Exactly. You cannot desensitize to too many stimuli. There is always gonna be something you missed, and that something should maybe still be a problem. I couldn't desensitize my horses, while ground picketed in French Creek Horse Camp (Custer State Park, SD,) to the buffalo that took the road right past our camp.
We did ride to and around and even into a buffalo herd, but I wanted my horses to be wary and to listen to me the whole time.
There is a difference

Thread closed, it has run it's course and beyond.

When one thread has been explored and answered it is time to move on to practical application and hands on guidance.

Rather than searching for more and more answers to the original question until you run into asinine answers.

As to side tracking off topic. I suggest keeping to the original question, and using what will be shorter threads for reference. As opposed to encouraging them to stray off topic and wander.

Here on HF it is possible to have more than 1 thread going at the same time. Epic length threads are difficult to look back on and find a particular item to re-read.

Please stick around, ask something else. LOL
