    There is this bored person an another forum. Not-anyone-here...Really! Honest!
    She just joined and the three topics that she has started have been...

    Post 1) Less than perfect horses in x breed should have their registration papers yanked and their offspring not be registered. 120 posts
    Post 2) Halter horses and all of the worst alleged training methods true or not. 175 posts.
    3)A stalking post trying to track down a horse her mother sold (Hope she doesn't break in and boil the new owners rabbit while they are at work)


    What other posts do I have to look forward to in the future from this little forum goblin, orc oh what do they call those little critters that start a thread and sit back and watch the others argue?

    Topics that off the top of my head which will start a pages long thread are

    Parellii or any other natural horsemanship du jour.
    Rollkur
    Horse slaughter
    Barefoot trimming
    Gaited horses and some methods to enhance their step.



    I know there are more help me make a list of them if you are inclined.
    I would be very grateful for the help.

    I'm totally confused. Are these trainwreck topics on Chronicle of the Horse Forums? If so, why haven't I seen them? I *love* a good train wreck as long as I'm not riding the train or at least up near the engine.

    Oh, OK. Since I started typing my reply OP has changed to say this is on another forum.

    Well, honey, that's why I am on COTH where the ratio of intelligent to silly is reasonably high and I can rely on some actually knowledgable people coming out of the woodwork to answer real specific questions I pose.

    My only advice: if you find yourself on a forum dominated by newbies, kiddies, and backyard disasters, or people debating the very basics that most of us have agree to disagree on: leave that forum.

    BTW, warmbloods need to pass an inspection before being entered in the appropriate registry. These inspections are perhaps more rigorous for the European studbooks than some of the North American registries like CWB or Canadian Sport Horse. So the idea is not at all far fetched. It also has increased the performance of those breeds immensely.

    Anyhow, for what it's worth, I think *this* thread by a brand new member (or perhaps an alter) is a good example of a potential trainwreck because it is starting out new poster, personal grudge, etc. Just saying.

      Actually no.
      It is a breed forum of which I was referring.
      I remember sometime years back someone here had posted a list of subjects guaranteed to start a fight and I thought they might be kind enough to either list them or post a link.

          Oh, local FB pages can go off the charts on all kinds of topics! As soon as you go beyond "gee your horse has a pretty tail," depending on the phase of the moon or whatever, you can get someone blowing up.

            It is a facebook forum as a matter of fact.

              Snooze for 30 days is a wonderful wonderful feature.

              FB exists primarily to enable the bored and argumentative to stir the pot.

              Just stop following the forum.

              I like snooze because usually after a month whatever was bothering you has faded out and you have forgotten who all these people are.

                Draw reins are my personal favorite drama subject. Mostly because they’re basically standard equipment for my discipline haha.

                  I once compiled a list of the longest threads, two thirds of them would be considered train=wrecks but it looks as if that thread has been pruned. I could have sworn it was in the archives but I cannot find it. Pity, you would be reading those threads long after the 30 day snooze is over.

                    Even at 13 posts your post is suspect.
                    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

                    Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

                          I really don't understand the question. How could anyone on the COTH forums know what some unknown person on a Facebook group will post in the future, and why would anyone care?

                            Anything can become a train wreck if the folks in the chat have a cray cray streak. I can imagine a FB train wreck over first vs second cut hay, Voltaire v Butet, automatic waterer v buckts, day v night turnout, Ford v Ram pickup, length of reins. All topics that could be discussed quietly of course.

                            If people wanna fight they will fight. Humans cause trainwrecks not ideas.

                            And if the rest of the group didn't want to engage and cause a train wreck, they wouldn't. They'd just ostracize the poster and not engage.

                            So the train wreck post meets the needs of many posters on that forum.

                            Snooze for 30 days.

                                  What Scribbler said. Sometimes it's not the topic that causes the trainwreck, it is the personalities behind the topic.
                                  And I like cake too.

                                    You have something against rainbows?

                                    Don’t tell me let me guess, much as we couldn’t have baaa baa black sheep, now the rainbow sheep, and its cake are suspect?

                                    lets see, train wrecks are alive and well, and waiting to derail most any thread....
