I can tell you that it's not jealousy. That may be the case sometimes, but not always. Guarantee it.

Adults apparently don't realise we don't all have the some moral and ethical codes that dictate our behaviour. ;)

Would you mind explaining Judecca. Im guessing that you are younger, so I would like to hear your side of this "issue."

Please and thank you! (:

You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.

To be completely honest, it's the internet and people saying rude thing about you/your horse is most likely going to happen. You just have to be the bigger person and not let it get to you.

I've had people tell me my mare is so fat she must be pregnant (LOL, if they think she's fat I'd hate to see what they think is a good weight!), I'm fat and need to loose weight, my mare is worthless and never going to get anywhere. And that was just in one post. HAHAHA. All of which I know is completely untrue. What other people say has absolutely no affect on me. Some people just like to try and stir up sh*t for the fun of it.

I'm sorry rude things were said about your horses, it hurts but YOU know your horses better than anyone, just try your best to brush it off. :)

On Leah's notes, I know plenty of 30 and 40 year olds that are still children.

I have to say, I've seen some adults that were just as bad as kids when it comes to saying rude things. In fact, some of the worst stuff I've seen on the internet said about other peoples horses has come from adults.

ETA: Basically what Spastic Dove just said.

telling a person his/her horse is ugly or anything insulting is like telling a mama her baby is ugly...you just don't do it!

And I agree with ya close2!

Constructive criticism is helpful. Calling someone's horse "not great" or "sucky" or "ugly" is absolutely unnecessary. (Ok, "not great" taken in the context of "will be he a great GP jumper?" is different...)
Anyways, I think these people completely crossed the line, there was no need for any of it.

Just saw that LOTV is banned, good on the mods.
Anyways, this is the internet, there are people who think that they can do and say whatever they want, and unfortunately they target whomever they think they possibly can and get a reaction. It stinks, because the internet is anonymous so there's no need to own up for anything. So... try to not take it to heart, and instead listen to the 99% of other people that say otherwise.

I suppose I should have explained my definitions of "children" and "adults."

I believe that in order to act on a mature level, one must be able to speak in the manner that I described. There are plenty of "grown ups" who choose to act like children. There are plenty of youngsters with every ability in the world to speak like an adult.

ETA: Morals have (or should have) little to do with common sense.
