    Hahahahaha. Now you see what Florida went through a few years ago. Although, I must say that he is a pussycat compared to our present governor.

    From experience, I would say that the only "family" the horse really misses is whoever dishes out the feed and cookies and whether or not they are on time.

    But didn't he also say that dressage is not the horse's REAL job in all of this--and that no one should expect the same sort of performance that he gets from his own horses? The real job of the...

    Now that's what I would call a nice acceptable weight, Angela.

    There are also a lot of photos by people on the forum showing older horses that look a bit too fat to my eye. Isn't that equally as bad as too thin? I think there is a thin line somewhere between...

    I'm impressed by how good he looks from the recent photos. Am I the only one who wishes that they would let him stay a bit longer and see what develops? It looks like racehorse paradise over there...

    To paraphrase him a bit, I liked where he said that dressage really wasn't the horse's main job, that their real job was the cross country phase, and so, of course, they didn't perform like dressage...

    I'm very sorry about the horses, and hope that they are able to raise enough money to get them out and safe.

    BTW, I was under the impression that the Mexican SHs had been more or less closed...

    But you still have to be able to complete the cross country phase consistently in order to be competitive.

    If I am remembering correctly, when Marilyn Little was just starting out (not that long ago, LOL) and she bought a couple of horses in Europe, weren't there some videos of her training at Jung's...

    What happened to giving a dictionary? Or, since he's special, maybe go big time with a dictionary and a thesaurus. Toss in a package of note cards too if you're feeling especially generous.

    From my point of view, you can have the world's best dressage test and/or show jumping test, but it doesn't do you any good if you can't get through cross country. The other two elements can...

    I have far more respect for someone who makes up their own horses more or less by themselves than the ones who simply go out and buy a made horse. Congrats to Colleen and both your horses.

    I'll admit to being very shocked and saddened by this episode. However, it just occurred to me--while it makes for greater drama to show all the monitors flat-lining at the end, since Derek and...

    I've been enjoying the commercials and wondered when someone would bring them up. The horse is a definite improvement on the horses in most commercials--and they are clever.

    I see that the original post is almost 2 years old. Did the OP continue on with her plans?

    From the short video he looks great, having a nice quiet trot around the track. I think this will be a very good experience for him, and the scenery is very, very nice. Have no idea what a rubbing...

    I am jealous/furious that I didn't think of the salt on a rope! Best invention to come down the road in a long time. My horse likes the pink stuff too, although at the moment he's not on a salt...

    I have a pair that have developed a few pin holes in the crotch area. I am thinking of digging around and finding an old discard pair of breeches and taking the present pair to a seamstress and...

    Of course, if the owners win and can get the horses back, they will probably be charged with $$$$$ for board over those months--and I don't believe that Days End is cheap.
