I hate that they are breeding away from true stayers.

Have seen some of the current photos on Canine Chronicle fb;  always whimsical, esp. those dogs, were they Afghans? who were shopping at a booth and a bit dressed for the occasion.  Handlers and owners have a lot of fun with this, along with the judges, too!  

Also love seeing the images from Morris and Essex with the classic vintage clothes and antique cars in the background.  Some of the people have such flair.

This was a comment on the Woofstock topic and I just saw it end up here.  Oh, well.

Always follow horses with German lines since they are bred for stamina and longevity.  Also grateful to Brad Kelly at Calumet for valuing this type of horse.

As I mentioned today, German stayers.  Loft, German-bred, just won the two mile Belmont Gold Cup  (G-2). I was hoping for Cibolian to win because he is a Temple City  (Dynaformer).  Cibolian did finish 4th, almost 3rd.  Waiting to see how Jackie's Warrior does in next race.

Thank you for this article;  will read it tonight.

Did you happen to read about Americain having died in Australia recently?  Altho I knew he was sold to Aus., I did  not know that in earlier years  (2010)  he won the Melbourne Cup and in 2011 won Prix de Raux and Moonea Valley cup.  Came 4th in Melb. Cup that year, too.  He was retired and broke his leg at the farm in Aus.  Was put down there at 17 yrs. of age.

Americain earned almost 6 mil. in 34 starts.  Another link with Dynaformer gone.  May he rest in peace.
