| So...here you are. Words that are often misspelled.
Herd--as in a horse herd
Heard--to hear something
To--as in to go somewhere or do something
Too--as in too long, too much, too little, etc.
Mane--a horse's mane
Main--as in the main event, or main purpose, etc.
Loose--as in something is loose and about to fall
Lose--to lose something
Whose--As in 'whose is that?'
Know--as in 'I know you.'
Won--to win something
Its--As in 'its battle was finished'
Keep in mind:
To show possession of something, use: his, hers, theirs, ours, etc.
Apostrophes-- ' --those things--are used when intending to join he is, she is, there was, there is, etc. into one word. For example. He's going to do this. There's a place I know. Who's that?
Also remember to USE PUNCTUATION. Capitalize the first letter of every sentence, as well as names of horses, places, days, months, etc. The first letter of EVERY word in the sentence is NOT supposed to be capitalized. Separate your sentences via . ! ? etc. It's really annoying when someone types something like: he was furious he didn't know what to do the stallion attacked the other one yay he had won
Note how there's no punctuation there? It's also really annoying when people type like this: The Stallion Was Handsome. He Wanted A Mare Very Badly.
Try to keep these things in mind when posting. Most computers had some sort of word processing program on them, such as Microsoft Word, which will spell check for you. If you are unsure of spelling, punctuation, etc., and it's not covered in this section of the board, copy and paste your post into Word and spell check it. Works every time. =]
