    I sold mine in January. He's got a fabulous new home with a young rider who adores him. Hopefully we'll see him at events in the future. :)

    Aside from those already mentioned:
    Starbucks (I can store my card here so if I forget it, I've got it with me anyhow!)
    GasBuddy (to tell me where the nearest gas station is, with prices)...

    You might check out the MHIB's directory of licensed stables. It doesn't have every licensed stable, but owners/managers were asked about their facilities, so that info is in there: ...

    Update: Heard back from CSU and I was right... all their paper records were destroyed in the 2011 fire and their electronic records go back to 2006 (when they switched to a new system). No trace of...

    I assume that you mean you live right next door to Capote's Promise? Because Capote himself died in 2007... Capote's Promise is super sweet as I recall from my time at CSU! Atypical - how old is...

    If you wait a few years, you could breed to Tamarillo's clone, Tomatillo ;)

    Mystic Replica is very nice. We bred Salute The Truth's dam to him one year and got a gorgeous filly that was truly spectacular once we got her started. Unfortunately, she had a pasture accident...

    I bred my mare to Capote's Promise in 2001. She had a very nice filly that was brave to the max cross country and was a very nice mover. We competed her through one Training level event and then...

    Thanks for mentioning Salute The Truth! There are some conformation photos of him available on our Facebook page (here's a direct link to the album - you don't have to be a FB member to view them): ...

    Yes! I had a root canal + crown when I was about 24. Fast forward 5 years and I got an abscess in that tooth - had to have the root canal re-done and a new crown put on. Knock on wood, this one...

    I have two mares that I have bred to different sires.

    Mare #1 is a Trakehner/Morgan cross by Pregelstrand. She is about 15.1 hands. She had a foal by a 16.2-ish Hanoverian stallion (that wasn't...

    Another thing to keep in mind is that owners are not *required* to register their horses with USEF until they get to a certain level of competition. Last year, STT missed out on a lot of points...

    I sooooo know where you're coming from. My mom gave me a list with just ONE thing on it ... new slippers. She doesn't need anything that I know of. I'll probably come up with something else more...

    I don't wear it often, but I mostly use Amarige by Givenchy, sometimes Chanel Cristalle or Burberry Weekend. Unfortunately, just about 2 weeks ago, a bottle of one who's name I can't remember broke...

    We had inquiries last year about shipping to Canada but discovered that it would be extremely time-consuming as the USDA no longer had a vet in Maryland. We'd have to drive down to Richmond and had...

    It's an improvement over last year! We found that there were some of Salute The Truth's offspring registered with USEF that had NO sire/dam information. We were told by USEF then that the owner of...

    I second/third/whatever the suggestion to call Liz at Silverwood. She is VERY meticulous with her record-keeping - all the semen shipments are catalogued along with the mare's name, etc., so I'm sure...

    Whether it is muscle or fat, if there is a backbone visible, the tissue to surround it has to come from somewhere...which means it needs more food. Preferably, you want the tissue to be muscle, which...

    Absolutely, positively true. If the horse is lacking a topline, they can be both unfit AND need groceries (protein). The muscle mass that builds the topline has to come from somewhere and it's not...

    I think you got that backwards....they should be felt but not seen ;)
    I prefer them to not be seen, but also to not have too much extra meat on them - e.g. no valley on the topline or extra fat...
