OP, indeed, welcome to the forum. Perhaps by now you've had a little more time to look around and get a better sense of what this place is all about. I think what you might be reading as "bashing" is more cautioning. For the record, I have an OTTB, I find him hot headed and not for a beginner, though that is what I was when I got him. While there are many that are not "high" horses, TBs have been bred to be very energetic and yes, even hot. I have seen no bashing on this forum, I'd be very sensitive to this and wouldn't have missed it. But just because TBs are incredible and have, IMHO, more positive traits than negative, doesn't mean they are for everyone or that they are all the same.
For the record, I am also a pit bull owner and advocate, but I recognize this breed also has special considerations and don't feel everyone should own one!
