    Those Antares bridles look gorgeous for sure, but they cost $600! :eek:

    DWB is Danish WB. Samber was Dutch WB - KWPN, to be exact. There is another Dutch registry NRPS, but KWPN is the "royal" one.

    But these types of misrepresentations have been going on for a long...

    Jazz is now 24 y/o, so don't know if he meets your criteria of "siring foals well into his 20's", but he does have several hundred offspring listed on HorseTelex that he sired at age 20 or later...

    Has anyone here done a green card sponsorship?

    Just a reminder that the auction will close next Monday evening (Feb. 2), and there are no plans for a 2nd round auction.

    I think it was Jaap Pot (a 4-time Olympic judge, for those of you unfamiliar with the name) who once referred to the brilliance of a top dressage horse as "akin to a controlled explosion."

    I'm guessing Bill Mahr is one of the guys who felt "unmanned" by the movie. :winkgrin:

    We had a few some years ago, but they became hard and lumpy as the hulls dried out. Now the only thing I use it for is to support my back when I am sleeping on my side.
