A lot of people don't see horses (or other animals, for that matter) the way that the ones who are passionate about them do. To them, a horse is a tool or a toy. They don't believe it has feelings or even really thinks.

You have a good point DrafyAires. I just find it so difficult to understand why people pursue things (i.e. horse ownership) when they really don't care about it. What is the point for them? fitting into a different community? All they are doing is spending money on something they really don't care about. I can understand why someone may own a horse for a short while, I mean they may love it for a bit and then realize that it's a lot more work than they anticipated and then sell, but why not just lease then to get an idea of how ownership works?

Most people don't know about or understand leases.

As for getting into something they're not really interested in, a lot of times it's because it's what all the "cool people" are doing.

Yes, that's exactly what I'll do. Send my unwanted broke horse to a 10 word online ad. I think you're going to have to try a little harder than that to get a horse.

Wanted: horse

will like to give your unwanted broke horse a home.

Maybe "never been neutered"? Interesting way of spelling...

Riders aren't 16 and pregnant. Riders are 16 and arthritic.

It sort of stood out to me, the whole line about, "Is NOT impressive and is not HYPP". Perhaps they should have capitalized "Impressive" and made it look like they were not criticizing the horse! haha
If I didn't have a horse with Impressive in his pedigree (he is non-HYPP, too), I would have no clue what they were saying.

I'm a little late but I just thought I'd pitch in and say that Featherfeet is right, sometimes it is actually very responsible not to geld a dwarf. We have a 14 year old Brachiophalactic (sp?) dwarf stallion who was never gelded because we had three vets see him and all three told us that he would have only a 20% chance of making it through anesthesia. He has narrowed nasal passages which constricts his breathing some, so any amount of sedation is very unsafe for him. He's even kept awake to be floated for that reason. Ofcourse, as responsible owners, we don't allow him to be with any of our mares on the slight chance that he could overcome his deformities and mount a mare, but he doesn't show any stallion traits because we've worked with him and he's just fine with a small band of geldings that he plays with :)

Good for you Endiku, for taking on the responsibility of a dwarf. I am quite sure though, he gives you endless pleasure.
