I agree, the first stallion has a much finer head than is typical of the breed. The second stallion is more of the norm with his head, from my experience.

I'm a sucker for a big, manly roman nose. That second stallion is yum!

It's nice to see some standies that are in shape, well-fed, groomed, etc...
I only ever see the Amish buggy horses around here, and they are so sad

He's a gorgeous horse for sure!
I was going to say most Standerbred I've seen have been not so pretty but I was thinking of Saddlebreds.

I have two real goofy looking (one is just...UGLY! Lol maybe she mature nicer) but the other produces nice so there can be hope for some not-so-pretties.

Aww these guys are beautiful! The only STB I ever met was ugly and mean. Very difficult guy to work with. I attributed his nastiness to his rough past and not the breed though.

I personally think all horses are beautiful!!!! Some have ugly manners though.....

My stb mare is beautiful, but I'm of course biased! She's got a finer head than most, my avatar makes it look longer than it is but she fits into a smaller halter and bridle than the common standie. But god I love this breed!

Holy hell!! If I didnt see that freeze brand I would mistake it for another breed!

Beautiful horses-I rode some Standardbreds on my teens-had to go find them on their open range pasture-so the rides weren't long-haha!

I hate peope that generalise every standardbred to a particular stereotype! If people wern't so biased maybe not as many would be left to starve or be sold to the knackery!
I have a gorgeous girl, her head is big but it is in perfect proportion to her 15.3hh body and although not like an arabian which would look ridiculous on her is very beautiful!!

I don't mean to offend anyone! (just in case) but im pretty passionate about this as my girl was in a horrifying condition when I got her and if there wasnt as much discrimination maybe she wouldnt have been treated like that!
