    Default Valegro

    I read that he suffers from head shaking syndrome. Does anyone know any more about that or how it is managed? I would imagine that would have an effect on his sale.

    See, I was raised by wolves and am really behind the 8-ball on diplomatic issue resolution.

    Since I have a horse with the same syndrome I have to say that I have a lot of respect for how well they have managed this with a nose net.

    Yes, I would think this would affect his ultimate sales price quite a bit, since sometimes the nose net becomes not quite so effective.

    It's a really crappy thing for a horse to have, and I have the utmost respect for their going forward with this extremely talented horse despite this problem.

    I wouldn't count on his selling for a bargain price. Has anyone ever witnessed signs of his head shaking in competition?
