OK keep it nice in here! This is left off from the Maran thread that got OT. See on this link on the bottom of page 3: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=155981&p=3 To review what it was said previously, the horse breeds have been going downhill due to fads, money and political reasons. have you seen Arabians looking like Saddlebreds, QH looking like TBs, and Paso Fino horses looking like a fat tank with no recognizable traits in the breeds? All of us have seen it today and this is the forum for your rants and whats going on with the breed and why they did it. Pasochicken, your stallion is beautiful but I never saw a flea bitten grey. I know of Plebeyo and it was said he was a beautiful horse. The worse Paso I have seen PERSONALLY is Balisarda LTD, nasty a$$ of a horse and glad the owner gelded him before he would do harm to anybody else, no wonder for his stall to be lined with electric fence! Most Pasos today are so darn pumped up and getting the horse on the sounding board and stop there, is a no no and it was all show off! Hated that! As for Arabians, they dont look like the classic Arabians I used to know and loved. They look like Saddlebreds! So are the Morgans, looking like a fancy peacock of Saddlebreds rather than the "draft" type that I adore and the head you can tell right off it shows "Morgan" Now why are the breeds are getting waaaaaaay off from the original classic type of their own????????????? Place your rants here!
