Ripper... I'm not going to even begin to go into all of the wrong that I see in weanlings like that. They disgust me, to say the least. That baby doesn't even look like a baby, and it's probably pumped up on steriods and oiled to boot. Looks like it's bordering being lame, too. Its got some crazy stuff going on with those legs even when walking in that short video.
Anyways, little shows like the ones Kayella is talking about don't require sweating and running and steriods and tiny pin-prick feet. Heck, half of the ones I've gone to recently- some people haven't even clipped their horses and still place. I have a feeling that she wants to do this for the fun and experience of it. No need to ruin her horse just to woin a few measly little ribbons.
Many people climb higher mountains.
That foal looks about like mine did and I never used steroids.
Steroids makes their necks thick.......not a good thing.
