big breeders

I have just returned from looking at a horse from a "small breeder".  I went because someone mentioned he needed "rescued" and he was bred by a "big famous farm" which I know has quality horses.  The horse had a cut becoming infected, a foal was so torn up if not taken drastic care of immediately should be put down, corrals were never cleaned. .. They had no intention of doctoring the foal "because they couldn't catch it".  And this horse I went to look at will be ruined because of lack of care on a cut on his leg.
On the other hand, I have bought a Magness horse in the past and he came with complete shot, worming, and farrier records.  I would not hesitate in the least to buy a Magness horse again...he was outstanding.  I could mention other "big farms" where I would buy horses from in a second.
The point is, "what is one man's ceiling is another man's floor" and I am VERY GLAD these breeders don't care for the type of horse that makes great endurance horses!!
