He says that his stallions are so close to foundation they can not be registered, in fact he claims them to be 3rd generation. He also claims that his appaloosas are gaited. Which is something that people desire and he is the only breeder that has these special close to generation, gaited appaloosas. Some of the things he has told me about appaloosas has already proven false after reading the appaloosa club website.
Now I have never seen them in person, but have seen pictures that he has shown me. The look really bad confirmation-wise and look kinda on the skinny side. He has offered a free breeding to his stallion for my appy mare, but there is no way I am going to do that. I am not even sure breeding her is something I want to do with her and I would never leave her out there as he only does pasture breeding. There is no shelter and barbed wire fencing.
He thinks I am soft on my horses because I give them shelter, blanket them in the winter, and *gasp* call my vet for advice.
I always become skeptical of people who's animals are the "most unique in the world" and "very valuable and desirable" but yet take poor care of them. I just want to know how BS he is telling me, so if anyone knows about the Appaloosa foundation stock I would like to know some about it.
