I like how you think, DriftingShadow. It's a level of professionalism in selling anything..

As far as backing down and NOT wearing those things in public, hmmm.. it's not about hiding it, it's about 1) safety (b/c I know around here it would be DANGEROUS to have showing) 2) it just doesn't look professional 3) is it really worth the fight? As you get older, you realize some things just are NOT. Other things are. This is not one of those things that is worth the fight.. but again.. the flag thing isn't the focus.. and FTR, my son has a shirt that has a tiny rebel flag on the front breast b/c it's a rodeo shirt.. the back says "Wanna be a cowboy" with a picture of a little boy watching a bull rider. I don't let him wear it to school b/c it's not allowed in the schools here..

What really made the decison for me was one night when I was leaving our town's walmart. I had realized I needed printer ink while I was working on a project, and I had thrown on an old sweatshirt not even thinking, and driven to walmart. The sweatshirt had a picture of the rebel flag, plus a blurb about 'down in dixie'.

A group of men I ran into as I was leaving greeted me with a "hey white girl you got a problem with us?!" as soon as they saw the sweatshirt. I guess I could have slowed down and explained the historical aspect of it to them, but they really didn't seem too eager to listen

That wasn't the first time I had confrontations like that, so honestly, if not wearing that stuff out in public means I'm living my life for other people and letting them make decisions for me...yep! I sure am! And it's not bothering me in the slightest

To each their own though. Her saddle blanket choice (and anyone elses) really isnt affecting my life any. My original post was only supposed to state that not EVERYONE sees it as just a flag, or a nod to some part of our country's past. That is all I meant by it.

We all have opinions, you are entitled to your's as am I. I'm not going to argue with either of you. You have your way of life and I have mine..Take it as you want it. Maybe it's the way you're raised..

I'm not from the states.....so I guess I saw the 'humor' and the 'horror' in the Craigslist ad as a whole.......

It just amazes me at the number of people who don't take the time to create a good advertisement and take good pictures to SELL your horse. To make money from it. My horses look the best in their lives when I'm selling them, and their photos are made up to show-horse standards - including video! Although maybe that's the difference between asking $10k and $100...

To everyone who has looked down on the advertisement and the seller, whether because of a rebel flag saddle pad, because of young pregnancy (you don't even know if that is the seller in the photo, do you?), less than stellar spelling abilities, or the horse's less than fantastic appearance:

Dig deep down, now! Do you feel better about yourself?

That's what I think when I see this thread and that ad.

Oh I didn't realize I was entertained and laughing to make me feel better about myself. Thanks for straightening me out LMAO. Laughter is part of life. I suppose you never laugh when someone falls either

I'm probably the first one falling and the first one laughing. But, honestly, all I felt was aggravation when I read this. Laughs didn't make it across, sorry.

Oh for goodness sake. It was started as light hearted bc it's freakin funny. People take things way out there. Perhaps we should all lighten up and learn to find the humor in things. Don't find it funny? Move on. I'm far from a child. Don't really need anyone's approval of my sense of humor.
