What makes your horse yours?
It kinda bothers me a little bit when i watch shows and listen to people around me and they go on and on about how either they want to put a horse down because it doesnt have the right genes or color or talent. I mean yeah i guess to a certain extent there is a limit to it but it really bugs me when others criticize because they're horse has something wrong with it.
I just recently posted a thread for my stud. Hes mine, hes great, hes a true black & yeah i got told hes cow-hocked, steed pastures and all this fun stuff and im thinking to myself, "does it really matter?"
Its not like i wasnt asking for it, i mean you can call my horses ugly and stupid and they should be put down but chances are im going to tell you to shove it because they are my horses. They have a special connection with me from the minute i saw them. Im not out to win a race, barrels, reining, jumping, dressage, all that fun stuff everybody spends thousands of dollars on because they want top branded horses. I mean to me its stupidpersonally. Its just my opinion but i want to hear yours.
What is it about your horses that makes you connected to them?
For me its their personalities, most of my horses were saved from slaughter, 3 wern't but with all my horses there is something special. So does it bug you that others point out all their flaws? Because they dont have papers? Because they have names on their papers nobodys ever heard of?
