Spyder are you 12 yrs old? My last post was definetly not directed at you, unless you can speak/read German and your name is DuffyDuck. I have tried to redirect this thread back to its original content, but you seem to want to keep derailing it. You took my comment about the AM. WB soc. Personally, which I had not intended. Everyone and anyone CAN HAVE THIER OWN OPINION. Your confrontational attitude is immature and totally unacceptable. If you feel the need to get angry, take this mirror and go yell at and lecture yourself.

Everyone is entitled to thier own opinion, I do not agree that the American WB society should name themselves such, they accept any and all breeds, EXCEPT for purebreds. My aunt worked her butt off to breed QUALITY and true to TYPE when she had her Trak. Barn and it took blood sweat and alot of tears to get it right or at least TRY to get it as close as possible to "right". The Am. WB society should be the American SPORTHORSE assoc. BUT that is only MY OPINION and everyone is ENTITLED to such. Is there any possible way to get this thread back on track and stop the bitchfest?

If you're going to attemt to talk to me in German, you might want to find out if I am German. I'm not, I'm British.

Secondly, if you are only interested in the 'purdy horses' why comment on the lines? You're right, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. If you make your own opinion, be prepared for people to despute and debate. If you're going to take it the wrong way, don't underline your posts and put swearwords in it- kids use this site. If you want to express yourself, there is a way and mean.

I think we have pretty much exhausted the subject of Warmblood societies, what counts, what doesn't- so read through the past billion pages if you really want to guys!

I learned some interesting things in this thread.

I hope I can comment on them without derailing the thread again.

I have always understood how the European Warmblood registries worked, and frankly admired them, both for their willingness to allow horses to be in multiple registries if each of the registries agrees that the horse has desirable traits, and the rigorous testing a horse must undergo to be approved breeding stock.

But I never really thought about the difference between registered and approved before. So if I were starting a registry and was trying to breed for a certain type, it makes sense to register as many horses as I possibly can - all I'm doing is collecting information in a database (bloodlines and traits, genotype and phenotype) , and frankly, collecting money from people who want to register their horses and have another venue in which to compete. Particularly in the case of geldings, the quality of the animal registered isn't all that material.

Now, when it comes to APPROVAL, ie, approved as breeding stock, and representative of what you want to acheive in a breeding program, that's critical. You need to be as rigorous as possible in what stock you approve to breed, the more rigorous you are, the sooner you will have an indentifiable type.

I really don't know anything about the AWS, but it seems to me that criticizing them for registering less than stellar horses is completely beside the point. The real litmus test of their value as a registry is the quality of the horse they approve for breeding.

I suspect that when the European warmblood registries first opened, the followed a similiar strategy - register everything, including Draft types and TBS, record their pedigrees and key traits, but only approve for breeding the horses that have the characteristics or the traits the registry deems desirable. Makes sense to start off that way.

It will still be decades before the AWS produces a recognizable type, but hey, the German warmblood registries have been around for centuries, right?

That's all, please go back to posting lots of photos. I think my favorite warmblood is the Selle Francais, would love to see some photos of them.

Oh, and in keeping of the spirit of the thread, here's one of my favorites:



Boeskoolboy, a KWPN stallion that stood at Virginia Tech for a while. A lot of people locally have horses by him. Tend to be incredible athletes, with interesting dispositions that need some tact and diplomacy to train. Rode a great big mare by him that jumped everything just like that photo. You needed a seat belt and auxillary oxygen to ride her over fences.
