    They were, but they're nice people, and were kinder and more circumspect about the situation than I ever would have been. :D

    Gumtree, I've never seen the 'M' mean a maiden win. It has always in programs meant that the horse was a maiden. I guess it looks nicer than 0-0-1.

    The horse finished third in one race. It...

    I saw a yearling in the Harrisburg catalogue out of the mare Gluteus Maximus. They'd named him Nice Rs Blue Chip.

    As a TB person new to the SB industry, it's been a learning curve. One thing that isn't different, though, is the fact that the money/prestige is in the 2- and 3-year-olds. Thus Jeff Gural's (new...

    Generally speaking, they race every week during the season, so that number is consistent with that. For example, the leading money-winning pacer this year, McWicked (a 3YO) has 23 starts. The fan...

    One needn't be a handicapper to appreciate the American Racing Manual. Just bear in mind that the 2014 version is a comprehensive retrospective for the 2013 racing season; the 2014 version (the...

    I have the Showsupatmybackdoorskinnyandhowling breed. I wasn't aware I'd put up a sign outside, but they seem to find me. On the bright side, they make great indoor-only pets.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. I needed more nurse mares on a Standardbred farm in one year than I did in 15 with Thoroughbreds. Why? Because it has nothing to do with shipping to breed, and everything to...

    Skinning of an animal to cover up (or match) scent is sooo 19th-early 20th century. These days, it's as simple as Vicks Vapo-Rub. If you even need it.

    I know of at least one nurse mare owner who insisted that his stallion be used to rebreed the nurse mare.

    Of course, if/when she doesn't get in foal, you're still on the hook and don't get a...

    This has already been explained. Foals are either left behind in a stall with attendants for a couple hours while the mare makes the trip to be bred, or the foal goes with the mare and stays in the...

    TB breeders do not use nurse mares so they can send a mare to be rebred. The foal either goes with, or (more often) stays behind in a stall for a few hours. If they are shipping to another state,...

    Fair enough. I, as a journalist, had no real issue with it. I did not (and do not) find it offensively intrusive. And I stand by my position that one should behave better, period.
