Please refer to the Conscientious Etiquette Policy:

The Horse Forum was created so that people can discuss horses in a friendly, fun, helpful environment. While the Horse Forum is open to the public, we reserve the right to restrict access to those who undermine our efforts to preserve the character of the community.

Please exercise what we call conscientious etiquette when you post. This means that you keep the objective of preserving the forum's friendly, fun, helpful environment in the forefront of your mind as you write your message.

If your post is nasty, condescending, rude, etc., regardless of how subtle, and whether shrouded in the form of opinion or otherwise, it is subject to be removed and your access to the Horse Forum may be restricted.

This applies to the Critique forum as well. People come here because they are passionate about their horses. Naturally, a biting critique about an animal a person is passionate about can be very hurtful. While a request for critique implicitly invites criticism, the sensitive nature of such topics is all the more reason to post conscientiously, keeping the other person's feelings in mind.

Our interest in preserving the nature of the community trumps our interest in allowing everyone to share their opinion here. If you can't share your opinion in such a way so as to preserve the friendly, fun, helpful nature of the community, don't.

Please exercise conscientious etiquette when you post. Please use the alert button to notify the Horse Forum Staff when you read something by somebody who clearly hasn't.

Mercedes we see your point and you have made it, now you're just being a tool.

Yes conformation is vital to figure out if a horse is built for a sport and to select a training prospect. However I see your point, I've trained plenty of little fugly conformational train wrecks to be packers.
I would suggest some corrective work on those feet to get them to be where they need to be. Once his feet are correct, you should be all set to start barrels. :)

Thank you very much Spastic Dove,
His feet are looked after now, those pic's were taken a couple weeks ago the day before his trim, they're great now. I agree though about the pictures if his feet were still like that, my farrier ran busy and I was pushed ahead a bit when it came to get him trimmed, but back to normal and good now. I really appreciate your comment Spastic Dove, and Jillyann. I have started my barrel racing with him, and know what to look for in the future. Also thank you farmpony84, I deeply apologize where I have stated my rude comments, I felt as I needed to stand up and protect myself, but it will not happen again, thank you for re-instating that :) its something we all need to keep in mind.

you can start with nothing, and out of nothing or no way, a way will be provided.
