    Courtesy is when you do something nice you would do regardless of the recipient's gender. Benevolent sexism is when you do something nice *because the recipient is a woman* and you think women...

    This is ridiculous. You want to be "friends" because you find it flattering when he hits on you. There's nothing inherently wrong with having a flirty vibe with someone unavailable, but once you've...

    I love dogs, but I'm afraid I don't sympathize here. It sounds like you have very specific rules/commands for your dogs: one will always be up on the couch staring at you and you should ignore it,...

    So I've avoided weighing in on this because everyone else has done such a nice job, but I feel obliged to chime in and urge you to ignore Trakehner. No, her being a girl does not give her a right to...

    I just don't understand the mentality of some of the breeders posting here. It's such a sense of entitlement - how dare anyone go shop somewhere else when I have horses here. I think that if you...

    I'm not a breeder, but I've lurked in this forum for ages and I just have to say something here. It seems like many the pro-brag people just refuse to grasp the issue. The problem is NOT that...

    I just wanted to point out that while it might be alright to explain to a clinician that you don't want them to get on your horse, it's going to be a lot more difficult to tell them that you don't...

    The people offering to pay $3500 for her on this thread have all been upfront about wanting her to pass a vet first- something you should have insisted on as well, if this was not a rescue but rather...

    I second Wanderlust- you may not know Jeff Ayers, but I would venture that the vast majority of the hunter world does. The horse may not have been well known before this, but I bet he is now that...

    But Pwynn, how do you decide what a hard rub is and what a soft rub is? How does a standard deduction deal with a slightly close distance vs. a much deeper one? The reason standard deductions work...
