Can you post a link to a horse??
There is a link I want to post, but is that OK?? Its not my horse, but of a halter stallion...I guess it wouldn't technically be conformation, but might. I just wanna ask something about it. Please let me know. Thanks!

I think, unless you either own the horse, own the photo, or have permission of horse owner, it might not be the right thing to be critiquing horses on the web...

I think the rule on one forum is that you can if you are thinking of buying or breeding to the horse.

Re: Can you post a link to a horse??

The #1 rule for *this* particular forum is:
1) Only post a picture of a horse if you have actual photographers rights to the photograph, own or bred the horse.

It is not right to link/post other horses posted in the public domain for a critique in a critique forum. If you want to link/post in a general area and just ask/discuss, with no formal critique, there is usually no problem with that but to do so in this type (critique) of forum would be bad manners.

I think it would be ok to post a horse for sale if you personally have visited the horse and took a photograph. Then you would have rights to the photo but even then it could be iffy. We've discussed some of the photographic rights things on the old forum and it can get tricky.

I think a horse for sale would be okay to critique (if the poster has taken the photo) but I don't think we should critique stallions at public stud.

Re: Can you post a link to a horse??

Well Admin has final say, but I disagree about stallions standing. If a person is seriously considering breeding to said stallion, and said stallion has photo posted on his website, he is open for critique IMO. Just random horses, no I don't thinkt hey should be free for criticism, but stallions, yes. It's expected IMO.

But Admin says no, it's no. :D

Re: Can you post a link to a horse??

Wasn't there a lawsuit over critiquing a stallion somewhere? ABH maybe? I know Sarah was concerned about being sued -- whether the suit is valid or not, you still have to get an attorney and defend yourself. Daylene may be concerned about the same thing.

Wow! How sad... that's just silly someone would sue over that unless they were revealing information that should have been privy to the owner only (aka problems the horse has only the owner would know in most cases).

Well its not really a critique of the horse but more or less a question about his physique.
Its just a link to his website, but sure I can find more sites with more studs like him that I'm wonderin about.
As its only in the "halter" industry that I see this & wonder why!!
I can post in the general discussion area & ask my question so its not like a critique...I guess.

Just PM the link to one of our cracks. ;)
Ask them first if they would mind, of course, and learn what you want to know that way? We hate being left out, but I agree that it would not be PC to critique anything on the internet. :oops:

Sorry, I can't help anyone today because my butt is broken. There is a crack in the center of it.

:rofl

When I was little, like 5 or something, and got in trouble dad would threaten to "crack my butt"
Apparently I had just as wierd a mind back then because I decided my butt was already cracked and stared singing "cracked cracked my butt is cracked" :laugh1 : :booty :laugh1

I agree, but will abide by the rules! My yahoo group will critique any publicly posted photo of any horse. We've gone through some of the most popular arab studs. Usually it's all good though because there is always both good and bad parts to the conformation of all horses.
