    Umm, that would be the first time.
    Didn't mock the thread, made a point about people having different values. And people in Europe wouldn't take the ad the same way because they see similar ads on...

    Absolutely good mares. But that is in terms of production. Lots of mares with perfect conformation do not produce well and mares that look a bit average are outstanding producers. Look at some of the...

    I actually love the statement it makes.
    Women and sex have been used to sell everything from cars to liquor and anything in-between. This ad is a bit of a tongue and cheek nod to that tradition as...

    There is the fantasy that they are creating with the videos and there is the reality. The horse could be the same quality as the furry one in the pasture in Canada. But for a least the 8k import fee...

    With any stallion that the owners pay for them to get tested and then it doesn't work out. Which is many stallions that test every year.

    Good point. If you are going to blanket, you do not want it tight, and you want to make sure the blanket is going to replace the natural "loft" that you are taking away.

    This speaks of which genes that get turned on/off in an animal due to it's environment/fertilization circumstance.
    Epigenetics can happen to any animal regardless of the parent being a clone or...

    Good catch.
    I was just giving advice from the pedigree and the seller had it listed as a TB. Obviously she is not unknown from the information you have provided to the OP.
    Even more reason to go...

    Pablo is a nice stallion. But the dam side is not complete so she should look at the horse in front of her. Treat it like an unknown for purchasing. Might turn out to be a lovely horse. I would go...

    Possible.
    The futurity races are a more recent thing so that doesn't explain the first 200 years. And you have to wonder if the eventing lines were not good for the track, why didn't eventers use...

    Here is a thought for the topic.
    Sometimes a line is rare because of a war or the lines were lost during an absence of use. But you have to wonder why that line was not used more in the last 300...

    I am not sure why some one would pay to create a horse that is already out there and probably cheaper to buy. I am not a fan of the outcross. It can have good results and it can be a mess.
