Oh I know what she is saying and I still disagree. I think there is nothing wrong with the big tall ones. They are beautiful and nothing at all like caricatures. I think if that wasn't the direction that well respected breeders thought was the way to go, they wouldn't be doing it.
These are people that used to breed for short stocky European brabant types. It's also about demand and people are liking the bigger taller ones. Despite the difficulty with harnessing a taller horse.
I think to say these are going to become weaker versions of the original is completely inaccurate.
