    Agree whole heartedly. It's like collecting or hoarding of another variety, and amassing horses is dangerously easy.

    Europe has a higher 1:1 quality ratio because they just don’t keep ones that aren’t good enough. Our culture does not support culling - if that's understood as slaughter. The fallout from this, is...

    Fair comment, and maybe the word 'prospect' needs to be attached to every mention of 'upper level' describing those youngsters. I think these terms have been adopted because it's harder for jumper...

    Rubbish.
    Absolute nonsense. Genetics selects randomly during its next production, no matter how carefully we try to control it.

    I don't have a pic of her but he said the filly is truly lovely to look at, but had a poor jump - which is how we got into the debate.

    I would stress that breeders think and plan based on generations, and that quality horses are much less a fluke or 1+ 1 = 2, as people assume!

    I haven't read all the feedback but I bred a compact, fine boned TB mare that sounds a bit like yours to Apiro and had a filly. The only reasonable comparison was the older Coromino (gelding)...
