"fugly" and "worthless".....I guess you are entitled to your rant. We don't all think the same horses are beautiful. I am pretty sure there is someone out there who would think yours or mine are pretty ugly too! (papers don't prevent ugly, I am afraid).
I do not agree with this type of just random breeding, altho, mine are both pretty random, and pretty **** special. (one is a PMU).
I prefer not to judge confirmation from pics like these. And, I prefer not to be quite as judgemental either.
I just can't stand seeing breedings like this. There was a beautiful little AQHA filly at the last horse sale I went to. Really just a stunning little chestnut overo with a dainty little face. Stunted, poor condition, and badly cow hocked. The sale before that, a really adorable pony mare with 'genie feet'. Could hardly walk. A stud colt, badly bred, six months old, some bad faults (straight pasterns, toed out) that was rescued for $25.
You see 'free fillies, cheap colts, cheap stallions
" on Craigslist here all the time. Stallions usually come with a "makes cute colts" guarantee. Ugh. Sure the studs cute, but he'd make for a beautiful gelding.
I'm actually rather fond of Curly horses, I used to keep Rex rats and just love that soft wavy fur. I wish their manes and tails wouldn't be so scraggly, but they are rather interesting horses.
If your going to breed horses, at least put a little effort into it. Get some half way decent stock with some papers on them so that the foals can be at least registered. Papers don't make the horse, but they mean a lot to many potential buyers who maybe even want to show the horse. Don't pick a colt as your 'future herdsire' because he's cheap. Don't get free/cheap mares from where ever and breed them to make 'Sooper Expensive Rare Pewnies'.
Makes me think of Sammy with his huge head, long back, and straight shoulder. Fine temperament, sure, but just imagine the kind of parents required to produce such a colt. How did he end up? Starved and overridden. Completely avoidable if he wouldn't have been bred in the first place.
Thoroughbreds for example, one can safely say that 25,000-35,000 foals are born each year, with an average of 30,000. Those are just the reported live births. Now add that to all the other breeds producing live offspring every year.
Do you really need to make more crossbred, poorly
bred horses? Not to mention, in a state where there is no market for them?
. The 'average' child-proof horse of good age is having a hard enough time finding a home, and those are often times damned fine horses to boot.
Why not breed chickens? Or rabbits? Or ducks, peacocks, pigeons? At least you can eat whatever surplus you have.
