I show dairy goats. When we do conformation shows, which is basically what a halter class is- the animal that wins is the one that fits the breed standard best. A dairy goat's breed standard is written to describe a doe that is best suited towards producing milk. Every part of her body flows together to produce milk. Form, following function.

Therefore, you would think the halter horses that are winning should be those with near perfect conformation to do the jobs that the breed was created for.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

Anyone else find it ironic? We banned slaughter in the u.s. And yet we are breeding halter horses that are so beefy and useless that they would go great as meat products for humans. I wonder how many people would throw a fit if someone publically suggested slaughtering the porkheads (aqha "champion" halter horses) since they can't do anything anyway. I bet the breeders would trim them up real quick if there meatbags were threatened with consumption instead of earning money. Then we could go back to the way things were with functional, versatile quarter horses and way more food for us!
Sorry to be crude but the irony is sort of sickly funny.

they arent "useless". And that makes whatsoever no sense, because even if people suggested slaughtering horses(like you) they couldnt do it because it is not personally the slaughteres horse, unless they wanted to buy the horse for thousands of dollars, but the meat price would be to high. And this slaughtering suggestion would have no effect on the beefiness of the qh's because you can't say "that horse is too fat, im going to take him away from the owner and slaughter him".

Do you have any examples of a ASH, Wild_Spot?
I have plenty :]

The stud that Smrobs posted have some really nice horses - One of my favourite young stallions is there Silverthorn Shotgun and they have quite a nice Palmers Fort Abdul descendant called St Ronan Abdul Smoke.

Shotgun:



St Ronan:



Palmers Fort Abdul is a stallion who very strongly stamps his get. I am a big fan of his sire sons/grandsons.

One of my favourite ASh stallions, a Palmers Fort Abdul son, and now living in canada and competeing successfully in reined cowhorse is Cadabra:



A young colt called Jarendan Just Is who is a Palmers Fort Abdul grandson (Or great grandson, can't remember):



An older, highly successful stallion by The Ranch Abbeys Top Gun, Binnia Gunslinger:



A Palmers Fort Abdul grandson, who I would like to breed my mare to one day, called Waylon J Justice:






A young campdraft sire I really like called Kneipps Conray:



A very famous campdraft sire, now deceased, Warrenbri Romeo:



A young sire from the same stud, Warrenbri Cooper:

Stockhorses are mostly a mix of TB with Walers and bush ponies. The ponies and walers gave them their cow sense and agility while the Tb gave them their more refined looks, speed, and some stamina. There is also a bit of Arab mixed in there for stamina also.

Agree. Though when I looked at him I could just imagine him excelling in almost anything he was put to.
Absolutely beautiful. If my friend didn't already have another stallion lined up, I would be telling her about him.



Oh and wild_spot - STOCKHORSE LOVE!!! Simply amazing breed. A favorite of mine, second only to the Arab :)

^ Ditto - Arabs and ASH are my top breeds. Also the only two I happen to own, lol!

And a good comparison - this is Cadabra, shown above, decked out in his western gear and competeing at working cow horse:
