Someone posted a pic of a stallion on Facebook on a critique page, and I said I thought the stud had an unsightly neck (and head also). Just had no throat-latch to speak of and had a drafthorse size neck. So I posted a photo of an APHA stud that I thought had a nice neck and people pointed out that the photo was of a horse that had had its neck sweated, and that’s why it looked like that.
This is the original stallion that was posted:
so my question: How common is neck sweating for stock horse breeds? Do all stock horse stallions need their neck sweated to look like they have a nice neck? People are trying to tell me that a stud having a draft horse sized neck and no throatlatch is normal since he’s a stud but I want some professional opinions on this.
