    My vet just recently told me that Dr. Hartman does several ETs a day, seven days a week, from March through September. So I'm thinking your information that he's not doing that any more may be...

    Pricing him going forward. The potential buyer is really bummed it didn't work out and she is still kind of clinging to the idea of buying him. She said she was going to get copies of the shots for...

    Just keep in mind that if you ever want to sell him, you may not have an easy time getting what you paid for him... or even half what you paid for him.

    I have had experience in this area somewhat....

    I recommend Dr. Hartman as well. ET is his specialty, and he has I believe somewhere around 800 recip mares. He and my vet are friends, and I bred a mare to one of the stallions he stands there.

    I don't have a lot of experience starting horses. I started my QH colt who is the same age as this colt. He is easy, peasy though. I don't know if I have it in me to start this guy. He has a lot...

    Well, one bonus is the PPE vet said he had the best temperament of any two year warmblood he has seen. There's one selling point!

    Oh, crap. He told me he should be fine with flat work. I assumed that meant he would pass him as a dressage horse. Now if he says he would worry about dressage that will be a real bummer! A...
