A Finch.. Toto said that they TRY HARD.. so as a forum moderator you should carefully read each post before you tell some one that they are wrong.
Toto also said;
I said no sored horses have been in the show ring since 08 and that's a fact!
That is proven incorrect!
it don't say anything about them being shown- they talked about those horses being tested and being sored before they entered the ring- that's when they do the testing
As I pointed out that the USDA goes in sometimes AFTER the original testing is done. The horses they catch WERE going to be in the ring. The USDA does not have the funding to go to every show, so one can assume that when they are not there to catch the sored horses "missed" by the SHOW testers, they will be in the show ring. No rocket science there.
As for their "trying hard"....Only some of the people are trying. Some others, a few of whom are at the very top of the game, are definitely NOT trying at all. The fact that this show is allowing the banned and, supposedly reviled, McConnel to sponsor a trophy being given at this show shows how little they care about cleaning up the industry, IMO.
There were more comments that really got under my skin that I won't even bother with.
Just because I am a mod (a VOLUNTEER
who spends a lot of my time working here) doesn't mean I cannot also voice an opinion.
Ill let you sock me if im wrong, lol.
