BECAUSE I am a stallion owner I know the problems that occur when people do this and have already had to do major repair jobs when it happened to me. I know of several other stallion owners that had to do the same.
I'm sorry you've had problems with this, but to be honest, I highly doubt that the critical comments of a few people on an internet forum will impact this stallion's reputation. If it does, then the owner probably has bigger problems - why is she breeding such a creature that people can be so easily turned off of? - then my little thread. And in any case, this is the internet
, this horse up for stud on a public
website, horses are not
copyrighted material. None of the photos of this horse even have a copyright mark.
I register the fact that you think this is somehow unethical, but you haven't convinced me at all. You can be upset all you want that someone "disses" your horse when you didn't ask for a critique as they walk past him in real life and say that he looks like a donkey. You can be upset when someone does the same thing on the internet. Does this being on the internet somehow make it worse? Especially considering that in real life your horse was just standing there minding its own business, and for YOUR horse to be on the internet YOU must have ACTIVELY placed it there?

This is hilarious. You think every person on this site posting a thread asking for a critique on a stallion or a horse that someone else is selling that they are interested in has the permission of the owner? I highly, highly doubt this.
So is your problem that I didn't get permission? Like supposedly everyone else on this website who posts a horse that isn't theirs does.
Or is it that with this post that I'm asking for a horse that is not mine to be critiqued? Something that many people on here do, whether it be a stallion, gelding or mare.
Or is it the fact that you think that I need a better REASON to post a thread asking for opinions on another horse's conformation? Obviously I think I have reason enough or else I wouldn't have posted it, and I can live with the fact that it doesn't meet your standards for a thread.
