    Default Lovely Canter Beauty

    I am probably looking at all the wrong things on this horse, but ah, if I had the room.

    He's not bad. It is a bit of an unflattering picture. I do prefer this guy: http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...ngs&Itemid=342

    The first guy almost looks like a clone of his daddy.

    Speedy caught my eye, too. I don't think you can really compare the two mentions here: Speedy isn't even 3 and the other is coming 5.
    If Speedy would pass PPE with some x-rays, someone ought to snap him up. Let him grow up this year with a lot of 24/7 pasture time and hacking around and bet you'd wind up with a nice, nice horse.

    I REALLY like that Speedy horse too (and love his name!). The other one is nice too but boy, give Speedy another year and some weight and he will be sharp. Great hind end on him....I bet he will jump.


    ETA: Here's his daddy...and boy is he lovely....makes me like Speedy even more

    if someone were looking for a young prospect, might be worth a trip to the track. Couple other nice youngsters on CANTER Kentucky:

    From what I found Bandini is now standing in Saudi Arabia. So there will not likely be too many of the around. And this young guy has a great pedigree all around. He is just at that funky young stage...but you can see he will grow really nicely into himself if you are used to looking at youngsters (who are not overfeed and pumped up).

    Looks like Speedy has a boo boo on his left hock? Otherwise I like his look though he has lots of growing to do.

    Speedy is a Dixieland Band grandson... I had a really nice gelding out of Dixieland and I love how he looks.. If only I were closer!

    I like Speedy way more. I'm not one to pick apart horses much but they look way to straight in the shoulder, I may be wrong.

    Can't believe he is still up. He's a cutie, and with some work would be a nice horse.

    I really, really like Speedy. Can't believe no one has snatched him up yet! If only I had more time...I already have a still-very-green 5 year old who is finally growing into herself, and a 20 year old who only wants to be semi-retired....

    On the other hand, if he needs some time turned out to grow some more, and already hacks out calmly....

    Any possibility someone could get a video?
