    Default So proud of my homebred what do you think!

    So proud of our homebred draft cross - he had a fabulous season and is now ready for level 3 - no one could beat is in the ring and we captured the canadian title.

    Let me know what you think - we have several of his siblings available for sale -

    What a great pair you make. Did you have to get special permission to ride without a bridle? It shows the wonderful foundation of trust between the two of you! Nicely done!

    Bravestrom, he looks better and better! And such a noble head!

    Definitely one to watch for the future!

    Absolutely breath taking!!

    I would be interested in any that you have for sale.

    Do you think "Mooses" would do well in Ga.? Very hot and humid during the summer time.

    Default Wow!

    What a body your horse has! He looks amazing. And I love the moose head costume. Looks like you hit the genetic jackpot!

    I love Canadians!! Is there any way I could get a sibling, but ship him home every summer? I think the CO winters would suit, but the summers might be a little hot.

    Ths scary thing is I have seen far fuglier crosses on CL!!

    He is stunning, those antlers will really get him noticed by the judges!

    I can't quite tell from the pic; is it just the angle of the sunlight or did you bling out his antlers? Because if that's the natural shine, I'm concerned about how he would do in our Hunter rings. You know how we hate to stand out. If you had one that was all a nice quiet bay, though, I think you'd have a good market here.

    Impressive rack there eh.
    Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
    Sam: A job? Does it pay?
    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

    What I really like about the moose cross is that there is no mane, so braiding it out. This means you can spend more time on the antlers.

    Such a nuisance when they shed their velvet though. I hear in the halter ring, they use spray-on velvet!

    It is amazing how the antlers help balance in the one tempi changes. Not so much for the lengthenings though.

    Hmmm.... I for one am not impressed. The angle of the antlers clearly shows the "false frame" that comes from being ridden in rollkur. I don't see true relaxation at the poll. (I actually don't see the poll, but I am sure it is not relaxed.)

    Just goes to show how judges reward a nice rack and couldn't care less about the classic foundations. Hmph.

    This is true but if the OP would take the time to understand her moosie's moosinality then she would better understand how to get the proper performance without the use of rolkur.
