I can, also, add that there is no code of silence here on ridecamp.  If this 
rumor turns out to be true, I expect it will take over discussions for at 
least a week, like it did when Dancer died.  That protest discussion in 
Endurance News last month was a tough read.

This is one place where no secrets are hidden under the bed or in the closet. 
 Dirty laundry is aired out it the open.  And I'm glad that we're waiting for 
some substantiation to this sad occurrence, if it did happen.  It's the one 
part of endurance that has to be our biggest fear and our most important 
concern.  The horse.

Howard (I think a sad tale is gonna come with this one)
