    This is not the seller's problem to fix, and 1.5 hours is not that big a distance in horse shopping where it might justify special considerations.

    To turn my post around, then:

    Enough success with amateurs buying/bringing up the young horses to offset my personal experience, which is that the odds are against it working.

    Probably a good idea, but not for the reason you think it is.

    Recent investigations have (again) shown that human supplements tend to not contain the ingredients they say they do, or at the very...

    The sire will pass on a chestnut gene regardless.

    The dams all have one chestnut and one black based gene. Whichever one each dam passes on will determine the color of the foal.

    Yeah, but you didn't start by talking about movement. You started by dismissing all off breeds as non-competitive, as if every off breed horse is an average mover and every warmblood is an 8+ coming...

    You can do a running braid with a longer mane. If it's too tight along the crest, it will restrict the horse's ability to stretch, so play with it--there are plenty of instructions out there on ways...

    For schooling shows:

    I make sure the mane is tidy and the bridle path is trimmed. Goat hairs along the jowl are trimmed.

    I bought Fin in late 2013, but we didn't really do anything with him until 2014, so he sort of counts.

    He's a June 2010 half Arab (sire is Saddlebred x DHH). I was window shopping when I saw his...

    Yes.

    Don't go in to details. Just thank her, say the mare's not quite what you're looking for, and let it go.

    I had to memorize chunks of the Aeneid. In Latin.

    But Catullus 101 is probably my all time favorite poem.

    Although I also memorized some of his raunchy poems... and they are definitely more fun.

    I'd buy an island.

    And then a fighter jet to protect it.

    And then I'd be one of those "broke in five years" stories.
