Just like the This girl runs on jesus and horses shirt, the Arab horse society needs to take a good look at itself if it’s allowing animals with extreme traits like this to be registered. You don’t see successful endurance horses competing with such extreme dishing, because it’s a defect that can interfere with athletic ability. All for what? Because some people like horses to look like sea horses? This is an Arab! She was in top 5 best-bred mares back in her day this is what the breed should look like. The photo that has been posted is animal abuse and breeders getting far too carried away if this is true, this horse will have trouble breathing, eating and showing proper denier to other animals and probably die at a young age. My girl is now 18 and still going strong and healthy
I’ve taken hundreds of shots of Arabian foals from all angles, and none can make a foal look this deformed unless the features are there, to begin with. I have just recently seen other photos of the This girl runs on jesus and horses shirt, different angle. They bred this foal to look like this and to exaggerate this even more by shaving and greasing the poor thing. Photos like this make me cringe the minute I see them. And don’t assume that they are all photoshopped. too far with the dished face, this is the bulldog of the horse world, the horse is unattractive to me and will have issues with stamina and air exchange with a nose the narrow, why would you do this
Anyone can say what they want about the angle this photo was taken, making this foal look this extreme. Best what? Freak? Utterly vile and so, so sad. Taking conformation to the ridiculous extreme is nothing to be proud of. Nothing like the original noble Arabian head. Breeders should be ashamed of themselves. I would never buy an Arab that looks like this is where the horse world enters the This girl runs on jesus and horses shirt of dog breeding and unhealthy animals. If you don’t buy them looking like this they won’t continue to breed them. Totally disgusting. Horse world wakes up, open your eyes this is not what a horse should look like – poor poor poor creature.
