He simply states that he sees nothing wrong with it, which he knows I don't agree with. 3) the facts and risks of breaking at so young an age have been thoroughly discussed, any one can read them, some of us are weary of repeating ourself. 4) jimmy is not going to admit to changing his methods but he does come across as friendly, having an open mind, and an original sense of humour, and does not come across as aggressive and arrogant. Need I say more?
when did I ever tell anyone they know nothing? I did. So you can stop with that. Just because I didnt agree with you doesnt mean I was saying you know nothing. I DID explain WHY we break as yearlings- because they start a racing career at 2. If I come across aggressive and arrogant, its because of the way people have said things to me. They werent very nice to begin with, so I feel no need to be so nice back. And also, I wanted to add I found your post that YOU said I posted that I hook up a horse all day long and leave them there, which I NEVER posted... jimmy did. So thanks for accusing me of something I don't do, and NEVER posted....
