I never though about it like that. It is kind of abuse if you purposely breed a horse that you know will be lame and have conformation faults. "But it will win for a couple years and breed a few times to make me more money then it will die because of consistent lameness issues and inablilty to really be a horse." Why?...

When ever there is manipulation of a perfect creature look for the root of the evil- $$$Money$$$ If there were no money or high status that came along with breeding horses like that then there wouldn't be any (of course this is true for all disciplines not just halter-not to say that they are all bad every discipline has its good and bad points). Gotta love greed!

I am stunned ! Is that really what QH halter horses look like? I do not show, so I don't see halter classes very often. Those horses are ridiculous though, why would you actually WANT small legs and feet?! Around here, people usually regard bigger feet and joints as better. The legs on those horses look comparable in size to those of my arab gelding....except he is 14.3 hands and about a quarter of the size...personally I love his large, strong feet and good bone substance.

I agree Scharm, I haven't been to a halter show in years and had no idea these monstrosities of nature were what was winning now. They are just gross, nothing is in proportion on them. I have a non-registered Morab with feet like saucers, LOL but they fit her size, she has a neck like tractor, and nice hind quarters. I was kidding the other day that if I 'roped' the barn, I figured she could pull it over, but she doesn't look like these things. Just nice, regular definition. Ugh

No fun if you get to edit them before we get to read them and enjoy those moments along with you.

No, I read ScharmLily's post as "is that what QHs really look like" and so I went into this whole big thing about what real QHs look like, pictures and all....until I re-read hers and saw the "is that what halter QHs really look like" so my post would have been off topic and pointless.

We would have enjoyed the pictures though.

Well, this is the most important one that I posted. I believe something like him should be close to the QH breed standard.

Also, I simply adore everything about him and it is my dream to someday have a mare up to his quality and the money for a stud fee.

He is very handsome.

Hard to believe that the amount of muscling he has is not enough for the halter breeding people.
