    Agree, especially the pro-slaughter folks snarking on people for being "too vigilant". Seriously?
  2. Oh my goodness, it just sunk it that you are...

    Oh my goodness, it just sunk it that you are retraining a Standardbred to ride. GOOD FOR YOU! You should be so proud of yourself. He is really cute.

    roseymare, well that is THE reason I hear from the pro-slaughter people for being for slaughter. "It solves the homeless horse problem". Can't think of another that has ever been openly stated.

    Agree about letting him trot to a cross rail and canter away. Gets them away from being worried about the departure aids and you can concentrate on a nice canter.

    You look great, but he seems...

    It has bearing because of the bias of those who are for horse slaughter that the homeless horse problem will be solved if the horses are sent to slaughter. Why bother with rescues and rehoming, they...

    Hmm, don't I recognize some names of the posters who are snarking here about CANTER as also being pro-slaughter posters?

    Mistyblue, It was easy to look up the Connecticut property tax laws, and it appears from this that the ag exemption for horses is already very limited. How does the status of horses affect this as...

    All for it. Great for beginners, and especially adult beginners who tend to be more about quality than quantity (height) :)

    Yes leaf, but I was sucked in for a while with the anti-HSUS talking points. Then I researched and realized what a disservice the anti-HSUS people were doing to animal cruelty reform.

    Glad to take the following challenge presented by one of the anti-HSUS people above: You know Bluey I've wondered about the substance of your last sentence myself. Are the posters that defend HSUS so...

    Michael Vick = bad

    HSUS = don't have to agree 100%

    A sign of intelligence is the ability to deal with conflicting ideas.

    Totally agree with Red Barn. I did my research too, and all those talking points of the anti-HSUS folks can be traced to the industry-led anti-HSUS groups that stand to lose with reform. Big ag for...

    Thank you for speaking out HPFarmette!

    There are a very vocal few that fervently spread the talking points of anti-HSUS industry-led advocacy groups.

    You HSUS-haters do realize that while you are here Donalding to each other, you have lost everyone else's interest?

    Victorious, someone on the CotH forums posted about using a platform on rollers to help with hooking up. When unhooking, she backed it up to the platform (raised with the three point) and lowered it...

    YAY! HSUS investigators score again. Saw the post here earlier on their work with Tennessee Walker Horse soring. And now this against dog fighting:

    Are you pulling with an ATV? I use a tractor with a three point hitch. The hydraulics can be used to control the height of the groomer.
