out and do an extensive PPE before buying a (presumably unstarted) 2-year-old raises big flapping red tire-kicker flags to me.

    It looks like he had a good year in 2012, in fact I remember those who support his continued campaigning coming back after his win at the Fork ** rather smugly as if it proved that everything with...

    So how did this person come to own the mare in the first place? Was she in foal at the time? Because I would be very surprised if someone ignorant and lazy enough to leave a colt on its dam for 4...

    Nice to "meet" you properly! Very interesting to read in your blog of horsey culture shock - I love your description of Hunterworld. ;)

    mellsmom - BOTH parents have to be approved with a registry for the offspring to be eligible for registration. So if Deovolente wasn't approved ISR/OLD NA or AWS, those registries aren't options.

    Yay! Good for you for showing that bank what the deal is.

    I love your mare's expression as she's figuring it out, by the way. Gorgeous.

    Lippizaner x Orlov Trotter. Cute but, according to my friend who has the "privilege" of exercising him, moves like a pogo stick in rigor mortis.

    All else being equal (when is it ever?) registration would certainly be a point in favor. I bought a mare last year who I would never have found or known about if not for who her sire is and the...

    How much of the Empower Balance was/is he getting? I ask because you mentioned increasing it. In actuality, he shouldn't be getting more than 1 pound twice a day. Seriously. That type of product...

    Hay, hay pellets, and a ration balancer aren't going to be enough for most TBs. They really do better with a significant fat source. Lose the Empower (and probably some of the hay pellets) and...

    Nutrena only has one ration balancer: Empower Balance, which would provide a lot of the protein, vitamins, and minerals that it sounds like he isn't currently getting.

    But seriously ... what do...

    Per your post, he gets quite a lot of beet pulp, as well as timothy and alfalfa hay. yet his "feed" is nothing more than beet pulp, timothy, and alfalfa hay with enough fat added to bring it up to 6...

    You all realize that there's no point whatsoever in arguing with someone who thinks that only Grand Prix showjumpers are sporthorses? Because galloping for 4-5 miles over 30+ moderately large solid...

    Ditto. Constantly asking for a little more, a little more, ad nauseam is easy for a lazy horse to tune out. If one gentle use of leg gets you nothing, dial it up to 10 and kick him hard, adding...

    This may be beside the point, but does anyone know the qualification requirements to enter the Belmont vs. the Derby and vs. the Preakness?

    Woof boots would be a better choice than the ones you linked in your OP. I'm not sure how the shows work near you, but it seems that scheduling riders to jump stadium then immediately xc is becoming...

    Seriously. I've had my iPhone 4 since December 2011 (upgraded from cheap flip phone) and it's showing no signs of slowing down. Though now that I say that I'll probably drop it in a sewer or...

    I think what the OP is trying to say is that it can cost $50K just in show and transportation expenses to get a horse to ****. She's not talking about the horses the majority of amateurs are in the...

    She looks cute, though her neck and shoulder aren't terribly impressive she has a nice hind end, back, and leg conformation. I would wonder why her right front hoof is so much freakier looking than...
