    Post No Praise...(kinda rant)

    I know that horsepeople rarely give out praise unless it is highly deserved but I'm getting annoyed. As some of you may know, I recently purchased a filly. My trainer has a stud colt(a yearling so a lil older than my filly)and he expects everyone to talk bout how pretty he is and how nice he is and all that crap. I personally think the stud colt looks like a mule and is bay instead of black like my trainer says he is. So I was waiting for him to say something, anything about my lil filly. But everytime I brought her up, he would say something like," yeah but your horse only cost $300." Its not my fault that I found a great lil filly with great bloodlines for a great deal. He won't even say she's cute. I used to be ok with that when I had my other horses but for some reason, him not even acknowledging how smart or just how cute my filly is is really ticking me off. Thanks for reading my rant! =)

    i feel kinda stereotyped.... lol

    I would get a new trainer, I can't stand it when people judge horses on price, and not on the actual horse. Its not like a car, the good ones arent always 100 000. Personally, I would like a 3000 dollar horse tha is smart rather then a 400 000 dollar nutjob. I sooo want to see pictures of this little filly!!

    This trainer of yours does not sound like someone who you respect to start with so why does his opinion of your filly matter to you at all?

    If YOU like your horse, what does it matter what anyone else thinks?

    It sounds as if you don't like his horse either, especially the part where you say the animal looks like a mule. That's not very nice, yet you expect him to say something wonderful about your horse?

    If you and he are always at odds, why is he even your trainer? I could never tutor under someone I didn't respect.

    Price means little to nothing concerning the worth of an animal.

    My trainer just acquired a TB from the same person who gave me JJ. Her new horse is absolutely stunning, and although I think JJ is beautiful, this horse has an 'it' factor that JJ doesn't possess.

    He cost her nothing but the gasoline to go pick him up, and I seriously see this horse as being a major contender in the show ring.

    So, either let this person continue to annoy you by not saying anything about your horse, or let it go and just enjoy her. I know which option I'd choose.

    I respect my trainer, he's good at what he does and he gets horses to do what they're supposed to. Sometimes our personalities just crash together because he's in it for the money and I don't believe in that. The comment about his stud was because if you aren't praising his horses, then he gets mad at you. His horses have to be the best and he has been telling people that his stud is black, when he really is a dark bay. Sorry stuff like that just annoys me because less experienced people around here go along with what my trainer says and I don't like that fact. I havent been around my trainer lately because my filly is at a different place because he currently doesn't have room for another horse. My trainer is also...upset with me because he was offering his 3 year old gelding to me for $3,000 but me and the gelding didn't really get along and he wasnt right for me so I went out and bought a horse from someone else, which he didn't aprrove of because the person I bought her from isnt someone who cares about money but she's honest.

    Your trainer is in it for the money because that is how he supports himself and his family. There is nothing wrong with that. Perhaps he doesn't see much in your filly that he likes and he doesn't want to lie to you about how great she is. I wouldn't let that bother me and continue to have a professional relationship with him.

    I should mention something...that is hard to do at times. He is my cousin's boyfriend so I see him all the time. But thanks guys, you made me feel better. It was just that it hurt when the person I respected the second most didn't even acknowledge that I got a new horse, I had to bring her up for him to talk about her for like 5 mins. And he only saw her on Facebook, he didn't want to take a drive 5 minutes down the road from where we were to go with the rest of us to visit her. I guess I'm pretty much over it. =)

    Foal
    I got a new horse in the beginning of November. When I went to go look at/ride her I thought she was kind of cute though she had a small baby face. When I rode her I fell instantly in love with her. Now when I brought her to my trainers barn my trainer never said that she thought she was cute and when I rode her for my trainer to see her in motion she thought I made a mistake in buying her. Now she is one of the nicest horses at that barn. Her baby face turned into a cute 3 year old face and she lost her ugly winter color. She is so great to ride and has an awesome personality. My trainer now loves her. So maybe once your trainer sees her in action and as she grows up he will like her more.

    Just my 2 cents :)

    (ps I am super jealous of her mane, my horse has a thin mane.)
