And you still manage to maintain a leadership position in posting on Wilmott too.

Very interesting! "In addition to sequencing the genome of a thoroughbred horse, the researchers also examined DNA from a variety of other horse breeds. These included the American quarter horse, Andalusian, Arabian, Belgian draft horse, Hanoverian, Hokkaido, Icelandic horse, Norwegian fjord horse, and Standardbred breeds. The team surveyed the extent of genetic variation both within and across breeds to create a catalogue of more than one million single-letter genetic differences in these breeds."Some of these breeds would be well-documented in terms of direct lineage and others have been fairly isolated from interbreeding, so they are very pure.A few examples, to illustrate the variety:AndalusianA Spanish breed, sturdy, but elegantNorwegian FjordStocky draft-type breed, note unique mane in white and black, which stands on endHanoverianRefined head, powerful body - a great Sport Horse for jumping and dressage. (Good to work in some pictures of naked horses on an xxx thread.)
