I LOVE the horse in the first original post! Looks like he could be a great dressage horse possibly. ;)

Agreed. Which is exactly WHY I think people don't like him - I personally think he's gorgeous as a horse, but he DOES look a little bit more like a Warmblood. So if someone really loves QH's, they're not going to like him because he doesn't even look like the QH's we're used to seeing.

I absolutely detest 99% of halter horses. In just about any breed. The idea to me that you could have a horse that's a representation of the breed and yet useless as a performance horse is just mind boggling to me. Breeding non-functional animals is the height of human arrogance and absurdity. I like NATURAL muscle:

Everytime I see a pic of Sir Cool Skip, I want to barf. He is HYPP N/H and just a gross representation of EVERYTHING that's wrong with any idiot who'd ever breed a HYPP horse.







In the nicest way possible, thank god he's dead. He died this year at the age of 17 - any bets on HYPP complications?

He doesn't even look like a QH.


Probably why I don't like him.

Idk I like the fact that he's more of an "english" type almost than your typical "western" style quarter horse. I think this kind of breeding is what can help keep the quarter horses so popular. You can get a quarter horse to your liking, whether that means a reiner, halter horse, pleasure horse or dressage prospect and it makes them even more appealing to a greater audience. A quarter horse like that would give dressage enthusiasts even more reason to look at possibly getting a quarter horse instead of just warmbloods and thoroughbreds. I don't know where I'm really going with this but yeah...I like him. XD

Personally, I love my FQH mare. I need to get a side shot of her.



I do like the looks of the grulla stallion.

Good GOSH, WHAT is that thing? Its like the creapy looking Hulk of the equine world, DISGISTING! Was there to much radiation where he was bred or what?

Nope, just a l'il ol' thing known as "lulz, HYPP GIVES BIG MUSCLES AND S/HE'S ONLY A CARRIER SO WE SHOULD BREED ANYWAY."

I think the reason I like the first horse so much and a lot of you don't, is that you are used to seeing functional, bulldog type QH.

Here in AUS there aren't that many really bulky QH out working or competeing - It's the finer horses like in the OP who have more economical movement and expend less energy and have less bulk to try and manouvre that tend to excel.
