    before I even opened the thread, I thought, "this sounds EXACTLY like the old QH trick of slathering them in mayo and putting a sheet on" (circa late 70's/early 80's).

    I still have my audible book version read by Douglas Adams. I think I need to listen to it again.

    Only to the extent the average WB dressage prospect has the same neck/shoulder conformation as the average reining/cutting prospect. Which it most likely does not, if it was selected with purpose...

    yeah, the "office" is really useful, and if you can't make that work, maybe using a room that isn't your relaxing area (a friend of mine uses her dining room - least used room in the house).

    Honestly, if starting a horse at two versus 3/4 was such a reliable predictor of soundness, why would we have lame dressage, event and h/j horses? It is just not as simple as two year olds in work =...

    Let's just say that a racing heart does not actually physically exhaust a mammal for a period immediately after the event. It strains credulity, but let's just put a pin in that thought and come back...

    a lot of people live long lives on fast food, but I think we have gained enough knowledge to realize there are better ways to eat. Cats are obligate carnivores and while most may do OK on the fast...
