Hi Nancy - just some thoughts on the section about Gait. I believe that all horses are gaited, just that some are gaited diagonally (generally those that trot)and some are lateral (those that pace and those that do whatever their breed "special" name is for it; i.e. corto, foxtrot, tolt, andadura,rack, running walk, etc.)- Janet

Re changing the way catalogues are listed

Hi Chris,

I see you changed [[horse/catalogs/fictional horses]] to:

[[/fictional horses|fictional horses]]

my question is, is that to teach us (me) a convenient shorthand, or is it something about the code that I should learn?

I was just experimenting. I'm not sure what is best. One problem with what I did is that it is not obvious it is linking to a sub-subpage and on some catalog pages i have seen a mix of links to sub-subpages and regular articles (Snack/Catalogs was one). Possibly it should be [[/fictional horses|Catalog of fictional horses]] to be more descriptive. My only goal was to make it look more approachable. Witht he original name it look a little less inviting. Chris Day 23:54, 28 May 2008 (CDT) !! Did I just notice you use nowiki tags??
