And he did it all on plain hay, a little grain, and no electrolytes...

Hello Heidi,

Fantastic horse and pretty close up to one of my favorite sires,
WitezII....one thing, though...in some of the
photos in the older book, "Endurance and Competitive Trail Riding"by
Wentworth Tellington and Linda Tellington-Jones, 1979, he looks pretty lean.
Was that back in the era when endurance horses were thought
they should look like greyhounds when fit?  Maybe before studies showed that
horses with higher body condition scores or more cover did a bit
better.....there is also a photo of Cougar Rock (the horse); was quite
ribby.

Then again, maybe thats why the horse did so very well.....?!
Karen
