That's really cute without the snarky-ness! Thanks for sharing!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I love that poem and it is vey much the truth, i wonder why that fact is messed by so many breeder.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

I wish breeders could understand that just because they are breeding to a "papered" horse, doesn't mean the horse fits all the characteristics of the breed o.O;

I knew so many walking horses in AL that didn't gait once in their life. I knew so many Quarter Horses that were 100% pure QH but looked like thoroughbreds.

Sadly, these Associations will turn away grade horses that fit EVERY aspect of the breed standard just because "they arent out of papered stock". BUT.. they WILL register a horse that is out of two pure parents.. but the conformation is so messed up if its bred it will actually be detrimental to the breed.

Oh, horse people! We are so funny :p

The only funny apart about that is, I don't know if I should laugh or cry.

It would be nice if the US registries brought back inspections, only allowing good representations of the breed allowed as breeding stock, like the Warmblood registries do. But, that's not likely to happen any time soon...

I hope it doesn't happen you then lose each persons opinion on what that breed should be. I have no desire to have someone else tell me whats best for myself and my customers. Besides many people that have breeds with inspections tell me its alot to do with money and politics as to whats approved.

Each person's idea of what the breed should be is why we have HYPP, HERDA, SCIDS, inherited navicular, erratic behavior, etc., and the current glut in the horse market. Every breed has been ruined by so many people by what they think the breed "should be," judges included.

It happens in the dog world too. It's just pathetic. We ruin everything in the name of greed, selfishness, or notariety, or all of the above.
