What do you think of this stallion?

I have to say I'm attracted to his flashy coloring. I'm not great at picking out conformation faults, so I was wondering what everyone else thought.

DISCLAIMER: I am not considering breeding my horse to him or any other stallion at this time.

Unless you have breeding intentions or own this horse or have a REAL justification on why you want my opinion, critiquing a horse just for the sake of critiquing is not something I do or feel anyone should do.

Did you get the stallions owner's permission to ask for this opinion gathering?

If you don't want to that's certainly your prerogative. It is also your prerogative to ignore a thread you find pointless. People post their horses all the time to get critiques on their conformation, just because. They have no intention of selling them, they are just curious. Also, if I must justify my reason for this thread, notice I said "I am not considering breeding my horse to him or any other stallion at this time." It is something I am considering in the future.

I don't think I need the owner's permission. A horse is not a copyrighted work, and this particular horse is being advertised on a public site on the internet.

I personally would not give positive feedback on this stallion and if it were mine I would be upset that someone went out and dissed my stallion when I did not ask for a critique.

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.

Yes but it was THEIR horse or had permission when it wasn't.

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.

This type of thing goes no where and is not allowed. If this was a stallion who you where considering breeding a particular mare to that would be different as it is not about the stallion but the cross. People put up adds for their stallions to get mares owners to breed to them. Not to be picked apart on a forum. The horse industry is a small one and things get around.

That all being said I am locking this thread.

-I'm so busy... I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse.
-An Armed Man is a Citizen an unarmed man is a subject.
