    Thanks so much for the personal experiences - just hearing reminders that there are so many means to an end (and that not everything will wrong everytime) is so helpful.
  2. If you could tell a new breeder anything... (And some questions)

    If you could tell a first-time breeder anything, what would it be?

    I've never found a lightweight navajo pad, but have always liked the pattern and weight of polo pads. I'd be interested in knowing if...

    That technique though! I could certainly see the attraction in using him as a hunter stallion - based solely on his short video and pedigree (depending, of course, on the mare and a variety of other...

    I have played with a lot of "backyard" level horses, so my experiences should be taken with a grain of salt. I had one horse though - not wonderfully built, not wonderfully athletic - that was fit,...

    I am by no means an expert, but having started a few of my own - ground person! If you don't have an extremely skilled ground person, consider just riding them on the lunge line (that way you can...

    Oops - one more question for you Bobby's fans. Any thoughts on colors? Generally, I would opt for havana, but it looks super dark in the pictures. The "light brown" or whatever they call it looks...

    I'm liking the positive thoughts on the Bobby's. Maybe I'll end up trying that route and at least see what shows up on my porch when I order it. ;)

    Work ethic - born or created?

    Just as the title says - I am wondering if you think there is such thing as a horse that was essentially born without a work ethic/willingness to please/what-have-you, or if you think that the desire...
