Yep will have to agree with this 110% if not more.

Rescues are just about as bad too.

It's great you saved a horse. but I wont be giving parelli the credit here, you did all the work. Anyone can retrain a horse, having the right set of skills, and understanding the horse is the main factor to sucess. Maybe I should be making my own program.

I can't support anyone that works with the Humane Society.
I agree 100% with this, but for different reasons. You think with all their funding the would have better people running the place. I volunteer at a cat shelter. We have very little funding compared to the Humane Society, but we have a much greater rate of placing cats in permenant homes. We dont turn it into a pitty party.

I got a letter in the mail about proposing an antiteathering law. Hello- we teather our pets on occasion, we dont have a fence (when they want to go out but no one can walk them at the time). Should we instead let them run wild, possibly being hit by a car or have an accidental breeding??

I believe the humane society runs the SPCA's? am I wrong?? They took in some of our cats that were placed in a home, sent their way because the owners didnt want them anymore. They put the cats down on the spot, instead of calling us.

I'll pick ASPCA or the "Humane" Society over PETA anyday.

SillyBunny-If my state/town/city did that a lot of dogs would be road kill. I actually think we need a pro-tether law here. I whacked off my passenger mirror trying to avoid two dogs running lose in front of their home.

I'm glad the horse found a new owner no matter if a circus clown was training him to be in the Kentucky Derby. : )

That would be REALLY nice right about now! I hate feeling like all parelli followers apparently know nothing.

It's also interesting how people will respond to a thread that could be hijacked...and they do hijack it....but they don't respond to a topic that was meant to be positive....only negativity comes from certain's pretty telling.

This forum has seemed very negitive lately and its really sad. And im not talking about only the NH section but thats where im seeing it the most. This section was suppose to be following NH and who agree to it... not just bashing!

Exactly. This section was designed for those who are interersted in NH or who support it, NOT for those people who have nothing better to do than go around bashing NH students.
