    Default Tiznow gelding Delaware Park Canter

    I always wanted a Tiznow! If only I needed a 17 hand 5 YO fresh off the track gelding. Love his shoulder and hip.

    Any idea what his temperament is like? And is he just a bit upright in his pasterns? Love him otherwise, and what a nice pedigree.

    Don't love the pasterns, the rest is a big package of yum!

    The photos are not the best, but yeah, it's concerning. I can't tell if he's clubby in his hooves and it would predispose him to navicular if it's indeed the case. But if someone is nearby and doesn't mind checking him out in person to see, I would love to hear and better photos would be a plus. I have a soft spot for big blood bays with chrome.

    If he is still available Saturday we can try to get more pictures. But I think with his size, color, and price he may go fast! Although a lot of people may be put off by the old bow, so who knows!

    Pretty typical of Tiznows: beautiful bodies, great balance, nice shoulder/hip, a real "classic" look about them... but many are upright in their pasterns. I generally love everything about them...until I get to looking down at those front ankles. I don't know enough of them to say if/how it's a soundness issue (most I knew were yearlings still) but it was a fairly common trait among them. The CANTER horse really caught my eye, too, and for the price I bet he's worth a chance!

    Compare photos of Tiznow, and sons at stud American Lion, Colonel John, Tiz Wonderful, and Tizdejavu. Good photography has added a little bit of slope to those pasterns, but they still seem a little upright to me. You can't deny they are classy, good-looking horses, though!

    Yes, you are right - upright and classy good looking horses. I do wonder how their soundness is over time though.

    AJ, glad to find another Tiznow admirer! And those upright pasterns do look genetic! He did pretty well on them, though, raced until 6 I think and won back to back BC Classics. Like I said, if I had an empty stall this guy would already be in it.

    Rugby is upright in his pasterns.

    Area II Open Training Level Champion, 2009.
    Area II Open Novice res. champion, 2007.
    I think he has 7 rec. wins. Including his first Novice rec. event.
    First field foxhunter three seasons.
    Eventing for 8 years.

    I'll take upright in the pasterns FOREVER. And as far as holding up - at 15 he has not lost a step, and is actually getting better and better.

    Well that didn't take long at all. On a whim, I went ahead and called Steve this morning to inquire and this handsome fellow already has a home.

    Its been several years ... 7 maybe 8. So it cant be him but I worked at a breeding farm in the yearling barn ( mostly). We had a Tiznow baby, he was huge and he knew it !! Used his size and "babyness" to his advantage but he was a looker. Sold a Keeneland for $$$$. Seems the size carries to all his babies !!

    Yep, I'd rather have one that's upright than too sloping. They might not be the best movers but my upright-pasterned horses have all been sound as dollars. The long, sloping pasterned horses were gorgeous in the rare moment you could keep them sound.

    I'm glad someone picked him up so I can stop thinking about him. I think he's dreamy, like every other Tiznow I've seen....
