This fella caught my eye. I have to say I think he is the nicest successfully shown halter QH I have seen yet.
He looks beautifully balanced, his butt and shoulder are chunky and functionally powerful without being bulging, he has clean legs and decent feet (His hinds look a little posty in the side on picture but I think it is because he is standing a bit underneath himself). He has a great versatile neck set that will work for any discipline, a nice refined head... I really can't pick anything wrong or in excess about this fellow.

DMB THE INNOVATOR
It gives me hope to see that a horse of this quality and obvious functionality has been successful at halter, even is only in AUS. He hasn't been started under saddle yet due to injury but I would bet he is going to have a really comfortable stride and be very trainable - Just because he looks like he is built to ride and built to work.
What are your thoughts? Is this the direction you would like to see the halter world move towards?
Feel free to disagree with me, lol. I was just really taken by this horse as soon as I saw his picture.
