    I think she's just got to 'make the mistake' herself, if she's unwilling to waver from her standpoint. And who know's maybe she'll get lucky and the horse will stay sound for some time; IF she's able to get rid of some of the weight and muscle he may hold up alot better, but as he is currently, he will be VERY uncomfortable as a riding horse, which could make him a very hard to handle horse due to his discomfort.

    This is how Halter QHs are supposed to look. They are supposed to be bulky (muscles) but there must be somthing wrong and different with him because a good halter (that looks like that) should not be for sale for 5500. More like 15000

    I don't think you have to qualify for congress.

    I think he looks like a halter horse.... Right now he's in halter shape but he could be re-fit to ride. He may or may not be trained to ride, if he's a gelding, he probably rides. Looks like a WP horse to me...

    His gigantic frame on tiny feet has probably cause him to be lame. My friend went and saw him and wasnt impressed. She thought she would really like him but he is only greenbroke to ride.

    I find his build gross. I have owned and loved QH my whole life. The halter horses now-a-days are just gross misrepresentations of what the breed should be. **my opinion**

    Inbreeding has NOTHING to do with it. It is a genetic defect that traces soley to Impressive.

    I whole heartedly agree with this; like I said before, I want functionality, as well as beauty...

    Unfortunately, the show 'standards' change even within other show realms as well, and have nothing to do with the actual breed standard...instead seem to have to do more with 'what 'looks' good'...or what's popular in breed type at the time. I personally think that this does NOTHING to enhance the breed at all, and detracts from what the original purpose the animal was bred for. The QH was bred for cattle work, and was raced on the weekends (where he gets his name from)...The horse in this particular thread would NEVER stand up to the rigors of that original purpose. Now QH out of horses like Hollywood Dun It, Rugged Lark, or JAG (CA's stallion) would, and I think that's what a QH horse SHOULD look like.
