    Re: [RC] re: electric corral - Tina Hicks

    When I first started endurance I thought those that tied to the trailer 
    almost inhumane :-p I mean, how could anyone just tie them to the 
    trailer like that? Can't they see they need to move? I mean just because 
    people have  been doing that since the beginning of time doesn't mean it 
    should still go on, right? 
    ahhh, the ignorance and opinionated-ness of a beginner :)
    Tina - who used to pen but now pickets and would tie if needed
