    Picture of Antares bridle after oiling?

    Does anyone have a picture of their Antares bridle after oiling? I want to get an idea of how dark it will be as well as the shade of brown. Pics on a darker horse would also be great. Thanks!

    I agree with Bayhawk. Breeders need to make money and will definitely sell their best to people they know and trust. Of course, the price has to be right too :-).

    They buy in Europe because a quality 4 - 6 year old with a successful show record will be cheaper in Europe than in North America even including import costs.
