Glad to hear I'm not crazy, or at least my perspective wasn't so terribly skewed as a child!
My uncle and great uncle used to have ranches next to each other. Foundation bred bulldog qh's on the right, mammoth tank TWH's on the left! I remember riding the fences with my uncle and having to hold on for dear life to my tiny black Arab when we went by the greats place. I was scared to death of his horses, they made my uncles 15hh 1,500 lb. Qh Look like a pony. Their chests were three times as wide as me and their super long necks were like snakes. Ready to snatch me or any kid for that matter over the fence. I was terrified and amazed by the stud, he was a bold chestnut and the only word to call him was AMAZING.
When I was horse shopping last year I looked at a few and thought I was going nuts! These wernt the giants I remembered! They were tall but had narrow chests, slender builds, and some with incredibly ugly heads. Not my cup of tea. After seeing the other thread I see what I remembered, glad a few are still out there!
