    It certainly does not apply to horses with long bodies and/or short legs. Some QHs, drafts and ponies come to mind.

    I don't think that anyone here has advocated that the entire family (let alone the universe) stop eating meat because a child doesn't want to do so.

    I think that a lot of doctors still tell their overweight and heart disease patients to cut down on red meat for two reasons. 1. because it is usually densely caloric, and 2. because there are many...

    Except that it is not uncommon for children to have a "crisis of conscience" about eating animals. That is what makes it so different from many other choices. Personally, I wouldn't discourage a...

    There are anorexic kids. There are bulimic kids. There are kids who will only eat white colored food (I knew one!) There are psychotic kids who eat hair. I don't think that anyone can draw any...

    To be fair, it is confusing for people who just can't wrap their head around not eating meat. I encounter many of them in my mother's generation (she's 85) who were homemakers brought up on the USDA...

    It is puzzling. I have actually never met such a person (who claims to be a vegetarian while eating chicken salad.) Perhaps this person is being called/calling themselves a vegetarian because they...

    Actually, as a lacto-ovo pescatarian, I can tell you that it is other people who almost invariably call me a "vegetarian." I wish I had a nickel for every time that I heard someone call me a...

    I am coming late to this thread and can't read it all. I just wanted to add that the OP may find the book by Jonathan Safran Foer titled "Eating Animals" to be enlightening. As a vegetarian...

    Not a problem for me. I don't have the money or the skill to ride any of those few elite horses that there are in the world.

    I also won't play in the NFL or go to the Olympics in any sport, so I...

    Pluvinel- Actually, breeding trends are also the result of stallion testing and mare approval by the breed registries and by materiale classes, not just the riding classes.

    I'm reading "A Street Cat Named Bob" by James Bowen, and it's delightful so far.

    Yes, sorry, I was referring to the Klimke and Neckerman videos. The SRS horses clearly do shift the weight back and lower the haunches. I don't find them to be loose and supple like modern dressage...

    Nope. Not queen of the world yet. Can't make up your own words and expect the rest of the world to use them. Sorry. :rolleyes:

    Insert those same words to describe any other Olympic sport of the same sort. Diving, skating, snowboarding, etc.

    It doesn't make any sense does it?

    Tell you what. When you are queen of...

    Quick! Somebody call the Olympic Committee! Since 1912 (over a century) they have been giving medals out for something that is not a sport. OMG!

    Yes, the sport of dressage was never intended to be haute e'cole. The airs above ground, work between the pillars and the quadrille (and Pas de Deux, etc.) have never, ever been part of the sport. ...

    I guess I must have yours. At least 30 inches here and still snowing like crazy. High winds and tidal storm surge. Pretty serious stuff.
