    If you start any post you are going to get readers opinions.
    Start a post with MY FOUNDATION IS BEING PUT TO THE TEST and you are going to get people commenting on the foundation.
    I am sure everyone is fine with any post praising her but if someone doesn't agree then they are up in arms.
    Spirithorse threatens other posters, she calls them names while we can not disagree with her handling of the horses.. Interesting how people feel entitled to their opinion and no one can challenge that???

    Most vets are animal lovers, they didn't get into that field just for the money, they usually love animals and want to make a living working with them.
    How does a vet approach a horse threateningly?? Do they puff themselves up and charge at the horse?? Do they wave their arms in the air to frighten the horse??
    Should they bow to the horse and offer a greeting?? Should they stand back and get the horse use to their presence??

    My vets, our herd vets just walk into the barn, the horse is in cross ties and he puts his bag on the bench and talks to us about what is the problem. Then he just walks up to the horse and does what is necessary.
    And if it involves bright light, plates between his legs or standing on one it makes no difference. The horse just accepts because that is the way of things. If it involves tubing so be it. The bottom line is THE HORSE JUST ACCEPTS

    Someone should start a post on how a GOOD vet should approach a horse?? Great topic
