    If I took my Wb cutting, he would be referred to as an off breed.
    Not that the cows care but the breeders who go out of their way to produce a 8th gen cutting horse do. It is a sign of respect and...

    Yes, but as a group they can be considered a breed.

    Thanks for the explanations.
    I know some registries will do dna and paperwork and have a vet do identification on a yearling for registration.

    I have to ask, why does a yearling need to go to an inspection?
    I understand a young horse class but usually foal are registered at the dam's side and mares are inspected at 3 years of age.

    I was the kid that rode a $600 dollar grade horse. And there was a bit of "class" issue but now that I think about it, it was mostly on my side. I made assumptions about how people thought of my...

    No one on this board would/should dispute the Tb influence. Everyone knows that.
    And once again, not to be rude but just because a horse was used on a farm does not make it a draft horse. Most...

    I don't see a very different story, just a misunderstanding of what is meant by a farm horse. Rural people had horses that had to do everything, riding and farm work. Many people that don't live on...

    The Canadian Warmblood embraces all the major registries, like the Dutch, also like the Dutch who borrow other registry horses and re labels them as Dutch. They all do that to a point so in the end...

    Wrong.

    In Canada there is a piece of legislation called the Pedigree Act, it governs all animals that have papers. The act has great detail in what is accepted as a breed and how that breed most...

    You are very pessimistic in your view point. I know you have many posts wondering why you have trouble selling horses and I am not sure why that is. But other breeders do sell horses, they are very...

    Many of those people that claim to be able to predict based on conformation are giving examples of successful cases. I doubt any of them would be able to look at a horse and guess it's ability. They...

    I wouldn't even. Video would be much better, showing his gaits and ability. And put him over a couple of small jumps. That will give you an idea, it won't tell you what he might want to do but it...

    Look at comparable foals and what they are getting in the market right now. Is your foal bred...
