    I won a preliminary horse trial on a horse blind in one eye (eventually had to have it removed - glaucoma). He lost sight in it when he was 17. He coped just fine. Unless he was a very spooky...

    Meh. All the remakes have to f**k around with the original. Even the earlier and much better version of Flicka (a CHESTNUT) departed quite a bit from its source (e.g., Ken's brother was totally...

    I have to think that Appies are the WORST candidates for the Pepperoni method. I know my first two Appies (heavily Foundation bred), would have ignored the Peps, or schooled THEM. You didn't mess...

    I think The Bay Lady may have been a semi-documentary about a noted barrel racer? My mind blanks on her name right now, but she was still barrel racing a few years back on a BIG QH named "Orange...

    Yeah, food now, keeping loading, eventually no food, at least not as a bribe. I pretty much keep hay in the trailer, but from initially standing and staring, then loading with a pat on the butt, my...

    One I cannot find on DVD, and I believe it was a TV movie, is "Stormy," about a TB born too late in the year to race who "struggles to find his place" and ends up as a polo pony.

    Well, as annoyed/amused as I can be by the Pepperonis and their followers, I have to say they aren't the only weirdos out there. We had a gal at our barn much enamored of clicker training. But she...

    Don't know about where Wiley is today, but you do know that other than the actual footage after Wiley got the horse, the rest of that movie is pure Disney fiction? He was bred to be a jumper, by a...

    I was in a van pool at the time. If you'll remember, it was the day of the first SF home game of the World Series at Candlestick. Several of my fellow van pool members, including me, were fiddling...

    Northern Contra Costa County here. Pretty strong looooong rolling shock by the time it reached here. I woke and just lay there thinking, "Ummm....hope this stops soon, or I may have to get up." I...

    Was JG Appaloosas in PA no longer in operation when you were last looking, because there horses were certainly built for the sport horse disciplines?

    I've never paid a whole lot for any horse. Just couldn't/still can't afford it. When I had my first job - in the 60s - I made the magnificent sum of $350 a month. After I'd worked a couple of...

    Well..............I'm an Appaloosa person, so obviously color is one of my criteria....but of course, I've always wanted the classic "black with a spotted blanket" horse. My first two were eventers,...

    Maybe a Quarab that came out on the small side? The later headshot certainly makes me think Quarab. Otherwise, I'd say Welsh/Arab, but I don't think that color is possible with that cross?

    Thanks. As I said, the article was around 6 months old. Still, obviously, she still has a base out of which to operate, so unless Daddy is now charging her rent, he's underwriting her efforts at...

    Does he play or like to watch golf? Does any golfer every think his game is perfect and that it cannot be improved, either by practice, practice, practice or instruction? The comparison might help...

    Trainer is a 40 minute trailer ride away, so not practical, esp. since my only vehicle is my Silverado 2500 HD! Five days a week in commute traffic after work - nah. I'll just have to live with a...

    Yeah, that was pretty much my take. Again, darn. Oh well - my guy isn't much of a trail horse, so it isn't like I'll miss trailriding. Sigh. I was gonna work on that too, before the wet...

    I don't know about that model, but I really liked my SW Maxx Dressage saddle - until my horse "outgrew" it to the point where it could not be modified to fit him properly. I sold it with reluctance....
