Because "these are the best I have" does nothing for the people trying to help.

End of rant
It's supposed to be fun? If I wanted a professional evaluation I would pay a judge to critique my horse and not post it on an Internet forum where anyone can reply! In a perfect world I could get her to stand square while I snapped her picture. But, with no help and getting the best shot that I can I thought it would be fun to see what other horse owners thought about her! I enjoy hearing what others think about my girl and wasn't expecting anything other than that! No stress and no big deal! If you can't critique from the pictures posted then don't! Just go to the next post! I personally enjoy seeing other people's horses! . So try to keep a sense of humor and post only to the ones that you feel have the picture quality you need.

But, but, it's so much fun to try to point out any potential conformational issues from pictures like this.....

I like doing critiques, but if the pics aren't decent enough to actually do an okay critique, I just don't do one.

As far as anyone laying hands on a horse for physically critiquing it, you wouldn't get that at a show...maybe at a pre-purchase thing, where you are actually able to get your hands on a potential horse, but as far as showing, where 'critiquing' horses takes place the most, judges aren't allowed to touch the horses as a general rule.

How about" he's got a kind eye and seems inquisitive but, it's hard to see him because his nose is HUGE!" if they really wanted a good conformation critique hopefully they would post better pictures. try to keep the humor and have fun! Life's too short! Like I said, I posted for fun, no other reason.

Actually, the "fun" forum for photos is the "horse pictures" forum - the critique forum is just that, a forum for the serious critique of a horse's conformation. As to just "don't critique" them, then you have an OP who gets their feelings hurt as no one responds *and* who never learns why the photos provided were not appropriate for conformational critique. As part of the purpose of this site is education, it is more beneficial to offer information to the OP as to what photos are most useful for crititque and suggest posting such photos.
