Too late, damage appears to be already done!

Not the best idea, but that foal is really calm. Didn't try to get away from the man after either. To each their own I guess.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

The guy looks drunk to me, and I don't think it's a good idea, but baby wasn't hurt and he seemed to be curious about the whole "game". However if he's doing it every day - then hmmmmmmmmmm...... helmet not gonna help much when that baby will grow up.

It was the guys attitude I found offensive. He seemed to be just making fun of the horse.

I've done the same with a dog, but it was in genuine fun and appreciation of my dog. To me, it seemed the attitude of the people was to just make a mockery of the horse.

I mean, maybe no big deal, but that's how I saw it.

didn't really bother me. kind of funny really. the filly did not seem too put out about it and she is certainly learning to be handled in different ways.

Drunk people dont get hurt because they are normally relaxed.

I dont really think it is fair to say that this man is drunk. There is no way to tell if he is or not and saying that he is means passing unfair judgement. Someone said drunk/Russian = Same thing. That is definately stereotyping someone. Its like saying all blondes are dumb. Considering that there is possibly Russians/Russian decendants on this forum, I think this comment was rude and distasteful.

It's also been made clear that I was joking, as is everyone else.

I'm so busy, I don't know if I've found a rope... or lost my horse...

Ya, I think the drunk comment was all in fun and made because the guy was acting so goofy.
