If you have nothing nice to say sometimes its best to say nothing at all. But you obv can't do that as some of the posters in this thread have decided that turning the other cheek is not for them, well to each their own but that's not how I was raised and I don't downgrade people for spelling and such. Learn some manners, I am sure you were raised better yourself and if you wasn't then you need to grow up and better yourself.
That would be me, and I do not think that my suggestions have been in any way down-grading, offensive, or in any way or form 'attacking' the OP. I have replied courteously to any and all information given to me by him, realizing that he is indeed an experienced driver even though I don't completely understand some of the 'lingo' used (possibly my fault, I'm still learning as well about all of the harness parts, types, etc). I hardly think it's fair to call me cruel or ignorant. Any advice that I've given has been in a kind fashion, giving OP tips on how to get more replies (by making his posts more understandable).
MichaelVanessa- I think you're doing wonderful for having just entered the internet world! I highly doubt that you've offended
anyone, you're obviously posting in a helpful and kind manner. Rather, its just a little bit hard to understand you, and that's why I was recommending that you use a spell check and put your lovely pictures (Tricky is absolutely adorable, by the way. I just love how tiny she is and the pink tack is great!) directly onto the thread. Ease of access. Perhaps I should of told you exactly how to do those things before- so sorry that I didn't think of it before. You can always ask if you don't know what someone means though, or how to get to something! We're happy to help.
To use spell check, what I do is get on the internet and just type in 'spell check' into google or yahoo. You'll be given plenty of different ones to choose from, and all that you have to do is write your replies or threads into it, click 'check' and it will help you fix things right up! You can the copy and paste it onto the Horse Forum. If you don't know how to copy/paste, all you have to do is click your mouse over something, drag it until the whole paragraph is blue, right click- press 'copy' and then go to the other website and press 'paste' wherever you want to put it.
To upload pictures on here, there are a few ways. The way that I do it is by using a website such as Photobucket (you have to make an account) or Tinypic (you don't have to make an account but can only do one picture at a time) and upload it just like you're putting it into an album. You can then use the DIRECT LINK that it gives you in your album, copy it, come onto horse forum, look up at the bar that says 'B I U A
and then has those three little icons. Press the one that looks like a mountain and sun (third one) and put your link in it. The picture will show up just like this!
(everyone say hi to Fara, our pony! XD)
I hope that you and Tricky have many more years together, and thanks for trying so hard!
