Meanings of terms - Neeed Help! Updated List

(1/18) > >>

CattleWiz:
A lot of people post pictures of their animals on SP asking for opinions and feed back. I, along with some others have a hard time understanding what members opinions mean by the words/terms used. Like recently I asked what the term "soggy" was not knowing exactly what people meant by this term. I would like members help in creating a good list of Terms and their definitions that others can resort to when they don't quite understand a term being used. Thanks in advance for your help!

here.

It's going to be hard to actually come up with a list...  I have found it works better to ask about a specific term that you may not know about...  This is the time folks...

The other thing about blanket terms, and defining them-- what one thing means to one person, might mean something different to another.  

For instance, I say that's a stout animal- One person would read 'stout' as meaning big boned, huge footed, wide based, etc... and someone else will consider stout as meaning thick bodied, big assed, deep quartered, bold and wide through the chest floor, etc.  Simpilly put.. one term that when used alone can mean tons of things...

The thing that gets me, and really helps me determine if the person spitting out terms knows what they're talking about, or if they just heard it once.. is the adjectives and descriptions that they use in conjunction with that term... Like above..." That heifer sure is stout- I really like her substance of bone, foot size,and rear view muscle expression...

The other thing that really pops my bubble is when someone says.  "That heifer sure looks sound".. How can you tell she looks sound?  How about commenting on her appeared angles of front shoulder slope, foot/ pastern length/ slope, rear hock set, hooks to pins slope, tailhead angle, topline, head carriage, etc....

Soggy - big bellied, deep bodied, proper to heavier conditioned, soft, easy feeding looking

This is a good idea. It would make things easier if everyone had a general idea of what people were talking about!!  <rock>
