So, a friend of mine that I know from FB, does halter horses on the Amateur level, but is looking to breed "up" to the top show AQHA show levels. He's been putting feelers out there for a suitable 5 panel neg and NN stud to breed his mare too. He SPECIFIED in his post.....NO NH studs, must be World Champs with World Champ babies. So, some people post options and then 2 wannabees post that with his mare he NEEDS to breed to an NH stud to get a good baby. And if it's a show prospect then a resale, why should he care if he breeds to an NH stud...meaning why should he care if the baby is NH. I was INFURIATED!!!! Here's the response I left and the one I got from one of the yahoos: "Just a little saddened to see a couple people trying to talk you into an NH stud Paul. IMHO, that's irresponsible breeding.....taking the chance on perpetuating a genetic mutation. You don't need NH to have a kick ass halter horse, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise." Like · Reply · 1 · 4 hrs Nancy Olson I'm not trying to talk him into anything, his horse, his money, his decision. I just asked why he was against a nice NH stud." I mean DUH....isn't it obvious why breeding to NH is not good? Some people a 2x4 well-placed across their forehead.
