kmd, I consider you a responsible owner. You get the vet out when and if it's necessary, and keep up with their dental and farrier care. You don't cheap out if the animals really need it.
I have a very loonnnggg list of threads in my head where I just want to reach through the computer and slap someone stupid, but I think that would be redundant since it's apparent they're stupid enough.
Most of the time I don't even bother to answer those threads anymore, because they don't want to hear reason, they just want someone to tell them they're a good person and how to fix their problems without involving an outlay of money or time. Threads like this:
Oh bother! My horse impaled himself on a spike and now he's bleeding all over, and his intestines are oozing from the wound. I don't have time for this, stupid horse! How do I fix it? And don't say a vet, 'cause I ain't got no money!
Yeah, where's my flamethrower?
