	Great. The poor horse had unneccessary surgery once, so let's get even by
operating again. 
	It's not too simple, it's too complicated.
	For starters, you're dealing with 2 different governing bodies--IAHA runs
the showring end, but AHRA is in charge of the regisrty. Now, cropped ears,
throatlatch surgery  or liposuction does not change the fact that a given
horse is who it says it is on its papers. Therefore, there is no reason to
prevent that horse from propagating.
	Why in blazes do we need a rule?
	Why can't people simply refuse to give money for breeding to a horse which
has been altered?
