    This again....not worth the gamble of the high stud fee (and still unproven sire) and also not worth the gamble of a good jumping mare. I'd look for a different sire.

    no difference in price but the 15.3 hand horse may take longer to sell.


    ETA: And yes...I've sold a 15.3 hand horse before....and she was a Chestnut TB mare to boot. Never ran an ad. She was...

    I thought ASTM DOES have issus with fixed brims. That is why even the hats like COs that do have brims have short ones that do break away in an impact.

    I've had a brim help save my face with a...

    I think the difference is this is an ad for a farm with MULTIPLE quality stallions. All they need to do is to get me to their website. Once there....I'm more likely to click on the videos and look...

    I disagree. If you talk to currently competing 4* riders they will all say they want more TB horses. Yes...for a few years, several tried the fancy WB...but in the end, they have found them to...

    Since serious breeders are NOT going to make a decision based on an ad.....the one picture in an ad does NOT need to present a stallion and highlight his qualities. It just needs to catch our...

    It could also be that you didn't put them in tight enough. I've never had those rubber plugs stay in.

    For what is is worth....I'm not interested in the stallion in the picture BUT since the ad caught my attention, I looked at the pictures to the right of their OTHER stallions and some of them...

    Eh. I don't mind her JC name. I've had MUCH worse. My current boy was "Blame it on Bush". Just couldn't keep that and I show him under his barn name. (And I've had s few with even worse ones). ...

    And you have ignored those of us that DID say the ad was effective. In a SEA of ads all showing the SAME damn things, this ad got me to stop and notice. So the hook of the funny headline and rider...

    I like it....made me laugh....and honestly...it's not "sexual" at all. Just funny.


    Ads do not really make breeding decisions for most mare owners....what they do is just get your attention so...

    They come back. I have one who as been on GG since June. A tube a day for 3 months and then we backed down slowly so that he is now on 1/4 daily until we have grass in the fields.

    I could not...

    lol....I'm over 40...and got up at 4:30am to ride two horses before work yesterday...and often get up at 3am to go to competitions. I restarted and started several young horses since turning 40 ...

    probably nothing to do with being an orphan...just his personality. I have one rising 3 year old who as a yearling jumped the fence and left his friends and us to go exploring. He got out of the...

    Realized I never responded....livestock on the grounds does not bother me...as long as there is still good footing. That is the one issue running xc through pastures that are used for livestock and...

    I have a mare that had a bit of a stopping issue depending on the rider and only on xc. For me, it was only an issue at Prelim Trakenheurs. And she got over it. But what was interesting was she...

    Love Under Armour products.....those I would buy (and already buy their stuff). MUCH better quality than Nike. Nike hasn't had top gear for me in anything in a long time. Certainly not the best...

    Another person to speak with is Denis Glaccum. He has built up several facilities over the years.

    Personally....there is always room for more if you are in the right area. If you are close to a...

    Don't think of it like you are shutting him down... But that you are teaching him not to leave the stride out. You say he is smart, so you need to make sure he doesn't learn bad things too. If...

    Really it isn't uncommon at the upper levels. I can think of several 3 and 4* horses in them.

    no it is more of an issue of his conformation than just the former fracture. He seems best in the heart bars.

    I've done it MANY times up to Intermediate. Current boy fractured his coffin bone last year....we've decided to keep him in them all the time. I'm hoping to do a 1* with him this year. Yup...they...

    I do recommend that if you take time off to do it AFTER you get your 4 year undergrad degree. I took a my break to focus on horses after I got my BA and before law school. I know others who took...

    This is my experience as well. With my TBs....I might start with a couple of fitness days before their first Prelim....but 3x5 canters is what we did before long format CCI1*.
