Standies can have some PRETTY heads! I absolutely love looking at the standardbreds for adoption here: adoptahorse

Take a look at Prince Magento - he just seem to be a big, handsome beast of a horse. I wish he was at their NJ farm, because I would definitely go take a look at him.

Their heads are not ugly - I think the complete opposite - they're noble, bold and very beautiful. Some standies might have a larger head but then the Warmblood is also a big-headed horse breed and nobody calls them ugly! :)

It's not the size of the head it's the shape.

And Halla carried her rider Hans-Guenther Winkler to a gold medal at the Olympics all by herself. He had a broken collar bone and could barely stay on board, let alone stir.

I have also heard a few stories of standardbreds who take care of their people. A friends horse turned into a contortionist to keep them in the saddle. Heck, I think my own mare regards me as the equivalent of a three year old child who needs constant monitoring and protection. I walked her through a patch of horrible thorns the other week. She stopped and just calmly started to pull them out of her shoulders and front legs before we continued on our ride. They were not big enough thorns to cut her skin but prickly and irritating to touch.
