Keep Your Eyes On The Prize
If you are interested in preserving nearly extinct strains of Colonial Spanish horses, or any other heritage livestock, the first thing you should do is recognize that your time and energy are limited.
Don't waste either.
And especially do not waste them on activities that are counter productive to those efforts. One of the most counterproductive and time wasting activities one can do is to engage in divisive bickering on the internet about squabbles concerning names, titles, and definitions. If you want to do so you can find people who will happily engage you in endless squabbles about how many angels can dance on the head of a needle.
Or you can take that time to accomplish something meaningful.
Build up, don't tear down.
Encourage, don't discourage.
Unify, don't divide.
Work, don't just talk.
Work closely with those who share your goals and completely ignore those who do not.
