Okay. I must disagree. With all due respect,
1) I don't think you need to worry about diminishing Smart Chic Olena's value; he is an NRHA $9 million sire and a NRCHA $1 million sire.
2) Will Clinton Anderson's decision to stand his stallion for a $1,500 cause an influx of breeding/slaughter - You've got to be kidding me. Although I completely agree that many people make foolish choices when it comes to equine reproduction, which can have devestating consequences, this will be a problem regardless of whether Clinton Anderson decides to stand his stud.
3) Cross-breeding has been used for centuries to improve various breeds. As long as the books have not been closed by the sponsoring breed association, offspring can be registered.
Finally, I do understand why you worry about the legions of unwanted and/or neglected homes that need a good home. Of course we all wish that all horses had great homes, like the three of mine do, living on 15 acres of pastureland in Texas with a big 2 story barn, lots of attention and full vet and farrier care. However, the reality is, this is not the case. Although I am a horse lover to the core, I think that the real tragedy is the closing of the horse slaughter facilities in the United States, the result of which is that horses must be sent down to Mexico for slaughter, where instead of being humanely euthanized, they are subjected to a barbaric death in which knives are plunged into their withers until they bleed to death. If you want to be angry at anybody, be angry at those responsible for this, and not at Clinton Anderson.
Rich people are just as capable of abuse and neglect as poor people, and a $1,500 stud fee is hardly anything to sneeze at. I have observed that Clinton Anderson works tirelessly to educate and inspire horse owners so that they may be safe and successful in their equine pursuits. Your time will be better served studying and practicing his methods than criticizing his decision to share world class bloodlines at a price that average people can afford.
In summary, don't blame Clinton Anderson for the problems of the world. He is part of the solution.
