I stink like horse and it smells fabulous

But I’m still going to take a shower as soon as I’m done writing this. In spite of the St Louis heat I managed to live a nearly perfect day today. Horses in the morning, horses in the evening, and the heat of the day in between in an air conditioned Starbucks with internet and…

The Future of the Morgan

So the other day I was wondering about the next generation of the Morgan breed and how the breed will progress and evolve, and I started wondering who will be the “in” trainers, what stallion will be the trend, and what horses will look like, in say, 20 or 30 years from now. How do…

It’s only about a minute long but is a nice little snapshot of the show. Unfortunately…

Big Things in Store for Penn-Ohio

When I was at the WNY show I heard rumors of big things happening at Penn-Ohio this year. Since the Mid-Atlantic show is not happening this year it sounds like P-O will be attracting a lot more entries and supposedly some big trainers.
