Re: APOLOGY - long
I know there are good people like you and others who are knowledgeable
enough and concerned enough to take good care of their horses. My
concern is in the area of the inexperienced who try this or that
supplement or only have time to exercise their horses on weekends due to
work, etc (like me now) but yet try to do fast 50's or even 100's. Most
of the time I give people the benefit of the doubt and assume if they
make mistakes, it is out of ignorance (although sometimes that ugly head
of fierce competition rears up and shows it's face). I believe Linda's
post was simply to try to force more safeguards which will not interfere
with you more seasoned veterans and will help stop the ignorant from
making mistakes at their horse's expense. That's all.

buyers, for the most part, have shown good judgment with them--- those
other few have broken my heart as the babies started off with so much
kindness and willingness to please)
