    Trainwreck subjects

    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.

    Shoeing....to shoe or not to shoe.

    Breeding

    What is the right age to start a horse?

    Blanketing

    "big" bits aka anything more than a loose ring snaffle sometimes starts a war

    Slaughter

    On more general topic horse forums, with a lot of backyard horse owners - blanketing . Blanketing can torch the friendliest all-comers type of forum, it seems, as those who keep their horses closer to the Arctic Circle school horse owners from South Alabama on how no horse ever needs a blanket, ever. Not even if it is the first freezing weather in 20 years with 25 mph wind and the horse has very little in the way of a winter coat. People live inside their own experience, I guess.

    Yeah, perhaps 30 days from here also to let the crazy cool down might be a good idea.

    Sounds like the same time period. They continued for quite awhile and at least one of the banned has tried to sneak back on a couple of times. Not lately though. Don’t think anybody has gotten any of ugly PMs that also continued for some time. I still think of it often when somebody posts a shoeing/ trimming thread that creates some disagreement. PTSD I suppose.

Or the PV thread that detoured down many sidings and spun off other related and equally contentious threads. Now those were true train wrecks that were not started by trolls for amusement.

    Some of the more recent attempts to deliberately start one have been bland and most unoriginal.

    It has been noticed on a couple of forums I read that a prolonged nation-wide spell of miserable winter weather will cause any topic at all to go into meltdown. In fact, most of the active topics end up going to pieces on those forums.

    Also I think that in this very thread, the critical, humorless posts of discouragement show how any topic at all, even the funny ones, can end up as a bickerfest. When people don't like the topic and won't simply find something else to read (there have to be a couple of dozen active threads on COTH, at least). Would a bite of rainbow cake lighten their mood?

    So here are some I've noticed ... with the caveat that COTH is not nearly as combustible now as it has been in the past.

    - Bought a pony for my kid from my trainer, kid adores pony but pony is trying to kill kid, I know nothing about horses, are my kid and her pony ready to go to horse shows yet?

    - Sent my horse out for training but I think the trainer botched the job. Or cheated me. Or both. I'm going to tell off him/her, what do I say?

    - How do I get my parents to pay more for me to ride?

    - I (or my nearly-adult child) have a working student position with a prominent top rider and I hate it because I (or my child) have to work too hard.

    - At my board barn, one of my fellow boarders is a PITA but is the barn manager's favorite. Three pages into the thread I reveal that I've been rude to both. What do I do now?

    - One of my boarders hasn't paid in months and has three horses with no market value, and I want these horses out of here asap, and I want my board money, too, but she won't go or pay. What do I do without paying a lawyer?

    - Rule changes. Especially those that are still in committee and not yet approved.

    - George Morris.

    Shanking is a funny term when you compare it to the definition outside of the horse world.

    Rainbow cake? I thought it was considered rude to bring a loaf of bread to a dinner party. I thought the act of doing so was train wreck material. Perhaps my old addled brain has is wrong.

    Beck, I checked out the avocado cake and inspite of its slightly greenish, grinchy hue, it looked not bad. Then I checked the Rainbow Cake and honestly, it takes the cake. That “explosion in the tye dye factory” aesthetic, floating numbers, a heated debate over the definition of frozen, and almost immediately an hysterical link to the assasination of Arch Duke Ferdinand. That cake has magikal, mysterious powers that can’t be equaled. It’s a cake Timothy Leary could endorse.

    Hmmmm...rainbow cake sounds good. Guac does not.

    P.S. I forgot. Bingo!
    Well not together of course, yuck!

    The avacado cake looks like it might work. Avacados do not really have much flavor, they are mostly oil.
