classic....I wonder what its bloodlines are, if one or both parents achieved FEI levels, or just a freak of nature this one.

Great form! I bet he does a mean trot extension too.

From what I understand, his mother was a total b*tch and never made it to the show ring.

He looks like more of an old format type to me!

Very good jumping form....but I wonder if he will have the speed and ridability to make time....after all, it is more than just scope.:D

I think George Morris would approve of its form over fences, and its very expressive!

Love him! Look at the rotation of his shoulder. I can't see why this animal could not do anything you might want to do.

I still think he'd make a nice derby horse. Great form with just enough "attitude"

I really don't care for ones that are an odd colour. The young grey I have is a stretch for me. Give me a plain bay anyday!

Dang, that expression "his knees are up by his eyeballs" so rarely LITERALLY describes a jumping effort. :eek: :lol:

From the Dept of Credit Where Credit is Due: some backstory (http://news.bbc.co.uk/earth/hi/earth_news/newsid_8318000/8318226.stm) on the photo.

So yes, he's very much a hunter.

(But that's a spindly, upright, narrow gate with no option. Must be a Mark Phillips course.)

TB or not TB?

Forget eventing, sell him as a hunter!!!

I heard he already had a run-out and this was his second attempt . . .

OnIslandTime, you should really consider hiring a professional course builder. The days of homemade jumps are long gone, and have no place in today's competitive environment. Jumping from concrete is extremely dangerous also. On the upside your "mount's" ears are up and he looks to be enjoying his job, even though his knees are minutely unlevel. His coat is in good condition and his white markings scrubbed brilliantly clean.
Sincerely, George M.

Well, he looks scopey enough for eventing or jumpers. I'll bet he's a great mover! :lol::lol:
