Your horse has several good horses in his line. Man O' War, Swaps, Nashua, Hyperion (twice actually because Hyperion and Eclaire are Khaled's sire and dam). I worked with a son of Nashua when I was a groom/excercise rider for I-5 Downs. He was a good horse. Pretty level headed. Your horse also is related to Seattle Slew by three...maybe four..horses. I worked with him once too. Nice TB but nippy. LOL

That's cool! My friend's mare is a granddaughter of Secretariat, she had an . . . Unfortunate accident though . . . Broke her neck.

Swaps met an unfortunate end too.

TB are great horses but they are also delicate. They injure easily. That's why they started Warmbloods. You have the TB versatility but the strength of a draft as far as structure. That is also the very reason allot of people cross out to Arabs. Did you know that an Arab can actually carry more than a QH?

Megan didn't die. She's still alive and has made a full recovery. My old trainer rode her a month ago :) It's a miracle

That's wonderful news! Very fortunate horse.

Say could you tell me how to make my horse show up under the "Horses" tab like yours does? Lad has a profile.

Oh OK. I'll do that. I have had him for two weeks and have been so busy with him I have not taken photos of him. LOL!

Here is a picture of William - Sam's third cousin twice removed ;)~. No, I'm not really sure about all that, but I know they are related.

Thanx, macnachtan. Sam isn't nippy though, LOL. He may fall asleep on you while you're rasping his hooves, thinking you'll hold him up, but other than that, he's great. I love him to DEATH .
Broken neck?! Yikes!! I've seen vids of horses landing face-first after catching a jump pole 'tween the legs, and their necks just...shwoop - collapse under the weight of their body. Ick.

I think the only reason Hughie (Seattle Slew's nick name) was nippy is because they kinda allowed it. They thought it was cute the way he did it. Not a smart thing to allow a stud to do but luckily it never got out of hand.
