    Larkspur, that is actually really interesting - I have always been under the impression it was the tongue taking most of the action. Thanks for the contribution! I stand corrected.

    You don't have opposing forces on a close area of bone, with little tissue to dampen the impact. I'm happy to rephrase it to say that. The nutcracker effect of the snaffle is mostly on the tongue,...

    I'm not going to change the title. When there are major discrepancies in the media about an athlete retiring during the Olympics for health reasons, it brings up questions. Especially when that...

    Parzival - hairline fracture?

    So of course we all heard about Parzival's retiring yesterday mid-test. My first thought was - how odd. I was under the impression that completing for your team, come hell or high water, was drilled...

    How do we get more mares on the podium? Gender bias toward our equine athletes is astonishing. How often do you hear "gelding or non-marish mare?" :D

    I would bet money that Glen isn't feeling well. Two uncharacteristic performances (and Clark said he just dropped behind the leg in dressage and lost it with no outward explanation, then definitely...

    Wow, I have no dog in this fight, barely follow eventing CA news, and this still stinks like big fat lies. Curious timing, too, don't you think?! Not that horses don't do things to themselves on the...

  12. Gray horses - yay or nay? (Buying/Selling)

    Some people advise against buying gray horses for resale, because some buyers won't touch them (melanomas, cleaning, etc). On the other hand, a lot of OTTB places seem to indicate that grays fly off...

    With that update, the chiro would be my first call. And I would call another chiro (preferably who is also a vet and not just a human chiro who also works on horses - never seen one that is very...

    That's pretty funny, because we found this guy here near Portland. You two swapped. It's a little sad to see a horse of this pedigree running $1500 claimers, as I think he went for like $49k at...

    What an interesting topic. I don't think the car buying analogy works here, because that's a 1-time sale item with an understood bartering system. Professional services and/or consulting, which is...
