    What you call a **natural tail** and what the rest of the world sees as one are absolutely not the same thing. You include horses who have had their tails in sets, just because they allegedly aren't...

    What is allowed, and what actually happens are not the same things. County pleasure horses in sets at shows? Check!!

    And, the vast majority of horses who are in the pleasure classes to which you...

    It isn't just the practice of tail cutting, although that is an issue with all of the considerations that have already been listed. It is what is done to have the horse actually carry their tail in...

    I have two horses here whose tails were cut, and set, that you would never know had been done. However, I've seen dozens and dozens more, primarily when I was out at Amish farms, trying to salvage...
  5. You can stretch a tail, but it is seldom done,...

    You can stretch a tail, but it is seldom done, and you still have to deal with the breakover, which is actually the part of the tail that makes it look "broken" to someone outside of the breed.

    I am with LindaC on this, and I have to comment of **dissing's** rant.

    All of the things that you mention do turn people away from the breed, and you are obviously new at entering a discussion or...

    Bad plan- in addition to the above, which is dead on, the creosote will line your flue, and create a possible fire hazard.

    Oldernewbie....

    I think that the top one is Nocturne- it just looks like all of the pix I have seen of him. I remember In Command being backed up a bit more in the bridle. The bottom one is...

    I have a friend who is an emergency room nurse. I have one word that strikes fear into the four hour woody- ICE!! Yes, they literally ice it down.

    Can someone please explain to me how having the guy take Cialis, and then putting he and the object of his affection in separate cast iron clawfooted tubs has a **happy ending**. I am obviously...

    Jeannie- no, it wasn't Wing and PC, and I'm sorry, but as I wasn't **in the barn**, and it is therefore hearsay, I will leave it as it stands.

    Just an observation- In Command would have seriously predated those programs. And of course, all of his great breeding sons would have been accepted in that time frame, without question, and with the...

    I saw In Command and Nocturne, too!! I have to say that while Nocturne was very much in the mold of the older style Morgans, I did think that In Command was a much, much different type. Having said...

    If the horse community is going to attempt to do anything, they need to lawyer up, as a group, if they haven't already, and file an appeal within 30 days of the decision. I have no idea how...

    I have been on both sides of this, since I used to work in Real Estate Development. I have to say that it was truly disturbing to me to watch over and over again just how some of these **empowered...

    There is a sad irony in the fact that Cigar's dam sire, Seattle Slew, also had arthritic issues in his neck, requiring two surgeries that I believe were successful. So sad that his grandson suffered...

    This is just so very sad. I was honored to see Cigar numbers times at KHP over the years. What a gorgeous piece of horse flesh he was!! It is just a tragic end to a wonderful life. Godspeed big horse!

    I have been a member of my breed organization for a long while. I am seriously interested in how different breed organizations actually function. Do you find them to be transparent? Do you find that...

    Thanks so much for your reply, CA. I found it hard to believe that someone didn't know about this guy, if he had caused enough pain to require censure.

    I am deeply sorry for the loss of those...

    I do not know if you can wash the blankets with detergent, and have them stay proofed. I generally wash mine in water, only, and just do an extra rinse if they are nasty- and it seems to work. I...

    I'm guessing not that many folks have tried it. I've done Nikwax, and all of the other stuff, and this beats them all, hands down. Kept my blankets proofed all last winter, without one fail. And it...
