I am an old fashioned horse person. I grew up in the 60's. We were never cruel with a horse or pony. (some people think if you grew up in the 60's, that you had to have been cruel to horses back in those times) I was without a horse for a long time, from 1985 - 2008. I was quite surprised at how different the horse world is now days. I can see how some of it is good and I have to admit I don't know if a lot of it is so good. Seems as if horses are not as sturdy as they used to be: get sick much easier, go lame much easier, and generally over all a lot more delicate. I constantly hear about horses colicing; which was quite rare where I was from. Even quarter horses don't seem to be the same. Much thinner body wise and not as stout. I have been trying to adjust and become modern, but I was told something by a show person the other day that just about knocked me over: some people put false eye lashes on their horses and/or ponies that they are taking to a horse show. It is not uncommon to do that and especially with POA ponies for shows. Where in the world do they buy fake eye lashes for horses/ponies. I've never seen them on any of the horse supply websites nor local horse supply stores. How do they put them on, take them off, etc.
