It's been too long. Jul 8, 2017
I work at a farm currently, though only ever at night. The majority of my time is spent patrolling around the barn, not around the horses, and I spend downtime reading about the horses.
When the sun is up, I try to get to know them in person, with caretaker and the farm manager supervising.
I'm going to make mistakes, and if I make them, I don't mind being corrected. But please remember that I am new. I'm not trying to be ignorant, but I apologize in advance if I don't know something immediately.
I tend to be pretty open minded, though when I'm offering counter-examples, it's not that I think you are wrong and are trying to argue, it's that I'm trying to fully communicate the situation in case any of the details I may have left out were important.
I can come off as intimidating and intense, so I apologize in advance if I offend anyone. If I respond rudely to anyone, it's only ever in reaction to something you've said. So if you didn't intend for it to sound rude, please patiently remind me to not read what you wrote in my head and put emotion into it, because 90% of the time, that ends up being the case, and that you weren't actually trying to be mean. If you were trying to be mean, really, then you deserve the same.
I'm here to learn. Not make friends. If I make friends in the process, that's awesome. But I'm not going to roll over and act submissive and weak when I'm not.
