[QUOTE=Is your friend's horse okay? Golf balls hurt to get hit with.[/QUOTE]

Yeah thankfully it only suffered a few bruises but the next time they came my friend was there and scremed her face off at them...... they havent done it again... yet.

I also hate it when people make rude jokes about me and my horses. Its disgusting and crude. Its not like I make filthy jokes about them and their dogs or their motorbikes :S

I hate the school gate parents who constantly say my son is a 'fairy' or is going to turn out to be gay because he rides horses and does ballet and plays the cello. Like being gay is a bad thing.

Why should it matter if he is gay or not?? So long as he is happy and healthy I don't give two hoots what his sexual orientation is - and to put that stigma onto a 3 year old is sick IMO. He is a boy who likes the fine arts......he also likes jumping in cow pats and riding his dirt bike in the mud - there is a bigger picture in life than which team you bat for.

If my boy wants to dance the nutcracker then he will dance the nutcracker, if he wants to dress up in fairy wings and pretend that he is an elf and paint his horse with sparkles and ribbons then he will. If my boy wants to play bach and make his mummy cry with his beautiful music then he will and if anyone trys to stand in his way or makes him feel bad about himself because he does things other than play with trucks and play rugby then god help them , because they will feel the proud mothers wrath - nobody messes with my baby.!


Sorry but it makes me so angry, it is heart breaking when he is crying because somebody told him he was a girl or gay for doing those things - it is bad enough if it is a child saying those things , but when it is a adult saying that to my baby boy then they are going to get a major ass whooping. Im just glad his Daddy stands up for him too, he is a real mans man - but he is so proud of his little lad when he is up their on the stage giving it his best in the sea of pink tutus.

Scoope, reading that made me sooooooo cranky. I can't believe the nerve of those parents. He sounds like such a VERY tallented boy and it angers me to think that he would be crying because someone called him a girl. They need to grow up and accept everybody as they are and not see them as gay or wierd just because they don't always do the "manly" or "boyish" things. Grrr.

It makes me so angry I physically shake and have to go and calm myself down before I say or do something I might later regret. It is bad enough play ground bullying , but when it is an adult attacking a child it is deplorable.

People think I'm gay as well. Not just because I ride horses, but because I don't come of as very manly. I sleep with a stuffed animal, I don't date, I tend to do girl things, and etc. It gets real annoying, and I have a friend that would love to have a mom that thought the same way you did about gay people because she's gay and her mom doesn't know cause she doesn't take lightly to gay people.

Kudos, you sound like a very good parent!

And I'm not sure what he meant by it, but one day I was walking into my apartment building after being at the barn. I was muddy, had cowboy boots on and wearing my plaid jacket. I passed three guys and one said to the others "now that is a girl you don't want to date".
I hate to admit it, but this is one of the times I would have pulled out a sexual joke and turned to face this idiot and said, very calmly, while looking him up and down: 'You're right I just got done riding a 1600 lb animal. You're obviously not enough man for me.' Jerks!

And Dusty, my bf's mom gets the same questions all the time. She has 12(?) cats now. All fat, happy, spayed/neutered. Well, except for mama cat who started it all. She is missing something up stairs and just recently calmed down enough that you can catch her in a raccoon trap and she doesn't try to bash her head in. Just waiting until the latest batch of kittens are old enough to be alone and mama gets hauled to the vet.
And she is not a cat hoarder like some people say, she will give away kittens to a good home, so long as she doesn't become attached to them first.
As long as their healthy and happy, who cares?? It seems that she is doing the right thing and doing with love. No one else's business about her little babies, Jeeze! Once I hear how many cats she had I'd probably be jumping up and down syaing 'Show me! Show me! How many can I have?'

I'm not violent by nature, but please can you tell me where you come from so I can beat these people up? It won't fall back on you, I promise, you point and I slap, see how easy?
This is really hurtful to hear. How can people still be this way in the day and age??? It actually makes me sick!
And I LOVE how you threw it out there, WHO does care if he IS gay? Not that his choices in music, extracurricular activites make it so, but even if... You sound like and awesome and awesomely proud Momma and I hug you and applaud you. In all honesty, I think a lot of the people that say these things are truly jealous. Men say it because they wish they COULD be and do the things they would prefer but fear to be man enough to let down the stereotype and women probably for the usual -if I can't do it that well I must say some cutting remark about those who can-. I'm really feeling angry about this. Again, Kudos to you AND your manly husband for accepting and loving and supporting your wonderful talented son, no matter what. You rock <3

That's just plain silly. My daughter's father does the same things, well, he sleeps with a teddy bear, her NAME is Teddy, he is very effeminate in his mannerisms and is sensitive to other people. People think he is gay all the time. Nope, he's not, he's just secure enough with himself that he doesn't have to play macho. And girls can't get enough of him, lol.
Kudos, KatesRider, for being yourself. Once again a gem of truth from you. <3

He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

I agree with everything Dusty said! Well put!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Like you guys, I hate it when people make comments about horses. They think they are stupid, and that you can just get on them, sit there and pull the reins and the horse will start moving.

What annoys me EVEN MORE is people that think some things about horses are 'cute' and some are 'absoulutely disgusting, revolting, sickening and horrible'
"Aww, he's cute." *stands in front of horse and strokes nose*
"Uh uh."
"Ewwwww.... what is THAT?"
"Poo."
And suddenly the horse is not so cute anymore. Again, I hate it when people call horses stupid. A lot of horses are a LOT more sensible than people.

So, yeah...

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question, or asked the question wrong.* ~Pat Parelli

^^my boyfriend used to work as a plumber. He was helping me clean stalls on the weekend and a chunk of poop would not stay on the pitch fork so I just grabbed it with my bare hand. And he thought I was absolutely disgusting.

Its just horse poop, really, how many horse people haven't had apple fights?
