We can see how many 'big' breeders pump out horses, I still worry about the morons breeding willy nilly with NO market, the people picking up cheap horses and breeding them just because they think they'll suddenly have a market (which they wont) We have NO clue, how many small time idiot breeders are pumping out horses, THAT scares me worse than the big breeders.
I agree I see so many here in Kentucky alone we have the TB industry and a decent QH and saddlebred breeders then you take these inbreds breeding those jug headed conformational train wrecks because it might gait and if it don't we'll torture it until it does nothing is registered and those that are shouldnt be its crazy hell they shouldnt be reproducing themselves let alone horses.
