She knows where to find the pictures of all the good ones but I found a site with several that I thought were really pretty.

They mostly look like AppendixQH's to me. If there were a comparison. I love them! They look to be every bit, if not more, versitile than the AQH.

Yep, it is like they took the very best aspects of the QH and the very best aspects of the TB and mixed them all into one breed.

I love the looks of Australian Stock Horses. I have a horse book with a gorgeous picture of a stallion.

ASH's are a mix of Waler and Thoroughbred. Walers were local stock used and bred for working sheep and cattle. They were named after the New South Wales province where they were mostly bred.

He looks so muscled up that he is having a hard time moving his back legs. At least he's N/N I guess.

The legs are the foundation of a horse and it's shock system for when it is moving around. Larger feet help to absorb the shock of motion and provide more surface area for the pressure to be spread out, the angle of the pasterns is the horse's concussion absorber. For a horse to have pasterns straight up and down, every bit of concussion from every stride is going straight from their hooves to their joints with no relief. I am battling that right now with a couple of horses that I have. One of my customer mares has very upright pasterns and fairly small, flat feet for her body size. I am having a very hard time keeping her sound for training. Also, my horse Jessie is 16 hands, probably weighs close to 1200lbs but his pasterns are fairly straight and when my brother (farrier) looked at his feet the other day, he said they are probably a size 00. A horse that size should wear no less than a 1, preferably a 2. No wonder the poor guy is unsound for riding at age 12. Breed whatever muscle you want, just make sure the horse has the support system and legs to functionally support it. The muscle they are breeding on some of them needs draft legs to support it, but then it wouldn't be a QH any more I guess.

Amen. I always thought halter was suppose to be about showing horses with the best conformation, but all the halter horses have these straight legs and teeny tiny feet (and teeny tiny and upright feet seem to be spilling over into the WP/HUS world too), how is this showing the best conformation for a stock horse? They look like they would be like riding pogo sticks, and would be lame after an hour of any type of work.
