    I agree.

    Cesar's not an angel but I think the court got it right with this case. I suspect Miranda saw dollar signs and a chance for 15 minutes of fame, but this case stunk from the start. I...

    What a way to make a new poster feel welcomed. What is wrong with some of you? Nobody needs to know who did the AI or when she was ultrasounded to answer the OP's question.

    OP, definitely...

    :yes:

    You can breed your pinto mares to Sempatico for $2000 (less for the non-pintos.) You could have bought State of the Art at auction last week for what, $5000? This stallion's stud fee is...

    I noticed that too. Maybe "terrible" isn't what came to mind, but definitely the impression that he's not easy. Trailering and clipping were the only things where he ranked on the positive side of...

    It says he's only available fresh (I'm assuming that's not an option for DY.) Nice stallion though!

    You've posted in the past of being new to the area, struggling to fill a clinic, hard to meet people, and difficulties getting people to look at your sales horses. I'd tread lightly because this...

    "Fairer"? It's a schooling show for heaven's sake, it's not like the scores count for anything. It's all about the experience, and having a greenie leave the arena bucking isn't a very good...

    This.

    Plus, it's Florida, there are big name trainers around every corner. People aren't exactly starved for good instruction or desperate for clinics with big names. It's also not as easy as it...

    The ad on pg 53 is a USDF ad not a TDF ad. The TDF ad is on pg 48 and is "Grant recipient Gigha Steinman with Lexington". They're both great pictures.

    I'm a huge fan of Centerline Scores. It's great for checking how honest an "FEI trainer" is and for looking up scores for horses for sale.

    If I could make one tweak to the CLS Rider Rating...

    The articles are correct, even if someone's interpretation of them is not. In fact they directly rebut some of the wrong assumptions made in this thread. ;)

    If you google "diagonal advanced placement" there's actually an assortment of articles out there about it. This article is among the first to come up and is pretty clear, and for those wanting more...

    People have different interpretations of small and unknown, obviously. Daventry, River Oaks Farm and Home Again Farm may be small but they've got reputations to back them up, which makes it easier...

    ^^ This.

    As a buyer I'll scroll right past horses registered with some registries. There's usually a reason they're registered that way, so I'm not interested.

    You're wrong about AWS. Both parents don't have to be approved for AWS, they don't even have to be registered with AWS (they don't even have to be registered at all.) Heck, they don't even have to...

    The difference is that while there may be some "top working horse stud fees" which are high, they're the minority. There's also a huge percentage of backyard QH/Paint stallions with stud fees in the...

    Fun thread, great ideas. From a PR standpoint, Totilas. That would be a cross to garner excitement from non breeders as well, AND likely to be fantastic.

    Those are lovely horses and the obvious result of well thought out breeding. More examples that are not the typical Friesian cross.

    That's not your typical Friesian cross either. You and Donatella have posted horses anyone would recognize for their quality.
