    Me too, that was a little bit of a mindwarp from this thread.

    Can I out my sister? Her screenname is "Rescuepony"... while we do have a rescue, she rides a 17 hand Percheron/Morgan cross ... far from a pony!

    Oh man, this is good. Do you think we'll get a response from She Whose Pants Are On Fire?
    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    I'm a chick. The "Ernie" comes from a joke in college, when someone tried to insult me by saying I looked like Ernest Bourgnine in drag.

    Another confession: I don't actually look like Ernest Bourgnine in drag.

    I do, however, have a big red rescue OTTB and an HR job in the horse world. I don't have the Appy anymore, though- he's now a therapy horse for a very nice family. My favourite colour is vodka, and I like rainy days, the number 8, and black licorice.

    There- my conscience is clean.

    Not likely. From what I've seen with others, liars that live in such a manner will usually just keep on keeping on or just change up their game when confronted or outed.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have,
    at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    And I am not in the least bit moody, although I AM a doctor, just not an MD. I am a PhD. And truthfully, as hard as I had to work to get that degree, it does rather torque me to have someone misrepresent themselves with it. I do understand the desire to represent oneself as a little different online, though. It's sad, but understandable when your life isn't that interesting.

    I have enjoyed many of Grataans posts. I'm still not sure how I feel about this "outing".

    Thank you! I also really like my geese, they are funnier than most people I know and are always honest. Unlike the ducks who are always up to something.

    I must confess to identity theft. I'm not Trevelyan - he died in 2005. And I'm not really a middle aged weenie rider - I'm actually a majikal horse trainer who knows how to turn a perfectly dead quiet OTTB into a fire breathing, herdbound, nutcase in 3 years or less. And for the low price of just $199.95 I can teach you how to do the same.

    To seriously address the original subject of this thread. You can read this as advice, a warning, or an explanation. I'm not a lawyer, nor do I pretend to be one in real life or on the internet - but 11 years of working for big law firms has taught me this regarding allegations of a serious nature - like masquerading as a licensed professional. Whether innocent or guilty, say nothing until you've spoken with your attorney.

    It also can mean "to speak in a rambling manner". I suppose that could mean drivel. I prefer the wandering connotation...but I'm still Spartacus.

    OK here's my issue with this: Suppose a newbie had come on coth and saw that Grataan was a vet. And had PMed her for advice on how to treat a horse. We don't know what is said or recommended in such a situation. A new horse owner might think that a "vet" on a BB gives sound advice. And might follow it. Right or wrong.

    So I think OP did the right thing. She first tried to talk to Grataan. Grataan got angry and jumped her at a show. (According to what I was told by OP.) Next was this thread, and OP tried not to put the name out on the thread, but others wanted that done. I PMed and got the name and info. If it had been in my area, I'd have checked out the vet boards website to see if she is/was a vet here.

    OP said many nice things about Grataan in her PM to me. But she said that Grataan should not be holding herself out as a vet. I agree. I don't remember what the psychological syndrome is, our great forensic vet is deceased or I'd have called him, but I do know that it's wrong to hold herself out as a vet. I understand she was a good vet tech.
