Anyone who thinks a Percheron has similar conformation to a Lipizzan obviously has no clue on what to look for in conformation. The length of the croup is much longer, as is the...
Unfortunately, it has been en vogue since 1979 to make excuses as to why "the greatest champion horse the world has ever seen" lost the big race.
Perhaps because these days people seem to want...
How about The Jim Dandy -
Crushed ice. 1 1/2 shots of Jim Beam.
Tonic water. Splash of pomegranate.
Make one and tell me what it tastes like.
Well, I did watch the live race, and they even had a camera above BB in the starting gate, and he was standing there so calm he looked like he was falling asleep. I think BB is - normally and...
Fun Factoid Of The Day ~
Pigs do not sweat. They have no sweat glands. This is why they prefer to spend their time in the mud when it's hot outside.
"Oh, I am so screwed! Now they'll be sending Vito The Bone-Crusher around to have a little chat with me."
He was a very, very good horse; but I personally do not consider him great: He wasn't around long enough to prove himself.
Seattle Slew raced 17 times?? Really? I must be getting senile. I...
"...You see him three times come back to try and overtake Affirmed..."
Lol! Seems like Affirmed always did only go fast enough to just keep that chestnut head-with-blaze in front of the other...
I feel most really, really good geldings can go on to become great as long as they stay sound and keep their competitive drive. John Henry and certainly Exterminator were great.
IMO, Forego was indeed one of the great ones.
I feel Secretariat was probably great because he did race and win over different distances, surfaces, track conditions, tracks, against some very good...
Yes. I know. That was the point of my post. People are calling horses great who have never proved themselves.
5 or 6 wins against your own age are not proof of greatness.
Breaking down and having...
I believe you did not understand the sentence.
The meaning was:
If greatness was measured only by how beloved a race horse was, then even a fictional character (like The Black) could be...
I am seeing so many people gushing about certain really nice race horses - some living, some deceased - how great they were/ are.
I am of the old school that race horses must actually prove...
Who the hell ever said it was a color breed?!? :rolleyes:
For purposes of identification, it is better not to call a mare "him" or a chestnut "that pretty brown horse". It makes one sound foolish,...
Yes. If someone tells me they're "into Arabs", I cautiously ask "what type?".
I won't have anything to do with halter/park people :no: :mad:
Endurance & sport types are wonderful animals.:yes:...
Some more confusing terminology.
(please correct me if I'm wrong - these were the terms some years ago, and they may have changed them)
In the Tb world there is no such thing as a 'true black'...
Heroin. Heroin was very big at the track way back when. That's the reason it's called "horse".
Or so I've read.
Now that's one I will remember to use next time someone says it. Thanks for the great line. :lol:
:lol: :lol: :lol:
I did not know this. Or rather; I was vaguely aware of the different usages of terminology, but never considered the why it was used that way - because ~ sire gets 100 vs....
I would certainly be willing to bet that BB's connections do not mind/are encouraging any talk of his quarter crack because they'd like people to think:
- If he loses there is an excuse.
Yes, a quarter crack.
I was able to google it, and came up with this:
Big Brown's slight hoof injury shouldn't derail Triple bid
They made it sound as if this was an injury that had just happened...maybe today.
I'll keep listening. They're suppose to announce it.
TVG just announced it would have more info later. I have no further insight. Anyone know?
Who can even make sense of these words?
"haved"? HUH?!? You mean "halved"? "have"? Or what?
I take it English is your second language, then.
BTW, I said...
Now WHERE did you get that I said pet food COMPANIES?!?
Nice jumper, there. To conclusions.
