what do you guys think?
I personally think his conformation is just absolutely PERFECT for the big jumpers. His only flaw would be his larger ears, but that won't matter much with his spectacular jumping form. He has begun free jumping and is already jumping his own height. He is SOO INCREDIBLY careful with his hind end, its ridiculous! He is going to be such a stunner!! unfortunately he was gelded as a yearling so he will not be stud material
i mean ..look at this hind end!! WOW!!
this face will be famous soon enough!

It's like looking at a young Sapphire!

I love him!!! What scope and alertness. I'm hoping mine will be able to the same. Best of luck with that winner! :lol:

Big ears are a sign of intelligence:winkgrin:!

World Equestrian Games/ World Cup - there you go for sure!!!!!
definite "FEI" prospect

Good luck finding fly ears that fit! :D

With that conformation he could do very well in Hunter Under Fences. :D

Yowza! The look of eagles for sure. :)
Have you thought yet about what color of coat to go with him???
Jan. 8, 2010, 10:11 PM
I'm still bitter he didn't end up in my "barn"!
Jan. 8, 2010, 10:45 PM
He has a great expression on his face- very thoughtful! :yes:

I wonder how you are going to do his tail. Would you show in hand while he is still this young? He does seem very composed though.
Did you breed or purchase him? :)

I can hardly wait to see him at the Royal!!!! I hope his equine partner in the class can jump as well as he can. They would be a shoo-in for the red ribbon for sure. :)

What stunning form! And the ears! I personally love large ears :)

Hahaha I'm glad you guys see the talent as well!
He's my baby. For sure he will be a star!
And go figure all this talent was found on a little amish farm in Lancaster, pa! Good god wouldn't that have been a waste!

:D:D:D I needed that

Too cute. My son has a corgi and he got is first agility title 2 years ago and then decided he was bored with it. Our Corgi loved it and no one in his height group could beat him. They are the best dogs ever. Ours is 9 years old now.

Well, I'll be the first to say FOR SHAME on jumping a 2 yr. old! He's quite likely to go unsound before you ever get him backed.
Aw, love that face!

Mine will not make it in the GP arena. He is more geared to Field Hunter or Eventing. He loves to go flat our Cross Country. Banks, ditches and water are his favourites. Faster, harder, wetter and dirtier the better he goes. He give us plenty of laughs when we are out on the trails.

hahahaha! he is stunning! :-)
Jan. 12, 2010, 03:14 PM
He is remarkable, the entire package for sure!!!

Watch out; mine just turned one so we haven't started jumping him yet. We'll see you in the ring. ;-)
