    Pinkbow, I've been out back doing pm chores, and can see what's happening here.... Please don't be discouraged by the responses - this truly is a friendly forum, and as there are so many horse people here (from all over the world!) who are highly knowledgeable- many thought that you were asking the question for yourself, and it struck an instant 'safety chord'.... :)

    There is no such thing as a stupid question - especially in the horse world! :)

    Okay firstly my question was merely a question. Get your panties out of a bunch and off your high horse.
    Second where did you make the assumption that I'm a barrel racer? You know what happens when you ASSume. You make an a$$ out of yourself.
    I think I'm done here dealing with snot kids.

    I will keep my reply simple...No.

    I wouldn't even do that for a mini. Those little suckers aren't always harmless.
    Well, maybe for a mini foal about 12" tall, if Mom was out of the way.

    Op-you need to stop being a snot. Truly. THere are a few here who will mollycoddle the foolishness but not many. I for one think you started this thread just to be able to get snarky. Sure happened in an instant. I am also done dealing with snot kids.

    Foal
    I was just asking a question... I'm not here to start crap with people. I'm here to learn more about horses. But if people are going to be rude about my questions, I'll bite back.

    Foal
    For the record, I do all kinds of things that people say I shouldn't. Ride in tennis shoes. Let my horse kiss people (if they ask). I lay down on my foal after I've got him down and relaxed. Thing is, he's MY horse lol. I handle him daily, and he trusts me absolutely. It's still no guarantee that I won't get hurt, I'm just not really worried it'll happen, and if it does, it's my own fault. If the person in question has no experience with the particular horse, they absolutely should not do it. If you trust the horse, fine, but as I said earlier, if you kneel before a standing horse, you're asking to be dominated. Not to mention that even a foal can seriously injure a big human. With enough time and patience, you can teach a horse to do just about anything you want. Except feed and water its' self lol.

    But no one was rude. That's the issue here.

    Wow, what a brat! No one here is psychic - you didn't say you were asking for someone else. In fact, you worded it like you were asking for yourself. So don't get snarky about people's responses. In fact, you were downright rude.

    Good grief, you're supposed to be at least 13 years old to join this forum - I know kids way younger than that with more maturity and manners than you've just displayed.
