IMHO, you should love your guy for what he is, not who he may or may not slightly resemble.


This is all I have to say to that.




I think he is adorable. Still young so it is hard to say, I would not look at him and say he is a Doc Bar baby but he is a cute little guy.

I don't think smrobs was rude. She was blunt and honest, and I agree with her assessment of the colt.
Wallaby and Golden Horse like this.

I to see nothing rude in Smrobs post, lets see..

At 19th months it is hard to say for sure, colts go through all sorts of stages as they develop, there are times that they look spectacular, ther eare times you wish you had a horse sized paper bag to hide them in because they are just fugly. So all you can say from one pic is he looks like himself, and that he looks like a colt, who knows where he is on his road yet?

Second an honest assessment of the difference in build between the two pics.

Third, the advice that we all should follow, love your horse for what he is, don't try and make him into something he isn't.

So what if the colt doesn't look like Doc Bar? Doesn't make him any less than he is

Being blunt is a word for being rude.

I am blunt from time to time and I will admit I am rude, but I felt it was not called for here.

Definition of Blunt

What was not called for? I don't see anything ANYWHERE in smrob's post that could be construed as rude. She complimented the horse, explained how he did not look like Doc Bar, and offered advice for loving the horse no matter who he looked like.

Blunt can also mean dull, so perhaps smrobs is dumb or else just a poor cutting surface....

It is not the words with which she wrote, but which she insinuated and how she worded what she wrote.

I am NOT disagreeing with her nor am I agreeing with her, I just feel (and it is how I read and took it) that she was being rude and too harsh for what the OP had posted. TO ME she tried to twist it to making it seem like the OP only loved her horse or liked her horse because it may resemble Doc Bar when the OP said nothing of that she only wanted opinions on if anyone else saw the resemblance. I also felt her comment (bold above) was rude to the OP when she had no means to be rude to the OP. THIS IS HOW I UNDERSTOOD IT AND IT IS HOW I READ HER POST!
