I won't drop it, because this is so important to horses, that they are viewed correctly. And no...these ARE facts. Stop right now, and find a university equine scientist's email (easy enough to do), and email him/her my post 176, and that person will tell you it is true.

This is another thing wrong with our culture. We don't believe in facts anymore, just opinions. And everybody's opinion is their own, and nothing is truly solid. That is dangerous thinking.

Goldie...I am sad that you are entertained by this. There are things to be learned, if people want, but this is not entertaining. To me, it's very disturbing and shows a huge gap in a lot of people's horse learning, to the detriment of many horses. "I got a screw up horse, and I can't deal with him." Ok, but can you see if all horse owners understood these principles, there would be many fewer messed up horses. I don't discount VERY RARE mentally ill horses. Most, most, most of troubled horses have been screwed up by humans who don't understand. That is what I would like to be curtailed as much as possible.

Do you think if you keep saying the same thing over and over and over in repetitive post after repetitive post (sometimes with no posts in between them) that people are going to suddenly decide that you are right?

We have all heard your point of view. Honest.

Saying it again will not change my opinion on the topic, I promise. I still know that BF is what she is. You saying it is not the case will never change her into a sweet and wonderful creature.

Agreed with AB.
I don't think a new point has been made in quite a few pages.
This thread is going in circles.

Science, as much as I love it can be and often is wrong. When you start applying it to living beings then you have no absolutes.

I've seen a welsh B eye up an electric fence, try to push it down and get zapped, so he turned sideways and pushed it with his rug. Has a horse got the brain power to do that? According to science no he hasnt, having seen it I have to say they have.

I've also seen a pony let itself out of the stable, go round and open all the other stables, he didnt find any food (i presume that was what he was going for) and then headed for the feed room (it was at this point that I intervened). Again science says he should not have been able to reason enough to open the bolts on those doors and he certainly shouldnt have been able to figure out how to open the kickbolt at the bottom of the door.

I've watched a horse wiggle its way out of a rug without damaging itself or the rug (I sat and watched because I was sick to death of finding expensive rugs inside out, soaking wet in the middle of the field). Deffinate premeditation there. The horse must have wanted the rug off and figured out a way to get it off. Unfortunatly for me he did it on a regular basis.

I've had enough experiance with horses to know that there are no absolutes with them and this seems to be something you are lacking.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

AlwaysBehind...please, dear. I am not the one I am trying to prove. FACTS are right. This is very important to horses. Email my post 176 to a university equine scientist and ask if this is right. Please do that. This is not my opinion. This is science.

Off the beam again, Faye. Rudimentary intelligent action is not moral decision. Read post 176.

I have seen what you were saying since you first said it. I'm sure that everyone else has, as well, so there is no point in reiterating it over and over again.
You aren't going to change anyone's mind if they don't already agree with you.
You're truly wasting your....finger muscles?

Why are you yelling at us?

Are you not reading?

Yes, we see what you are saying. I simply do not agree with you. Not agreeing does not mean I do not understand what you are trying to say.

This thread has gone on way too long and everyone has had a chance to respond. Time to end it.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
