Very true. I just saw this at a show this weekend and it was heartbreaking. A National Champion scared to death of his handler with the most crooked legs there are, but it's ok; he "meets the standard" because he has the right backing, a famous name, and comes from money..
Not a true representation of the breed at all. I'll stick to Pharas and Crabbets..
