Ok blumagic, we see your point. and im sure blu is a great horse. i use to have a barrel racer named jw who was backyard bred. he had more confirmation faults than you can count. and he ahd no mane, just a mohawk. there extremely deep scars on his face. he was definitely abused, and due to the fact that he didnt have papers and was inbred and crossbred, he was backyard bred. we spent 150 dollars on him, had we not bought him he would be dog food. but most horses right now arent lucky enough to have someone to buy him. just look at horses for sale in Ohio on, there never used to be 1900. lots of those horses wont find good homes. there are way more horses than owners. and big breeding farms were mentioned. im not for them either, but at least they think it through and try to have good offspring. for instance, a well bred cutting horse will find a good home. even if it isnt a cutting horse, it will be a reiner, penner, roper, ect. a backyard bred horse that has poor bloodlines and a terrible build is going to have a hard time finding a good job. maybe it will get lucky and someone will have the money to keep it around, but right now not many people can do this. if im wrong let me know, but i think this is a pretty reasonable argument.

I think the articles intensions are good but I don't think using the term backyard breeder is a great idea. Peoples opinions of what that means vary. Maybe instead of backyard breeders you could say irresponsible or uneducated breeders.

Lol calm down BluMagic! Don't take everything so personal I wasn't attacking anyone. I'm sure Blu is a great horse. He looks beautiful in your avatar! I'm just making a point of the less lucky horses. But you can't tell people to slow down the breeding for a while, it's just not going to happen.
