UPDATE... YES!!! UPDATE WITH CONFO PICS OF YOUR STALLION!!!
He seems like just the boy to improve upon my 3-legged, 14 hh A/O mare. And sabino to boot!!! Can you collect him today, and get the critters to me by Fed Ex... no, wait... DHL... no, wait... can I come pick it up, and fly it home myself? Or maybe I can throw my little mare in the trailer, and head on down to Texas. She's always in heat, so timing shouldn't be a problem. But, um... she's had some trailering issues (she lost that fourth leg in a minor trailer loading incident; no big deal... she just has a few minor balance issues, nothing 30 days of training can't fix). But if she lies down all the way, she should be okay. Right? Live cover would be best, cause she's the horny type, and I've always wanted her to "get some."

Helen- At least if you ever take a clinic with GM and he asks how many beats are in each gait, you will have it easy.
And you can be assured that your horse will ALWAYS be reaching under herself with her hind leg...or she will fall down.

oh my god! when i started to read it, i was like 'god, i HATE kids that type like this..and jeez, why do they have to lie about thier horses...' and then about a sentence into it, i got it...and couldn't stop laughing! brilliant! woohoo!
You know, I've had horrible heartburn all day...and now it's a whole lot worse!
Seriously, jetsmom, I know how to fix your problem with the judge. All you need is a little bling!--on your stirrups, your spurs, your GPA, your browband. Hell, why stop there? How about the bell boots, the open fronts (with or without sheepskin), the matching saddlepad, on the red (green? yellow?) ribbon in his tail...I've got it. Just shellack the beast with chrome Rustoleum to make him stand out and hide those pesky manure stains as an added bonus. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif
Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.
Really now, folks. The poor lady comes crying and in a panic and all you can do is laugh at her. I'm ashamed.
Jetsmom, you keep up with your BNT. A little poling never hurt, and the draw reins will get him in a frame. Make sure your horse feels that twisted wire if he runs out, and you might consider tacks in the cavesson. Make sure to add plenty of sweet feed - maybe a gallon or two, but more if he still seems hungry after that. Not too much hay, now. You don't want a hay belly. Judges hate that.
There is an extra warmblood where I board. He's chestnut, only five and working Prix St Georges. His owner wants a Gypsy Vanner (I'll see if a sabino would be OK) so perhaps you can trade.
Don't tell me about what you can't do. That's boring. Show me what you can do. - Mom
