His front end looks like a cow...
But its very typical as far as AQHA standards.

Live to ride. Ride to live.

And if he does ride, he won't be riding long!Look at those pasterns! The tiny feet! The absurd overmuscling is the least disturbing thing. That this should be in vogue...your friend should keep looking. This horse is useless and is in for a world of trouble as he ages.

I agree. The only one that benefits from this type of breeding is the owner. That horse will be lame by the time he is 15. I love some big stocky QH's but I like them to have legs to support it.

btw my friend thinks he is 'dreamy' and cant understand why I am not 'in to' him. Gross!

Its just sad. Its almost seems like its a game to them to see how much weight they can pack on those tiny feet before the horse just collapses are they can't walk anymore. Their was a lady they used to board with us and she had this mare who was supposedly a top halter show horse as a three year old and from all that weight stacked onto her feet she developed rather sever laminitis. It saddens me too how when people see a very muscled horse thats lame they automatically think its HYPP because so many people still breed them and just don't understand that they shouldn't breed these horses, yes your going to get a beefcake of a horse but really? Is it worth the risk? Is it really even that ATTRACTIVE to you? My mom's mare is lame from an horrible incident that happened to her as a yearling and one of her supplements we give to her that helps her walk has beet root in it that really makes her show muscle. I swear every time we take her somewhere someone asks if she's impressive bred.

Yuck! Yet another reason I don't do halter. What's the point of breeding for a type of horse that you can't ride? AQHA needs to reconsider their standards. I wish they would go back to looking for foundation type horses.

What's HYPP?

And even my mom says that horse is disproportionate and she doesn't even know a lot about horses. My opinion was stated many times in the above posts.

"And somewhere in the northwoods darkness a creature walks upright. And the best advice you may ever get is: Don't go out at night..."

I was just about to say "He looks like a cow..." but you beat me to it! Haha!

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...
