This goes back to what I as taught in 4-h, many moons ago. When you look at a horse, especially one to purchase or as a breeding candidate, you start from the ground up. What I love about Arlene's coverage of our breed's heritage and the major US and international shows is that she doesn't sugar coat. Whether it's a discussion about the winners, or others who deserve special mention, we are taught to see the horse as a function of its individual pieces. When she is able, she even somehow gets pics of ancestors to these horses who we have lively discussions about so we can see where the good and bad comes from - how breeding decisions can be lessen or magnify a fault.
Our breed is known for being a beautiful face . . . why not work toward our breed being known for clean legs and sound, correct way of going?
Good post... couldn't "like" for some reason...
