LIU, I'm sure she really is a lovely person. I bought her newest tape - I think it's called "Her Winning Formula" or something like that. It is very good, and Sjeff and Anky come across as very down-to-earth nice people. There are a lot of unkind things said on the Internet about their deep training technique, and some of us like to spoof it. This is definitely NOT a criticism of her, but a good hard poke at her critics. Just the term "Spanky Anky" is hysterical because she is actually so quiet and gentle with her horses. Anyway, I can't in my wildest dreams imagine Anky wasting her time reading internet BBs. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

she said in one interview that she can't even stand having someone else clip the horse's whiskers as grooms are too rough, and she does all that stuff herself. i don't think a lot of the top european professionals do things like that. she's a very hard working and devoted woman.
