I am willing to bet that the person says cloven hooved animals have hooves that can spread under their weight. If so, then you should mentinon that horses' hooves spread too, at the heel, which is why you do not put horse shoe nails past the widest part of the hoof. Blow their freakin little minds with that trivia....also, I do have video of a horse eating a jucy apple, i need to download it and will let you know when it is ready.
you are trying to make their little heads explode!

I made the mistake of posting a very reasonable explanation of what was happening in that photo.
Good God I've never encountered so many profoundly stupid people in one place before. And I mean profoundly stupid. Dropped on their head as a child kind of cross-eyed inbred vacuous kind of stupid. Stupid and nuttier than squirrel poo.
There's no shame in being ignorant. A reasonable, mentally healthy person can form the wrong impression, or develop an opinion, not knowing all the facts. And even when presented with the facts, can understand and appreciate having a more informed opinion but still arrive at the same conclusion (based on their personal morals and ethics)
All that is ok, even if I do not agree with that person or group of people. I know lots of smart, informed people who do not approve of working horses in highly urbanized environments. That's ok. It's reasonable even though we can all disagree.
But this - this is just batshit mean, frothy, spittle, ugly cross eyed inbred kind of stupid that is so willfully and intentionally incurable kind of stupid there is just no reasoning with them.
All a person can hope for is that they are finally struck dumb and they don't reproduce.
I made a similar mistake when I posted on a "rescue" site that had a "lucky 200 branded dog that was used by evil people in some game where they shot at dogs"
Uh... no. It was nothing more than a lost field trial hound that had a number on its side - so that a judge could identify the hound from a distance. Its owner was probably looking for it.
Nope - I was a mean fat poopy head who liked to brand dogs - it's so crewel!!!!!
Good Lord - the histrionics from the profoundly stupid were astonishing. It's as if they actually WANTED to believe that there are organized sports in which people use a hot branding iron to brand a number into a dog's hide, and then people line up to shoot the dogs like they're in a shooting gallery. Ping! You got 200 bucks! Ping! you get 35$ bucks! Really?
They willfully refused to believe, even when presented with third party independent evidence of field trialing - in which a judge watches hounds work at a distance, and owners put removable or semi permanent marks on their dogs so the judge can identify them.
Nope - that does not exist - only the shooting gallery explanation makes sense - and oh by the way send money to this address to save this dog from the shooters and the group is going to go down there and rough up the people who brand their dogs and shoot them for money. WTF?
They didn't have the dog. It was a dog in a shelter and its owners likely reclaimed it. It wasn't branded - a number had been painted on it - it will grow out. And the "nonprofit" who said they had the dog and were fundraising for it wasn't a real nonprofit. And they never went down "there" to beat anyone up. But I'm sure they laughed all the way to the bank.
There are a LOT of really creepy, stupid people with God only knows what sort of mental disorder - who really WANT to believe the absolute craziest, most implausible stories. And who willfully refuse to recognize the truth even when it's staring them in the face. Maybe a shrink can tell us the name of that disorder, if it is even recognized. Is terminal stupidity a disorder?
Just avoid them - and for God's sake don't give money to them or forward their lying posts or pleas to other people. They're just whackjobs.

I did the same thing -- posted rationally and politely that the picture might be showing something else altogether. Didn't belittle their POV or call them out, just stated facts about how some horses (including mine) can make one helluva mess when they eat something juicy.
Pfft. Willfully ignorant and mean-spirited zealots. I seriously doubt they are in it to "save" horses. Rather, they're feeding their own need for bombast and attention.
