arghh! Does this annoy anyone else?

Sorry, I am going to have a mini rant

Does it annoy anyone else when peple who know nothing/little about horses or people who think they know about horses see you walk behind your horses butt or while you are doing their tail and they tell you to move away or watch out because it will kick you? It really annoys me, even if they are trying to be nice! It's like, I know my pony won't kick me, even if there are loads of flies, she will kick her belly, not give me a twatting. If she doesn't boot me when i groom under her belly near her back legs or put a cold hose on her why would she kick me for walking behind her?! AND! Its safer to walk directly behind or miles away, and in the stable you dont have miles to be out of kick reach so just walk behind the horsie. ok im done

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

I say you know your horse best. Now, if there was a beginner rider or a young child standing behind a horse, I would definitely point out safety facts.

OMG I know! That annoys me soo much.
It's like, I know my horse more than you do; puh-leaseee lol.
Once I was picking Lexi's hooves, this occured about a week or two ago, & this new girl at my barn, who's about 12 was like "be careful not to touch the frog! it can hurt them cuz its sensitive." I felt like saying, "No, REALLY?! You think I'd know about that by now!" LOL. :P Ughh that stuff annoys me.

Ride more, worry less.

i know exactly what you mean. Everyone (well the kids anyways) where i board would always tell me to use a chain with Vega, and all these other training "methods" that i just didn't agree with.

I always say "Thanks, but i rather do it my own way"

Well i will admit i am far from bein an expert.. i do know a few things but i will always be learnin. I agree tho, i wouldn't want someone tellin me how i should do things around my horse.. i mean if i get kicked, well heck i must of bein askin for it.. and i will get up (after awhile lol) and get back to work.

I dont like it when people act like they no alot about horses, but they actually no little to nothin.. But i am always happy to find someone that enjoys talkin about horses, but at my school nobody wants to talk about horses. SOOO i talk here yay

I love my horse. She is the wind beneath my wings.

LOL..... ya'all need to simmer down!!!!!!! LOL.... I don't like being told what to do either! Wait till you're in the supermarket with your KIDS and someone tells you what to do...You'll wanna tie 'em up behind your horses!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I know EXACTLY what you mean.

I get majorly annoyed sometimes with some of the other girls that work at my yard. I do NOT need to be told the same facts about specific horses that I have known for MONTHS, years even, or even about horses in general just because I have been away at uni for a term. I DO remember.

Thankfully I've learnt to keep my cool. I'm working on dropping very subtle hints that I don't need to be told this stuff over and over :roll:
