    Default CANTER Mountaineer *swoon*

    CANTER Mountaineer put up some new horses and some are truly swoon-worthy. I can't pick out which one I like more of these 2 (maybe the brown guy).

    Urgh. Why do I look at these again?

    FWIW, I've just fallen hard for Advice and Consent; and no, there is no way I can justify getting him. I barely have time to work with my 2 current horses.

    Anyway, just based on pics, description, and pedigree, A&C all the way. If I had to fault something, he looks a tad light through the hind end/hocks and maaayyybee a tiiiiiny bit behind at the knee? (Note: I am trying to find faults to make myself feel better, I think.)

    If I hadn't gotten a 2-yo (now 3-yo) last year, I would totally be looking into A&C further.

    His temperament sounds perfect, his face and ears are off the cuteness charts (hey, never hurts, right?!), and he looks to be pretty well conformed with clean legs.

    (This is my cue to go look at lotto tickets, I suppose....)

    Very strange hind feet on the grey.
    It looks like they are longer than his front feet..

    yeah, I clicked the link, thought "cute horse", looked down and thought "uggggg why did they do that to his feet!!!" I can’t even picture how the coffin bone is sitting in those hind feet, wacky angles, long long toes, no heel. I mean look at the pastern vs. hoof angle?!?! How can a farrier walk away from that thinking that it looks good? The brown by comparison has HEELS and low and behold, his pastern angles match his hooves.

    So what is the consensus? I have heard some track farriers like LONG toes because it gives them "more grab".

    Is there anything to this, or it is just some wives tale that has resulted in some F'ed up TB feet?

    I loooove Advise and Consent. I predict he'll be gone by next week now that his ad has been pointed out!


    If someone on this board gets him, please tell us!

    I think Advise and Consent is by far the best one I've seen in a while.

    I don't care for the shoulder on the gray.

    Of those two, I prefer the brown one. But of the lot of new ones, I want Bolten N Streakin. He looks really nicely put together and he has the cutest face. Perhaps his temperament doesn't reflect his name?

    Fortunately for someone else, I'm broke.

    Just an FYI on R Holy Won....
    Trainer said he was having trouble reaching his farrier so he just pulled the shoes off. He was a bit embarrassed about the horse's feet but wanted ot get him online anyway. FWIW, this trainer's horses are taken care of better than most you see. He is an excellent hand. Notice that neither of his horses (Advise and Consent) have a chain on while handling them.

    Bolten N Steakin is extremely quiet, as is Oughtlands.

    Video links....just finished them...

    ETA: Just realized the grey did have a chain on....but the bay did not.

    Ooh, someone stick Advice & Consent and Keen Runaway on a trailer to Georgia, pretty please. I had a Blushing Groom granddaughter that was awesome and I'd love to have another with him up close.

    Also agree that Al is drool worthy. Look forward to hearing how he does in his new career.

    I really loved Advise and Consent until i saw the jog video he is sound but that one foot looks really clubby in the video way more so than in the photo when you take a hard look and just isolate the feet.

    The gray actualy for all the toe behind was very sound and even.....

    If Bishful Thinking gets sound he will be super elegant. Big risk though. He's very good looking if you don't mind 'em lanky and long, which I don't. I hope he has a soft landing.

    Just bumping this up to let you all know that R Holy Won is sold and will be heading to Colorado. I believe there is a sale pending on Advise and Consent. UL eventer from MI contacted me about finding a vet for a PPE. It was very last minute so I'm not sure yet if they were able to fit that into the schedule or not.

    Jen,
    If possible, could you please put me in contact with whoever is seriously interested in Advise and Consent. I have known him for the last year or so (until he shipped to MNT from KY) and feel that there are several important aspects of his personality that a potential buyer would find helpful.
