And I thought the Spanish breeding stock at the county show were hefty...
How on earth do they keep all that muscle on a brood mare o_O
Might a few steroids be involved, or is it just breeding run over-the-hill crazy? Posted via Mobile Device
Omigosh, what is this? Another example of selective breeding by lunatics? That's not even good in cattle. Imagine being born an Arnie by default. Is this the special new salami-making breed???
Nature doesn't produce whole populations of deformed individuals. It takes human effort to make that happen. Is it just because they can? Or do they actually think it looks good, and aren't thinking of the consequences?
They look so disgusting, I wouldn't even want to eat them! Nasty!
What I don't understand is, why can't well conformed horses actually show in halter? Like say you have an outstanding performance horse. He is probably also built pretty good, right? Why can't that kind of horse win in halter? Why have a horse with bizarre proportions that is only good at standing around? Why not have a horse that can actually work also win at halter? Horses that can perform are also beautiful! They should be doing both.
People have a really warped sense of "pretty." It would be one thing if these horses were pretty but could do little else. But they are not even pretty. They are really grotesque looking.
Quarter Horses are a great breed......but I really have to wonder what people have done to them lately.
Halter Quarter Horses are an example of why I am not against breeding grade horses. Take just about any grade horse out of anyone's yard and it will be better put together than these horses people are breeding on purpose. Care should be taken when breeding horses. But as long as people think THIS is some kind of conformation standard I just don't know what to say.
