    I did read the whole article... days ago actually.

    I pretty much have things set up so I don't have to pack every time... stuff either lives in my trailer or in my show trunk.

    Good luck OP.... Goldens sure are cute! I bet those pups are just adorable. Just keep repeating that they aren't available. I like pretty much all dogs, but tend to end up with mutts... which seems...

    If it's a fainting goat you could just keep startling it every 10 -15 minutes and it'd pretty much be stiff and laying down the whole time you're there... :uhoh:

    I think people need to seriously re-evaluate the accuracy of horsemanship being one of the most important aspects of eventing. Accepting that there is a high risk your horse could die or suffer...
