    I haven't heard anything back for Big Chex to Cash yet and haven't called the owners of Hot Dam. She is out of an ROM WCH/reining stallion (The Flashy King) who is by Boogies Flashy Jac on top. On bottom, she is out of a daughter of Little Tequila Lena who is the biggest point earner out of Smart Little Lena.

    She was never shown reining because she broke her leg as a weanling and I didn't have the money to send her into showing (with the risk she wouldn't stay sound for competition,) sooo, she is my little all around horse. We've sorted, cow caught, played with barrels, trails, and competed in Extreme Cowboy races (where she has won a buckle and a couple hundred bucks with some other prizes.)

    I actually plan on putting her through training while my babies are young and trying to get a couple points/dollars won on her in the novice classes. Idk how well we'd do, but she is smart and is easily taught, so I don't think we'll have a problem as long as we can get her sliding again and get her spins better with her foot planted a bit more. Anyways! Lol, these pics are from this summer when she was at the breeder's. She is bred to Hydrive Cat (By Highbrow Cat). That was the last time I tried to take confo pics.

    She has a couple faults, like her longer back, her being slightly turned out in the back, and her being downhill. Feel free to tell me any more!

    She does have a slightly longer back, but it's still within the range of normal, IMHO. If it were a weak back, then I'd be worried, but it's not. Slightly toed out on the back isn't a bad thing, most good horses are a little bit and it keeps those stifles free-moving.

    IMO, her knees and hocks appear to be set just a touch high, but not too bad...and that appearance might actually just be from looking at the sideways pictures LOL. Plus, all 3 of the good stallions that have been posted in this thread have nice low-set joints there.

    One thing about Hot Dam you might want to verify...he looks clubby on that left front and could possibly be on the right as well (hard to tell just looking at the heel of that foot in the pic on his site). If he is and they can't prove that it's not genetic, then I wouldn't look at him again.

    Dang, now you got me all excited for the Hydrive foal coming next summer. He's one heck of a stunning stally.

    At the time we did the photo shoot (the pics I posted, not what's on their site), HD was NOT at all club footed looking or hi/low in the heels. He didn't look clubby when he arrived there or when I worked with him. If he's looking that way now, I gotta suspect the farrier.

    DA, I'm really glad you're familiar with the stud as I would have likely discounted him completely based on that one picture. If you say he wasn't clubby when you saw him, then I'd trust you and agree that it's likely a crappy farrier, or maybe a lack of farrier.

    I don't know why they're using those crap pics of him. They paid the photog for the rights to the ones I posted (and I have rights as well for the copy
    right freaks out there). If all I saw was the pic they have on their site, and never saw a better or never saw him in flesh, I wouldn't go for him either. Since I spent a solid week working with him, grooming him and prepping him every day for the shoot, I would have seen a club if it existed then. And I am H*LL on club feet. Won't touch a horse with one.

    ^^Just browsing some of the other studs that they are standing there and I can honestly say that their farrier sucks. There are a couple of others that appear clubby, one who's angles on the front are massively different, all in all, not impressive .

    Yeah, a good farrier makes a heck of a difference. I've also been told she is an itty bitty bit set high in her knees/hocks that could make her not competitive at an open level by a trainer I took a couple lessons on, so that's a possibility, although no one else has mentioned it when I've had her evaluated by breeders and a couple other trainers.

    Finding and keeping a decent farrier here absolutely sux. I have not had a real farrier in almost 2 years. My husband trims and files and at least "does no harm" but I wouldn't call the trim jobs fantastic. Most of the so called farriers here are cowboys looking to make some money to go to the next rodeo and "POOF" they're gone and you never see 'em again.

    Ouch! I've had some good, some bad over the past few years. I've got a really nice farrier who measures the angles and will get the horse correct and the same angle on both feet. He is new to me, but man, I wanna keep him! Josie was traveling soooo much better!
