I think it would be really interesting to see photos of different horses being strain bred and explanations given of how those horses are continueing to express given strain traits inheritant with whatever strain qualities the animal is bred from.
Maybe, maybe not
This style of question would tend to foster the traditional
thinking that phenotype is name-linked. Phenotype is gene linked and it depends on which genetics are "in play" in any given individual (regardless of the name(s)). Phenotype being the outward expression of the inner genetics. What would be good to see, in addition to or instead of, are the photos of Arabians that don't ook like
their strain names ~ either in an exacting way or less.
