Since we are looking at tiny little feet. Here's Rileys feet. He's not standing very square but you can see them. They've actually grown this summer... some...

I was reading a halter post, a while back, and the halter horse owner actually said that they were not bred to ride. REALLY?? How far has the QH world sunk that they breed horses that are not even usable? Post legs, horrible feet, HYPP, and so much more that makes for a horse I don't even find attractive anymore.

I'm sorry to offend halter people, but your breeding programs/ideals have produced travesties, IMHO.

The huge issue is that until the judges stop pinning them, the breeders will continue to breed and create them. The changes can't begin at the lower levels becuase it's a business. It has to filter down from the top. It's like the peanut roller lope, until the judges started pinning the more forward moving lope, the broken four beat lope continued to be the way to go. These days it's getting better.

I noticed some rule changes in the halter divisions just came down recently so it's getting better but again, it always takes time. With the new rules regarding HYPP things will begin to change but even those are slow to take effect. Eventually HYPP horses will not be elidgeable for registration as breeding stock which means it is not going to be cost effective to breed them.

How is this attractive? I kinda like the bay- without all the bulk he might just make a good looking horse. However... The first looks like Arnold (the Governator) back in the day. His caption should be "I'll Be back!". Well that is if he can stay sound enough to make it?

It has been a loooonnnng time since I have shown halter- and nothing serious just local and 4-h stuff (never won my guy has a big scar on his shoulder from before I got him) But How do these big halter horses trot? They look like they can barely move!

I can't look at the first one until I get home. My computer here is funky like that. The second one, to me, looks like he could be transformed into a riding horse (probably a ranch/cutting horse) but he could drop some of that bulk and be able to move and be useful. Just my opinion.

This is a Yella Fella stallion which I don't think he's as bad as his sire. Still, muscle is nice but too much is useless to me.
