"I really do not think that many horse people can afford this process, so the issue is a small one statistically in my opinion. Too many wonderful horses go to slaughter currently because they cannot be fed due to the effects of the economy or lack…"
"Your last sentence really sums it up nicely, Sharon. I really don't know enough about the longterm effects on the gene pool or the market. But it's a practice that seems to be gaining traction in the horse world at large, and I'm…"

"There is a very detailed article this month in Equine Journal. Let me quote from their definition of exactly what cloning means. "A cloned horse is not an exact replica of the donor horse, but is genetically about a 98% copy; a twin. The…"

Thank you so much for letting me know about the show in Denver. I had a blast and was able to learn a ton!! I found that the judge was an awsome and very nice man. I wished I could have chated with you a bit more. I could tell you were very busy. My youngest son is wanting to show our peruvian. If you hear of peruvian tack for cheap price let me know. We have alot of stuff to buy and a lot of training to do. But, I know it would be wonderful for him to get to do.
Thanks for letting me know about the show in Denver. Do you happen to know the cost to watch the show? I am on the western slope. So it would be a bit of a jog to get over the mountain. But, would love to try to get over there.
Our last volleyball game is the 21st, so after that, I should have a much more clear schedule for weekend riding. I did manage to ride Saturday and Sunday, as it was homecoming and no game on Saturday. I am working to get miles and training on both Vista and Bree, my TWH mare. Both are 4 and still young. Vista got a lot more experience this past year as Bree was on maternity leave. But I have to have both ready for Expo in March, so I have a lot of work to do. Will keep you posted on our trail riding schedule :)
Will see what happens, you never know I might just show up ;)
I will keep you posted on rides. We're working on some possibilities. Volleyball is jumbling up a lot of my time right now, but that will be over October 21. I am always trying to find someone to ride with during the week. Do you work?
Riding every chance we get! Well right now I'm in the middle of coaching volleyball at our high school, and so my Saturdays are games until the end of October. But I can ride during most days. I will have to think about the club thing. I am pretty much burned out on breed clubs, and just want to ride and do fun things with my horses (parades, performance, etc.) without politics. I just got burned big time by the TWH club :(
