    I don't do online role playing, so I know next to nothing about the two WOW factions.

    At the barn I used to board at, we were getting ready to take my paint mare, who has exceptional bloodlines (Sonny Dee Bar and numerous other well known paints) to get bred to a World Champion Buckskin halter horse. (We plan on showing our baby halter and eventually showing him WP once he's three or four.) Well the BO's daughter, who has a tennessee walker / rocky mtn. Horse / pony mix, got the idea into her head that this horse should be bred too.

    *hits head on wall multiple times*

    I have nothing against any of those breeds of horse, WHEN THEY"RE PUREBRED and have a purpose in life.

    Her reason: I just love her color and I think the Buckskin bred to Misty (her horse who is colored like a rocky mtn. And has the biggest head you'll ever see, not to mention she's only fourteen hands) would make a really cute sorrel baby.
    Then I could have my own baby to raise and show.

    *hits head on wall more times*

    "then I could have my own baby to raise and show" - coming from someone who wanted to go to a jumping show in a western saddle and kept calling the barrel saddle a "jumping saddle". She also didn't know what a lead was. This girl also said my very well trained western pleasure, registered, with very good Zippo and Dynamic Deluxe bloodlines, quarter horse "would get beat by Misty (her little mare) at a show because your horse was too slow and her head was too low when you rode her, so Misty will beat her because she is faster and keeps her head up and proud"

    And her father, who is about 50, agreed and started looking on... drum roll please... CRAIGSLIST for a stud to breed her to, because $500 (the buckskin's stud fee) was too much to breed a good horse for.

    The fact that he even thought about breeding this horse was enough... not to mention that their stalls are made of pipe gates, their fences are two strands of hot wire and they don't feed their horses unless it's winter. Not a suitable environment for a baby.


    Sorry for the rant! Just stupid people make me thankful that I was raised with a somewhat decent conscience about horses in general.

    My man's uncle has a mare and stallion in a pasture together. There is a 2 year old, and now a new filly, one week old. *Headdesk*. None are taken care of. They don't even know what a farrier is. *Headdesk again*. The two year old has never been touched, the mare runs from you, the new baby hasn't been(and probably won't be) touched. The stallion is the only sane one, ironically. And they are trying to sell them for $100 a peice. When my boyfriend told me that, I nearly died. Actually PAY for psycho horses who aren't trained to the least extent? Please. I wish he would GIVE them to someone who had the time to work with them. They've ruined that two year old, about to ruin the new baby. X/

    I hate dogs being BYB more than horses. Although the labradoodle is a nice dog, I sure the heck not going to pay 700 for a mutt. I have a pure bred Black Mouth Curr, not registered, and guess what? I got her for free. The best Dog (her name) I could ask for. IDK why people are willing to shell out so much money for a dog when they can go get one that's already vaccinated, spayed or nuetured, and socialized for about 75 bucks from the spca?
    Sorry off subject here, but I looked at your photos I so want that cute calf lol!!!
