    My point about Bayhawk is that he is resorting to name calling. I mentioned that there are people who have their own opinions and goals when it comes to breeding horses and that's fine. Just like...

    I think this is absolutely true. There are a lot of very nice horses who sell by word of mouth and don't ever make it onto the open market. Or, some who are sold after only having been on the market...
