What use besides trying to lay on beef and fat to create a colossal mess of a horse would they have? Obviously they are conformationally defective and there is NO way the porkbag beef horses could possibly compete in anything besides a class where they stand still.

My horses could run circles around one of those sad, pathetic and lame horses. I'm sorry, I know you love your horse, but he isn't what I'd even consider a "porkbag". I'm talking about the toothpick legged blobs.

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.

While it is true however that some halter horses get so huge and over muscled that they can barely move. Most halter horses can be muscled down and reconditioned to become nice riding horses. I've seen many of them.

Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

I agree. There are also horses out of halter breeding that are never conditioned up to show at halter which are performers from day one. There are several examples of Appaloosa stallions I can think of who were "halter bred", who won big at halter themselves, and who sire(d) winning halter horses, but also sire(d) winning performers under saddle. From the 70's Goer, The Executive, from the 80's and 90's Dreamfinder, Impressive Andrew, up into the past decade Privatecollection, Maids Dream, Always Dignified.....

Eastowest, here is another pretty good example of the type of horse you are talking about. This stud was a halter champion, but he was also shown in senior WP and calf roping. Unfortunately, he never had the chance to sire any foals, he died when he was young (they claim blister beetles but to this day, I swear he was killed) and the one mare that he was bred to died of colic while she was preggo. Very sad all around.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Sorry to bring this up again - But I found another one!

Now he is paint bred, but he also won supreme halter at an all breeds western state show:

I sometimes see cattle at pasture and literally think they look delicious. Shining coats, rippling muscles that look like they would be perfectly marbled. . . . That's what Carribian Kid reminded me of. Not that I am advocating slaughtering halter horses- But my first thought really was "that'd be good eating"!
I really like the ASH as well- I'd never heard of them before until a post of Wild Spot's awhile back.
