I was not "targeting" you or your posts. I don't target posters. I don't care who posts what. I target inaccuracies. Look at the thousands of posts I have made. None of them are "targeted" at any one person.
Colour registries have always been, and will always be, unreliable places to do colour research. I could spend all day going through the inaccuracies of the three registries alone that you have pointed out, never mind the thousands of other registries that are also wrong.
It is reasonable to assume we are all here because of our love of horses. Each of us bring a unique interest to the field though. I would never claim to be an expert in dressage, or in reining, or driving, or breeding practices. I do, however, without any false modesty, have a very deep, current and accurate knowledge of horse colours, and the genetics behind them. When you say "IMO" something that I feel is incorrect, I am not "attacking" you when I correct it. Most of the time, I feel that I am doing something else I love - teaching (primary school teacher here, I can't leave it at work lol). If my responses seem abrupt at times, I apologise. Not only am I busy professionally, but I have three small children who all think the keyboard is something that will steal their mother's soul (can't say I blame them), which makes lengthy replies that cushion people's feelings often unfeasible for me. I apologise if you have felt victimised or anything like it. It was not my intention at all. Sharing my knowledge is the only reason I replied.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
