    Mustang Savvy -- you need to read the articles you posted. Both say NO ONE REALLY KNOWS why they do it. The ASPCA article lists 5 reasons why a dog might display this behavior, including...

    If this is a public function (like a dinner party), one is EXPECTED to make conversation. You don't just bury your face in your mashed potatoes and slurp away.

    Believe me, you are the smart one. Youngsters are more affordable, but I maintain it is close to impossible for even experts to judge the upper level ability of horses under 5 or 6.

    Are you breeding LC or with shipped semen? Because I can't see how you could breed any mare with shipped semen without having a vet ultrasound sound them.

    Not uncommon for mares to refuse to tease...

    As others have said it is impossible to accurately judge a foal or yearling an FEI prospect. All one has to do is look at how many THOUSANDS of foals are produced each year and how many reach FEI,...

    I don't think it makes a difference what the Arabs were bred for, and in fact many farms that breed for Arab racing sell off their retired/failed stock to endurance riders.

    MHO is that you cannot truly deem a horse an FEI prospect till they are at least 3-4 yrs old. This is why FEI riders (or at least GP pros) don't usually buy weanlings.
