    He needs more than a " little" fattening up! That is one thing that always bothered me about racing- fit- thoroughbreds! Pretty boy with an intelligent, kind expression.

    Smarty! No points for brilliant deductions.!!!

    I suspect she meant breeding!!!
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Where is that thread about how BIG and GRAY were automatic price-raisers for CANTER horses?

    Love those ears! I read somewhere (maybe here?) that large ears are a sign of intelligence in horses.

    His head won't look so big once he's filled out.

    Right?? He's a bargain at 2500 I wish I were in the position to even think about driving up there. Alas, I work for the government and they're telling us to prepare for furloughs this spring. But I'll happily enable my friends at COTH!

    I have called about him, last week, no one has returned my calls, I had questioned the small amount of starts, and then the 2 month break he had, I could only figure maybe he had injured himself after reading the race comments, then never really came back! It's so hard for these big guys!

    I looked at him too, but would have to buy sight unseen as driving down to see him in this weather isn't an option! He has some of the same relatives as my recently departed and beloved OTTB. :')

    If anybody is in the area and would consider visiting to take pics and/or video, I'd pay for your time!

    Too bad I don't have $2500 burning a hole in my pocket. Or he'd be mine.

    I like what I an see of him, can't see his legs well or his feet at all. Looks to be a very nice type.

    He may be a smidge long in the back, although I'd say it's balanced out by the ears. That's how conformation works, right??

    Absolutely! LOL! But the back doesn't look weak so its all good

    My all time favorite horse was of this type, longish back, big - yet feminine- head, big ears, and grey.
