    Please take a second look at my comment. The bell had not been rung yet. We were sitting at the TOP of the Alltech arena. Do you know how far away that is from the ring? And we were not whooping...

    1) I love that Valegro is so mellow that his friends and his groom hack him.
    2) I learned a new word - faff. Had to look it up and am now waiting for a chance to work it into a conversation...

    I second Western Horseman. I love reading it and I don't even ride Western. Great reading!

    Haffies make great driving horses. Perhaps he could be a great partner to someone who pleasure drives. Just another angle to find him a good home that can use and enjoy him without making him...

    (Since I have to work in my WEG attendance whenever possible :lol:)

    I just wish I could have seen them in person again. I learned by going to Normandy that there's something missing when you watch...

    Ghettozoo, this is no reflection on you but I am amazed that these folks think they are going to get an offer on this horse of any amount of $$. You can see from the posts on this thread that most...

    As someone who *does* own a horse with true early onset melanomas (he already had them at age 3) - and who was as stupid as someone could be when buying a horse with this problem - please pay...

    You obviously are not familiar with the infamous Arabian measuring stick! :lol:

    If that is the horse, the addition of Saddlebred adds yet another dimension. NSHs can be sweethearts or they can...

    Horses don't do well on goat feed. Especially horses prone to ulcers and prone to getting high as a kite on feed with mostly corn.

    Asking me to lie for you when someone comes to try a horse causes...

    No, not at all. I completely get what you mean. This whole business of gifts/tips/bonuses is really personal and I doubt anyone would criticize what you're doing at all. And besides, what does a gift...

    To me, a tip is something you give at the time of service. I don't tip anyone that works with my horse at any time. I do give thank you gifts around Christmas. I am very appreciative of my farrier...

    Please, please post them...:lol:

    I am the sole boarder at an Arab show barn, run by a lifelong trainer who used to manage multimillion dollar horses during the roaring 80s. He is thinking about...

    Alas! Not an Arabian. Do a little stalking and you will see it's a QH. Not that I think the Arab people are much less guilty of lacking sense sometimes when breeding, but... might as well state the...

    They don't have to be drafts to go nekkid! Moved from a dressage barn to an all Arab show barn, and guess which barn does the most blanketing? Hint: the horses there are *really* big!

    So this...

    Oh sweetie, I wish I could give you a big ole hug.

    And then I would tell you about this book that helped my son so very much with his depressive episodes.

    Just doing this for the record. I can't tell you how many times I've forgotten to quote one of these kind of posts, and then they go poof!

    It's called antigenic drift, which I also think would be a good band name.

    We've got a bad case of topic drift here too. :winkgrin: I wonder if the OP feels like she got her question answered????

    So it would be a much more productive use of your time to figure this out instead of trashing poor, maligned, incompetent George Morris. Use the search feature and search on carrot stick. Much more...

    Around here, 30 miles one way or the other makes all the difference. Specialized dressage barns south of Dayton are much more expensive - probably pushing $800- $1000 a month at some places. Get...

    You are right. I had it backwards. Shame on me! LOL!

    Except maybe George Morris. Although I'm sure he doesn't give a tinker's d*mn about what someone thinks on COTH, much less someone anonymous! (And, for the record, I'm a hacker dressage rider whose...

    Not trying to be tooooo disrespectful, but this thread came immediately to mind. If fruit roll ups are involved, or sugar, I would suspect the foam means exactly nada! :lol:
