    No disrespect intended. But I have been in the TB side of things for a long time. Have mentored under and talked to a lot of breeding “gurus”. Have read lots of “modern day” books and articles on...

    I don’t live in Europe and most of the people reading this and on the Forum are not in the position to buy from Europe. So I don’t bother with talking about what’s over there.

    From my Steeplechase experience and perspective. By and large no. Which is contrary to what flat people/trainers think is what we are looking for. We don’t want a horse that “can run all day”. The...

    A horse dreams are made of. Wish he had a better name. Not a bad name just a better one for a horse of his caliber

    “Sweet feed” IMO is a pretty “generic” term, name. How exactly do you, “the director” people in general, especially in this forum define “sweet feed”?

    OCD’s in racehorse were first noticed, identified in the late 80’s if memory serves. It’s not like the appeared out of nowhere better diagnostic equipment became available. The problem was at the...

    I should have been a bit clearer by say when ambient temps are and have been cold to very cold. No it is necessary to “warm up” tires under normal weather conditions before adjusting pressure. I...

    To be clear, if a client “walks away” from their horse and board owed. They owe say, $2,000 in board. You get title to the horse. You either sell for next to nothing and or give away the horse. You...

    I agree.
    I have never found those cheap 12 volt air pumps to be worth the money. Maybe they are better made then the last one I bought 10 year ago. Took FOREVER and they never fully pressurized. A...

    Some States make it very easy a lot don’t. In KY very easy to file a Stablemen’s lien. 30 days, auction on the courthouse steps, buy it back or sell for what and or more than is owed. If bought back...

    Yes, cold tires should not be brought up to pressure without being “warmed up” first by being driven on. Every tire/manufacturer can be a bit different. Most under 40 degrees. Air expands when...

    It’s not as much about damaging the rim as it is the tire’s “sidewalls”. This is a mistake a lot of people make with a car. Me included. The sidewalls are not designed to carry a weighted load in...

    I guess my point was we’re only talking 3-5 acres. Big or very small farms most people would put smaller paddocks that are used frequently “around” the barn and larger paddocks and or fields outside...

    It is a fact that horses are far more capable of dealing with cold then heat. So IMO I would much rather have a “windy, breezy” cool/cold property from time to time in the winter. Than a sweltering...
