I know that I haven't overstepped any of the bounds of this forum, nor have I even been rude. Profanity certainly does just that. I have always been polite and refrained from foul language in my posts, and have had numerous rewarding conversations with other members here.
Not everyone ultrasounds their horse, I understand that, but I was simply stating that it is certainly affordable. I also believe that it is irrisponsible to own horses and not expect unexpected expenses, and be financially prepared for it. I went on a trail ride one day, my horse got cut on a culvurt that was hidden in some brush, a few hours later, I had a $500 vet bill. That is life with horses.
I never lectured you, but in fact tried to make you feel better, and look at the brighter side of a possible unwanted/bizarre breeding that was certainly avoidable in the first place.
As for your horse getting what she wants when she wants:
Being bred by a miniature horse while injured?
Having a pitch fork thrown at her?
Not calling a vet because you don't trust him?
What kind of a response were you exactly expecting from posts like those?
I do believe a moderator should come clean up or lock this thread so that the young readers and all other readers for that matter don't have to read disgusting profanity while trying to discuss horses. There is no excuse for that kind of language on a forum like this. Express your displeasure with my response in another way.
