    From your writings, you sound a little disillusioned about the equine industry right now- sellers, trainers, etc.

    I think, with that state of mind, you might consider stepping away from the...

    I would like to add that I almost bought a true rearer, when I was first looking to buy a horse in the US.

    I am going to share about our horse, though I am not sure, if I can explain my experience well.

    GoForAGallop, thank you for the link. I will check their tires. I did notice previously, Firestones, we were looking at, were offered at better price there. I would like to see their DOT before...

    Thank you for your replies.

    I will keep tow/haul on, while driving through our rolling hills from now on.
