Same breed?[edit]

Are the Yorkshire Grey Horse and the Yorkshire Grey Horse the same breed? The latter lists the former’s name as an alternate name. Cavalryman V31 (talk) 14:14, 15 October 2018 (UTC).

The wikilinks go to the same article - did you find an alternate/modified name or spelling of it? Atsme✍🏻📧 18:41, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
Wait, I see what you were referring to - Yorkshire Coach Horse. No they are not the same. The Yorkshire Grey Horse is a grey Shire whereas the Yorkshire Coach Horse is a Cleveland Bay or hybrid of a Cleveland bay. I haven’t studied the articles but at first glance, they need a workover.

Haha, yes I had meant to type Yorkshire Coach Horse, one shouldn’t edit whilst exhausted (I was up in the middle of the night trying to soothe a crying baby). I didn’t think a three part CB would be reliably grey, thank you. Kind regards, Cavalryman V31 (talk) 20:13, 15 October 2018 (UTC).

Image change[edit]

I changed the project image in the userbox to represent a bit more diversity in horse breeds/breed types. If there are any objections, I won't mind one bit if you revert it. Atsme✍🏻📧 02:40, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Good job - have one question for you on the TP of the article. Atsme✍🏻📧 13:41, 24 November 2018 (UTC)

Writing about breeds[edit]

After two new-ish editors ended up at WP:ANI in the same week for breeds-related disruptive editing (and one topic-ban was issued), I've expanded a bullet-point list of advice for them into an essay: Wikipedia:Writing about breeds.

It provides a crash course in how to write about breeds the Wikipedia way. It's mostly for new editors, but might be of use to some more experienced ones who have not written about breeds before or thought much about how our WP:P&G apply to the topic area.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  07:52, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Good job, Mac!! Thank you! Atsme✍🏻📧 03:00, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I'd written so much to help two particular editors it seemed silly to not essay-ize it.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  01:32, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

Input is requested at Talk:Bucking horse#Merger proposal. Thank you. Atsme✍🏻📧 03:01, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Capitalization of names of standardized breeds[edit]

FYI: Pointer to relevant discussion elsewhere.

Please see Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)#RfC on capitalization of the names of standardized breeds.

This is a neutral RfC on a question left unanswered by MOS:LIFE (on purpose in 2012–2014, pending "later discussion"). It is now later, and lack of resolution of the question has held up MOS:ORGANISMS in draft proposal state for 6 years.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  22:03, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
