Diddly has a half roman nose... He has the strangest shaped face I have EVER seen, but his sire seems to throw horses with this face shape, even though he doesn't have it himself.
They all have a roman nose coming through, which stops half way, so he has a small bump in the middle of his face!
I am not sure if you can see it, but its above the noseband...

CandyCanes- I see it! That's weird... If I didn't know any better I would think he broke his nose or something

Yes... It is very weird alright. Its so strange how his sire has a perfectly normal face, yet all the foals he throws have this bump. I've seen a number of diddlys half sisters for sale and the face is always the same!!!


There we are... A definite bump!

Any breed can have a roman nose. They are usually associated with the more baroque type horses. I don't think a slight roman nose is ugly, and years ago, at an auction there was a horse there with a massive roman nose, and if I had the extra $$ I would have purchased him.
He had a kind and intelligent eye . I have seen quite a few draft mixes with roman noses, usually Belgium cross . I would rather see a roman nose, than the seahorse looking big nostrils small mouthed horses.

May be a bit hard to tell from this picture but my BelgianX has a bit of a roman nose going on. I love to kiss it.

I saw a horse with a very nice dished head. Owner claims its arabian the BLM brand on its neck suggests something different. I figured I would not mention that because if the owner wants an arabian this horse can pass and is a good match for them. Besides BLM who knows what is or isn't in that gene pool.

Oh Wow. That's a stunning head in my opinion. Love that bump!! Gives an element to the head without it being overdone. Looks noble and elegant.


Loving the roman nosed horses in this thread as well! Subbing!

Rookie- arabians can be branded using the alpha angle brand as well. It was more common 10-20 years ago because technicians are difficult to get out now, but it looks just like the blm brand.

Would you count this as a Roman Nose or just big and ugly lol?

My horse has a massive head - it is perfectly snuggly but not very well constructed.

Im not a huge fan of roman noses honestly..sometimes they look ok..other times...just plain odd lol....i will keep to my dished noses on my arabs...i like the refined look with their big expression filled eyes..also easier to tell when theyre plotting against you with those huge eyes :p lol
