yes, the worst are the dog owners who have never been around horses and then proceed to let their dogs out of the car to do whatever!
The dog runs around and through the barn,chases the cats,barks at the horses, gets in the paddocks,chases the horses around. All the while the owner is saying "how cute little fido is!" then when he gets hurt or almost gets hurt. They go on on how mean the horses are and that they should be locked up for not playing nice with the dog!
Also, people who lock up barns AIR TIGHT in the winter is another peeve of mine. Yeah , okay it is all nice and warm for you...the horses are 1: getting more prone to respiratory illness from breathing in the LOVELY perfume of ammonia,manure,sawDUST,and dust from all other various things. 2: most likely overheating if they are blanketed AND shut up that tight in a stall. Unless they're clipped.
And people who think horses can't go out in winter because their "ear tips will freeze off..." or they'll break a leg! Okay if it is SUPER icy...then fine. But if it is just cold . They deal perfectly fine! Especially with adequate hay and shelter and even a blanket! "rolls eyes"
They can feel free to leave their horses inside to go nuts (NICE VIEW! FOUR WALLS! *crib*crib* crib*) ...but yea, as for mine he will be outside eating hay! (yes, even in negative degree weather! With shelter) and actually be able to breathe! And have a different view and be able to walk around keep a little bit fit and limber LOL
But that is just my very obvious opinion. :P
