Annd my computer cord died(how convenient huh?). I *really* don't like writing books from my phone. I have some book excerpts I will post tonight. I think Inga is from a similar background to me. Me, I am a person who was trained by those who follow more of the "old ways". When it comes down to it, a lot of these bad individuals just need to take a trip back to the 40s and 50s and learn a bit. A lot of people think they have to reinvent the wheel to be as good as Don or Merrill... What they really need to do is just pick up a dang book and call some of the old timers that are still kicking.
There are two books I am going to quote for you on shoeing and training. One was from the 40s, the other came out last year from a super awesome, super nice trainer who is very successful.
A good horse to look at with short feet it a freakishly cool SA Stallion named Tomcat.
Right now, our show horses are still let down for the winter and I am not home(had this bright idea to move closer to my job). When everything gets back swinging for the year, I will see what I can get for you. Posted via Mobile Device
