G'day, i posted this on one of our other sites and thought you folks may have an opinion (BTW ,Bay did comment on the original post),but i am interested in if any of you think there was anything "wrong" in the language i used in the text?

This is a tale of "lust and raging hormones",those of you who have added this site will know of our kelpie dogs and some of their stories.Tina our youngest and is just starting out recently had her first cycle ,we thought we had it under "control",but you know what teenage girls are "like"?So now we have two "gorgeous male pups",one a very light Tan and one solid Red.I will post a pic once their eyes are open.They are both going to become available at about 8 weeks of age.You can PM me if you have an interest.....For more dogie adventures go to ....SHEEP Farmer

Define "wrong". There are some things I would change to make it more readable (at least to me).

T.O.R. posted that on his Facebook page and was told it was offensive. Just knock me gobsmacked, I sure don't see anything to get offended about. We talk about our animals, that includes breeding. Sometimes that includes "oops" breeding, they sure can be sneaky. I don't see anything offensive about this post. Anybody?

Could be the use of the words "lust" and the reference to what teenage girls are like, which is a generalization and not very flattering to that age or gender.

It didn't set off any negative feelings in me, but lots of folks looking for offense out there nowadays.

I'm so "sorry" i did not mean to cause "angst" within the group.The post was a "light heart' ed " response to the situation we were faced with.It was the opportunity for a little"humor" when facing this ongoing "dry ' and the daily tasks of "carting feed and water " to the sheep and the other duties i now face day to day.....Needless to say i will not attempt it again...T.O.R.
