RE: [RC] Endurance "bred" - heidi

My point really is that the "culls" from the halter programs are good old 
"dawgs" that can do anything and are sound.  There is nothing wrong with them 
except that maybe they don't look good in make-up and don't have long enough 
legs, dishy enough head or flat enough hip.  They still have those original 
genetics in them going strong.

Unfortunately, while this is true of some, many (if not most) of the halter 
"culls" still have way too many of the defects being intentionally bred into 
halter horses to make decent athletes.  The further the halter extreme gets 
away from the very useful breed standard, the more this is true.  Count 
yourself lucky to have found one that still managed to throw back to enough of 
the "old" genetics to be serviceable.
