Dinah/Vermont: I couldn't agree more with you re any #s on rumps! I
looked at my horse's numbered rump in the trailer Sunday returning from a
ride and thought, how awful the 18 looked, just like the
horses at the killer sales. It made me feel ill.

> practitioners and students and another for the general horse person. =
> There is an "extended" period for access, without charge. Many of the =
> medical/sport/nutrition issues are covered periodically and you can ask =
> questions of the top experts in the World. In the interest of persuing =
> "facts vs. anecdotes", this may be of help to everyone. Best regards, =
