'Big lick'' doodle

Ok, it'd not really a ''big lick'' horse.. no pads etc and definetly not a TWH :P

I don't know why I made it, really. I find that ''sport'' abusive and cruel, even without soring I can't see how anyone would do that to their horse, the bits, the tensions and the extreme and unatural movements, the pads and the way the horses have to live to be able to perform alone tells me that it cannot be sound or anything but cruel. The conformation makes me think of german shepherds and all of their hip problems etc,..

But I can't deny that despite my bad feelings, the artistic mind in me appreciates the powerful look in that very moment the strength and even the pain in the animals eyes as they're forced into this frame by who knows what means, the bits and the shoes, and how they yet manage to look so proud.
I guess this is the prettiest I can imagine it.

I havn't tried to capture any feeling in the horse, which is unusual for me, but the drawing makes me think of old knight tales and an era where horses were necessary and their feelings and minds couldn't be taken too much into concideration. Where perfect performance is the important rather than the spirit.

Well, that's just me. ^__^ Oh, and while I appreciate thoughts and comments on the doodle, I do not wish for any discussion on my view on the big lick sports. If you want to discuss that, do it in the gaited forum. I won't care much what you say either way since what I see in the show ring is enough, and yes, I know not all TWH are trained that way and I have nothing against a decent, gaiting horse, no matter the gait :)
My comment and description is only a little background for the image, a peek into my mind as I made it, nothing more, nothing less.
