“Solid” doesn’t even begin to cover it

Kelvins Prissy Chex is a solid built palomino mare by Doc Hollybug Gold, a son of AQHA point earner Barlon who also won NCHA money. This mare goes back to the greats of Doc Bar, Mr San Peppy, Hollywood Gold, and Bueno Chex. She is broke to ride, stands 15.2 plus and is over 1200 lbs. She has been broke to ride and produced some nice foals. Can breed to one of our stallions.

Breed: Quarter Horse
Gender: Mare
Birth Date: Jan 1, 2002

This poor mare looks like she has the body of a (large) draft horse on the legs of the quarter horse she supposedly is.  Her neck is also on the short side, which by itself isn’t the worst conformational flaw we’ve ever seen, but couple that with the “solid” body and it is an aesthetic nightmare!

The ad says that the new owner “can breed to one of our stallions” – to this we say, very sarcastically, YIPPEEEE!  We can breed another draft body onto quarter legs!  SCORE!  This is a prime example of a breeder that expects the stallion’s genes to do all the work and believes it’ll overcome the mare’s shortcomings.  Presuming, of course, that their stallions are quality specimens of the breed.  It’s either that or their stallions are crap too and they don’t know any better, which opens this discussion up to a whole other slew of questions, foremost among them being how many times and from what height were these people dropped on their heads in their formative years?

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again – just because it has a uterus, doesn’t mean it should have a baby!
