Also keep in mind, show titles dont always make a prize animal of any kind..
Point in case, Arabiam Magnum Pscye (sp of last bit?) many many halter titles, has had cosmetic surgery..and is not conformationaly fit to be a riding horse...and yet he is one of the number one stallions in our arabian industry..I wont breed to him, or any of his kids, til their backs shorten up, their necks tie in better...ext. I breed for function in my animals..
another point as well, temperment has alot to say as well. I look at Temperment, Conformation, THAN titles...on ANY of my animals, Horse, Dog or Cat, when i am going to breed...
that being said I will be showing my persians, and my basset and my horses compete..but..still stateing..titles doesnt always mean "Prize" or "best"
