    I've always had TB's - they definitely have a "brain" although it's usually working 500 mph a minute! In my experience, TB's have such amazing hearts and will do so much for those who take care of...

    I don't even want to get into the politics of the selection process, but I am incredibly disappointed in Margie's response to the situation as seen on the COTH. Perhaps she should have taken time to...

    I haven't read through all the pages, but back to Calvaro's original question - in the Midwest, a really nice, competent, sound and sane high A/O jumper runs between 50K - 150K. Lesser end of the...

    I haven't read through all the pages, but I was so glad to see GM's commentary! I, too, have heard this lament from him in clinics.

    Smiles - I don't know if his nickname is "the Chemist" but he's one h*ll of a salesman! Every horse is "8 or 9 years old" and "completely sound".

    After reading all this, I have two very random thoughts:

    1) So, drug testing is random, correct? This summer, I started to think they were following me from show to show. I was tested at 3 out...
