    Thanks guys! A lot friendlier here than the first forum I posted in! Wow, people were rude. Is that common on here? I lost interest right away.

    Depending on what you post and how you handle constructive criticism it can be rough for a little while but totally worth it! I'm not quite Iowa but I'm in Illinois across from Clinton, ia!

    I used to drive to QC when I worked for Deere some years ago! These guys in the forum were totally not accepting any different views, even though I supplied research and real examples. Then just started attacking each part of my statements. Another said the conversation had been going on before and essentially I wasn't welcome. Pretty offensive but I chalked it up to a couple rude control freaks and exited after telling them they were just being rude and argumentative.

    I go the impression this is a place for power freaks with nothing better to do than argue with people hang out!

    I get enough of that at work, don't need it in my private life! I have 42 years of horse ownership, living with and raising horses on a daily basis since age 7, certified Master Equine Manager through our university which includes a vet school/ hospital. I'm engaged in a farrier group that includes a couple international hall of fame vets/ farriers and specializes in corrective shoeing, was in pre-med for vet school myself. Spent a lot of time, daily for years, then weekly for a few more, observing and working with trainers, worked in horse rescue for a few years handling traumatized and basically "wild" horses to transport them.

    The Master Equine program is often available on line. We will be dissecting a horse at the vet school in January (on campus of course). The most recent course was lameness and disease and was totally online with live vet and farrier instructors. I highly recommend it!
