Quote from "Our three main demands for horses" page....
Horses are to be treated just as humanely, dignified and respectful as a human should be treated who has a special handicap which makes it impossible to tell the difference between him or her and a horse.
LMAO! Did you see the FAQs page? It talks about women riding geldings - apparently women who ride geldings are insecure and sexually messed up so they feel the need to dominate an animal who has been sexually mutiliated.
That is hilarious because the first thought in my mind also was the neuticals (however you spell it) . But that's not good enough because when you geld, you're depriving males of their natural hormones.
But the website argues that performing a vasectomy is ok. With the vasectomy, stallions are still free to breed with a willing female mate, but she just doesn't get pregnant. And stallions should never be deprived of their breeding rights, and expressing their natural sexual tendencies............according to the website.
Yeah, I can imagine the problems that would cause (infections, broken legs, horses running through fences)
You're psychic Caff....this is the same person who started that hokey website:
(MarkSchmid) am an Asperger-autist and the founder of the Organization for Animal Dignity. Sometimes I work almost full-time voluntarily and without a salary as an author, programmer and webpublisher for the Organization for Animal Dignity. This is only possible because currently I receive a disability pension. Perhaps due to my Asperger-autism I have a special understanding of and relationship to animals, with which I get along better than with most humans.
AV2, didn't you just get a stallion you plan on keeping intact?
You jump in the saddle,
Hold onto the bridle!
Jump in the line!
Why do you insult women who ride on geldings? Is it because you just can't seem to score (get a woman) or what?]
Women who ride create, with the egoistic satisfaction of their gender-specific need or their need founded in their sexuality to ride, a lot of totally unnecessary suffering, totally unnecessary, severe bodily mutilations and totally unnecessary degrading of highly developed mammals; horses. Other "animal protection" organizations do nothing against it, because they are dominated mostly by women, a few cowardly and vain men and their common interests. That's why someone else, someone who is more dedicated to the cause must make these mass, totally unnecessary severe offenses against animals here among us, directly in front of our own door, a subject. This someone is us, the Organization for Animal Dignity.
How did they get an .org website........they also claim they don't even have a working fax machine lol
This reminds me of when a friend posted photos of his wife's free lease horse on his Facebook page, and some "friend" of his started a rant about how it's wrong to ride horses for pleasure. Using them for work is OK, but not for the rider's enjoyment. They are no longer "friends".
My response was that if people didn't ride horses, they'd probably be extinct.
But this guy is clearly a wacko. I loved his recreation of his conversation with Monty Roberts.
