    I really like Dortmund and was bummed that he didn't have the reserves to dig in. Maybe that quick gate start zapped his legs. I'll stick with him in the Preakness, but if he isn't at least second...

    Years and years ago I bought a six yo ottb gelding. No vet check, he would drag his rear toes. Once he learned to move forward on collection it went away. He was as sound as could be. I rode him in...

    Haha! Great "before" shot. :) It's hard to make an assessment on one pic, but I sure liked his hindquarters.

    Sorry to hear you lost your boy.

    I think you're on to something (or on something :) ). A chipmunk dairy: milk, boot cleaning, oil and fur. Genius!

    Looks like it is the saddling/jockey-up area. Once all equipment is on and checked I'm assuming the handler would walk the horse out to join the line when it's track time.

    I was a bit shocked by that statement. He may be a little on the plain side for some, but I think he is gorgeous in a ruggedly handsome way! And I also like that bigger head with large ears. :)

    Looking at the rest of their boot descriptions I think it might be the writer. Maybe they need Elaine from Seinfield to put the best spin on their products. Ha!

    Aha! That makes much more sense. There is another boot style with the description "Smooth bay brown". Gosh, amazing what a comma will do. :)

    That's what I was thinking! Chipmunks are small and why would you want oil from them? There so many other types to use. ???

    Handling a hot wired race horse, regardless of sex or gelding, is a lot different than handling a stallion acting badly.

    Racehorse dumping energy is so not the same as a stallion being nasty...

    Chipmunk oil? For leather?

    In looking for a pair of barn and riding boots I saw some that were "Chipmunk oiled leather". They are by Roper and are listed in the Valley Vet Supply 2015 late spring catalog. Item #19540,...

    I don't think the mare would have won the battle with a cat that size. My mare and foal would be inside if I lived in an area like that. What a scary video!

    I like him. And for a thin, out of shape horse his back looks good to me. I especially like his hindquarters.

    Swayback pad

    I just saw this in a magazine. Made by Cashel and called a Swayback Cushion Pad. I'm wondering if it would fill in the dip behind the withers better than my current pad.

    I don't know about a condition, but years ago I rode an Appy that had a back that was referred to as roach or ridgeback. He was a really nice jumper, never lame. Perhaps that's not what you mean...
