    WFP seems to consider Rolex a good place for a horse's first 4* experience, and he can win. Bay My Hero had his first 4* last year and Freddie Mac this year. Andrew Nicholson has done the same thing...

    Yes it is. The FEI backed away, and any bit that is legal for FEI dressage is legal for FEI eventing dressage.

    I have a couple of fussy mouth TBs. Both need very stable bits. One goes in a full...

    I still would like to see a series that uses old Olympic courses, just to see if they would be considered too easy today. The jump cups today are flatter, the poles are lighter, and the fences may...

    Is George gonna have some more foals to play with when he gets older? I simply cannot see Kiss wanting to keep up with him; and after he's weaned? Is Misty too old for him?

    Hey, maybe it will entice some more of the nouveau .01 to get their kids to take up riding so they can hang out with the rich and famous.

    What sort of temperament does Silver Twist throw? Most of the Twist line are not famous for being easy, and Abdullah certainly wasn't.

    Can your trainer get around a XC course?

    I would suggest that you take him hunting, but the season is over.

    If you're having fun with her and can afford her, why should your trainer's ambitions for you rule your life? It's your life, not hers. I don't understand this "where you need to go". Where you...

    You haven't really said why Trainer 1 doesn't like her for you other than size. If KOC can ride a pony at a 4*, there's no reason why any rider, including WFP who does, can't make a 16 hander work.

    One thing you can do is put down roll roofing over the area and leave it for several weeks. Another thing that works is visqueen. http://www.discountvisqueen.com/clear-plastic-sheeting.html

    Actually, TBs have a very large number of muscle fibers that can either become short or long twitch depending a training. IIRC, this is the type 2b fiber.

    I went to the FEI and looked up Benjamin Winter's and Francisco Seabra's horses. Winter's was a Westfalen with less than 50% blood. The FEI had no breeding data on Seabra's horse, but I found a...

    They are. Very few of them are, but according to a recent scientific study in GB, both myopia and hyperopia are present in equines. Interesting, TB crosses tend to myopia (nearsighted) and WBs and...

    Actually I was remembering how obese Secretariat appeared at the end of his life. He was put down for laminitis. AFAIK, laminitis is a secondary condition.
  17. Smart Strike put down from laminitis at 23

    Perhaps stallion stations should rethink how they keep their studs.

    Isn't laminitis usually a side effect of something else like Cushings or overgrazing on sugary spring grass or obesity or a...

    I take it the vet has checked for all the normal things like plaques in the ear?

    Is there an equine version of what is called age related essential tremor in humans?
    Or Parkinsons?

    One classic that made a huge impression on me because of its hopelessness was Aldous Huxley's Antic Hay.

    We always read ourselves as we are into our understanding of literature.

    On gender differentials, there is a new study out for nursing, a predominately female occupation. Even in Nursing men make a great deal more than women. In most nursing, it's 6 or 7k per year; for...
