    Well, only to address the last issue...if it cost me say $75/year to repair a $300 blanket, and the repairs made it perfectly usable, I'd do that until the end of time or it got so freaking patched...

    Not to hijack, but SportArab's book was excellent, I highly recommend it. And now I guess I'll have to find this book about Noor...racehorse biographies are a particular weakness of mine ;) so thanks...

    I really appreciate this comment. I spent half my life with horses on an Angus farm, and really no one thing worked. I only learned of fly predators after I was in the Army, but it stands to reason...

    Ha, Havre and Favre (I'm a Packers fan) Of course you know the local pronunciation!

    I thought he was sold after the Preakness with a proviso that he could race until the end of the year, although I'm sure the new "owner" (majority, not sole) will have a say in his starts for the...

    Misspelled names?

    Pretty much every time I saw American Pharoah written in the last year the misspelling sort of grated on my inner Grammar Nazi but also reminded me of Deputed Testamony, the last (?) Maryland-bred...

    American Pharoah. Grr, the misspelling! Reminds me, though, of Deputed Testamony, still I *think the last MD bred to win a Triple Crown race.

    Your OP doesn't say where you found him; do you have his papers/know his breeding? And does 14hh-ish mean over or under the POA 56"(14hh flat) height limit? I grew up with POAs and still have many...

    I think TB racehorses are difficult to include if I understand the question, not because they don't belong but because of how difficult (I think) it is to learn their average. If the question is (how...

    Not as time-consuming or expensive as you think. At POA shows, every pony under 6 must be measured, and at major events it's not that massive of an undertaking. Assume that 2 measuring stewards are...

    Any advice about syncope in cats?

    Our boy had the third episode that we've seen today. He goes to the cardiologist Friday and hopefully we will know more then. It's pretty scary, though. He has a significant heart murmur on both...

    Maybe I'm wrong BGH, but he attacks dogs. Seriously. He goes on the offensive. I'm thinking that he won't be so threatened/will learn to get a long with a puppy.

    I wish I could rescue a boxer puppy

    I want a boxer, but our cat is so aggressive it will have to be a puppy. Rescuing a grown dog won't work. Suggestions? Any one?

    No, please understand. The point is to not use a word that refers to a specific group of people to insult another person. I'm hoping I can explain this, don't call a jackass a moron. Don't call an...

    Lovely penmanship takes practice and discipline, just like riding. I made a conscious effort at 12/13 and it worked. I can't maintain it, though :) I fall into print when I'm writing quickly. When I...
