nah op alter has a beef with bestie matey as they used to do things together once upon a time - probably beat her at a show or nicked her bf or something else just as daft as fell out big time-------as why now
my name is goeslikestink--- as in like an old banger that goes like a bat out of hell as in car-
I also have to agree with those on here who've advised caution and empathy regarding the pile-on. No one knows where an indivudual's personal 'edge' might be, and I don't think any of us would want to feel that we contributed to pushing someone over it.
This is - when all is said and done - an annonymous BB, and we ALL bear personal responsibility for using our own common sense filters for advice that is posted. There are a lot of knowledable, experienced voices here that can provide wise counsel on a variety of subjects, just as there are IRL - but that doesn't absolve any of us from doing our own due diligence and having our own vets, trainers, farriers, etc., see our horses if we feel we have a problem that we can't handle on our own.
Can I pretend to be the missing Graatan just for S&G? Maybe like Ohhhhh no I am of course a vet that graduated suma cum laude, have worked on elephants in africa, polar bears in the artic and whales in the pacific, as well as being the best danged vet you have never heard of!
Its just getting a little boring without any trolls
My name was my maiden name, Michele Macallister, 2 marriages later, its now Cook. In my defense the first one was 10 years ago and lasted a year, the second one just started in Sept. I am hoping this one lasts a little longer.
If not I will just chase down Lex

Reason: Improving spelling
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.
There goes my keyboard warranty!!!!
And my screen name -- I live in the north and ride in the woods. Guess I'm just too boring with screen names. Need to be more creative.

Um, "pile-on"? I don't think there's been a pile-on at all. If the 350+ posts on this thread were tallied, the vast majority of them would not be about Grataan at all. The vast majority are completely OT hi-jinks, plus I think there are actually more posts questioning the veracity of the OP than discussing Grataan. Of the ones that actually mention Grataan allegedly masquerading as a veterinarian, a lot of them expressed disappointment "if true" but not anger, and probably less than 5% actually stated that what she's allegedly doing is wrong.
If you sign up for my seminar, I'll give you a dsicount equal to the cost of your keyboard. We'll have you doing majikal crazy horse tricks in only 6 months, guaranteed - and no special equipment required.
