Pigs- Judging by that spectacular form, he may show real promise in the Steeple Chase. Perhaps the swim team is missing the mark??

We are quite proud. No, T34C, he is afraid of horses and has a swimmers build. Gymnastics are out but he is considering wrestling and diving.

Guess he could give a whole new meaning to a corkscrew dive, eh?

Hmm. What I meant is that an attitude may appear strange or stupid when the context, that is the person is unknown. When you know where the person is coming from the attitude, may be more understandable.

Pets may be part of the family, but some people may go over the top. For some they may be a substitute for children, for various reasons. It happens. It doesn't mean one has to share their attitude but one might have difficulty changing it. If someone has a pit bull, which most, rightly or wrongly, think includes a Staffordshire bull terrier, one might suspect a background of violence which gives a strong emotional need for protection.

As some point out she seems to be thinking emotionally rather than rationally.

In a forum the person is unknown, and while I agree that direct feedback can have value, it might be tempered as it would be in say a yacht club, where a rolled eye, or muttered comment goes unnoticed.

The points were answered sensibly. The emotional inconsistencies were noted. So the person has some issues? Very unusual. Do we need to go into comments on their photo?

The strength of forums like these is that they encompass all from raw beginner to international expert, as people, largely without regard to age, wealth, politics etc. That there are also individual vagaries may be noted, but as in real life one may accept rather than focus on them.

Chris - I understand your point, and it is very thoughtful. However I don't think it is my, or anyone elses responsibility, to just over look someones mental or emotional deficits, weather here or at the yacht club. Unless you are saying that she is truely handicaped or mentaly ill, I think the argument could be made quite to the contrary, that it is the obligation of someone, opening themselves up to discourse in a public forum, to remove their emotional hang-ups and preconceived ideas before asking for comment.

I do agree that "jabbing" someone because of a photo is not really called for, unless the photo is included in the topic by the poster.

PB- I think thats a "porkscrew" dive!

Question 12 pages just for me?

I am amazed that there is an entire thread dedicated to how insane I am[score one for me]. I do love my dogs as children but I do not think that it is all that foriegn considering the dog clothing companies magazines etc. Insulting me for a long 12 pages just shows the bordom in our society, hence the reason we go sailng. To escape from the norm as well as the idiot masses. I do not drive a volvo. I am a horseshoer by trade and and am anything but typical. I rode frieght trains as a juvenile and traveled the country for free. So I am used to the sceptisism such as being a woman horseshoer. I am not suprised by the comment regarding my husband hair. Another typical comment from a mainstream 9-5 pice of sh*t. He is a scuba and surfing instructor for juvenile delinqunts and spends all day fixing your f**ked up kids. I am suprised that in a group of people who should be out of the box are so closed minded. Why do people feel the need to tell others what the can and cannot do? I am not even going to comment on the blonde jokes.

Well, OK, I was wrong in my last post regarding a sense of humor. I know a handful of farriers who DO have one, I guess she doesn't.
So, about the horseshoeing, do you do ponies? I need something in a non skid, yet with a good grip on wet surafces.
