    I get sick of people complaining about them too but if your picture is almost black or something like that how are they suppose to critique them in the first place

    I understand. I just continuously have to chuckle at people that judge horses from pictures and arrive at conclusions, when to properly judge a horse you have to put your hands on it. Hoof quality, joints, muscle tie-ins, tendons, and ligaments are among the most important conformation issues there are, and you can't assess those from pictures.

    But it is fun to pick out what we can see from pictures, and we learn a lot doing so - just so we understand it is only picking out the obvious and not a true conformation assessment...no matter what the quality of pictures or video....

    What drives me absolutely CRAZY is that everyone always seems to say that every horse is "slightly sickle hocked".

    Faceman- oh yes you can only do so much from a picture, I do agree with that! I also like to learn from the pictures as well. Plus its fun to see other horses!

    I don't really like when people put up their horse photos and say "tear them apart". I know there is some good knowing the conformational faults of your horse, but sometimes I feel like a lot of people do it to confirm their fear that their horse is ugly... Like the girls on Youtube who post videos that say "Am I Ugly? (Be Honest)"... It's validating negative energy in my mind. You don't need somebody on a computer to point out your teeniest faults. If you love and own the horse, and he performs well, I wouldn't sweat the small stuff. Post in horse photos instead and get lots of compliments, lol. Maybe I'm just a softie..

    Oh vair oh-Haha that's understandable to, some people might like to know what is wrong with their horse to help prevent future problems if possible!

    I think it is wrong for someone to say 'can I have a critique on this horse' and then go around and say 'these are bad pics'

    I feel that is just kind of a waist of time :)
