Huh! Fascinating! I guess you do learn something new everyday.
I loved his front legs too. They were so sturdy looking, and very well conformed. Now if I could just stick them on a horse with a better attitude (he hated everyone, always trying to bite, run away with people, that sort of thing, he just needed some love and training that we couldn't give him) and better bodily conformation+better back legs, I'd be in love.
While we're talking, let's just get rid of his jughead and put a nicer looking head on him. We had to use a standard horse sized halter on him because his muzzle couldn't fit into a cob one.
