    As for the original question, I think well of Trakehners ;) I appreciate seeing a thread discussing breed attributes and stigma that is built on contributions of fact rather than hearsay.

    Conformation cannot be judged without consideration of the horse's condition.

    Bone structure can, yes, to a degree. Conformation is more than bone structure. But even some points of bone...

    You are right, it isn't a perfect analogy because there aren't any true parallels to the heart of the debate.
