yes Rafi you said you felt bad for the horse. And I stated you were probably salivating to come here and post horrible things to piss off Tom. The "with glee" was an expression. My problem is not with you and Derek's concern for Vyjack, it is with the trashing of his connections, which you did over and over and over. And Derek, I never accused you of not caring for the horse, my problem was with Rafi, For anyone who has a problem with Tom, that's your issue, but if you're going to label me a minion because I hang out with Tom outside of this site, that's just silly.
Rafi your use of the word hypocrite doesn't really seem to fit here. hyp·o·crite [hip-uh-krit] Show IPA noun 1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. 2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.
Triple double, it's hard not to take it personally when people I have met and was treated very well by are disrespected. And then for that post insinuating that I don't care about the horses welfare, well those are fighting words that will make me say things my mother would be shocked by.
So the feeling is mutual since you clearly are an animal welfare expert and I hate horses.
Did I read this correctly DerekFisher? You are accusing a VETERINARIAN of not caring about a horse more than you? Ah yes, I love to see horses hurt, suffering and so on. As I have posted in the past, I am against horses with VALID, DOCUMENTED medical problems running in races, not happy, fit and healthy sound horses. How in any way was Vyjack endangered? When it was clear there was no chance of winning he was eased. And I am glad you have all respect for me for standing up to someone who was talking shit about some very nice people. If that causes you loose respect, then you have issues. SO GO ON WITH YOUR MERRY LIFE DEREK BECAUSE YOU WILL NEVER KNOW MORE ABOUT ANIMAL WELFARE THAN A VET. Your ignorance speaks volumes.
do any of you know his connections? NO. Rafi I know you are getting off with glee on the fact that he was eased, purely because you have beef with Tom. Vyjack's connections are very nice people so please don't pass judgement on people you don't know- you look foolish. They have been nothing but kind to me. And since none of you were there, you clearly did not see how much Vyjack has filled out and how fit he looked. Playing Monday morning quarterback is so easy. Also glad to see that you've graduated to a trainer now Rafi. This post absolutely disgusts me. It is alright to feel sorry for a horse when he is eased but when you start talking SHIT that is when it stops being okay.
Congrats URR :)
Equibase shows her being purchased for $210,000, not $22,000. Regardless, very nice filly.
Way to go Lexie Lou!
