    I don't post much these days but I have a few things to say. Forget the pulses lingo, what none of you grasped is what the feet were like. Having had t ge yout on a few with "nubs" as feet I can tell...

    Like here you mean where our rules are to FEI standards. To be fair, I'm actually not anti bute. As in used responsibly. I am sick of Dex being used just because. The amount of horses with "hives" is...

    I get where Cartier is coming from. Because on this very board over the years people have said they want to breed for the 2.6-3 ft Ammie market. You can't possibly set the bar lower in terms of...

    I like honesty in SO's. I try and drive around the country and look at loads of stallions. I get that it's much easier where I am. I've pretty much used the same SO for all my warmblood breedings....

    I definitely wouldn't do deals with anyone. Either I pay for training or sell. Those are the only two reasonable options.

    Siegi makes good points. As usual.

    Marydell, only comment I'm going...

    To Tamara

    I can't PM you back as you have too many messages, but yes work away!

    Alluding to an American bred horse that spent at least a year going through the European system is a bit ironic don't you think?

    And that's where the system is broken. It's not a question of the...

    I'm just going to chime in here with the whole studbook thing. I didn't read the article but will. You keep alluding to Euro studbooks and the high standards. Yes, books like Holstein are the best....

    Stung by a bee, not stung by a bee. I think my absolute favorite part is that grooms are now down as "trainers". And the reason is because my lawyer said so.

    So just WTF does a trainer train? As...

    I galloped more than a few AP Indy's. Not one a rig. All had 2. Not saying there weren't any, just that it couldn't have been too heritable. I know it's supposed to be. But I didn't see that. And I...

    Good thing they never gelded AP Indy and used him as a riding horse. Pretty darn successful stallion and also a rig.

    I think a "young horse" school was discussed in previous threads. While a great idea I'm not sure it would ever fly. And to have it running up to standards it would take an awful lot of money to be...

    I would think no. We all know how this goes. The mare needs to recovery from surgery. We know what demands are placed on our mares from the foal in the 1st month. They will be wanting what's best for...

    Blah, same ole same ole. Do we ever evolve as breeders? Do we ever try and put in context what people say even if we're adamant they're wrong?

    I don't know. The writing was on the wall here as early as 2008. In 2009, it was more of a gamble and in 2010 people should have known. This is a very big export country. Be it TB's, sporthorses, or...

    I would just like to say, that a point I made earlier, in Europe they eat their mistakes, well apparently we really do!

    A few years ago we got a GSD dog that was a former coal yard guard dog. He became to docile and so they just let him loose in the streets of Dublin. I called a GSD rescue after our other one died....

    I have a mare that for years refused to wear a rug in the field. As in panicked blindly. Small paddock and stable no problem. One day I just took the tail strap off on a whim and no more issues. I...
