I think sometimes we take things others say a little too much to heart. If you put a horse up for critique and are told he's not as stellar as you think he is, the tendency is to get defensive. We need to remember a/ we asked for it and b/ we have the right to accept or not accept the critiques as we chose. We don't have to accept anything at face value. Ultimately, it's up to us what to do with our own horses regardless of what others think. However, hearing a bunch of folks say that the colt is not a stallion prospect would certainly make me keep that thought foremost in my mind when deciding his future.
