Cat idk it just seems odd to me! never heard of a QH under 14.3 really. i doubt they are unheard of but definitely more on the rare side. especially here.

Strange - 14.3 is probably the average around here. Take a look at some of the cutting and reining lines - they can be shorter. I know several of High Brow Cats offspring are around 14 hands - give or take. The breeders of the "foundation bred" horses also tend to breed shorter QHs.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

I was cruising craigslist and saw an ad with several stallions for sale/lease/at stud.

Here are the pictures:



A gelding on their sale page


How idiotic does one get to put their child on a stallion, without a bridle or helmet or sit them on the stallion while no one is holding on? Does that really prove how gentle a stallion is? Because to me it just looks like a stupid person looking to get their child injured!

a saddle is no rivets and a quater horse...
A 13.3hh Quarter horse isn't too bad. It was the 17 hand one that shocked me. I can say that I have never seen a purebred quarter horse that was that tall. Mind you, they do say quater horse, might be a new breed. lol.

yeah 17 hand 'quater' horse might be a new breed! bet the sale expensive... though the quater horses do seem pretty common around this area on craigslist lately..

Haha yeah it might prove how gentle they are... for the 2 seconds it took to take the picture.. What's the bet atleast one of those poor kids fell off during that... erm "photo shoot".
That's the most popular way to end up with disabled kids or get rid of your "burdens" all together lately, haven't you heard? It's all the rage!! (I'm kidding, it's discusting, I don't even let my 6yo sister on the 38" mini without a helmet and bridle, let alone a stallion)
Gorgeous horses though I must admit.
Imagine what would have happened if the little girl on the grey sneezed and kicked his flank, both of them would have been LAUNCHED.

honestly sure it might be a little rough and unheard of. but i'm gonna go against the majority here and say that if i trusted the stallion like i do my mare. then i'd put a kid on it. i put kids on my mare bareback like that grey stallion. and she's been properly desensitized so if the kid sneezed and kicked her flank.. dun dun dun! she'd stand there! so if he's had the proper desentizing he'd stand there too! sure he's a rip roaring crazy stallion but that doesn't make him any different temperment wize if he was properly raised and handled. and helmets are an individual thing. i ride without helmets and the 3-6 year olds that ride my horses ride without helmets! but thats only because that was their mothers choice.. and i know several stallions so well behaved you can ride bareback and in a halter with the stally's nose shoved up under a mare's tail and he wont think twice about it. and thats the way it should be. i say good on them for raising stallions the proper way. although i'll prolly get bashed a bit for all that ah well i stated my opinion lol.

I agree with you! Not all stallys are crazed humping machines! If trained properly they are just as good as any other well trained horse.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

My opinion has nothing to do with me thinking all stallions are "crazed humping machines" or even slightly more or less good natured than any other horse in the world.

The top photo of the kid sitting on a bridleless horse trotting around a round pen is nothing short of dangerous even if the horse is their 40 yo school horse.

The second photo is not much better because no one is holding on to the reins.
