    Wow! Thanks so much. It wasn't available a year or two ago. I guess I ought to check more frequently! Still would like to get that "Kentucky" one, though.

    There are two movies I would like to get my hands on and they apparently aren't available. One is "Gallant Bess." Now there IS a movie by that name available, but it's not the one I'm talking...

    I keep dying my hair, and darn it, no one gets up and gives me a seat on the commute train. (I still work full time.)

    When I bought my guy, I wasn't so foolish as to start him myself. I sent him to a cowgirl. She said he was "easy," but when daylight savings ended, riding at night, in the cold and the wind....not...

    Those little flexible plastics"mini curry combs" you'll see at drugstore/dollar store type places that are actually pocket combs/brushes for men's hair. They're about 50 cents, and wonderful for...

    My Toby-line Appy gaited (sometimes), and his "gait" was basically a single-foot. Don't know if that is a true "Indian shuffle" but certainly closer than a four-beat canter.

    My saddle now is technically brown, but it's such a dark brown, it looks black. My old saddle was a definite reddish brown and I showed with a light charcoal grey coat. If I'd been able to find a...

    I rode a friend's horse in her Ansur dressage saddle, and I will say this: You better have an independent, secure seat, because that saddle does not give the rider much, if any, support. I found it...

    When an entire television program touts the "discovery," sounds to me like they're making a big deal of it.

    As far as gaiting goes, I'm just saying that you're unlikely to find the Indian...

    Just saying this isn't new news. Haines' book is 50+ years old, and I'm sure there were several years research before it was published, so it seems odd to present this as a "mystery solved" now. ...

    I don't think she's been paying attention: "The Appaloosa" by Francis Haines, published in 1963, very clearly says the Appaloosa horse originated in Central Asia. However, that doesn't mean they...

    Homozygous Appaloosas (few spot leopards, snow caps) often have night blindness, which is not generally a problem. Heterozygous Appaloosas are not nightblind. I've never known an Appy with...

    Okay - Arabians - step aside - Appaloosas (and Knabstruppers) are the oldest breed. (Aside from Prezwalski's horse, of course). Okay, make that the oldest domesticated breed. And people look down...

    Never heard that. I wouldn't think so, based on the Peche Merle paintings of spotted horses which are prehistoric. Maybe confirmed and selected for among domesticated horses by human intervention.
