Hi again! I am sick and home from school today and board so that is why I am posting so much, I hope no one minds too much.
I have seen several of the older "style" of mares and stallions for sale lately of all lines, not just SE. Many of the body "styles" are different than what the current trend is today. I was wondering how you would choose to breed this type of horse or use it in a modern program. I know there will be a variety of answers.
I personally like what I have seen of the SE's from the 80's and like how they are built. I have noticed our modern body types seem to have a longer neck overall (not just talking about the extreme here), and a more slight body style, as well as a more extreme head.
How would these horses be able to be kept in production if desired to produce a marketable or showable foal?
