    I've broken a lot of babies and generally have found that you create their attitude, barring any physical problems. Sure, some are more laid back and some are born worriers, but I've never found them...

    I agree w/blugal-lots are not packers but learning to bring out the best in every type of horse is good riding in my book. Too many horses that are just plain scary tend to produce a rider who's so...

    If you sell it, someone will not only buy it, but also recommend it to all her friends. All we need is a nice catchy name="Sure Swaps" ? "Fix-a-Change"?

    Well, i would say not at all- especially since all of them rely on starting/ending points that allow for a lot of fudge room. I'd say that all that you can count on is that a malnourished baby will...
