Solon I completely agree with you.

If that was any of your horses on her pointless blog, you would not appreciate it.
And I also agree with Kate that this Fugly girl has way too much time on her hands.

If my horse was on that blog, I would turn myself into the police!

EDIT: And I will add, for the final time, what she is doing is not illegal! Please actually read these posts before you continuously argue the same, uneducated point. She is not picking on the horses and what she is doing is perfectly legal. Those idiots post them up on the internet, so they are fair game.

I can see why she goes after the breeders. I can see why she goes after people who abuse their horses. The other stuff, not so much.

She gets the pictures sent to her. People go through Craigslist ads, dreamhorse ads and websites to find pictures and send them to her.
I actually did post my pictures on her forum. Everyone had nice things to say about Spider. It was constructive critique that wasn't mean at all. Then again, he's a nice horse. If you are going to post pictures of your horse, make it look nice.

My main concern about legality is copyright laws. If someone takes a copyrighted photo off of a web site and posts it on her site without permission or a link to the site, that is illegal.
I'm sorry if I seem stupid, I don't visit the site. That's why I asked where the photos come from.
I know many people enjoy FHOTD and that there is a wealth of information for anyone wanting to learn more about conformation. Where the photos come from is my problem with it and a little thing called PERMISSION.

This has nothing to do with the current debate...but the story she posted today just burned me. I mean seriously, what the heck? Leave the old boy in peace!

I read that too Sara, I had heard it on the news though. I understand it completely My father has lived on the same farm for I don't know how many years. They are building million dollar homes all around him. His new "neighbors" turn him in at the drop of a hat for every little thing.

I also want to write a retraction about FHOTD. I visited the site and its message board. The critique section is much like ours. I guess I expected random photos of unsuspecting horses being verbally torn to shreds. The posts are a bit adult in their language but to each their own.
Mea culpa, Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!

I'd never heard of FHOTD until I ran across this thread, and before I posted an opinion, I decided I would spend a few days reading through her blog....and I've come to the conclusion that while she may be crude and rude sometimes, she is downright honest, and that is SO refreshing to me. I bawled my eyes out while watching the video about Naysa, the horse rescued in Louisiana last summer.
She is also really hilarious, I was sitting on the couch wiping tears away I was laughing so hard, and then my husband, curious as to why I was dying laughing, sat down and read with me, and he's not a horse person....but he totally understood the points she had about everything....

I feel this topic needs to be locked. Sorry to any who have enjoyed posting here.
I finally went to the site and discovered they do have a message board. I read through many threads and never did I see a bad word said about this forum. I think we owe them the same respect.
