    Default Everything I like, but no.more.horses

    Some COTHer needs to get this guy so I can follow along vicariously. My favorite look, breeding I like, and one of those super old campaigners:

    Or at the other end of the spectrum, young with only 4 starts, but hubba hubba

    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    I love the warhorses, too! Will forward the other one to Erika--she needs a big, lanky, good-moving project.

    Perfect horse name for "that adorable horse you just couldn't say no to..."

    I really like him too. He's the triple threat in my book: built to last, has the race record to prove that he CAN last, and has a kind look in his eye. And not even a very difficult saddle fit, other than having a short back!

    Oh, Money Issues reminds me of my CANTER boy I got 3 years ago....also 2003 gelding, also LONG race record, and same size, and even same price! He's my true war horse and surprising me with more every day. Just love him, and hope Money Issues gets a great home too. You cannot go wrong with these guys. We're going to try evening for first time in 2013, can't wait!!!

    I absolutely adore Money Issues. Adore. A.D.O.R.E. Sigh...
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    (can't help myself. Just got this one emailed by the trainer to my phone and got the powerful urge to go buy a powerball ticket)

    Big Fat Ditto.
    I keep looking and looking and looking at her.
    Someone please tell me something that is glaringly wrong... I'm looking for a project horse to use as my senior capstone project....have to design a product. What better product and project then a project horse to try and sell at the end of the semester?
    (Someone please talk me out of this idea...haha.)

    I think he is just standing all sorts of funky in both pics. He is 2 and very big for his age. Just looking at the length from stifle to hock, this guy is going to be huge. I have two 3 yrs olds right now that looked a LOT like this in the rear end as 2yr olds. One a colt and one a filly. With some maturing and lots of hill work the funky in them worked itself out and they are BOTH fabulous movers. The thing this horse has over them is the set of his neck on his shoulder....much better! If I had to be really picky I would say long cannons...and his elbow looks tight. Probably a bit narrow but again....let him grow up and I bet he will wow people.
