    All I have to say is BRAVO to the writer, Leslie Kagen.

    Very well done. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Thanks!

    just FYI, erin or whoever's administering the site, I went to check the letters section from the COTH home page, and the link on the side goes to the site map, not the letters page...

    I can scan it in if folks wish - I am sure (or hope) that wouldn't be against COTH rules. It is a marvelous letter, and her list probably should be etched into wood and hung in every barn.

    would be great, 2Dogs!

    Unfortunately, living out here in California, I will not be getting the August 30th issue until approximately 9/13. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    I, too, enjoyed that letter and have been waiting for someone to bring it up. However, I don't think this was the recognition Denny Emerson had in mind in the column to which she replied.

    I especially liked "helpful hint #7."

    Though I am more of a pleasure rider type (can only afford the occasional lesson, sorry) I have seen situations such as those she very eloquently describes and all I could think of at the time was, "Why doesn't someone DO something about this?"

    It's about time someone pointed out that the emperor indeed has no clothes. Let's just see if the masses will listen.

    The website is NOT me! I have my hands full just managing you people. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    If you run into problems, broken links, outdated pages, etc. on the main COTH site, please email Melinda at webmaster@chronofhorse.com. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    How do we write a letter of thanks to this woman? I tried to call her on the phone but couldn't find a listing to personally thank her. This was so on point I was yelling YES, YES, YES when I read it.

    And as far as selling horses - well we NEVER sell a horse to anyone without a contract and it is directly with the BUYER - no one else. If someone is being paid a commission relative to the sale - it's stated in the sale and we issue a 1099 to them - so to get their money they have to provide us with a Tax ID #!!!

    If I have to pay taxes on my horses business then the commissions are an expense and the trainers/agents/etc. can pay taxes on their income.

    THANK YOU LESLEY KAGEN!!!!!
