Ok guys/gals, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but don't you think some of you could be a little more positive?
Keith and his family have bought Troy, they love him, they have a support network in place for advice and help. They're keen to learn and are giving Troy a happy loving home. They're committing themselves to learning and are getting pleasure out of it, instead of making negative or unneccessary remarks could you not offer advice, be helpful and make positive comments?
We were all beginners once. All eager to spend our lives with horses/ponies. How would you feel if you were getting negative comments? Remember this forum is open to all ages and the majority of the members are minors. This forum is a "friendly" place, but so far Keith and his family aren't seeing much of that.
If you have something to say that is negative or not of the same opinion, try thinking how that member will feel when reading it. Try wording it better, explaining why etc...
The Horseforum is a brilliant place, and its growing all the time. Please don't make it a place for negativity or unfriendliness. :(
