No I misunderstood slightly what you were trying to convey. Of course you could include anything you like on your website, and success stories give people the opportunity to see what can be achieved if thing are approached correctly and carefully. The consumer likes to see success stories tempered with the odds and everyone likes a rags to riches story. I thought the information that I did supply including those posted by AnnaE ect WERE Maybe you could personally contact people such as John O'Leary who obviously has seen his fair share of OTT horses, perhaps he could offer some suggestions about obtaining more data, ect and from where you can access it. There are literally thousands of studies, articles, papers, presentations stats that are directly related to the issue of soundness in the TB race horse (not so many that are STB specific). They discuss things like track conditions affect on soundness, training regimes both here and overseas, feed, growth of young horses, drug therapies being used and trialed to increase longevity, plus the welfare issues surrounding the wastage of horses bred and post-racing. The entire thread was designed with just this in mind..........least in was in my mind, maybe it didn't get transposed into forum-speak. Just as cigarette companies place warnings on their products, and authorities continue to get the message out there, ultimately the consumer will chose what path to take.....it still does not negate the need for information because if one person stops smoking its considered a win, if one person stays alive from not smoking then all the information was validated.
