To  Bonifield/Poulson

Apologies for taking so long to get back to you I have been away also to
read that Endurance bloodlines are "off the topic "
That is like saying the engine of Mclarec/Mercedes has nothing do do with
Grand Prix racing!!!!!!!! What has weigh stations got to do with endurance ?
As a matter of fact it is closely related just like bloodlines.!

Anyway I will heed all gestures and send any answers on Bloodlines to
individual e-mail addresses

In reply to you letter I dont think there is anything wrong with striving to
be perfect . We all have a goal in life where as other people are happy with
the run of the mill . I am very open minded and enjoy constructive criticism
in any way . I published the Ian Thompson letter because it was very
interesting and was also substanciated by Pictures (Which weren`t sucked out
of his thumb).

I am interseted in the history of any line and have got a crabbet mare and
stallion myself . I must look up their lines to see how pure they are ( ie
Crabbett). The stallion did his first season this year and i have high hopes
for him .

I do not like to elaborate on subject`s which I am not completely familiar
with and therefore cannot answer any questions on (the Otts and Co.)
