Then just imagine how large peta's load would be.

PETA is not about the animals, it is just a bunch of people that feel bad because they are worthless and don't contribute anything to the world.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

You mean like the people who owned, abandoned, and kill the millions of dogs and cats now each year. The non PETA members are the ones that kill those millions, I can only assume they also are worthless and contribute nothing to the world.

You always have to remember that owning ANY kind of animal in ANY kind of way is against PETA's beliefs. If you're for PETA does that mean you agree that a bug has the same rights as a child? Does it mean that you are ALL FOR them destroying businesses like the terrorists they are? Assassinating people because of the business they own? It's ridiculous!

If you're for the green peace, does that mean you're against using paper? Against living in wood houses? Because they're against logging completely. I can't understand where their brain is. Do they want us to use plastic? No wait, plastic water bottles would fill our land fills to the brim. The plastics mills pollute the environment right? So bottled water is bad. So back to clay I guess, or horse pooh! Did you know they can make houses out of horse poop!

They do it.

They do things backwards. LOL I'm curious if you actually ride your horse or if you have it in a huge field 100+ acres just to let it run around. Because "riding horses is slavery" in PETA's opinion.

Seriously people, THINK! Before you go backing a group like PETA, get your brains in gear and do a little research. Look up what THEY themselves have to say... They're way off in their thinking.

While PETA doesnt like people owning animals they also arent the ones breeding and breeding... whether it is cats,dog, horses, etc... so non-PETA people are technically responsible for the deaths of millions of "pets". However when they get the animals they may not do the greatest job finding homes for them... but they arent the ones that created the mess in the first place.

I just don't like how PETA veiws how animals should live. I've been confronted by PETA people before at fairs and they try to tell me that my horse is "sad" because she was standing in the corner with her head down. But really my horse was resting after having a hard day. Also while exhibiting beef cattle at the state fair many were untied overnight (mine included) until the people were caught... I was thankfully doing a 1 AM check on my animals so myself and others that were awake got the lose animals caught and retied. It would have been great if the cattle would have gotten lose in the middle of St. Paul.

Ok, look outside the box! I am 100% against PETA! I am against that group because as a group they are insane and really doing more harm than good.

I AM however against the abuse and neglect of animals great and small. You DON'T have to be PETA to be against animal abuse! You won't stop the really evil people from breeding for money. I hate puppy mills!

But as a horse community look at it this way. Why are so many people out there still breeding their horses when there are SO MANY that need homes? I understand maintaining breed lines and such. But in our economy people are abandoning perfectly good horses in fields (which is legal in my state btw) just to die because they don't have the money to feed them. If people would be a LOT more selective about what horses they breed to whom then the problem would be a lot less great.

As what I can tell is the #1 horse forum on the internet, why don't we educate people about that instead of backing a group of wackos! It makes more sense to reach directly into the community in a pacifist way than to go burn down a breeding facility.

They do get things done, but in my opinion in the wrong way.
I am against PETA but for animal rights.
I eat meat (organic and local, etc)
I ride in a leather saddle.

I don't wear fur though. I also don't eat veal. *shrug*

My horse is happy and wouldn't know what to do if I "Set him free"

What has peta accomplished in their existence other than making themselves a mockery and to look like fools?

The ben & jerry's thing was disgusting.

PETA is like a local terrorist organization, regarding the way they do things, or attempt to get them accomplished.

What I meant was that they get some people (the non-extremists) thinking about rights for animals.
