For what it's worth, I didn't do anything of the sort to your hind end. I simply put forth an opinion, and politely too. If you don't like my opinion, that is your choice, but to suggest that I was out of line in the delivery of said opinion, that is a bit over the top. As for the bit where I said that maybe you should read up more on what inbreeding is, and what the pros and cons are, that is something that EVERY breeder should know about. Inbreeding doesn't cause personality issues, or mutations. It has negatives, yes, but it also has positives. However, in this mare's case, it's moot, as she is not inbred, and the horse in question, Raffles, suffered no ill-effects from his pedigree, as did none of his offspring.
I would be happy to answer any questions you have on the subject of inbreeding, as many here seem to only see it as "incest" and "wrong", when there are benefits to it.
PS - linebreeding and inbreeding are different, and it has nothing to do with the offspring's suitability for their intended purpose.
