Quarter Pet Peeves

I just hate it when Quarter Horses has big muscular bodies and those tiny little noses! Grrr. Sorry it's a big pet peeve of mine. Sure its okay I guess on Arabians but bigger horses...ick. Lol. :roll:

I bet this horse's body is gorgeous bit his head...?


I would much rather see this.


I know these pics aren't very good! What do you guys think?

Yeah, I agree but you mostly only see that in halter Quarter Horses.

I'm sure it is most seen in the bulkier bred horses, like Impressive horses so to say. You can't maximize a noses size but you can with just about everything else.

I never said it was in all the Impressive bred horses. Also I highly doubt she is bred specifically for muscling. Those that have those tiny noses happen to be bred for muscling for halter.

well you did say the impressive horses, and I was just saying that not all impressive horses are like that. Also, neither you nor I was there when her previous owner decided to breed Impress Me Shanon to Skippin Abroad, so neither of us know what she was bred for.

And again, I did not say all Impressive bred horses were like that. Secondly you would know if she was bred specifically for halter because her muscles would totally pop out. Like the horses that are bred for halter have tons of horses that are bred just for muscling all in their lines. Its all the years of breeding all compiled into one huge muscled horse and it just so happens everything got maximized except the nose.

For overall conformation and halter classes, that tea-cup muzzle is considered ideal. It's also what is wanted in the halter classes. The tiny feet, however, are not wanted. Some have them, I have one with it, but for the breed ideal it's not correct. Neither one of these factors are due to only Impressive bloodlines - they are actually seen in multiple bloodlines, including some foundation horses.
