    She's banking on something showing up on the PPE. She has no intention of paying you what you are asking for the horse. You are correct when you suspect she wants you in a bad place to negotiate....

    The average shopper has a shockingly short attention span. You may not, but the average person shopping for a horse does. If a seller puts in a long stretch of unedited video, 90% of the...

    Tree swallow experts?

    Don't get me wrong Calamber - I LOVED his books. The Shield Mares being my favorite as well. However, I know that in person I would be able to stand him for about 10 minutes. ;-)

    The split occurred 19 year ago. Nineteen. Years. Ago.

    The ISR lost me when they decided to start approving stallions based on a 10 day test they put on. Then flushed it when they "adjusted"...

    She can try putting her on Thyroid-L no matter what the levels say - and she WILL lose weight. Be aware that it makes some horses nutz (jumping out of their skin, and close to unrideable). She can...

    I don't think the owner is on another planet at all. I think the owner knows exactly what a "what is your body worth to you?" rock solid fieldhunter sells for in NOVA to a weekend warrior.

    I would say that even if they were only moderately competitive on the show circuit (any show circuit) they will be worth more as a gelding, as a competition horse. Competition stallions do not pay...

    I hadn't heard that, but she's still shipping as of 2 weeks ago. It's the middle of the breeding season and he has contracts. Sandra is not the type to leave breeders swinging in the wind.
