But she only uses pictures of people who are doing something WRONG, and need to be told so. She may use a photo of someone's horse when the owner is perfectly innocent, but only to educate on what NOT to breed, and to criticise whoever may have created an ill-conformed horse.
And if your photograph is on the internet, she is within every right to use it. You put it out there, you better be prepared. If you have done nothing wrong you have nothing to worry about.

I have to be honest - the FHOTD blog was part of what started me riding. I went through the typical horse phase most young girls go through, and that was over by about thirteen years old as I never got to actually have riding lessons. A friend of a friend mentioned the blog on Facebook about eight months ago, and I started reading it - over the course of my first year at uni, I gradually got hooked onto it and it sort of reawakened my awareness of the horse world. About a month before I finished uni for the year, I was thinking 'what can I do this summer, I'll have tons of time to kill and I've managed to save up a bit of money'. My best friend had just killed many of our plans by getting a job just as I got free, and so I was thinking of joining a gym.

And then I thought, "I've always wanted to learn to ride, and I can afford it now. Why don't I treat myself?"

My best friend is a great rider, though she fell out of it after she quit her job at a livery farm where standards were steadily going downhill, and she helped encourage me - but I don't think I would have had the idea if things like the FHOTD blog had put horses into my consciousness again.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

there were so many curse words in it and all it did was call people stupid and ... no, not real impressed. not really at all.

Thank you 84. I agree with you 100%. There is a much better way to get across without using half the vocabulary she uses and by being respectful towards people regardless of what's been done.

The kid isn't trust worthy. I would be afraid to say anything to her as she would probably post it on her-blog.

the site is interesting. it's outrageous to see all the people out there who abuse horses and then take pictures and videos of it and post it online! she does seem to have a tendency to be overly critical, but the internet is full of people who voice their full opinion regardless of opposing views.

I like reading it as seeing some of the crazies out there makes me feel more normal. however if she truly wanted to change the minds and actions of people regarding their horses making fun of them on the internet is NOT the way to do it. Although some people posted on her site are flat out ignorant, I believe that more are just uneducated and given the chance, would be willing to "change their ways". Afterall you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
BUT I am also sick of all her "followers" yelling GELD IT at the first site of a stallion. Why is all the blame placed on the stud? Why dont we shout "spay it!" when we see a mare that isn't breeding quality? Afterall, if we had a dog who we weren't breeding, we would spay her. Why is is that mares can have nice conformation, and that's enough to make them breeding worthy? Shouldn't they also be required to have an established show record, extensive promoting AND good conformation? Anyways, Im getting off topic but yes I like fugly, but no I do not like the way she hands out advice.
