    Facebook or Twitter for horses?

    Most of you may know (or perhaps this is more common in the "younger" generation) that oftentimes horse owners will create a Facebook/Twitter/etc. account for their horse and update it with blurbs from the horse's mouth, so to speak. When well done, it can be rather amusing.

    My question is, what is the best and easiest platform to use? I'm thinking it'd be a fun little project to do with the horses that I ride because they can be so expressive and opinionated that they make me laugh. I am only familiar with Facebook, but I can see several cons that might outweigh the pros. Someone suggested Twitter to me, but I just don't know enough about it to decide.

    I think it can be quite humorous!

    I think it's a great idea cause then your non-horsey friends don't have to hear your pony-talk. They just don't understand sometimes... or are jealous... haha.

    Haha, exactly!

    I started a Facebook account for the stallion. I decided on FB since most of the barn/horse people I know have an account there, so they'd be easy to reach whereas not everyone has a Twitter account. So far, it's been a hit! :)
