[RC] Breed Standard - Kat Forst

I am really not trying to start an argument!  I agree that horses should be sound, and able to work.  I was just wondering what everyone else thought. I like the way Fresians are done.  They are judged on their type, and ability to do.  I'm not saying you couldn't register all Arabs, just that perhaps by having stallions, and even mares (since I am a firm believer in the foundation MARE) judge approved for breeding that it could help prevent bad breeding. I know that many people out there know when to breed certain horses, and when not to. But there are also those who just breed if they have the papers! 

Perhaps I should restate myself. I don't think that only certain horses should be ALLOWED to breed, only that certain stock should be APPROVED to breed.  If the horse doesn't meet standards, fine go ahead and breed it if you want.  I just think that having horses judged to the standard, and soundness (I think that is the best way, abitity seems so pin-pointed) would help people to determine when to breed better.

Again, I don't mean to make people all pissed off. I was just trying to test the waters, and I think I blew in a hurrican!
