Regarding the very large horse at the top of the thread, Kid's Classic Style, does anyone know why he's so large?

I believe it is due to a horse carrying HYPP. There are many pictures of such horses on the net. If I am correct, it's a darn good reason to not breed horses who carry it. Some are a great deal worse than the horse shown.

^^ Correct. HYPP causes muscle spasms that create superhulk looking horses. He was probably euthanized after a severe attack.

I understand what you are saying, but I question it.

If someone is breeding horses like this, then they need to know.
If they own a horse like this, then they need to know they can't do x y z as the horse just can't do it. I remember one case of one horse here who looked like he could be in this convo, and we all told her not to jump him, I'd like to think that horse isn't being jumped because of the info given here.

If my horse looked like this, and I didn't know, I'd want to know. I might not want to hear it, but I need to.

Brutal honesty and some folks just can't handle it. Wishy washy society.

I think this thread is a good example of what can be really poorly built horses. Heck I got a long back over muscled blockhead. But he works.

Now if it were to get very nit picky then I could see an issue. But I've seen extremes. Not counting KCS. Possibly re titling this to ,extreme bad conformation, would be better?
