Unfortunately Spirit Thyme did not make top ten at nationals, but he's a cute boy! :)
I got to meet some upcoming stallions in person at nationals, so here's my list :)
This is KM Bugatti, GORGEOUS hunter. He's a sweet guy in person, though not as tall as you'd expect.
His sire is Versace, one that I've been in love with for forever! He sired many top sires, but he has passed away :(
Just Joe, A son of Versace, who is not very well-known YET, but I saw him at nationals and fell in love. He went top ten, should have gotten reserve IMO. Don't have a photo :(
ENZO!! Love this boy. Love the foals, love love love! His head is the best I've ever seen IMO. It's so wide and lovely, and it is definitely a signature he passes to his foals. Padrons Psyche x Bey Shah mare. He's gorgeous as a hunter as well.
My favorite Enzo son is Eden C, who just won junior stallions at nationals: (note the perfect ears...)
I DO like Pikhasso as a hunter, I wasn't a fan until he was about 3 though, he looked to Qh-ish until then. I'm still iffy about pinto arabs, but he is a nice boy :)
I have to post EKS Bey Al Gazal (who should have won senior stallions!!! instead of reserve hehe). I have him on my wall, actually :)
Oh! And my favorite sport stallion is SH Redemption! I'm seriously thinking about using him as a future sire... him & Bugatti.
Hm, I believe that's all. Not overboard at all, it's so hard to choose!!
