    First of all, I do not know why you all assume that it was a public message that made me feel this way...it wasn't, it was a private message.

    Secondly, I am fully aware that a horse is not a small house pet.

    Third, I obviously know that the behavior is dangerous, hence I am seeking advice and help. I am also fully aware that the bond comes from respect, and while I do care about the eventual bond, right now I want to be able to safely and effectively handle this horse, or any other that may cross my path that could be a potential danger to myself, others, or itself.

    Fourth, I have thicker skin than any of you will ever know...when your daughter is fight against cancer and fighting for her life, you have nothing but thick skin...its the only way you can survive as a mother.

    But like I said in the first post I have received a lot of constructive help on this forum and other places and people, and I am pleased to say that with a stud chain and her "thinking" about pulling some behaviors, me correcting, and longing her hard, we actually got somewhere today.

    Who would have thought a "vent" about a very rude private message would have caused so many people to get offended...and I'm the thin-skinned one?

    Well don't be venting on the open forum about a PM, report it to the mods - how are we to know what was sent to you in a PM?? Sheesh.

    Why did you bring a vent about a private message to the very public board? If you had an issue with it, you could have reported it just like any other post on the forum. Instead, you post a 'poor me' rant.

    Your insinuations that you're better than everyone else also haven't gone unnoticed. You might want to tone that down a bit.

    You can report a rude private message.
    Too bad that someone felt the need to send you a rude private message.
    I can see why you are venting, you were getting some good feedback in the open part of the forum, so there was no need for someone to be nasty in private.
    But of course we did not know that.

    Heck, we don't even know if the message WAS rude or just taken that way. If I get a PM that I don't like the tone of, I ignore it. Simple problems, simple solutions.

    Gotta say I agree here. If you have a beef with a private message, you can report it to the moderators. If you had started this thread acknowledgeing that your need to rant, and this IS a rant, if based on a Private Message, then all these other folks would not feel as if you were targeting them with your complaints, and thus feel the need to defend themselves and this forum.

    I am thinking it best to close this thread. I do encourage the OP to share with moderating anything that she feels crosses the line of forum ettiquete, and I wish her the very best with the horse, and hoping that her daughter gets great medical care and returns to health.
