My Standardbred, Midnite, is just as beautiful! Please look at him on my horses page! It's funny, because I have a friend who used to own Standardbreds that he raced at the local harness track, and I used to go with him a lot and hang out on the backstretch. I never liked the Standardbred build, and they all seemed to have oddly long heads with big ears. I thought they were some of the ugliest horses I had seen! So when a different friend of mine called to say that she was going to look at a pair of horses, a Paint and a Standardbred, and she was buying the Paint and she wanted to know if I wanted the Standardbred, I was skeptical. She insisted that the horse was beautiful, but I highly doubted I would like him. But when I saw him, I fell in love! He was the most beautiful horse I had ever seen in real life (instead of on a calendar or soemthing). He's shorter and stockier than most Standardbreds, and has an amazing head, especially compared to the other Standardbreds I've seen. He's even prettier than my Thoroughbreds! And that's saying something!
