    She only listened to the ones she wanted to hear, that's not what a critique is.

    When someone asks for a critique on their horse the first thing people want to know is the intended use for that horse. That's even the first thing vets ask during a pre-purchase exam.

    If the OP had stated a career other than breeding I'm sure the issue of him being a stallion would not even be mentioned except in passing.
    As for his future talent of making good babies I have to agree with the others.

    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.

    They did.
    She still likes her colt.
    She'll show her colt.
    She'll make her decision about gelding him then.
    She'll still like her colt.

    At first glance, I was thinking yeah, we know that. But reading again...you are right. Yeah, she does like her colt but we all like our horses whether they are in need of improvement or not...

    So, why is she asking for the critique? She is closed to most of the responses.

    It was just an odd thread.

    She's "barn blind." She did not honestly think that anyone could have anything bad to say about him. I admit that it hurts my feelings a little bit when I put my horse up and I hear others point out the negative aspects of her conformation, but I come on here with the knowledge that I can no longer see the whole picture because I like her and I want to know what her weaknesses are. If you cannot accept the idea that you are overlooking negatives in your horses because of your emotional bias, this forum will do you no good.
