Mmm, he's beautiful!

I agree! The last Grullo stallion posted is gorgeous. Definitely wouldn't mind breeding my grulla mare to a stallion like that.

Well he is standing at stud for a VERY reasonable stud fee ladies and gents!

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

I like big butts and I cannot lie.

I'm going to be the odd ball out and say that I like a little bit of the beefed up look.

There is no longer a "standard" when it comes to quarter horses. THIS is what was originally thought to be "the perfect quarter horse". This actually isn't even a real horse, it's an Orren Mixers depiction of the perfect quarter horse.

Tenessee, I have to agree, that's what I'm hoping to get my mare to eventually look like.

She's got a long way to go, but she's muscling well....

He has some of the better movement and legs that I have seen on the modern halter horse. Some of them have such straight back legs that riding them would be like riding a pogo stick.

I also like that he isn't crazy muscle bound like a lot of them are.

It also makes me happy that all of the stallions at that farm are HYPP n/n!!

Does anyone else find that absolutely hideous?
That is gross. He looks deformed and not happy.

I absolutely love this horse in the very first post! You guys that are saying you don't like his neck...etc, you have to remember that's the style. They shoot for the teeeny necks and feet and ears...etc. but overall, I would have to say this horse has very goos confo, and would do well in a halter class.
Halter nowadays, from my point of veiw, is a bit more judged on beef.
Lets say you have a very big horse with pretty good confo and a smaller horse with great confo, more than likely the bigger horse will win. But when it gets into higher levels of showing, you don't see that. Its either judged on confo and build, or politics.
