I don't think it'll help that much anyway. It wouldn't stop ol' Joe from breeding his grade mare(s) to the neighbor's stud. Because he doesn't care about registering anyway so why should he care about inspection.

Just to give an example, I got my paint from typical BYB. He had like 80+ horses to choose from. Of course 3 studs and bunch of mares, and tons of youngsters (although I must admit he was at least trying to breed for color AND confo and temperment). Anyway, he registered only those babies he liked at the birth (I was lucky enough mine WAS papered). All others were not, so I'd consider them grade (friend of mine got one without papers, and she went through tyhe hell trying to register 3 year old with APHA).

Joshie, I agree with you mainly. the one thing you didn't mention was that the orginal breeders of the QH, ranchers are very independent and hate with a passion any new regulations that are forced on them. And still are to this day.

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

Well, you may be right and it wouldn't help much with overpopulation (if that was the point you were trying to make. My apologies is you weren't). At least not short term, but it might make a difference in the long run.

Wouldn't it create a higher standard for breeders and ultimately create a different, and frankly higher 'class' of horse overall? There is already some of that classification already, but if they set it in stone that way, I would think the overall quality of your stock would improve across the board as the bar is raised, and the price for western endeavor horses would be driven up eventually. Plus there is something to be said culturally and economically for the focus to become geared toward quality instead of quantity. So, there may over time be fewer horses.

I would add an required standard for in-breeding (or lack there of) as well, to maintain diversity within the different breeds.

Long story short, I'm all for it.
