    And I don't think his "ego" can hold a candle to Sjef's, but that is another story...

    But really, you probably should direct your anger toward the Visser's. After all, they are the ones who sold Totilas.
    Assume much? No hate, no venom, no anger. Just hilarity at someone who is either following the advice of the world's worst publicist, or who has decided himself to give a shining example of how not to promote a brand.

    This quote is from Totilas's former owner:

    So, as mentioned earlier - the horse does sometimes get a bit stallion-y. Gal had learned to manage it. Rath has a tougher job - Totilas is now older, stronger, and is doing a lot more breeding than he did previously. He is more confirmed in his own mind that he is a breeding stallion. Ask any stallion which job he likes best...
    As Gal was a student of Anky's I'm sure Sjef knows how he (Gal) learned to manage it. Good or bad. Finesse or......? As the young one say "just saying". Carry on.

    I think the training of Totilas was a Team Gal/Werner/Minderhoud effort and not so much Van Grunsven and CO.
