^^ Tian, I can give you an example. I was asked plenty of times how can I manage to keep horses because they are so expensive. How come that could be a stupid question? People don't know the prices, and even keeping a dog or cat is not very cheap (if you buy good quality food, give all shots, etc.). In fact if you keep a horse in fancy facility around here you better be rich. So the question is perfectly valid IMHO.
BTW, I call anything under 14'2 a pony. Including mini. Even though I know the difference. Simply because I don't see the point why I have to exact: I don't own one, have no plans of owning, and don't really care for them.. Does that make me stupid or not educated? I don't think so, frankly.
I DO see when someone with no knowledge makes indeed a stupid statement. Yeah, that's something different. But not a question.
