PETA and horse stories?

Just wondering if anyone had any stories they had about PETA (not the ones that are normal, the extremist).

I've always heard interesting stories, but I can't seem to remember some.

I know that a long, long, long time ago my friend was at a show and some PETA extremist came to the show, throwing (what looked like blood--but it wasn't!) red water at the girls, who wore leather and rode horses, etc.

I'm just curious to hear anything that extremist has done?
I'm a curious person, so just wonder any stories that happened to you or a friend, or that you heard would be nice to share.

There's this whole campaign from last year. Lea Michele Exposes Horse-Drawn Carriage Cruelty | PETA.org

Watch the video with audio..then mute it. Muted, it just appears to be horses doing their jobs. With Lea Michele's whiny voice, oh my god, the world is just ending as we know it.

Oh those ignorant PETAs.
I wonder how many people who are actually know things about horses that are a part of PETA. Most of them are probably city people who don't know any better and get pulled in by the TV and internet propaganda.

I'm sorry. I can't read this. All I have to do is hear or read "PETA" and my mind screams.... "IDIOTS" and goes into Avoidance Mode.

Sorry, never had any experience with them concerning horses, but with dogs...oh boy!!! They used to come to the dOg shows (often in parks surrounded by busy highways) and open up the dog crates so the dogs could 'be fRee!" yeah, and get smashed by cars.

I had a dog that was a search and rescue dog, then retired to become a therapy dog. Becasue of her breed, and becasue the kids she worked with loved it so much, we often put costumes on her to work with the kids. She was TOTALLY used to wearing "clothes" becasue of her job. SHe didn't mind it AT ALL, in fact would get excited when the costumes came out, becasue she knew she could 'work' at Getting petted and fussed over. Our therapy group had a booth at a pet expo and a certain male actor who is a big time pETA member (don't know if I can say his name without getting in trouble ) came up, saw my dog in costume surrounded by adoring kids- she was ACTUALLY asleep at the time she was so upset) AND STARTED SCREAMING at me about dog abuse !!! A short time later, the local ASPSCA rep came up and laughed - she knew Brandy and my dog had done some bnefits for them. SHe said this actor had sworn outr a dog abuse complaint about me and she had to check it out. SHe lifted yup my half asleep dog;s sunglasses, asked her if she was abused, got a kiss, then laughed again. End of compaint.

However, if you will allow me, I would like to rant a little on the costume subject. My dog was in costume to get a lauygh or smile from abused/sick kids, and sometimes to work benefits to get donations (get picture with dog). Most people loved it, but we occasionally would get someone saying it was "Horrible to make my dog dress up" As I said before, my dog could care less, bu EVEN if she did, I didn't feel guilty. I fed her, gave her the best care, tons of attention and love, and if I asked her to do something she didn't like for a couple of hours s a week, I DON"T think that is abuse. If I could get all my wants met by drEssing up a few hours a week instead of working full time, I would jump at it! LOL. ANyway, thanks for letting me rant, and PETa MEMBERS ARE defintely WEIRDOS!!

HERE ARE SOME PICTURES - MINE IS THE UPSET dOBE!! Lol

I worked for a carriage company a bit ago and people would go insane if the horses broke out in a sweat on a hot day. They pulled a wagon as a team for 15 minutes every half hour and were always offered water upon return. But that horse is sweating!!!! He must be abused!!!!

After a couple months of that I just ended up walking away. I couldn't handle stupidity anymore. If someone came up with a critical eye, I'd let my coworker handle it because I didn't have the patience to be nice anymore.

The horses in the video looked fine. They are work horses. The stalls didn't appear to be covered in feces like she claimed, and the ramp going up the stairs was padded with rubber for safety. God forbid a horse breaks a sweat these days.

Here's a couple pics of our poor, abused carriage ponies.







So abused, right?
