    Wow,what an awesome find! He's definitely got the Standardbred head.. :)
    The gait you mentioned,does he move his legs laterally (both legs on the same side moving at same time) or diagonally (one leg on each side moving at same time)? If they're moving laterally,then he is probably "pacing". My neighbors used to have a retired Standardbred racer that I exercised for them who paced,and it was SO smooth! Felt a little strange at first,but once you get the rhythm it is a super smooth ride that covers ground quickly. Seeing your guy makes me miss those rides!

    Awww, I just love those big old Standardbred heads. Some people say they're ugly but I say they look dignified and sort of old fashioned. Cow horses and other working horses in old pictures often have big "plain" heads. He looks like an honest boy.
