Haha, I didn't mean it as a slur to your mares at all. I've never even seen them, lol. Its just that even if your mare was a world champ at something, his genes are going to be used as well, giving you a less than ideal horse. Im out in the country in Texas and see people breeding totally crap studs to crap mares and end up with more of something that isn't worth anything daily. There is a group of what I consider nastily conformed horses just down the road from me that I have to stare at when I go to school every day, lol. They also aren't feeding them and they got thin through the winter, but are putting weight back on now that grass is here.
