I don't think anyone (even me) said they were starved. Under weight, yes. And for a stallion that is used for nothing more than breeding, he needs little more flesh. He isn't a performance horse, top level competitor, or do anything more than sit in a paddock. But for what he is, they are expecting quite a bit in stud fees. So, we just wouldn't do business with someone that likes their horses thin. No one is posting that no one should ever consider breeding to their stallion or buy one of their other horses. It is "to each their own". What is important to one person might not be so important to another. I had originally come across him in the first place when I was doing searches for the perfect breeding for my mom to try for her childhood dream horse. Color was a big factor, but also their conformation and disposition. This particular stallion (though he might be able to produce the color my mom wanted) was not even a consideration. There are plenty out there who wouldn't hesitate to breed to him, and that is their choice. Their mare, their money, not my business.
