    My vet is terrific. he wont surcharge for weekends or evenings. He just says he wasn't doing anything anyhow ...

    ^^^ The young lady that is riding my horses for me is a very good, very talented young rider. When she got on my one Draft cross mare (Clyde / Pinto) she laughed and said "OMG! Its like sitting in a...

    That's it - exactly - IMO.

    Wow Manni01. Could you be any more condescending?! :no:



    I am betting that there are TB's that buck in the canter, Hanoverians, Trakehners, Selle Francais's, Quarter Horses, Morgans, etc, etc

    This again hits the nail on the head. There - of course - WILL still be a market for the fancy WB show horses. But it is shrinking. F-A-S-T ... The market that is emerging, growing and thriving, is...

    The ones that are in the $10,000 - $20,000 range and are quiet, reasonable movers, user friendly, etc - could probably sell 20+ more if I could find them and the...
