Top 3 things that should simply be outlawed.

1. Breeding horses that are HYPP N/H or HYPP H/H.

2. Breeding horses that are Herda N/HRD or Herda HRD/HRD.

3. Not only soring, but also stacks, chains, and pads used to create the horrific, unnatural movement known as the "Big Lick" in Tennessee Walking Horses.

I've been saying it for years. If AQHA, APHA and all the stock breed associations had quit taking registrations for horses bred from the affected lines (after HYPP & HERDA were discovered of course), those genetic disorders would have been irradicated. Unbelievable that some people even brag about their horse being 'Impressive' bred. I had a friend who bragged her horse was Impressive 'top & bottom'! WTF??? Great....HYPP AND inbred! ITA with your post!!!

Absolutely, posi-tutely, 500% agree!!!! Especially all that soring mess in the gaited horses. It's sad and infuriating all at the same time!
