    If you speak of the F-line today you are assumed to be speaking of those from Furioso, not the old Werther-turned-F line. It is definitely not the same thing even if it feels similar under saddle :)...

    Another of the Fs that I have on my 'to use' list! I love that he keeps the back short, he also seems to give an overall very compact outline with very good limbs. I've heard he may not refine as...

    Her feet clearly need some protection from wear and deterioration. The best shoe for this is one with plenty of support i.e. steel, wide webbed, plenty of heel, and a decent thickness. This equals a...

    I agree. Her 'roundness' is not due to her pregnancy at this point. I'm not sure what the sensitivity is but would assume it's not pregnancy related either. But I can't say that for sure.
