You failed your own argument here. How can you judge the young horses then, to make the decision to register as Foundation, if we too cannot judge them from photos (as you did)? I hardly think all the posters here are ignorant, we too can judge conformation. Even the more flattering photos you chose (under saddle? moving? hmmm...) still reveal the same conformational faults.
And again, the majority of the horses you chose were of the old bloodlines -- so you didn't like the direction of SDHR prior to it's revival. You CAN judge young horses -- but don't you think it's most helpful to have actual conformation shots to judge? And wouldn't you rely more heavily on the word of judges themselves than looking at pictures? Just asking. I never implied that anyone was ignorant, but you ALL should know that looking at yearlings isn't really fair to the horse you're looking at. Ugly heads, imho, aren't a conformational fault. An upright shoulder is but did you grab an angle to see what the angles are on the pictures you chose? Between 45-48 is ideal. Hip angles also have their correct ideal angles, as do length of back, bone depth, etc. Does an upright shoulder on one horse mean that the whole horse is terrible? No, it means that the horse has an upright shoulder and there are still ample other things to look at.
So who else is involved? Should I list the dozens of breeders, either members of SDHR or not, who I have also communicated with extensively? You seem to have a personal vendetta against anyone who suggests that your horses are not perfect, even if it wasn't meant personally... interesting.
Sure, go ahead and list everyone. As SDHR doesn't have members, I'm curious what 'members' you are speaking with.
I don't have a personal vendetta -- I'm merely clarifying things. You've stated mistruths, I'm clearing them up. On the BOD, there are two more people -- another Heather and Rachel. All of us are reachable via the emails provided, or via facebook.
As you only posted a picture of a single "new" SBDH Foundation horse, I should point out that at this time, we have only approved 47 horses out of over 200. The only foundation animal you posted is Rosie -- and I think she's quite a nice mare, personally (apparently so do the judges she's shown under). So again, I have no problem with the horses not being perfect. Point out to me one animal that has NO faults whatsoever. Please. I'd like one of those!
