Doing “the vegan thing” would actually mean NOT wanting to use animals as entertainment/props. I doubt there are charities that *need* animals. Quite the opposite.

Maybe think about the animal’s needs instead of your wants and settle on something that doesn’t involve the welfare of an animal?

prettyinpinkish :  You are all over the place in this post. Your exact words were “and yes, I am dead serious.” Then you say the whole pony proposal thing was just meant lightly and imply that SO ‘s atypically unenthusiastic reaction to what was just in fun is your issue. 

Then you were 75% serious. 

When you got negative feedback because people were justifiably confused or critical of a poorly thought out plan involving a live animal, the story kept changing. Now we’re back to donations of animals being a great idea. 

Maybe SO occasionally is just not in the mood for this.

prettyinpinkish :  One second you’re buying a pony for a proposal like it’s an inanimate object and the next you’re patronizing everyone with your charitable expertise on training service animals with inane babble about PTSD and mini horses….lol wut

I guarantee there are far more charity operations rescuing neglected ponies and miniature horses than there are people actively seeking them for therapy. Hands down. Let it go. Please.

lexibridetobe :  If you are referring to my comments – I was actually not being snide or teasing.

prettyinpinkish :  

And you do realize that very few animals are temperamentally suited for any kind of therapy work.  And since you are so knowledgeable in this area, you, of course, understand that it requires an expert to evaluate a potential service animal.

About the only thing you’ve said so far that makes sense is your comment about the amount of fraud in the service animal industry.  I must agree on that.  My first love (I don’t breed them, just study bloodlines, own them, train them, and love them) is working line German Shepherds and I am painfully aware of what goes on.
