So cool. Did not realize that Nina was so much bigger than Zizi. Zizi seems to have gotten around any self-esteem issues though ;).
What I found really exciting was that there were other teams that finished and some other countries with competitive individuals. I cannot remember when the US and Canada have not been the obvious...
I would either take him to a top University or Vet known for lameness eval or throw him out for a year. Horses adjust to being left alone, and it give their bodies a chance to heal. I feel for you...
PM me if you are interested, we are in MA and my daughter has an OLD cosmetically damaged, but structurally good, wide Stubben in a wide tree that might work and she might part with very cheaply.
Agree with others, not in the contract, but a request. I offered to keep in touch with my horse's former owners. Never heard from them. Last year I saw one on FB, and I friended her and posted...
I haven't competed for a few years now, but I used to get really excited getting a Hershey's miniature in my packet. I guess I come cheap.
I have given up on Ebay as a seller. I think that most of the buyers there are nuts these days (except for me ;) ). I have good luck with Middleburg Tack.
Cope with Terry. Terry was the trainer's wife. Not very nice. His daddy was Copelan.
I think that he is really nice, but his price tag ain't cheap.
I found my Ainsley Chester on Ebay for $350. Admittedly, they misspelled Ainsley, but I love my saddle.
Would make an offer. Patched and bad condition is not easily resold.
Ask the buyer to send you a sample of what they want.

Just adding, in the old days, before we had all the interventions, giving horses a year off to heal was standard practice.
Hopefully Sweetbriar will survive, but my daughter had a great experience at Smith. Riding is not quite at the level of Sweetbriar, but the Engineering Dept is great, the school community is great,...
They are all really good riders. Good thing it wasn't as long as the pentathalon that you posted. I am going to blame having a lousy cold for being sucked into watching that.
So happy to see Colleen on the list. SubK summarized the situation nicely ;).
This was the article. A heart murmur was detected.
That is true, but if you read Scubed's blog over the past few years, you would see that she had a known condition.
I can only hope that she is eventually found. A friend of mine disappeared in NYC on New Year's Eve 1984. Despite hundreds of us searching the City, no trace of him has ever been found. That is...
What a lovely idea. Animals do not know that they are going to die, but they do sense our fear and sadness. What a great final gift to give.
Completely understand. What a terrible situation.
This may sound like a bizarre suggestion, but if she is an orphan and very special, have you considered doing an embryo transplant or freezing her eggs?
I am so sorry. That is so difficult, especially in such a young and promising horse. Major hugs coming to you from MA.
AnnikaK, I cannot see the pic :(. Is it public? Really curious to see pics of the little foal. I remember him lying in the hospital with your son. Hope your son is doing well too.
