Real equestrians don't follow Fugly.
Ok so fugs is back at work on blogger... how long and how many clicks on 'Report this blog' for hate or abuse do we think it will take to get rid of it again?
Good question. Of course we can be bad and continuously flag her until they take it down again.
And that would be a problem HOW? lol
Where is the article? I can't find it. Is it some magic thing that only subscribers can get to, or am I being blind?
DJ,I got it as a newsletter. I tried to find it but to no avail. I guess you will have to sign up.
"Ok so fugs is back at work on blogger... how long and how many clicks on 'Report this blog' for hate or abuse do we think it will take to get rid of it again?" What does this mean? She has a different blog? Or FHOTD is on blogger again?
Anyone see the latest issue of Horse Illustrated? I can"t believe they let her write for them. Do the powers that be at that publication even read her blog? Who in their right minds would have her write articles for their magazine. Way to staff your magazine with "professionals".I will be making a concerted effort to notify them of my feelings on the matter, repeatedly. That woman should never write for a horse magazine. EVER!!
Roses HI is in the business of selling ad space. Read the articles or not, they don't care. Look at the ads and buy those products. Want to get Cathy off HI? Call HI advertisers and tell them you won't buy their product as long as Cathy writes for HI. Cathy and Glenn Beck have lots in common, they are good for selling ad space, devil take the hinder most about truth and a balanced point of view.
Please post some of their advertisers and we can all write to them! Mob mentality in reverse!
What struck me as sad, in this month's issue of HI, was the article on Paints.Was OLWS mentioned?Of course not!Buy a mustang on-line!blech.
Just checked Fugs' blog this morning. My, she's riled up and in a tizzy. She says the baroque breeds attract crazy women and gaited horses, the obese. Way to go, Fugs, keep on stereotyping.
Yeah, fug's fat bashing is really starting to wear thing on me. Heck, the only horse I would feel comfortable riding was a gaited horse or a mule, because I am a big girl and I care about the animal I am riding. I don't want something that isn't comfortable carrying my weight. Does she not understand that fat people have common sense, too?~DK
Anyone else notice that the title of our topic is "aggression and dominance" and we are talking about FHOTD (good call GD, I don't want to stoop to her level and call names, but I do want Google searches picking up on these threads about her)
I don't care for stereotypes and generalizations. That means that all of us who have buckskins are a-holes. Dang it!
Well, I must be fat and want to ride down a gaited horse by 2 because I want one someday. Couldn't be my bad back at an early age. Nah. It's not like I haven't pulled my back multiple times and can't sit in certain seats without agitating it.Nope. I must be a fat cow with no concept of the animal beneath me.
I was always in love with well muscled horses (since I was 8 and thin as a rail). Guess it is my twisted childhood. What is sad is it seems to me that this woman, Genvieve, is a criminal intent on fraud, not a horse person. Stop blasting people who are in a breed because a con artist almost swindled a bunch!On another note, I saw in comments in a fugly post last week that a poster asked for help with confirmation identification (sounded like someone who was trying to learn). The poster asked why the blog does not really address that anymore. The fugly response was essentially that she had been there, done that and had to expand topics for her readers. VERY telling if you ask me!
Well looks like her sensationalism isn't working. Out of 56 comments 6 are Fubbs :)
Im just happy she has 56 comments and 6 are Fubby's

WIHAH,Can you tell the person to come over here. I'm sure that there's enough experienced people to give a good conformation study.WishIHadAHorsey said...On another note, I saw in comments in a fugly post last week that a poster asked for help with confirmation identification (sounded like someone who was trying to learn).

"She says the baroque breeds attract crazy women and gaited horses, the obese" Can some provide a quote on this?Can some provide a quote on FHOTD fat bashing?

April 3, 2010:FHOTD back in: See, I tell you, there is something with all those baroque breeds that is just a magnet for crazy. Gaited horses attract obese people who want to ride the crap out of them as 2 year olds, and baroque breeds attract pretentious, crazy women! I’m not saying you’re all crazy, but folks, Friesians and Vanners have a magnetic force field that attracts loonies like Wal-Mart attracts people with interesting fashion sense. Later that same day...fhotd says: April 4, 2010 at 2:40 pmSometimes I really feel like I need to present a venn diagram with my post for some of you:Just because type of horse A attracts type of person B does not mean that is ALL it attracts.Obviously, some of you are perfectly sane. But it is a fact that whenever I encounter a story like Genevieve’s, dollars to donuts the person is going to be involved with one of the following:1. Friesians2. Gypsy Vanners3. Something else with a lot of mane. I.E. ArabiansWhereas every time I encounter a story where someone is more just shady and evil in a business sense – sane, but rotten – they are likely to be involved with a stock breed or Thoroughbreds. I am fairly certain that if I made a chart from the beginning of this blog, we could show this pattern. I am not picking on anyone’s breed in particular, or anyone’s discipline, as you should all know by now. I’m merely stating that every breed has its cross to bear and fluffy horses tend to get delusional women whose don’t live in reality and whose web sites includes a lot of talk about their dreams and magikal horses and associated claptrap.So, if you’re a sane person with fluffy horses, obviously this does not apply to you so why would you be offended by it?Several Fubb-followers called her on this. Plenty others did the total agreement thing.
and fluffy horses tend to get delusional women whose don’t live in reality and whose web sites includes a lot of talk about their dreams and magikal horses and associated claptrap.So now she's telling people what they can and can't put on their websites? You can't talk about your dreams anymore because it makes you delusional?
Elysian Fields Farm says: Fugly– A lot of things you write are “right on”– BUT I hate it when you start with the generalizations. and OOPS- you’ve done it again with the above statement.LOL she actually let someone disagree?
I'll bet dollars to donuts that unremarkable grade horses get the most abuse and ding batty owners. Why, cause there are simply more of them. Poor ownership doesn't know a demographic, just like spouse abuse or child abuse doesn'"t. What FHOtD is trying to do is create an "us vs. them" mentality. It is easier to abuse and vilify a stereotype then real people. Real people ride horses, some of us are fat, some of us are dreamers, some of us are middle aged and scared of falling and hurting ourselves; because we have families who depend on us for our money, love, devotion, cleaning, driving and cooking skills. It is just as much of a stereotype to say that buckskin QH stallions attract middle aged queen bees. I'm sure there are a lot of nice QH buckskin stallions that aren't owned by FHOtD.
Jenna, notice the "disagreement" "A lot of things you write are "right on". This isn't a disagreement, it's somebody kissing FHOtD ass in order to get a logical, reasonable point across. You look on this board for real, reasonable disagreement.
My problem w/ Fubby is she lives in a glass house and I think her closet is full of skeletons. I do hope someday hers will be plastered all over.I think this bunch of thoughtful and intelligent people are getting to her and it makes me giggle You guys rock!
bahahahaha so I go to her blog and the ad at the bottom is for Feemansaddlebreds and friesians! someone should let www.freemansaddlebreds.com know that they are advertising with someone who bashes them.
Hmm I wonder how ol' Fubbly would stereotype crazy rescue people if she wasn't one of them? Would she call them... Attention Whores? Drama Queens? Villain Makers?Savior Complex?People who make mountains out of mole hills?
