    I'm completely unfamiliar with this phenomenon.

    You have now given me a serious fright and I probably will have terrible nightmares and apocalyptic visions of the above for the rest of my life. ...

    Maybe I should try this?

    As I've said before -- more than once -- I have never blanketed a foal. Mine are usually 3 or 4 YO and in work when they get their first blanket and spend any time at all...

    There is no indication anywhere on the Rolex website that Nike is a sponsor of Rolex.

    This is the sponsors page.

    Nike is not among the many names there.

    Anyone can buy Nike-branded,...

    I looked on the website to find out more about this Nike-Rolex collaboration but there's nothing there. It looks like the Rolex 3DE is selling Nike-branded apparel; it's not clear if this is a...

    It's one of many perfectly valid reasons, depending on your criteria for historical fiction.

    Oh, but you forgot the drugs cheat Marion Jones and the murderer Oscar Pistorius.

    Tiger Woods and Kobe Bryant don't bother me as much as the others. So they weren't the best husbands. I would...

    People on this BB are just the best. :)

    Someone has offered to ship me a hand-me-down foal blanket! My will to live is back to full strength. :D

    Foal is due on Tuesday, although the mare's...

    I disagree with you about looks. SS may have some other/TB blood but he has many AT attributes and passes them on to his offspring. My Zizi is evidence of that. Ears, head, coat, legs, neck are all...

    Yes!

    This one will be a half-sibling (same dad) to this lovely, um, pony and also a half-sibling to my gorgeous now-2YO Misty (same mum, Misty is by the Holsteiner stallion Chairman who was mostly...

    This foal is half-TB, half-Akhal Teke. I've had another foal by the same Teke stallion, out of a different TB mare, and she was the tiniest foal I've ever seen. About the size of a pygmy goat. :) ...

    As I said, I've never needed to buy one before. My foals have all been born in temperate-to-warm climates, including the last one in Southern Pines, but current temps there are stubbornly cold.
    ...
  12. Foal blanket help urgently needed -- I'm losing the will to live!

    My '15 foal is imminent and the weather is not cooperating. Southern Pines is hovering at freezing or below.

    I've never bought a foal blanket before but I think I should have one at the ready. ...

    Well, why not?

    A course of small jumps (BN/N are small) is not too much to ask of some 3/4YOs.

    Some 3-going-on-4 horses have already wrapped up their first career on the track. I'd think a...

    Well done!

    But what I really want to know is if the Tooth Fairy left some $ for him.

    From Pippa Cuckson's post:



    Then let him be as 'difficult' as he pleases. I'd say the sport could use a few more like him.

    An NGB or NSO is already a hostage to its source(s) of funding. There are numerous NSOs that run on fumes and volunteers -- no budget, no paid staff, maybe a website administrated by an umbrella...

    How is it that we can love our sport yet, at the same time, have to accept that these accidents happen?

    The accidents never become more acceptable, nor do they stop happening altogether.

    All fine, as it's simply your opinion. 'Prima donna' and 'other bad behavior' are subjective terms.

    The problem comes when you try to encode that into legal language or make other attempts to...

    This is a game of chicken.

    However, only one side stands to really lose big here: ENZ.

    It seems like a couple of posters think that I've implied that American riders don't want to work hard. I never said that, and I don't feel that way.
