    That's not how it reads to me. It sounds like Astrid is suing Sjef.

    I'm reading it as Astrid's counter-suit (using Sjeff)! Evidently, Anky does not talk like a sailor.

    ARGHH!

    Maybe it was Talk Like a Sailor Day.

    PS BTW, that' countersuit sounds pretty feeble. Since when are you not allowed to rant at journalists while pretending to be Long John Silver?

    ARRRRR!

    I'm collecting CotH names of those who appear to have nice horses and big farms. I'm going for the deep pockets as soon as they say one bad thing about me.

    Does anyone else love the beginning?

    According to Anky images of her horses can not be connected to the controversial rollkur training method. This is a system developed by Anky and her trainer and life partner Sjef Janssen in which the horse is bending its neck in an extreme way.


    Sooo, images of her horses can not be connected to the training system that the next sentence says she DEVELOPED.


    Okey dokey then.

    I wonder whose horses she wants us to believe she developed it on.

    meupatdoes, I believe the contradiction was the point of the juxtaposition of those two sentences. It is rather clever from an editorial perspective.
