'Extreme Breeding'

Ffs - how in hell can this be right? :dunno: Why would anyone even want this?

"....However, with the breeders responsible describing it as “a stepping stone to getting close to perfection”, British Equine Veterinary Association president Jonathan Pycock said the horse represented a radical variation on what was normal.

He further warned the nose structure “could put the horse at risk of breathing problems”, while Dr Madeleine Campbell of Equine Ethics Consultancy said: “Any trend towards breeding for extremes of form which might adversely affect normal function must be condemned, on welfare grounds.

This would apply equally to head shape which might compromise the ability to breathe or eat normally or, for example, to extremes of animal size which might compromise the ability to give birth normally.”

I saw that this morning Vam, it's similar to the dogs that have been bred and bred and now have major health problems.

Why they can't leave animals alone, i have no idea.

Horses are beautiful, they don't need anyone mucking about with them.

Aren't they trying to make them like cartoon horses?
Won't it affect their breathing!

That's what's happened to a lot of dogs, their faces are that squashed now thwy can't breath properly.

Bulldogs are one of the breeds most affected.

A family in Linlithgow found someone had made himself comfy in their house, while they'd been out.

A Badger had sneaked in the cat-flap, eaten the cats food and then had a nap in the cats scratcher.
