    Great mare, great partnership. What a wonderful testimony to the care the mare received that she lived to such a ripe age!

    Uh oh. I'm in the same category as ACME. Maybe we're on the Group W bench?

    This is such a tough problem. I have NO idea how to correct it in a horse that will do it on its own time (no bridle on).

    But my OTTB mare has gone from sticking it out all the time to being...

    Can't remember where, but I thought I saw a report that ATD had said something quite like that way at the beginning of this thing.

    Putting on my "what if" cap (which hurts, by the way) the only way a new company owner could rehabilitate MB at this point would be with the co-operation of Arthur T. A store like Hannaford's could...

    According to this morning's Globe, there's another potential buyer, but only for Arthur S's portion. Unidentified, but speculation that it's Hannaford's.

    If that's how a hapless primate rides, I ride like a primordial invertebrate.

    So I'm 62, average height and a bit on the low normal side of weight. I got Judo, wrestling and endurance bicycling. Unsuitable for lawn bowling as well.

    Say what?

    A really good question with terrific advice. I'm looking forward to reading more, but can't resist putting my two cents in, of course.

    I love hot OTTB mares. In addition to tense, and forward,...

    We aren't big meat eaters in our family, but are huge fans of the fish counter at our local MB (Rowley). It's known as one of the tattier stores, but it always clean, the fish impeccably fresh, the...

    I didn't get to watch much as I was in the scoring trailer all day. A sense of unreality sets in by about the 75th rider and all one can do is focus on the results, not step back and analyze. ...

    So sorry for the issues you're facing! You've had some really experienced folks give you great advice above (and I'm sure more will chime in below). I'm just going to throw out some other things to...

    Thanks, fordtraktor. Maybe Reynard Ridge will comment if the recipe sounds like what she had?
