No, it's not just you, and it's a real shame.
This morning I found this thread had been removed from the board because it had gotten so far off topic. I spent significant time reading the entire thread so that I could clean it up and put it back, because I didn't want members who were interested in discussing thoroughbreds and their builds to have to miss out.
I explicitly asked that members not discuss the OP or her horses, since this thread, which poses general questions about the builds of thoroughbreds, is not in any way about the OP or her horses, and that is what caused the thread to derail the first time.
Can thoroughbreds be skinny?

And yet, here we are. Again.
I, and the rest of the Horse Forum Team, put a lot of time and energy into trying to keep the Horse Forum a reasonably nice place to discuss horses, and to work with members whose posts tend to do the opposite so that we can strike a balance everyone can be comfortable with. A little consideration and self control on the part of the members we maintain this place for would be much appreciated.
I will remove this thread, again, once its participants have had a chance to read this message.
