    Agreed. And I'm on the buyer side, not the breeder side!

    Price shouldn't be about expenses, but rather about quality and value. And so a very nice foal with upper level potential and great...

    I think it's safe to assume drugs were involved. Holy cow.


    Also, it takes drugs to choose Taco Bell over the decent tasting Mexican breakfast options around here. You notice no one involved...

    Right. You don't ride the papers is about buying a gelding or an aged horse for your kid, or whatever. You breed the genetic material; you ride what's in front of you.
