I'm sorry but I don't see how people can NOT be too embarrassed to post pictures like this; In a mud hole, or the ones of horses for sale in a junk yard, or in a knee high barb wire fallen apart shed....

Granted I would not keep a horse like the one above in a situation like he is in... but I REALLY wouldn't be posting him for sale for all the world to see in my filthy care!

Heck the ignorance of some people makes me shudder.
yeah didnt you know, they throw color? If you have a great color and you breed to a good mare, it will have pretty decent confo.Im 14 how old are you? Please have some class and don't be rude. A yearling will even out, if you didnt know.

Just becausr it throws color does not give him a reason to br kept a stud. Yes he is a cute guy but he is no where near breeding quality.

Pish, that whole breeding to improve on the parents thing is soooo 20th Century!
didnt you know its not all about the dad. The ignorance and rudeness of people. He will even out, how long have you lived on a breeding farm and had babies every summer? Not that many I can tell,probally not ever. Me since I was born.That is the only real problem here.the back,many horses have that,actually most cutting and reining horses do. Learn your stuff before you bash others please.

Yes, it's not all about the dad. But, the sire is AS important as the dam. I have to agree that this horse does not strike me as a breeding quality animal. I am fairly certain, even though I have zero experience in breeding. But, it is just my opinion, and that's why I love horse forum; I get to have an opinion here.

You do to. And my opinion , differeing from yours, in not "bashing".
Easy does it, ok?

I have no doubt your stud threw good babies. She made it sound like that you were breeding soley due to his color , and maybe that was not the case. IN any case, you got good babies, right? That's cool. I am sure you have seen cases where people lose common sense and breed solely for color , when the stud has a poor conformation and end up with a poor result? It does happen, doesn't it?
I am not of a breeding background, but I hear this happens quite a lot. As long as there are people who will buy for color above confo.

Yes it has happened. But with a high butt, it is in no way a deal breaker, and there isnt anything majorly wrong.
