Well, like you said above, I responded in kind.  I also stand by that

I've always tried new and innovative techniques, including feed and
feed supplements.  Some worked, some didn't, some hurt.  I've noticed
that you go to the personal attack and say "you're just afraid of
change" when someone doesn't just blindly accept your pronouncements.

Tom, you may have some expertise with Thourobreds on the flat track.
But in my considered opinion you don't know jack shit about feeding
endurance horses.

However, it is not my desire to carry on a flame war on Ridecamp.  So
I've said all on this that I feel I need to.
