    If you can, hire a handler, it will be money well spent. She sounds like she is manageable, and someone who handles horses for a living will be able to show her off at her best. Same for her mom.

    FWIW, a nutritionist teaching at UC Davis says that for the most part pro-biotics are not effective in horses. He has a few special cases he recommends for them, but otherwise, no.

    No, I would never buy a horse with ERU, and I say that knowing that there are many conditions a horse could have that I would consider. I have managed several horses who had it, and all I can say is...

    I agree with IluvmyButtercups, but I will add that I see people trying to give away old, unrideable horses (or young unrideable horses) and wonder who would take on the expense of having a horse like...

    I think the only one worth reading on that list is The Making of the Modern Warmblood, #1 on your list, and that one is excellent. The other two are very general and I didn't find them very valuable.

    They are both lovely stallions. I have a Diamond Stud filly this year I adore, so I might be a little biased. His semen is excellent and the SO simplifies things for the mare owner. Rock Forever...
