    Wyoming, whilst you and I have disagreed i've never found you offensive or harassing.

    Sometimes people just need telling straight out (infact the vast majority of people need it) and whilst there is a fine line between blunt and rude, I find you fallon the blunt side

    That is why I reread what you wrote and said "dropped off"..
    I think its great the foal is doing better. As I tried to say, I was trying to tell folks how the first vets were in the city and not open to seeing you since you were a new client. I said how much you said the vet quoted you. I explained about you giving shots for three day instead of three in one day, and how I said usually 10 days is better. I was trying to help everyone understand where you were coming from and then said some things I felt concerned about.
    Actually I was trying to explain things as you wrote to me, to the others. I was not trying to sound nasty or say you were doing things wrong.
    I hope the foal continues to do well, as I said I hope he does. Sometimes natural cures work, sometimes they don't.
    Good luck.

    Thanks faye,People disagree all the time. Sometimes the advice or suggestions I might give aren't worth a darn to someone and sometimes they are.
    that's why is called a forum, to give ideas and thoughts to each other.
    If someone doesn't like what they hear, don't throw a tantrum, don't call people rude or nasty, just say thanks and go on to the next post.. Surely in all the posts from folks when asked for advice, a person has to learn something.
    Being nasty is just stupid and a waste of time. Trust me, I can get rude and sometimes want to reach through the computer screen and shake some of these posters, but not my business if they don't want to take advice given by very experienced folks. Or as Whisper said" my word is gospel". I really could care less if someone does or doesn't take my advice or help, just ignore it then.
    The funny thing is, this happens all the time. The FIRST thing 99% of the forum members will say when someone write and says" my horse is sick, what do I do, my horse might be pregnant, what do I do", get a vet!!!. You would think most posters would get that by now and expect that is what they are going to hear.

    Foal
    Thank You wyominggrandma for this last post. I was upset. I can see where you took my comment as me being nasty but, hope you understand now that I wasn't trying to come off that way.

    I meant it more to Whisper.. I was one of the posters who disagreed when she did not want to get a vet out for her pregnant mare.. She didnt like my point of view. She got a healthy foal, good for her..
    I understand what you were saying,TheresaD, no worries. Keep posting,keep asking question, keep learning from all the vast experience all the forum members can give you. It is well worth it.
    NOW, I expect to see photos of the little man soon..

    I will try to post a picture since there have been a few of you asking. Hopefully I can figure out how to do that.

    I have to say when I was sitting in my living room this morning deciding whether I should take my dog to the vet or not I thought of all you guys. Went online, but not to a forum because I knew everyone would say take her to the vet, which is where she is going to be until tomorrow at the earliest.

    Well first she was attacked by a Pitt Bull on Sat - now that was scary. Luckily no skin broken but one very scared and sore puppy doggie. Since he didn't break the skin I didn't take her to vet but she was throwing up everywhere last night. Woke me at 3 am outside my door throwing up. But it wasn't food it was liquid but not the normal yellowish bile. This was brown and almost looked like sand but wasn't. Anyhoo took her to vet and she has a fever and her stomach is really hard so they are doing tests and have her on an iv. Sheesh last month was the Equine and this month the dog hubby going to love me when he gets home.
