No, I am not afraid of the truth, not at all.
Junior, the horse that LOTV was downing on has had a harder life then all three of my horses. The story is in the thread I linked from the original post on this thread (sorry if that was confusing). If someone thinks that my horses are pieces of sh*t, so be it, but that doesnt mean that they have to voice their opinion and be rude while doing it. LOTV would say very rude thing, then when someone when to explain she would just say, "sorry, your post was to long for me to care about."
Like I said, people can think what they thing of me, but when they say something about my horses, that just doesnt fly.
Your horses don't have to go through more or less because of what someone says. It doesn't affect them in any way, so why should it affect you? A dog at my mom's has had a really hard life (she is mostly blind because of the maltreatment she received), and she is freaking ugly
. I mean ugly as sin. But, ****, do I love that dog, and I'm okay with people telling me she's ugly or whatever. Her eyes are weird-looking because of her blindness, and one girl said that she was kinda freaked out by it. I was just like, yeah, I can understand that, even though I'm not, and I don't think it should be held against the dog personally.
Well, if someone was bitching and whining at you for, like, four paragraphs for a sentence or two you said, would you really feel like reading it all and then responding?
