  1. Which begs the question, why the track surface issues in California?

  2. The paradoxic way in which different type of quarter horses are bred show it to be paradoxic even to compare quarter horses to quarter horses. Many of the “Foundation” types are among the best using horses in the world, the Three Bars and Beduinos speak for themselves as sprinters and the bulldog type show horses have heads similar to the Yorkshire hogs I use to breed and hardly run as well.
    Is that part of the anatomy called sand now days?
