And there we have it! The emperor has no clothes! :)
JD, can you explain this?
JD, is this your work as well?
Is this your work? :eek: Poor horse.
I think the more important question is how much would you sell your horse for? Isn't that the truer measure of a horse's worth?
The horse's bare hoof has been proving its worth even longer! :lol:
There you go, [Tom]!
Well said! :yes:
I'm not interested in inferential statistics. I am looking for scientific proof that it is impossible for a barefoot horse to ever outperform a shod horse. Can you supply this proof or not?
You and I know how much they have contributed to the modern WB, but that doesn't change the fact that they were TBs. So according to slick, their descendents are mere TB crosses! :lol:
Anything that isn't a Morgan! ;)
don't feed the troll...
Likewise, there is no BUA group. However, there is a pro-horse group. I am proud to be a member of that group.
Anecdotes are not scientific evidence, Tommy. :lol: I am looking for scientific, peer-reviewed proof that it is impossible for a barefoot horse to outperform a shod horse.
Except you keep trying so desperately to convince people of a "reality" which does not exist! What is your agenda?
Wow, there is so much wisdom in this statement. :yes:
If it rubs you the wrong way, please ask yourself why.
I am waiting for my peer-reviewed, scientific evidence that it is impossible for such horses to exist. :lol:
I agree 100% :yes:
Wait, I thought slick was describing WBs? :lol:
Likewise, shoes are not a prerequisite for a successful life.
They are often, however, the stumbling block in a long and healthy one.
I have been asked when I was going to "move up." That type of person doesn't mean any harm. They just don't get it.
Maybe you would be interested in the actual facts surrounding the situation? Or is that too much to ask? :lol:
All sources indicate that overreaching caused him to tear his bulb. This is caused by...
I'm still waiting for the proof that it is physically impossible for a barefoot horse to outperform a shod horse.
Responsible horse owners do not care about winning. They care first and foremost...
His foot fell apart because of overreaching. Tom says long toes help horses run faster, but apparently it doesn't help the foot stay in one piece! :lol:
Was it a barefoot trimmer who was responsible?
What is she talking about now? :lol::lol::lol:
slick, many fancy imported horses succeed in spite of all of these faults. And most importantly, their owners love them. What exactly are you...
