I am very sorry that the OP is leaving. IDK about you but it pains me when somebody gets hurt bc they are new to horses and bought the wrong one, or they made a mistake and paid big for it. I can't watch Animal Planets program, "Animal Cops" anymore or watch graphic injury photos bc of accidents anymore either. I don't abuse or practice neglect and it pains me to see animals hurt bc of human stupidity.
So...I guess I believe that there ARE people who buy a horse and shouldn't own one, or at least they shouldn't own the one that they just bought.
I quit my hobby bc people were getting more and more sloppy about the training of their horses at both local and National CW Reenactments and at 55yo, I just didn't want to get hurt by somebody else's horse.
So, YES, I have been and will continue to express my opinion about this, though I hope that I have been civil in my responses.
I will also express my opinion about women who shop with their sons and the son's father, but bring their boys into the women's RR.
I will continue to respond to uncalled for in-person rudeness, and have told many other misbehaving children "no" when their parents don't.
Even with some rude behavior here, I found other forums with horseowners much nastier and have quit those. I don't have I'Net at home and have gotten busier with my job--YEA!!!--so I'm not here as much as I used to be. It's good to take a vacation from ANYTHING, so I hope the OP will come back to us. I've made some good "penpals" here. =D

The thing is, when you get to a certain point here you have seen the same question over and over again by different people and the response will be the same every time, you get impatient with the understanding and cut right to the chase. As though every one should know the answer already because you've repeated yourself a thousand other times in different posts.

But they don't. The first person who asked got compassion. The 57th person who asked got told the answer with a touch of sarcasm and impatience.




This cracked me up because I immediately thought these few things:

'Have you used a snaffle?'

'Does your saddle fit?'

'Call your vet,'

'When was the last time his teeth were done?'

'Get a new farrier!'

'Sorry only a vet can tell you if your mare is pregnant!'

'Please slow down and use grammar and spell check!'

The "my mare might be preggo....."ones set me off the worst. Sorry, but all the thread starter has to do is a simple search....they are warned prior to posting and STILL don't get it.....those and the words "rescued...." and "abused...poor baby...." Make the hair stand up on the back of my neck.

Sorry for the OP-I even went back and looked at threads she had started and saw nothing rude at all, so who knows.......some folks have thicker skin than others I suppose.......

And I will eat all of the veggies. YUM!

** DISCLAIMER: I would like to point out that the fact I have changed my signature has nothing to do with this thread**

That's 100% right. Quite frequently though someone will post a brilliant answer, really spend time doing it to a long repeated question. I think Kayty did that maybe 2 months ago in a thread when the OP was getting bent out of shape. I am sure there's many more than that too, it's just the one that stuck out in my mind.

Mods, what do you think about the idea of having a sticky in the training, and health sections for truly brilliant advise?
People could use the report function to report an excellent post to you, you could consider it and add it to the best advise thread if you think it's good enough?
I am suggesting it that way, so the thread doesn't become unreadable with people adding mediocre advise.

please don't go adding screen names to the amusing stereotypes that have been mentioned. let's use our own imaginations, without getting personal, ne?

this has always been the case; that anyone can request that a particularly "sage" bit of advice be stickied. We have to be fairly picky about what gets stickied, or you will end up with every sub-forum having a huge line of stickies being in your face every time you want to see what NEW has been put up. And, we do not need to discourage new members from asking the same questions. it's a forum; we need fodder for discussion and it's going to repeat itself, can't be avoided without killing the whole thing.

Agreed. Stickies should be by consensus.

No offense meant, he was joking with me, so I was joking back.

I just want to throw one thing out there for everyone's consideration regarding the above comment from Copperhead that was quoted by Muppetgirl.

Do any of us ever consider that the newbie who asks a question for the umpteenth time may ask it so they can join in and start becoming an active member of the community? To me this is a place for discussion, not just to read what was previously written. If it were more like the latter, then it would be more like a "horse-a-pedia". Because how many NEW questions are there really?

Please believe me, I'm more for doing some research before I just ask someone for the answer to the test. But I think questions, even if they've been asked and answered a million times before before, are the way our members get to know each other and become part of the community.

If that is the case, then all they have to say is "I have searched and read....." or something to that effect. It at least makes it seem like they tried, IMO. I treat those much differently. There are better ways of getting to know the community than asking "Is my horse Preggo" for the 500th time. JMHO.
