ML has the ride on the horse, point blank. Nobody else in the barn wants to ride him because he falls down.
BINGO! To Dead Lame and DMK.
There has been zero information released about the condition of the horses from a group that is now the beneficiary of a significant chunk of money. It seems like the...
Blingy foals and retired show mares are much more worthy of charity :P
Do people think these horses are getting seized? I'd be shocked if it happened.
Soooo, when the very first viable,...
Yes, you've stated that before.
Same old big-headed ass, living in the land where his opinion matters. Yawn.
Though, I hardly recognized the writing, what with Stamm not being mentioned even once.
Bayhawk, attacking the credentials of someone does what, exactly, make you look more knowledgeable?
(psssst, it sort of makes you look like an ass)
Additionally, you WERE...
Would you opinion change if you got confirmation that the rumors of him sleeping with young, hopeful team members during his tenure was true?
They don't? Can you sight your sources?
So, next time you are out "schooling" a student on Cross Country, you'd be ok with someone walking up and telling them about their better quality, more convenient, cheaper training. Riiiight.
Wait, so what NV gets to do is pick and choose for totally sound/marketable horses and pass the "dregs" off to other groups who don't have the luxury of any funding whatsoever from this program? ...
Thank god we have someone around to tell us what we should not be talking about.
not so hard to figure out who the screamer is.
I, too, would love to know who the 4H "leader" is.
same way we'd find out that you needed a dog collar last week. ;)
It's become enough of a boom to business that it seems there are "rescue" groups working with kill buyers to bring horses BACK from Canada to sell to people as "going to slaughter!"
We all know the...
a butcher? can you provide examples?
You trained with him long term - why not give him a call? I can give you his # if you've misplaced it.
Thanks for the education--I'd spoken to some people at the sale who were not all that pleased--perhaps it was more selling the 20 year old mare instead of the baby. Regardless, thanks for the...
Nowhere other than the racing world is this "ok". I think its gross. Gotta squeeze every last dollar!
What should they do? Oh, I don't know, maybe not send a 20 year old mare to foal out at...
Who knew? apparently common practice. I'll take out my pot-stirring comments. Thanks for the education, really!
Generation Whiner at it's finest again.
GET A PPE!!! How many stories do we need to read before people get it through their skulls? "Sound" is subjective.
Did you ask "can it breathe?"...
wow. will you [people] take it elsewhere and let this thread live without your constant bickering?
Speaking of facts, and "facts," according to her website, Christan was Shortlisted in 2000. Umm, really??
Agreed, completely. My question was more hypothetical though, meaning once you go past training you increase the risk of rotational falls rather exponentially--and if this owner/rider is intent on...
As always I have to applaud your chin-uppedness.
But I cannot wrap my brain around the fact that you can see these pictures--any pictures over the last 4 years and think that the horse has any...
Intermediate doesn't seem like the most efficient or safe place to learn to ride.
