Oh I know, my dog-stalker pal! ;-)
I mean, tho, that it's my experience horse people have more sense than dog people (assuming there are separate groups). They understand, for starters at base, that horses can kill you, whereas dog people don't get that about dogs. Thus they have more respect for horses, like people should have for lions, than the latter have for dogs. That includes, ironically, devaluing dogs' intelligence - ironic since generally they are smarter than horses!
Combined w/the Dr Spock approach to discipline, it makes a very dangerous combo. And a very Nazi-like lock-step world-view that labels and libels any1 outside their view "cruel", etc. That's why I don't like dog fora much.

LOL. Already the threads first disagreement:) I think most of the average horse owners out there these days, DON'T understand that. I have been critized by other horse owners for tying my horses to a tree to stand for awhile as a form of discipline, for using spurs, for riding them when they are sweaty, poor things are tired....:). I've seen people play tag with their horses, hid treats in their pockets for the horses to find, One girl I knew put the treat in the breast pocket of her T-shirt:). Think about that. After the horse got the treat out of the pocket, she jumped back with her eyes closed, faced her husband, raised her shirt and cried "is it still there?" LOL. Becky
