    I'd get a three-quarter ton since you don't know yet what kind of trailer you're getting. It's amazing how quickly weight adds up when you consider the weight of a trailer and the weight of one horse...

    Wisconsin: At home, no, I never keep halters on. When horse is at my trainer's, yes, so it's easier for them to turn-out -- so there I use a cheap leather halter.

    I've always admired Totilas, but never thought about him as a stallion to breed to, especially considering the stud fee. But this November, after my Royal Prince gelding had to be put down due to a...

    I agree with you, Blume Farm. If I had a big herd of mares, I might be more inclined to "take a chance" on a young, unproved stallion. That's why I like to see some offspring on the ground and...

    While you didn't ask me :-), I prefer Follow Me to Fashion Maker because the walk is better and Follow Me's hindquarters go more naturally under him. FM's hocks always seem to be working a bit behind...
  15. The Taming of Totilas vol. 2 is out: Thought-provoking!

    "Volume 2" is out, and I really enjoyed the discussion about the "modern" training system and the "classical." Think I'll stick to the classical system, but you be the judge. Besides, for me it was...
