    edit the stupid woman's comments out and put some nice music in until you get to the judge's comments. As an aside, I watch lots of YouTube videos of horses jumping, and frankly I really get...

    don't apologize on here--you will always find snarky people posting here. I am afraid you will have to get used to it. Too many people picking at nits.

    a point of order here. They are not half and 3/4 brothers. They are all "by the same sire". To be a half brother a horse would be out of the same mare but by a different sire. And just because...

    welcome to the world. they have never kept any pedigree records, up to date or otherwise, so no way they have anything near a complete database. the owners of the horses will not support this--and...

    simple answer is to just let the lease run its course. you signed it even after having the prior trouble with them on the terms of the free lease. you can do whatever you like, and there have been...

    just feed her grass hay to keep her weight. If she is fit and healthy, don't get crazy with the protein. A nice grass/alf mix works just fine for 90% of the mares. Let Mother Nature take over...

    this may or may not mean a thing--quit scaring the pony mare owner. I have mares that start to bag a bit a couple months out, and even are leaking a month out. Then I have others who show nothing...

    I wouldn't be put off by this one comment. If the mare is healthy, and fit, then give it a try. But remember that just because the vet says she is repro sound does not mean that mother nature will...

    I guess the next thing is Beginner Stand. someone just leads them into the arena and parks them all in a line in the middle. The announcer announces the start of the class, and we all watch for one...

    wow, someone needs more fiber in their diet. I think you have proven my point.

    Fear is a very real thing. Overcoming that is a process that each of us has to go through differently, as we process life's fears/accidents/tragedies all in different ways, based on our past...

    You did not post the pedigree details, but if I am correct this is really a Hann bred horse, although bred in Denmark (which is not uncommon for the Danes). Weltmeyer, Wenzel and Absatz seem to be...

    Cannot argue with this. We are thin--although good at the top of our pile of rider/horse combos--but we have no one in the minors working their way up. It is the same old riders with an occasional...

    they have got to put out this year--just two North American-Central America-Caribbean slots available and it appears they will go to team US and team Canada--Mexico looked pretty poorly last week. ...
