    I knew someone who bred a blue roan/mearle( sorry my dog terms arent that great) to another of the same kind.. and wound up with a litter of deaf and blind dogs.. she didnt understand you couldnt breed the 2 together and she wondered why they were all blind and deaf.. they brought them into the vet because they couldnt find the food she put infont of them and she was worried.. the vet almost had a heart attack
    What happened to the poor dogs????

    Im not exactly sure.. the vet explained to her that what she did was wrong and breeding 2 what she considered genetic faults when you look at it... is a no no and she could have had a litter worse off than deaf and blind.. Im not sure what she did with them.. as she didn't really have the "money" to do much with them..( why did she breed them then? ) Im hoping she didnt do something drastic with them, as the vet said she would have a hard time rehoming them.. and she didnt want to keep them

    Like one poster already said: "when other people think they know your horse better then you do (and tell you what to do)". I have no problem what so ever when people offer help (any kind, say for loading the horse) though. I always appreciate that.

    I also very much dislike snobbish horse people and those who think their discipline is the only way to go and everything else is a garbage.

    I didn't know about breeding merle colored dogs either.
    You have a 25% chance if you breed two merles (assuming they are heterozygous) to get a homozygous merle. If you get a "double merle" there is a possibility they will have eye or hearing problems, not necessarily be blind or deaf. So its not deadly and not necessarily even going to lead to problems.

    Not horse related but I can't stand it when I go to the grocery store and people are trying to steer their cart while talking on the cell phone. That and when people are blocking an entire isle, completely oblivious that there are other customers that would like to get through.

    Yes...I just got back home from the grocery store.

    I do the "impatient ignorant cow" stare when people block the aisle.. drives me up the wall. I hate grocery shopping,I like to fly around as quickly as possible and get out of the place.. and if anybody stands in my way.. they get THAT look.

    I am the same exact way. I can't stand grocery shopping and I do it as fast as I can.

    Pedigree snobs, bloodlines are not everything nor will be. I do have 2 well bred horses but I get sick of seeing people saying you have to buy something well bred, even if that person just wants a happy trail pony. Or bashing a whole bloodline because a bad experience with one horse. I don't really favor my moms mare and she's difficult to run, but hey my colt is also related to her.

    I just experienced this today. Someone took my equipment and tied up their little dog in it.. which further spooked my horse and I was literally laying on his neck while he was jumping in place. Seriously.. leave the **** dogs at home or leave them in a stall.

    Also, people who stick beginners on horses and then have the nerve to tell me to "not run into them" yeah.. like I'm literally driving my horse into yours because it's SO much fun for both of us. Put them on the lunge line or wait till no one is there. I can't keep stopping my horse or making him turn tightly.

    No cantering today makes me very sad :( It would have been a really nice break and stretch for both of us. Neither of us could relax today but a good ride none the less.
