    That's pretty bad - rider or horse?  Expert vet says scores with comments reflect horse compensating, not moving freely.

    We all know that if we bought a horse that was nerved, and it wasn't revealed - we'd have the owners in court, too.

    As many of you know, I defended (while ducking the entire time!) Ann Romney against attacks that dressage horses were "elite".

    But this is beyond the pale.  I have read the expert opinion twice, and there is no way I can create, in my mind, any plausible scenario where the Romneys were unawares their sore horse was suddenly sold sound and upper level.

    If somebody can do that, please feel free.   Because as much as I hate Mitt Romney's politics, knowing someone defrauds on a horse deal - from vet, to trainer, to owner - makes my blood run very, very angry.

    And this happened a couple years ago - and even though the fourth injection of sedative/analgesic could not be explained (trainer gave most likely) the Romneys are still using this trainer!

    ARG!   I cannot get past this.  I simply cannot.  This is much worse than Shamus on the roof ....  This is business fraud, and ethical emptiness, and simply mean and money-grubbing to the horse and new owner.

    2012: the Year of the Voting Woman. And by the way, Republicans ... we're pretty pissed about what you've done to our country. Republican Party Motto: "Tax the poor, gift the rich"
