    He's been the best patient, which is probably a good thing given the size of him lol. He doesn't budge when I'm bent down scrubbing on his leg cleaning out the wound. All he does is lift his leg...

    I'm 5'7" and I don't think I look terrible on my little 15.3 hh TB mare, even though she's quite petite. I never worry about her making strides either. Actually, she was giving my trainer fits last...

    Both of mine are econo-nags if you will.

    So that means what exactly? It doesn't matter? It's not important to those of us that consider it our discipline of choice? It's a figment of our imagination?
