    Lol, very true, especially as, let's be honest, you do not NEED a $4000 saddle to compete. I suspect my elderly PDN will outlast many more expensive saddles. Nor do I desperately NEED a $3700 Latin...

    My Corgis wouldn't even WALK three miles. (I know. We've done it. Puff actually gains speed the farther we go, but even the younger Corgi pooped out and played Corgi sprawl and wouldn't move.) ...

    Not much comparison....Tonalist's beaten almost every good 3yo so far, SB's beaten Candy Boy. As far as older goes I think it's a wash (Dude doesn't count, he was toast before the race.) The...

    I'm only familiar with TBs. Papers don't prove ownership there, just that the horse is registered. I'd have to have a bill of sale (and I don't, actually, just the cancelled check) to "prove"...

    I'm batting 50-50 with Uship (one no-show ripoff, one excellent last-minute haul replacing the no-show who even blanketed Lucky for the ride). A lot of people use it because in some places, it's...

    Why would you need to register her at all? If you plan to show but the organizers don't care, there's no reason to register her unless you want to breed sale babies or sell her to a breeder.

    Puff wears one here because he walks much, much faster than the Corgis and that way he can get ahead without actually being off-leash. It's "inherited" from my parents' dog, Molly, who liked it...

    My brother works at an airport (he's noise abatement, which mostly means fielding calls from wealthy suburbanites who missed that their $600,000 was $150k cheaper than one might think because of the...

    If they develop it I hope they put in decent security or really locked-up condos as it's just a 'meh' area and not one the real estate agency I worked for rented in (not high-value enough, especially...

    At this rate, Shared Belief will go off at even money. (I'm not impressed with him yet.) But don't count Chrome out as he came off 100+ days and did better racing often, Wicked Strong's not a...

    I'd probably be happy and think it was a miracle. But then I wouldn't put a horse down for an insurance payout because it couldn't be ridden, only if it was injured or ill in a catastrophic way (ie,...

    Wow. He's nicely, bred, too, and a looker. Glad I'm not in the market and 1000 miles away....my only concern with this particular horse would be why the year off in 2013?
