Tryst, the pics were a bit older. His feet have since been taken care of but thank you :)

I have worked closely with a chiropractor and she said said he was fine. She has done work on him however. As far as his hind end, its rather more of "one bad leg" issue that I constantly face. On his rear left we have had a strained gaskin, torn stifle, bone chip and a deep tissue injury on that hip. Can horses have cursed legs? Ha.

And yes he is more TB than QH. His sire is Flaming Jet, an own son of Jet deck which is a line riddled with a lot of TB. His TB side he is a great grandson of Seattle slew

Hi - I have a question for you - I am sorry it's little off topic - may I know what saddle make / model you use on him? Does it fit him? The one in the pictures...! Because my gelding has that SAME exact build.. (he's ASB - so yeah big wither just like your boy ;).. I have been trying to find just a plain flap close contact saddle to fit.. yours looks like it could be Crosby? Thank you!

Yes it is a Crosby! I have to use a riser pad with it, but it works wonderfully. I also can ride him in a Steuben Krefeld. He goes very nice in that as well :)

I have to double check on the model. I will ask my trainer. I bought it from her 10 years ago, and she herself bought it from a close friend. Its old and well used but SUPER COMFORTABLE. I love it.

It is a medium tree. My stueben krefeld is also a medium tree and it fits him perfecty without a riser pad or anything. I think those are getting a little harder to find though

<---- can you please let me know also the model of the Stubben Krefeld as well as the Crosby? It's been hell to fit this horse! Krefeld is the old line handmade in Germany, but they had different models too, Siegfried was one of them :) Is he 31 width on the Stubben?

Thanks a TON!

That crosby is mine and I bought it from my trainer 8-9 years ago. I was letting her borrow it because her stuebben didn't fit very well.

As for the model, I'm not real sure. I bought it from my trainer who bought it from hers and it's 30 years old
