Sensitive Topic: FHOTD

Etiquette: I strongly feel that this topic is for strict conversation and viewing other peoples sides. I don't want any arguments to start. Remember, everyone has the right to their own opinions and don't feel you are being attacked or anything....

I have taken time to view the Fugly Horse Of The Day blog and I don't necessarily agree OR disagree with it. I honestly don't care much for the blog itself and the person who writes it. If you feel I am out of line or something, feel free to tell me so.

I think that you truly have to be very pessimistic to actually burrow into people's business and pick at things you know hardly anything about. I'm not trying to be mean or judgemental. Simply how I feel.

I try to stay out of the whole good breeding, bad breeding thing. But...I will have more to say later.

How do you guys feel about this stuff?

What gives her a right to run down other peoples horses and use their pictures without their permission. Does she know that it's illegal?

And noticed how she never has anything bad to say about her friends horses. Hmm...what's with that.

I truly think that this girl has no life what so ever and has serious confidence issues to feel that she needs to run everyone else down to make her self feel better. Well I guess I have to say I hope one day she grows up.

I don't really know much about it, but after looking at that I voted no. What an absolute arse of a woman, I bet her horses are "fuglier" than those! Where does she get her facts from? Anyone could get a picture of some random horse and make fun of it :roll: And the pic of some horses by a car she says "my money is on they havent seen a farrier for a while", their feel don't look ridiculously long and they don't look starved I honestly can't imagine how crap her life must be to sit and do that! :o

Well all I can say is the person is picking on the wrong subject.
Ridaculing these horses when its not there fault, the horses didnt ask to be born with faults to there comformation, if this person is out to make a point she should be complaining more about the people that created the horse not the horse itself. Talk about kicking them when they are down .

The site is mindless, I didnt look at it for more than a minute.

I voted yes. Only because there was no choice for "sometimes".
She has valid points - and I think her point of it all is that people should stop breeding these poor horses that are going to end up at auction... and to stop over breeding. She is trying to show how there are these stupid people that neglect their horses, lie about the horses they are selling & such.

It isnt that she doesnt care about the horses or is trying to directly insult the horse. She knows its not the horses fault that he is deformed, poor conformation or whatever.

Although sometimes I think she can be harsh. She doesnt sugar coat things.

That is what she is getting at. :roll:

Read it... she is complaining about the breeders who breed poor quality horses.

You do realize that the more breeders that keep having their mares and stallions spitting out foal after foal... the more horses that will end up in slaughter, right?

Like Kim Angel, I put yes, because there was no sometimes. Alot of what she writes is true, she is only trying to point out how people are breeding from completely unsuitable mares and stallions, she isn't complaining about the horses, she is saying that there are many people out there who think their horses are good enough to breed, when in fact their not!
