I don’t understand what it is that people are finding strange about this site. Can someone fill me in?

As the description reads “equestrian”, they probably saw it as something related to MLP: FiM.

No…the breading part was the one that caught my eye…

I’ve seen banner ads of that game around the web. I think it gets advertised to me because Google knows I’ve been looking at ponies but the game itself has nothing to do with MLP I am sure.

And with that:

Also, horse breeding? If that’s shocking enough for a thread, I should make a “Rape-prostitutes-in-the-back-of taxi’s-in-Grand-Theft-Auto General”

What, Why? Thats what you have to do to get more horses. Maybe its because I work with livestock on a daily basis, but I don’t find the prospect of breeding horses ( be it through natural or artificial insemination) to be weird at all. Hell, Ive seen in person how the semen is acquired as well as inserted. Im sure the game shows none of this.
No offense, but grow up.

Where do you expect baby horses to come from, then?
For that matter, do you know mixing breeds of a species create the best racehorses?

No. The best track race horse breeds are the thouroughbred and the quater horse. The quater horse is the fastest breed of horse, some have been clocked at over 55 mph, but as the name suggests, it’s best for quater mile sprints. The thouroughbred is used for races such as the Kentucky derby( 1 and a quater mile). more stamina than the quater horse and more lean to keep up the speed, but not enough muscle to sprint like a quater horse.

There is some truth in what you said. These breeds where made by crossing breeds that had favorable traits. The quater horse breed, for example, was made by crossing thorughbreds with a native American breed that itself came from the Iberian breeds. But now that the breeds are established, you can’t crossbreed and still compete in the big events. You can try at the local races, but the Big races wont except a cross between, say, a thoroughbred and an Arabian.

EDIT yeah, I know I ranted over something that I’m sure no one cares about.

You’d think people never played videogames with breeding before:

I’m inclined to your observation. I tip my hat off to you. I’m sure i could think of something snappy, but I won’t. Go ahead, make fun of me. That’s what everyone does. Obviously you have taken my quotes to seriously, so I’ll go along with this.

I’ve had a rough day, full of disappointment, and don’t need to listen to anyone else’s negative responses today.

For the love of my humanity, someone lock/delete this thread.

Come on, don’t be so dramatic. I wasn’t making fun of you. I was just saying that you should be more mature about the subject.

No, it wasn’t you.

I tried to make light of my day due to a horrific subject that happened earlier. Nothing was really based on you, or anyone here who was trolling me.

Mar 16, 2012 at 05:38PM EDT

I just thought it was something suggestive because it used the term “breeding.”

…I REALLY hope they don’t go into too much detail with this.
