For some reason, even though there are things that annoy me about his conformation, I keep going back to this guy. His face is just so sweet looking, and personally I think his scars give him character.
"One reason why horses are happy is because they are not trying to impress other horses."
"Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction"
I think he's absolutely lovely. The way he's built reminds me of a fox-hunter I used to know who was "retired" to teach the kiddies how to jump, and was sent off to ride out a few times a year. Last I knew, he was still sound in his late 20's.
I don't see any glaring faults and his pedigree is FABULOUS for sport. A grandson of Unbridled with a cross of Damascus and (be still my heart!) Buckpaser via Spend a Buck, who he somewhat resembles. One of the most enjoyable and "chilled out" young TB's I ever rode was a Spend A Buck grandson.
