    Two to three feet expected where I am (and where mare is boarded, 24 miles away.) DH is getting tired of me nagging at him about storm preparation, but he cleverly sent *me* to the grocery store,...

    DY thanks for speaking up. I do miss the more sport-focused discussion... You will note that I basically never comment on the "which WB stallion should I choose to improve X, Y, and Z in my mare"...

    I was off for 25 years and took my first "re rider" lesson at age 42. What I remember: the lesson was on a Icey and was taught by his owner who was a friend of mine (she was a qualified riding...

    Um, King Abdullah was 90 and known to be in very poor health, had been declining, etc... My guess is that "trip to Saudi Arabia in the not too distant future for memorial" was already penciled in.

    Lady E makes a very good point -- people don't buy young horses because they can't see how to get them from young and unstarted to safe under saddle. Not to mention that keeping a young horse costs...

    I was just pointing out that the top level WB world and the top level Morgan world have the same problem: some people are breeding for the top of the market, which is quite different from the rest of...

    OP, I don't think you're doing anything wrong. Also, based on other peoples' responses, it sounds like PC at your barn may be particularly anal.

    I have to say, though, that when I returned to...

    Manni -- the more people say stop putting down other horses, the more you do exactly that. It started with Drum horses, then draft crosses, Friesians and their crosses (including Mystic Oak Ranch's...

    Some things that say dry clean only really are. I caught heck from my mom, way back when, when I accidentally washed her favorite linen-blend suit jacket.

    Dryell sheets are great. If I wanted a...

    I think one place where a Pelham *could* be useful is for horses who are "ready for the double" but have tiny mouths -- like many Morgans (OP's and my breed of choice.) Yes, Morgans get ridden in a...

    AKB is right. So is TrueColors. I don't want anyone to stop breeding what they love, but they MUST know the shape of today's market and have a good lead on what the market will be like in 5 years...

    Morgan mare, almost 17. She does have arthritis, but most people think she's under 10, which makes some of them think I bought a green 3 YO as a first horse (I'm not that dumb!)
