    Have a great day:)

    Actually I agree with AlbertaHighCountry. If anything Spirithorse, your attitude is creating more PP dislike in me and several others that I chat with off the forum.

    I'm not surprised you agree with AlbertaHighCountry. This thread was posted for positive purposes, not for the intention of me being told I live in a fantasy world.

    Ok...to be honest I looked at this thread because I saw "saved another horse" in the title not PP.....to be honest im not even a PP fan...I like CA better...BUT I do think after reading everything that everyone needs to chill out...We don't need preaching...we don't need bashing....we don't need realism or fantasy....

    The main point is that a horse found a good home....and I think it would be nice to keep updated on the horses progress....whatever the program may be....

    Keep us posted! :)

    Why don't you support the Humane Society?

    Just wondering. XD
    I think that they poke thier noses were they don't belong and we need a national organization for animal rights like we need a bad case of boils. Local humane societies are somewhat more efficient and flexible. They still are annoying and preachy about things they really don't understand but at least they lack the power to usurp my right to do as I wish with my private property (horses).

    Great post!


    It sounds like this horse is having back issues that no one managed to locate. (OP you said this yourself.) Which has nothing to do with PP or any other trainer. I am glad someone is willing to do the necessary medical stuff to determine what is wrong with this horse and hopefully it will quickly be back to its wonderful previous self again. (As you stated OP, this horse was a successful show horse before.)

    I am very happy to hear from people with good old common sense. Proper care and dedication are what this horse seems to need just as you mentioned Alwaysbehind..not necessarily a certain type of person with a certain type of belief. I think anyone with a good head on their shoulders and a heart can make a difference in the world, even if it's just one horse at a time. We need less followers and more leaders. That's why we're born with great minds, right? To think for ourselves?

    I take it you have had a run in or two with the ASPCA?

    I think the humane society is great, underfunded and undermanned, but a necessary installation to protect animals from cruel human nature. Usually the only ones that seem to have a problem with it are the ones that it serves to bring to justice, property or not.

    I agree that the PP preaching is totally unnecessary(and leads to more PP soreness and bashing), but I am glad the horse will be given a chance. Though the fact that the person taking it in is a Parelli follower is totally irrelevant. Any good horseman could work wonders with this horse no matter whose program they are running.

    I have had no real run ins with them but I have spoken with people that work and volunteer at the local humane society and they are the kind of bleeding hearts that do more harm than good.

    Ahhh, I see and I won't argue with that one bit, I agree.
