    Also - honestly you let this go on too long.. Two weeks of ignoring you? Not acceptable in the slightest and should have been dealt with the first time you were left out of a meeting.

    15.3 isn't really that small. The problem with selling a 15.3 hand horse is that when many people see 15.3 on an ad they expect to see a horse that is really 15/15.1.
