    My cousin hates the word moist, but I can't find out why because she won't talk about it.

    Be careful with those sticks. They can be launched like a spear into your eye socket. Warning from Alfredo Hernandez.

    Oh jeez! Drawstraws, you have hardware inside and out. Ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow!!! I will not whine about my numerous accidents this year, large and small, on top of the two foot surgeries. I am totally...

    Wow, I feel even luckier after reading some of these stories! Dang, but it hurts. Part of the problem is I can't and won't sit still, and haven't had much of a chance to rest it -- rode the stinker...

    Nice bruises everyone.



    In that case I have missed a lot of doctor's appointments!

    I have switched to regular aspirin, since it is a blood thinner as well as anti-inflammatory/analgesic.

    Yes, I saw some of that but not during the TEST. The test is what counts -- no judging of the warm-up. :)

    No, I don't have a Game Ready machine but I have numerous ice packs in the rotation and I just fasten them on with an ace bandage. I also have a few different arnica products and I will switch to...

    That's what you get for driving that Japanese junk! :lol: You need a purpose-bred European sports car!!
  10. Kicked! Another lucky:unlucky sort of thread (and bruise contest challenge)

    First, let me confess this was entirely my fault. Of course it was -- as it always is with horses.

    Last Thursday I received love kick from my wonderful 17-hand, 4 y/o, steel-shod warmblood. It...

    Wild extrapolations aside, the lengthened trot begins at the 11:51 mark of the video and goes across the diagonal (this is the lengthening in the test, the one that is actually judged). How can you...

    Perhaps, but Thoroughbreds are bred for speed and endurance, with long legs and long sloping shoulders to give them a sweeping, ground-covering stride. Pretty much the opposite of the Andalusian.

    Interesting. I don't see him on the forehand, I see a young, developing horse at his first show, doing quite well. As for the tempo, well, you can always slow the video a bit to your liking. :D I...

    Thanks for the video.

    With this the diagonal advanced placement can now be seen in action, with the horse moving at liberty and under saddle. And you can see it in both the landing and the...

    Abgard would have 2.53 grams omeprazole per tube versus 2.28 grams in gastrogard, so .25 g more.

    No, the photos of Valegro do not show ANY problem.



    No, that is not correct!

    Positive advanced diagonal placement holds that if the hind leg comes down a fraction earlier than the foreleg,...

    I hate flying. Seats are designed by sadists who flunked ergonomics 101.

    But, I'd rather share part of my seat with a fat person than sit next to a skinny SMELLY person for four hours.:dead:

    Just go out and find a recent YouTube video...
