If only more people would realize this... Can we make this the board's motto?!

But Zimpatico, what about all the teenagers that already know everything?

The good news is that they'll likely outgrow it. I know I did!

That's exactly what I was thinking of!! More worrisome are the adults who want a horsie in the backyard and know all they'll ever need to know from their sister's boyfriend's uncle who told them what to do...

Yes, those people scare me. Not for them so much, as for the poor horse who lost the Good Owner Lottery.

Being a noob is fine. We all were once. What's not fine is asking for advice, not getting the advice they wanted to hear, and then getting snarky and nasty.

Wild Mustangs, or OTTB's that need serious retraining, have soundness issues, and are hard keepers... Because the easy, healthy ones are BORING and they LOVE their PONEH!

Y'all just don't understand, because they have a majickal, speshul connection with their perfect poneh!

They feel SORRY for you, because you'll never have the bond they do with their horsie! They feel sorry for your horses too, because it's obvious you're a meanie doodie poo poo head who's abusive and neglectful!

Um, sure. It's all flowers, lollipops and butterflies until the horse starts acting like what it is, an untrained horse.

If the animal's lucky, it gets sold on to someone who can retrain it before it gets too farked up. If it's not lucky, it'll get sent to auction as a crazy, dangerous beast.

Then the whole cycle will start over again, because it couldn't possibly have been the owner's fault! The horse was just bad, and the next one they get will be perfect!

Can you tell I've seen this scenario happen over and over and over again?

Omg I'm rolling here! You all are too funny!!!!!!

You mean to say my poneh isn't majikal? I swear I saw a unicorn or something yesterday.
    11-11-2010, 11:55 AM
LOL! We just don't understand that kind of bond. It's fate, and we obviously have bad karma for picking on the kiddies.

Cinder, I hope you don't feel badly anymore about asking a valid question!!
    11-11-2010, 11:55 AM
Cinder, you can believe your poneh is majickal if you want.

Just don't believe you can train it with only lurve, treats, DVDs, and the Vulcan Mind Meld.

'Cause, y'know, they ain't got money fer no trainer. They're sure they can train their own horse, even though they've just learned which end poops and which end eats, especially since they have such a speshul bond!
