RE: [RC] does weight really matter? - Kelly

So in this statement are you saying that a horse that
has been pulling a plow to seed a field will be less
as healthy or more healthy than a pleasure show horse
that only walks, jogs, & lopes?

Subject: RE: [RC]   does weight really matter?


the one think i believe that might be  overlooked here
is that 2 horses 
equal size and equal conformation may down the road
show the effects of 
carrying more weight and by that i a mean how that
horse carrying the 
weight holds up physically in the long run.

think about it, if you have 2 humans of equal
size/body type carrying 
packs (one lighter one heavier) for years who do you
think is going to 
arthritis etc first?

for the moment, or a few years, you may be correct
that "weight doesn't
matter" but i think for the horse in the long run it
