Do you have children? LOL They "compete" 24/7 at a level of stress and
energy that would exhaust any adult. :o)
yes, I have two children ages 15 and 17 and I probably don't WANT to know what they're up to 24/7 these days ;) I do know that the thought of them doing 100 miles at the age of 5 is nauseating and the only way they would have done it was to satisfy my own ego. I do believe that Cliffy Lewis might just be a child prodigy and none the worse for wear. However, what about the kid who's parents decide that since Cliffy could do it their little "Mikey" could do it? I think AERC needs to do for these kids what it did for the horses since the beginning. Stupid not to.
