    Default One Year Later (updated post 43) I'm vetting this guy today!!

    http://www.pedigreequery.com/full+canvas

    God I hope he passes!!!

    He's 3, has a lovely, lovely willing temperament and I really want him to come home!!!

    Here's video of me trying him - his second week off the track.

    Here he is showing how eager he is (second time jumping) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N61Sv...yer_detailpage

    Don't worry, he will have lots of time to grow up/mature at our place before he starts jumping with any regularity.

    Vetting is at 3 so I'll post an update tonight. Fingers crossed!!!

    Fingers crossed. I had a Cozzene son once. He had the greatest personality. I really like the pedigree on your guy. fingers crossed.
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    All appendages are crossed for you!

    With both His Majesty and Graustark, you know that he might be HUGE. I don't think Ribot necessarily threw huge, so size just might come from the Flower Bowl side of the family.

    I adore his pedigree, and he just looks lovely under saddle! He's going to be wonderful over time, and I hope he has a good PPE so that future can be with you!

    Default Wow

    I really like him and can't believe how amazing he is 2 weeks off the track. When I am ready to get another ottb, I'll be looking for something a lot like that

    I LOVE Mizzen Mast- I think he's one of the best-looking TBs at stud these days. And the rest of the pedigree is great too. Double-bred Caro! Pleasant Tap! Lyphard! And he looks so happy at work. Fingers crossed for you and Henry!
